    I did 2/3 of my goal time (half hour) today. Really not feeling so great right now...
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    I have a hard time for the first 30 mins. My goal is an hour at a time, so once I hit 30 I know I am halfway there and the second half doesn't seem so bad.

    3/3

    Another 45 minutes done. Was curious about another ECT, so did the warm up and watched part of it (sort of did the workout - still a good workout for me!) - then DH took over the TV for aero base.

    SEVEN HOURS?!

    Maybe it's my choice of material. I can't afford new stuff, but I have plenty on my laptop and my DVD collection. I'm mostly watching old TV shows, so half an hour seems like a natural stopping point. Maybe I'll try for two episodes as this muscle heals.

    Tri Girl, sorry about your stress fracture. At least you're not missing the good weather, right?

    I "cheated" today and did a 30 mile outdoor ride. But it's back to the trainer early next week.

    I am not sure how the spreadsheet works. Do I put in some kind of symbol before the new time I am keying in?

    Enter 1 hour as 01:00 or 40 minutes as 00:40 and you will be set...

    Good!

    I teach Spinning year round. There are some students that do not exercise outside at all. When the weather is half-way do-able outside it's hard for me to be inside! Though I'm grateful to get paid with having class attendance and to see my members I love.

    Glad you got to see your friends also.

    Today's video was Dropping the Hammer. Love it/hate it. It's a great workout, but it is hard.

    Thanks, I thought so. I didn't seem like they were adding up so I thought I was missing something. The percentage line is messed up. I will PM Veronica since I have no idea how to do formulas in excel.
