An hour of stairs will make your head spin for sure

The first time Stair Master came out I was way younger than I am now, and probably in peak physical shape for age at that time. I got on that thing and ground away....in about 10 minutes I really thought I was going to get very friendly with an EMT.

I do try to "take the stairs" whenever I can, but I do find myself getting a weird kinda dizzy as I keep going up landing after landing. Not sure if it's the "round and round" the landings or the monotony of the stair edges creating a vertigo.

edit: one of the stair exercises I do with a womens'group is to do squats up a steep step of stairs leading up from a beach. We go at the stairs in a side way stance and do squats up the stairs while doing bent arms curls in front of our chest. "Run" down the steps and repeat for several other repeats.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Bleecher sprints are an excellent conditioning method for general finess. I would avoid them if you have knee problems, due to numerous times you have to walk downstairs
I created a version I called "bleacher high steps"
Do the same thing but step over the seats themselves. This will anger your thighs like barbell squats. You will be surprised the extent that balance plays in bleacher high steps.

Yesterday delt day:

-lateral dumbbell raises
-upright barbell rows
-incline push-ups

No aerobics since its 95 in LA. Must............cool.........off

Hey Susan, I stopped by your pad yesterday after work (~2) no one in sight.

No work today, I went for a bike ride drove to bar
M trailhead. 8-9 miles north of town. Got ready and.....
...... Broke the key off in the truck door while locking
But I had another one in my car in town.

Rode a mile and a half of rocky single track, then cut over to the bike trail back to town 8 miles downhill. Got the key and chugged bag up the hill,
-wheeze-
Did another mile and a half of technical mtn biking; a three mile mtn bike ride, with an 18 mile detour!
Then went to rec center, worked out, weights,100 pull-ups, abs, four laps of the pool.

I'm beat! 4th grade special ed tomorrow at 8!

Hmm, flat pass, I'm going to have to buy a mtn bike trail guide

Here's our am workout this mornin. Gittin strong!

Team of three. One climbs, the other tries to haul the load to the top before the climber tops out and gets lowered. Repeat 4x

Just a 25lb wieght is brutal, since theres a lot of friction up top from our gym anchors.

We are trying to work wall specific muscles. Its a nice little circuit.

Somehow, I have had only one soggy run in the last two weeks, and I've been out every day. My feet are still mildly unhappy with the orthotics needing to seat in my new gortex running shoes. It generally takes a couple of weeks for them to stop complaining.

Team rejected for Hood to Coast next year:( So we can't "Run Like the Wind" two years in a row. Guess the Volcanic 50 will remain my inspiration and motivation for next year.

Whoa, sonic!

TFPU!

I used to race motocross along side a one armed guy (no prosthesis) in the Open/Expert class. As we speak, the guy gives me chills!

Such motivation!

Again. . . TFPU!

7.2 mile hike through Devils Garden, Arches National Park. Not a grueling hike, but pretty with some minimal rock scrambling.

Winds were HIGH, as a weather front starts....man why didn't I bring my skis?


Thanks Sonic for the video! The full body armour makes my elbow pads and knee pads look so prissy...but then I don't mtn. bike trails like they do! That trail is very similar to what one finds in the Soquel Demonstration Forest in Santa Cruz.

Jay, sorry we missed you the other day, come on over Friday night, if you want. We are going to be BBQing, and creating a smorgosboard. Taking off Saturday morn, so we are cleaning out refrig and cupboards...booty!

Michelle, way to go!!! I'm in your 'hood, so if you ever want to walk the Dish, I'm up for it.

Seamstress, Hood to Coast rejecting your team sounds really unfair. Are you in a tough age category or is the race more popular than ever? It's on my bucket list for sure.

The very best part of this elliptical thing is. . . it's giving me the chance to purge my old CD collection.

I go out to the shop/gym, flip through the books and go. . .

NO. . .

NEVER. . .

WhatAreYaKiddinMe. . .

and finally decide that maybe there's enough ooooomph in a certain disc to make it work. . . well. . . I've passed this one by for. . . like a month, now. . . but today, I decided it was a go.

GOOD GOD!

It's a good CD. . . I either double timed it at low resistance or cranked the LifeFitness WAY up there and pushed along with Mike. . . all I can say, is, it's a good thing I don't have neighbors. . . cause I sang along, too. . . completely out of breath. . . at the top of my lungs!

It's been a month on this puppy. . . and I'm please to report that I've shaved over half the "sit-on-my-dead-ass" pounds I gained this summer. . . and for that I am really happy.

This joy, alone, has more than paid for the machine!

YeahBaby!

Trying to keep up my post desert-trip-kick-in-the-pants workout regime.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Gym for 90 minutes of mainly upper body to rebuild shoulder strength from surgery last year.
Tues, Wed. 90 minute run, jog ( focus on keeping heart rate below 140)....hard to do, damn aging
Thurs. 14 mile MTB on an easy single track along the cliffs north of Santa Cruz.
Thurs night relegated to watching Sullly and Ferretlegger at climbing gym because my stitches and head started to ache and sting. Boo hoo, poor me.
Trying to keep it up with out an injury....trying...really hard.
