I forgot to post yesterday's workout, so today's entry is a 2-for-the-price-of-1 deal. Yay.

Most of the mass influx of students has occurred. Overall, I like it when everybody comes back because it makes town seem more lively and interesting, but, of course, it also drastically increases the quantity of dimbulbs who observe that their light has just turned red and think that means it's time to saunter across the street in front of cars who are waiting impatiently because said light is very short. I thought this was a highly competitive school, for cripes' sake - is it too much to ask that they accept people who can tell their damn colors apart?

Cardio - I decided to try some new machines, and this is how it went.
Rowing machine - I jumped on here for about 11 minutes. It was fun and no-impact and deceptively difficult, but I got a blister on my ass because I happened to be sitting right on my undies. Owwwwww. I'm never wearing low-rider thongs on cardio day. Ever. Again.
VersaClimber - I dealt with this for about 4 minutes. It's tough, which is good, but it bores me to tears. Maybe if I brought some music with me, I could actually finish a workout on this thing.
Elliptical trainer - Well, this isn't a new machine, but it was an experiment because I'm usually afraid to do heavy leg cardio right after squat day. I didn't think a mile would be too bad, so I did one in just over 9 minutes (and higher-than-normal resistance, too!) My legs are fine today, so it looks like that experiment was a success. ^_^


Bench press - 5,5,5,4,4 @ 85 pounds (almost...)
Incline dumbbell press - 6,4 @ 30 (#6 was a real struggle, but I did it weeee)
Military press - 9,7,7 @ 45 (whoopee)
Swiss ball crunch - 13,10 @ 5 (gah, how I hate the lactic acid burn I get when my abs are almost done with a set)
Current Mood: awakeawake
Current Music: Duran Duran - Ordinary World

Pitt students do it do. Hell, about every school I know has students who can't tell that red means stop, yellow means, slow down, green means go, or they even have the hand signals. People are dumb, period. Oh and I am gonna try and e-mail susan to tell her of your wedding.

I emailed Susan and got her addy, so she's on the invitation list. ^_^

We have the little button push thing in Montreal - you know, push the button and wait for the Walk sign and a little timer that shows how long you have until the light turns yellow then red.

Nobody said that everyone's going to college to get an education. ;)

There are some intersections around town with buttons, but the only timers I've seen were in Alexandria, Virginia. Those are so useful, I wish they had them everywhere. It's annoying when you walk up to a green light and don't know how long it's been on, so you can't decide whether to go for it or not.

Well, people come to PSU to get an education in keg stands. There's a reason this place is known as a drinking town with a football problem. I guess if you're trying to remember when the next frat party is, your mind is too occupied to deal with something as trivial as traffic signals. =P

I believe since the Blind Peoples Association was here last month, all around Downtown Pikksburgh there are talking crosswalks. When you visit, Maddame, I'll show you. Hehehe, "a drinking town with a football problem." That upsets me, already college is expensive enough and add to it, people just wanna go to college to get their drink on! Fucking Baffoons.
