12F - Icy; Coach Troy and I had a Meeting this Morning

I slept in until 6:30 (usually up at 5:30). Otherwise I would have gone to the rec center for an hour of swimming. My singing group practices at 8:30 here, so I just did not have enough time for the swim, etc.

The side streets are ice coated. Not for this almost 72 year-old body with one back fusion already. I've got to play it safe.

So, the trainer was all set up, the video was in the player, and I gave in to the siren call of Coach Troy.

I only had time for about 30 minutes, but I did OK.

Believe me, the Spinerval videos/DVDs make the time go much faster, you get a much greater variety of speeds, resistance, etc., than you would think of yourself, and I highly recommend them for anyone getting bored on the trainer. There are other DVDs - such as Carmichael.

Supposed to warm up tomorrow, and I will go for a swim later today.

Sigh, winter IS here.

That time of year again isn't it. Oh, the sound of Coach Troy's voice is that of pure evil and it is soon to be heard at my home once more.
