Yesterday I was able to jump out of work a little early and head over to school to get in some cardio. I did 40 min on the elliptical and I noticed that my heart rate was elevated more so then normal. I did however reach a steady state about 4 minutes in and had no discomfort, always a good thing.
Class started around 6pm and it just moved at a snails pace. The topic was about the different energy systems and the role they play during exercise. I will spare you the details now however it is very cool stuff, it was just presented in a very dry boring manner and we discussed this in detail last semester so it was a lot of review. Good stuff to hear more then once but our instructor's presentation of it was painful. That was the first class that ends at 7:20 and then we get a 15 minute break before starting the second class. The second class is a short lecture and then we move over to the gym and workout. Again we hit the core with a variation of trunk flexion and extension movements. Some of my favorites were using the exercise balls, man; I thought I was working my core using the machine at the gym, not! I like the ball because it adds the instability factor, great workout. We broke up in teams and basically worked each other out. So, the night did get a little better and occasionally we would check out the lunar eclipse!
Class didn't end until about 9:45 and I got home a little after 10pm. I still had some things to do for work so I was up until about 1am. I'll only have one semester to go before completing the program, can't wait to finish. Yesterday was hard because I left before Gracie and Ashli were up and I didn't come home until 10pm, Gracie was already asleep. I didn't get a chance to have daddy time at all, that sucked. It really upsets me, but the weekend is coming only one more night. I will be glad when this semester is over and I get that little break through the summer, it will be nice. Gracie woke up just before I was leaving this morning and gave me a big hug, man I needed that.
Tonight is my nutrition class which usually only goes until about 8:45. The instructor is fantastic and makes the time just fly by. This weekend I do have a board meeting for the HOA on Saturday morning and then my time is for Gracie and Ashli, should be a good weekend.
Make it a great Thursday! - Jason
