I guess that’s teamwork for you

So far so good, week two working out with Skittles during the day at the gym. Week two of running trainer done now. Feeling pretty good doing the trainer, though it feels like such a short workout right now — at about 20 minutes, which includes a 5 minute warm up and a 5 minute cool down.

Usually, I’ll finish up, then just walk some more to keep the heart pumping until Kit hits her goal, about 3 miles or so, but I feel like such a slacker just walking it, even briskly, as she’s trying to run. So today, after the running trainer, I glanced over and she was just around 2 miles, I was feeling okay, so I decided to keep doing some 90 second running intervals just to music. So just as I was cranking back up for a run interval, I kind of half-way noticed she was slowing down. By the time I was done, she was back jogging, so I just kept going. Walking and jogging, I put in an extra mile doing 3 more intervals, then did the cool-down.

What’s funny is, afterwards she comments “Way to go!” and tells me that she was ready to quit at 2 miles today, but since I was still going, she kept going. Only, I was just pushing it because I thought she was still going. If we’d only communicated better we might have both slacked off, but as it was we unintentionally motivated the other to keep going!

No climbing today, but we did do our workout machine circuit — minus the rowing machine which somebody had just put so many weight plates on that the notion of removing and putting them all away was just daunting since it’s so near the end of our routine. Had to seriously cut back weight and reps on the arms today, because I was really feeling pain and weakness in the left one. Both biceps and triceps were killing me after our bit of Tuesday climbing, but I think I’ve moved past that overall. I’m still just not quite right on that left side. Good thing I get to see Dale again tomorrow.

Some notes for next time:

1) Take my fit-pod to see if it will record my runs for Nike+

2) Drink more water before and after, was feeling really light headed turning to headachy after working out, which I have to blame on dehydration
