I worked out for a full hour today.  Except for the days when I have my training session with Chelsea, this hasn’t happened much lately.

I set out to do 45 minutes on the E Spinner followed by 15 minutes of core/abs.

I ended up doing the 45 minutes on the E Spinner.  It was tough partly because I didn’t have on padded shorts and partly because I tried to stand up too much.  Tonight, my knee is pretty sore.  I probably wouldn’t have tried riding while standing as much if I had the correct shorts.  I learned my lesson.  I think I am just going to throw an extra pair of cycle shorts in my J bag.  I also wore my heart rate monitor for the first time in months.  I need to start working on my intensity now than my knee is getting better.  I full think today’s soreness will be temporary and not set me back.

After the 45 minute ride, instead of core/abs, I did 15 minutes on the elliptical while I chatted with a friend.

I’m taking tomorrow off, but will be running errands with the kids.  I’m planning on putting a battery in my pedometer and shooting for 8000 steps.  I have no idea how my step count has been lately, but I want to make sure I am staying active even if I don’t have a formal workout.
