Soooooo....my exercise plans this week, thus far, haven't panned out as planned.

Yesterday I wanted to do a full weights workout at the gym. Unfortunately, the lights at the gym conspired against me. When I rolled up to the gym at 5 am it was totally dark. Normally, all of the lights are blaring. I saw a few guys milling around outside so I assumed the guy who normally opens wasn't there. What to do? What to do? After about 5 minutes, I saw them go in. Huh? It turns out he was there, but for some reason the lights wouldn't come on. He couldn't get into the main office where I don't know what could take place, but no lights until someone else showed up. The electricity in the building was working and lights were on in the locker room, but not the cardio room or weight room. Needless to say, I couldn't do weights in the dark. To dangerous. So I did cardio in the dark. I did 22 minutes on the elliptical with the lights coming on about the 15 minute mark.

I moved to the weight room then and did a lackluster leg workout as I was extremely tired from the cardio. Normally, I'm not that tired from that amount of cardio, but I was also a bit under the weather. I've been fighting a cold and I'm not winning. :(

Then I ended up spending much of yesterday evening in the emergency room with my Mom. All is okay now, but I didn't get to sleep until 1 am. Needless to say, no gym today. I attempted to go to work mid-day and had to leave due to a massive cough bout which ended with my vomiting (though I had very little on my stomach).

Not sure about tomorrow just yet. Perhaps I should rest one more day.
