In 7 Days I Logged 16 hrs 10 min of Training & the Calluses to Prove it ;)

I met my goal today. I wanted to log at least15 hours of training in 1 week and I did it! Sunday, February 13th – today Saturday February 19th 16 hours and 10 minutes logged training. That breaks down to 9 hours and 5 minutes lifting weights and 7 hours and 5 minutes of cardio. This is awesome =)

I set an alarm and hauled C off to the gym early today for BODY PUMP!!! That’s the class that led to my weights obsession and I haven’t been since mid-January. It was a new release with Jackie and Betty team teaching it so it was a great class I’m glad I made it. They’re both moms too. Some of the strongest and most committed female weight lifters out there happen to be moms to the pre-k sect. I think that’s a statistic to be proud of. A lot of women who compete in figure are moms too. I guess all that baby lifting sends us for the iron by toddlerhood ;) Body Pump plus 45 minutes on the stairs accounted for my first visit to Gold’s today and on the second I trained my back (gotta grow those lats!). I decided at the very end of my back workout to try for a real pull-up. It’s been a secret goal of mine to do real pull-ups. I haven’t declared it though, because despite knowing at least two other REALLY fit women who can’t do them, it’s embarrassing. I mean I can manage a lot of weight at a lot of other things, but not my own body weight at a single pull-up. What’s the deal with that? I managed 7/8 of one though ands that was at the end of my back session. I then was able to pull off 1 ½ with a reverse narrow grip, but that’s cheating. I tried for another “real” wide grip one, but only made it ¾ of the way. I’m going to go for it on a day soon after cardio (so I’m pumped up) but before touching any weights. I bet I can do it now =)
