So today was cardio day at barre 3 and since I don't like their cardio I tried to do the knee friendly HR Cheryl did recently, but I think I did the wrong one. I did this one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGltyb3Ga8Q -- the 36 minute Knee Friendly HIIT from Sept. 12, 36 minutes. I liked it, even though bear kicks are my nemesis I made it through them. The crab dance actually made me the most out of breath, which was weird. But Cheryl, you did the more recent one, correct? Anyway it was a nice change of pace and nice music. Continuing my office packing, which continues to be demoralizing. So much accumulated stuff that I never actually used. Last night added on a yoga class tape since my teacher is away on vacation.

Lynn, office packing? If you posted about this before, I missed it. What's going on?

no panic -- our building is being renovated so we have to move. Not retiring.

Lynn, that's a nuisance but not as bad as being fired & evicted!

Check-in: Gaiam abs ball with that unknown athlete, Jonathan Roche. He doesn't wear a shirt.

I have a hike planned for Thursday. I hope it goes well. My best friend from singing (San Jose choir) & I have hiked together a few times, & I have found that quite enjoyable. She plays tennis competitively & does other athletic things so I know she is moving slowly with me, but she says she doesn't mind. But aside from the tennis and doing things with her husband, she's also in another singing group & has lots of rehearsals, so we don't go frequently. One of my church choir friends was talking about her recent hikes, so I offered to hike with her if she wanted company; she's the one I'm going with on Thursday. I hope she doesn't need speed. I used to hike alone all the time, but now I'm more cautious. And with my knee arthritis, I don't move as briskly as I used to. But I am grateful that I'm still ambulatory!

Checking in with Heather Robertson's Fusion Flow Legs and Glutes from the new series, and a lot of walking.

Lynn, no, that's not the knee-friendly workout I did! I stayed away from that one because I saw bear crawls in the description, lol. This is the one with really no dread. There is only one move that goes to the floor, and that is an inchworm possibly to pushup. Everything else is standing.

Diana, sounds like you had a wonderful day!

Cynthia, are you doing any research about the Azores yet, or are you waiting until it gets closer?

Cheryl, I think my research was limited to the name of the pastry. I've been on many group trips and I discovered early on that they are usually jam-packed with side trips and activities. So if I've read about the place, odds are I will be disappointed that I don't get to see what I've read about. That happened on my first trip. After that, I've just enjoyed what is planned. When the trip does have free time, I go for it -- on my last (I hope not the very last) singing trip to NYC, I had tea with Lynn, saw the Woman in Gold painting at Neue Galerie and the companion portrait at MOMA, enjoyed several restaurants, a Broadway show, and went to Lion Brand yarn headquarters and to a contradance!

Hi Everyone!

I think this is just going to be one of those weeks, not enough time to get things done.

No workout to report.

Cynthia Enjoy the hike.

Have a Blessed evening!
