Last night at the gym I started my workout with the Return to Running Plan so I could try to participate in the Twitter #fitblog chat. It’d been a few weeks since I was able to participate and I missed chatting with everyone! There were a lot of good questions in last night’s chat. Here’s one:
QUESTION: What is happiness to you?
It proved to be more difficult than I thought to participate while on a treadmill but I did my best. During the “walk” portion I would type or catch up on tweets, then I’d jog. Needless to say, it took me longer to complete the 1.5 miles. 😉
I was pretty excited. I increased the weight on almost every machine I use and had a fantastic workout. There was one triceps machine that I did not increase the weight with. That’s definitely an area of my body I still struggle with.
After the weight lifting, I worked on my core and strengthened my hips:
I have three hip and IT Band strengthening exercises I do. I see some progress since starting them three weeks ago. I don’t shake as much, but I’m not quite strong on my right side either. I hope that continues to improve.
I ran into an old coworker at the gym. She said she was taking the Turbo Kickboxing class and said I should join her. Since my workout was over I said maybe next week. Now that I’ll know someone in the class that might push me to do it!

I got home and immediately drank my Glutamine muscle recovery drink.
QUESTION: Do you have an iPad? Did you participate in the #fitblog chat?
