My gym floors are being redone this week, so there are no classes, although the schedule so that was yoga this morning. I got all the way to the gym only to find out that the schedule on the website is wrong. ugh.  I had an incredibly busy weekend, with a visit to see my mom and daughter, drove back up and spent some quality time with dh. My closest work friend got a promotion so I will be Talking to her a lot less. I'm sort of sad, but at the same time I am very happy for her new adventure. My husband put a bug in my ear this weekend, agreeing to move closer to where my mother lives, and also where my daughter goes to school, if we can both find jobs there.

He "says "that he could force his son to go to school there, as well. I do not think that is the best Situation with my stepson, however, it would be the best situation for my mom. There would be a lot of "hoops "for us to get through, but it is possible. However, one step at a time. I have work today, and I wish I had yoga tonight, but perhaps I will just try to swim some laps, although I fear my shoulder will act up again. What are you all up to?

How frustrating with the gym schedule. That sounds like a fun plan w/ your family moving closer, although it seems like a big change for just a few years w/ daughter.  I'm about two hours away from my son and happy it's not farther than that. Please telll me I'm being overly emotional because I still have times when I'm teary and it's been over a week!  I need a life!

I went for a walk w/ a friend this morning and have a ton of errands with it being the first day of school.  I did a crossfit type class yesterday where we did the clean and jerk.  It's a lot at once and I do worry about injuries when you're trying to lift your max.  When I went to an olynpic lifting personal session, I wasn't allowed to even try the clean and jerk w/ light weights until well into the session. Yesterday, I was doing 85 lbs pretty quickly but I know my form wasn't right.  I think w/ something like that, you need to build up all the small underused muscle groups first.  Anyway, the instructor was impressed and said he'd love to work w/ me and have me compete.  At my size/body type, he said it would be perfect.  I'm so not into competition and lifting!  But, it was a nice compliment. I did do unassisted pull ups w/ 5 lbs on my back. Then again, I'm happy enough that I can do pull ups, I don't know what the point is in going heavier.  Bah humbug, I'm just not into max lifting; I'll stick with the baby stuff.

Fresh, that is really odd about your gym floors. My gym is also redoing the floors and has been closed since Friday.

Okay, call me crazy but me and my son, my twin sister, and our other sister's son and daughter are all going to do this next month: http://www.warriordash.com/ It looks to be very interesting.

I have to work this evening so I will probably try to get in a few miles this afternoon. I've actually been jogging the past week to get prepared for the race but since the race looks more about the obstacles than the running, I think I'll be fine.

Oh wow Jean how nice! I don't like to compete anymore in anything. I think it is more not wanting to dedicate myself to training than actually competing.

Those pull-ups are impressive! I could barely get my own body weight up and over the bar. I have had to stop doing pull-ups since my elbow injury.

I've heard good things about the warrior dash. I can't wait to hear about it. I'm doing a diva dash in a couple of weeks but the more I see about it, the more I'm thinking it's going to be a giggly "you go girl" type event that will drive me crazy. I want women empowered to do big things, not women giggling and tip toeing through.

My sister did a Dirty Divas run two weeks ago and she was a little disappointed as far as being challenged. She said the obstacles really didn't take much effort but it was a fun experience.

It doesn't look too difficult. That's why we want to parkour it as a group!  I have the feeling there will be far too many people to have the space to do anything but just the basic climb overs, though. I did the cargo net on Sunday, with the bottom hanging and it was challenging. But, with it attached, it's a step tougher than a ladder!
