Yesterday I worked some overtime 11am to 5 pm to be exact. Wow. I discovered that certain day shift nurses really are as mean as was advertised, and lazy! Needless to say I was happy to see my relief arrive, even though it was not that busy and compared to the volume seen in that ER on nights it was like a walk in the park.
After that I headed over to the Physical Therapy gym for another attempt at the running thing. There were 2 other employees there who were doing some curious workout routienes. Hallelujah! Dwight Yoakumwas no where to be played!!! However, the guy had chosen a CD of Selena The queen of Tejano music. In this particular CD,it seemed to be the slower style, and sort of breezy, spanish singing. I couldn't figure out why he would have chosen that,as it was soooo slow. WHen he left he put on Van Morrison's The Philosopher's Stone again music with a fairly sedate pace. I noted though that both men spent a lot of time standing about, lifting some weights and then standing about again. None of them did a complete weight set….so maybe their attitude is different.
I on the other hand had a really good run on the Treadmill of DOOM. I ran 2 miles without feeling winded and with my heart rate staying 20 beats below my Max. I ran 2 more miles after which were not as easy butstill were notthat hard either. I was really pleased since I had had so much trouble at my last workout.
After that I did minimal weights and crunches, andthen I went home. Not a very exciting Friday, but pleasing.
I really want to find my CD of running music. It's full of Motown, Aqua, Brenda Fassie, Loketo,and otherpump you up rhythms….I wonder how people would react!!!
Anyway, I feel encouraged regarding everything. Now to just watch the diet a bit more….
