Fun Times at the Gym And Today's Workout

Today was "pull" day which is my longest workout day due to the amount of strength training exercises. While "push" day has five exercises and "leg" day has four, "pull" day has eleven (or more depending on how I break down the bosu ball workout - in the list below it's broken up into 3 separate ones but really it's more of a combo exercise).

It also didn't help the amount of time that I was there when the fire alarm went off and we had to evacuate the building. The worst part was that I was in the middle of donkey kicks one leg at a time and only one leg got done before we had to leave. I have OCD tendencies and that really, really, really bothered me. Luckily there was no fire so we were able to go back in but it cut into my workout time so I had to finish some of the abs and stretches at home.

Then, just my luck - TMI Warning...

...my workout bra decided to pop open in the middle of my abs workout (yes, I was wearing a shirt over it) and there wasn't anywhere I could fix it between the large mirrors and the guy that was right there so I just called it a day and finished up at home. I think I need a bigger bra :/

On the plus side I was able to go faster on the treadmill though, by a little but, which made me happy because, yay, progress!

Tomorrow is just a treadmill day and then Saturday is push day and then I get a break! Woohoo!
