Gladiator in Training

My intent to go to the gym after work for once actually worked tonight! Daddy-O left work early to pick up all three kids which allowed me to go to the gym solo and unencumbered - what a novelty!

I did 15 minutes on the elliptical machine, 10 minutes on the treadmill (without peeing my pants - yay) and then I did a 60 minute Body Pump class (weight lifting with lots of reps set to music in a group setting). I am very proud of myself and I know I'm going to be sore tomorrow. I'm on a mission to tone my office ass and get my flat, tone stomach back. I say no to plumpness!

My friends and I signed up for the Gladiator Rock and Run race at the Irvine Great Park on June 8th, so I really need to be building my endurance and strength. Otherwise I may just be hanging out at the beer garden at the finish line instead of tackling the obstacles like a stud.  But really, I'm having buyer's remorse; I should have just signed up to be a cheerleader on the sidelines. I'm not quitting now though.

All this in the name of recreation and work life balance!
