Thanks, Jay.

I'm off to a yoga class right now. I'm sort of treading water for the time being, my kid's not doing so well and I'm just....coping, that's all I can do. It's always sumpin'!

Couldn't do the yoga class---it was too fast and aggressive for me. This was my first try at a yoga class post-operatively. That's okay, I had a good morning anyway.

I did a 2k on the C2 10:01 (yikes! will I ever get an 8:25 time again?)
Then I did:

2 sets of 10 squat/pick up/overhead lifts with a 15 lb. DB. Felt good.
2 sets of 10 declined situps
2 sets of 10 back ext.
3 sets of 5 angled body rows on the Smith machine.

Felt much better after all that.

*gulp*

I think I am going to try the C2 Holiday Rowing Challenge.

It's 200,000 meters between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Eve.

I did it last year, near my peak of fitness, and it was tedious, but not difficult. This year, I row a 2K in about 10 min. (as opposed to my best time of 8:25). And 2K tires me at that pace. I figure I will have to do roughly 4 sets of 2K, about an hour of rowing a day. (This takes into account a missed day or two) I think I finished last year around Dec. 19th, because I rowed 10K a day most days after Thanksgiving. That would do me in!

This is a big challenge for me this year. Last year I bought myself the reward sweatshirt, and it remains a treasure of mine. I really want another sweatshirt...))) What some people won't do for token clothing!

So today, it's "Hi-ho, hi-ho, off to the Y I go!" in order to row, row, row.................

Wish me luck.
Susie

Thanks, Steve!

I did better than I thought I would today.

I rowed a 5K at 26:26, then took a short break, rowed a second 5k at 27:10. I feel pretty good. The first time is around the 50th percentile for women my age range who keep C2 records.

I think I will enjoy completing this challenge because....well, it's challenging!

Today: 5000 meters: 27:28
2000 meters: 10:45

Total to date: 17,000 meters, only 183,000 meters to go.

I'm glad I'm doing this.

Susie;

What an excellent challenge and goal to set for yourself.

Pace yourself, take a rest day when needed, go big other days when you feel really strong.

You'll be wearing that shirt mid Jan.
