Thursday's workout: Finally made it to the gym with my buddy! I ran a couple miles on their far superior treadmills. Isn't it amazing how much faster treadmill time goes when you have 4 huge tvs to watch, a mill that doesn't feel like it's going to roll over, natural light and a friend beside you?
You would think with all of the above I could take a decipherable picture. Just be happy I didn't include the ones where we were actually running :)
We also ventured down to the weight machines but had to make a quick exit when ONE of us went crashing all the way to the ground on the assisted pull-up machine. :) Definitely the people that everyone hates at the gym yesterday, but I am hoping to get a text asking to go again today.
I picked up a schedule of the spring group fitness classes, yay!
Killer Core! Spine & Core! Yes and yes. And the first week of classes is free. Do you think my professors will understand if I skip all my academic classes for fitness classes that week?
Since dealing with SI Joint un-health is getting kind of old, I decided to do a little research on foods that foster healthy joints (only 3 months late on that one). By research, I mean google and click on the first link of course. Out of the list of 8 food items that I found, here are the 6 that I am willing (very willing) to eat: almonds, apples, ginger, black beans, kale, and broccoli. All semi-regulars in my kitchen already, but could definitely be eaten with more consistency (and in place of...some other things). The foods that I probably won't be eating despite their wonderful benefits: wild salmon (just don't like fish) and papaya (not in stores here). I read a little about fish oil supplements, but I am not a huge supplements person.
Anyone have experience with supplements for joint health? Have you noticed a difference?
Other foods to add to the list?
If you could try any fitness class for FREE, what would it be?
