Workout time! I've gotten into decent shape over the last two years, building a lot of strength, but need to lose about 10lbs to feel good about entering racquetball tournaments in the fall. I've been afraid of exercising too much with all of the chronic cardio talk around here, but fuck it. I'm not on a treadmill.
Got home Tuesday night and went straight from the airport to the gym and played an hour of racquetball. After a week of gentle swimming and walking, it felt great to actually be moving. Maybe that's why I love it so much - I basically just throw my body around the court with abandon. There's something about chasing that little blue ball that makes me push harder than I do otherwise. And, I won! that's even better. He was getting pissed at himself but I was just crushing it AND playing smart - the two don't often meet lol.
Did my weight lifting class on Wednesday. My entire body was sore from racquetball - seriously, it hits muscles you didn't even know you had - but I don't care. Did weight lifting anyway. Then my sister texted me about a walk, so I did an hour of hill walking. Last night, I did a 75 minute yoga class, which was so nice. I haven't been able to do much yoga for a couple months now. Tonight, I'm playing more racquetball - I'm hoping I can get an hour and a half out of my partner this time. Hot guy that I played with before my FL vaca played for 3 hours and it was awesome.
I have another weight class tomorrow and more walking. Sunday is totally free, so maybe I'll do some racquetball drills by myself. I have a shitload of work to do on perfecting my serves, so that would be good. Kids are gone with their dad next week so I can selfishly work out every night without worrying about getting dinner on the table. I'm curious to see if overloading on exercise has any negative effects. I just get happier and happier the more I move, maybe it's because I still have that 10 lbs to lose?
