Class at the Y. Time shorter than normal because I arrived late due to watching the WOC women's sprint until the end. :-) What fun!

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Despite it being a cooler day, it was still rather humid in the studio. Good workout and stretching.

Lazy day today. I took a bus trip with other quilters to the Lowell Quilt Festival in Massachusetts. Tons of lovely traditional and contemporary quilts, some hand quilted but many machine quilted. The Best of Show was a stunning hand appliqued, pieced, and quilted masterpiece by Linda Roy. (Vintage Button Bouquet... More about the quilt, if you're really interested...)

Another quilt that caught my attention showed a familiar name... no, not as the quilter:

From 2011-LowellQuiltFestival

(More photos of that quilt are located on my Picasa picture site.)

Walked a little bit around the town, from the Visitors Center to the Auditorium, but don't really count that as exercise because we stopped for ice cream on the way. :-)

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Used exercise balls today. I love roll-ups using the ball. Bridges on the ball, on the other hand, are torture (we did them first).
11 AM

Fitness equipment (elliptical) 30:00 [2]
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #4-Y

Elliptical, program 3 level 2. "distance"=1.46mi
Legs got tired; I had planned to do more.

Walking (indoor track) 15:30 [3] 1.0 mi (15:30 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #4-Y

So I walked a mile to not let myself off the hook.

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

In Chatham. Not as humid as on Monday but still worked up a sweat.

Also, toted away all the creeper vines I pulled up yesterday, and put them on the brush pile. Hope they don't take root there. They were starting to encroach on the largest hickory tree in our property.

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Class at the Y -- no tools today, and a small class so not crowded.
11 AM

Fitness equipment (elliptical) 4:40 [2]
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #4-Y

The two elliptical machines (of about a dozen and a half) that have the tighter spacing between footpads were both occupied. The other machines' footpads are too far apart for my body mechanics and are uncomfortable to use, though I gave one a try until my right hip started to hurt. Then switched to the treadmill.

Walking (treadmill) 40:00 intensity: (5:00 @1) + (35:00 @3) 2.63 mi (15:12 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #4-Y

Started with incline at 1% and upped it to 2.5 for most of this, then back down for the 5-minute cool-down

Re: Sunday's Brown Long course -- After adding my GPS track to RouteGadget, I see that I didn't take the route/paths I thought I had to #6, which explains why things weren't looking quite right when I hit the stream. The intermittent/bike trail didn't turn to the NW partway down the hill, or I missed a turn and was returned to the big trail. If I'd just taken the main trail in the first place I'd have known where I was and would probably have been a bit faster.

At least I headed in the correct direction (towards the road, my ultimate mid-point goal). Took the side/clearing trail up because I could see the road and wanted to be sure of where I was hitting it.

Track doesn't quite line up correctly on some of the trails (1-2, 10-11).

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Surprised that my hip wasn't nearly as tight as last week. I *have* been focussing on stretching hip flexors this past week.
