Another week down, another heatwave in Philly! Glad all my sports are indoors. High of 94 with 90+% humidity today. Hope the weather is better other places.

In other news, USAFencing posted points for Summer Nationals and I have a new ranking, that quite frankly, has shocked me. I moved from 44th in my age group to 27th. I'm stunned, to be honest, and now have to be really vigilant as I will be seeded differently in tournaments. We will find out how that plays out at the end of this month at the Keystone State Games.

Sunday - quasi rest day. Did core work, stretching and some upper body/arms work at the gym

Monday - fence 3 hours

Tuesday - crossfit type class with lifting and metabolic conditioning 1 hour

Wednesday - fencing 3 hours

Thursday - Pilates 1 hour and crossfit type class with lifting and metabolic conditioning 1 hour

Friday - Pilates 1 hour - maybe some agility work if I have time.

Saturday - crossfit type class with lifting and metabolic conditioning 1 hour

Stay cool wherever you are.

Keep on losing!

way to go with your fencing. You could never suck at it. You are out there doing it. No matter where you place even last you should better proud of yourself. You are doing it.

Sorry for the late response - I'm in recovery mode - a little. Fenced at Summer Nationals in St. Louis last week - three days of fencing (burned about 3K calories per fencing day so pretty much ate whatever I felt like), drove out and back and did the tourist thing too in the 100 degree heat there. Didn't set the world on fire, didn't suck. Didn't finish any event dead f-ing last. All of which are more than I hoped for.

Sunday - deadlifting and yoga with recovery time

Monday - lesson and fencing (3 hours)

Tuesday - personal training 1 hour and cross fit type class

Wednesday - fencing 2.5 hours

Thursday - crossfit class

Friday - Pilates

Saturday - lifting and agility - shoulder mobility as well

Sunday -probably rest maybe a recreational bike ride if the weather is nice.

Considering a competition at the end of this month, but want to talk to my coach first - don't know if it would be worth a 2 hour drive each way.

Hope everyone has a great week.

Keep on losing!

I broke down and joined the gym so I could run inside. I ran outside on Tuesday and it sucked. So I ran on the treadmill on Thursday and that was awesome. Then we had a super awesome gorgeous weekend, and I was too sick to enjoy any of it. RAGE!!

Monday swim

Tuesday strength training

Wed 45 minute run master swim and I hoping to make it to dance class

Thursday run

Friday 50 minute bike ride drill work

Saturday swim out of the water onto the bike and not sure if there is a run

That's great!! lol

I live in a big city and it is tough to find a good coach here, too, which is why I haven't done it yet. I wish I could run, but my knees are shot. I am trying to baby them as long as I can before I need to do something about them.

When I first lost weight I walked a lot in front of mirrors to work on my gait. My center of gravity was so different. It threw me off for a long time!!
