This picture was on the front page of the Chicago Tribune this morning. These are two of the Bears at Brookfield Zoo....eating a Colt helmet pinata! How do you not love it!
Yesterday we had volleyball in the evening and so there was no running. I did however warm up before the match with 15 minutes on a Precore machine. I think I could probably make it 30 mintues before I want to kill myself out of bordom but as far as indoor machines go they are probably my favorite. We played three great games of volleyball and even though we didn't win any games all the games were within a couple points of each other so at least we didn't get blown out.
After the game we did some weights which for me consisted of bicep curls, tricep work, shoulder work, bench press (but not the real one cause it was being used and so I used the machine flavor one) and then lower back. I don't really know what I am doing, but my arms hurt today so I guess that's good. I really should buy a book and get some kind of routine going. We worked out at the gym that is at Fermilab which we are members of. It kinda sucks as a gym, but it's super cheap and we have already paid for a year so we are going to try and go 2-3 times a week. We'll for sure work out on Monday's after volleyball and then try and get in there some other day of the week. After the weights I did the ab workout that I have been doing for the past week. I am starting to be able to add to the number I do of each kind so I guess that is progess right?
And last but not least......a photo of our current evening skyline. Go Bears!
