Back to the Grind

Happy (delayed) New Years! Today marked the first day of normal at work since the holidays. It’s good to get back in to the swing of things, but I won’t complain about the shortened days and laid back atmosphere the last few weeks!

This morning I got myself out of bed at 5:30 am and headed to the gym for a leg workout. Because of the holidays I feel like my workouts have been all over the place so it was nice to start a routine for this week again.

When I headed over to do some cardio ALL of the Stairmasters and ellipticals were being used (at 7 in the morning!) A lot of determined people at the gym. So I jumped on the treadmill and improvised an incline walk/sprint workout.

15 min incline

It was pretty short but after doing deadlifts, leg press, and lunges my legs felt pretty heavy.

Random Thoughts from the weekend:

-It snowed a little bit but not enough to stick and it is all gone today.  How is it January 7th and there is still no snow on the ground??

-I need a new book to read…any suggestions?

-HOCKEY IS BACK! And it’s just in time, The Bears aren’t in the playoffs so I need something to watch again.


-I’m still not good at bowling.  In 2 games I didn’t get one strike. Sad.

Now off to watch the BCS game/The Bachelor.  Roll Irish?
