It was definitely just the other folks in the room rather than the instructor, but she didn't really say anything in response to the comments. And now that you mention it, I wish that she had. I probably would have taken it more in stride. Oh well!
I do want to try out a longer stint some time, but it's just not this time.
Food and drink are great for rants. Also we should go hiking soon, but I'd be shocked if you have any free weekend days this summer.
Hahaha. Salad Club is not my creation but a collab of a few assassins including @RogueLibrarian, salad guardian and champion supreme. But you are always welcome to copy my salads.
My salads so far this week are not quite in the "mostly green" bucket, but still very delicious. I made a big, hearty grain salad with brown rice + quinoa, rainbow chard, roasted cauliflower, celery, shallots, poached chicken, lots chopped parsley, and a lemon vinaigrette. I've also got some diced sweet potato I'm going to throw in today and I think that will also be excellent.
I feel like the first comment or two was just jokes, but when it kept going, I was like "ooookay then."
It was very hot and humid in the Boston area yesterday and neither of my gyms have air conditioning. I was on the fence between going to gymnastics practice because I can't go on Thursday (work meetings) and going to the regular gym, but honestly, the heat tipped it in favor of lifting. That gym stays a bit cooler and there is a lot less running around with lifting...... though, it was also day 1 of my 10s cycle, so not that much less heart rate work.
I probably should have started a little bit heavier because 195# was a lot easier than I expected it to be, but I can just go up 10# next week instead of 5#. I also had forgotten what quad pump feels like, wheeew. It still got very sweaty in there because it was 83 inside the gym, but I could stand in front of the fans between sets, which I took great advantage of.
"Glute lean pistols" are what I call it when I hold onto a support and lean back rather than the usual knees-forward unassisted pistol. It makes it more like a lunge than a pistol.

Lifting again today. Running or something on Wednesday. Thursday rest + work travel day. Friday, I'll maybe find a way to lift in the morning and then leave work early for a beach afternoon with my faux comp time from the Thursday meetings.
