If you have a suspension trainer and are on Facebook, be sure to "Like" TRX Suspension Training. For the next two weeks, they are offering a free workout on the Fans Only tab. It's about 15 minutes long, and has 3 segments of suspension training and intervals. So be sure to check them out. I might try the workout Friday and again on Monday.

I went to give blood today and my iron was too low. Not by much, but it didn't come up enough after the second stick to donate. I will have to try again on Friday. It's so hard to find a place to give blood around here because, as far as I know, it's jut the blood mobile and I've never seen a schedule. I will have to ask when I go on Friday. I really want to start doing it again. And of course, I'm still holding onto hope that I can be a blood marrow donor. I was a fantastic match for someone last year, but they passed away before we could do anything other than 3 rounds of testing. It was looking so good, too. I was really upset about that.

chocolate milk [1 pt]
eggs & light English muffin w/ cream cheese & jelly [3 pts]
chicken salad w/ avocado, salsa & light sour cream [1 pt]
McDonald's ice cream cone [3 pts]
shredded barbecue beef on Flat Out bread [2 pts] & curried beans
yogurt & pudding mix

80 ounces of water and 1 coffee. 18 weekly and 5 activity points remaining.

Tomorrow's workout - Turbo, baby!!!

I can't believe you can do Cuban snatches at 15lbs. I do them at 5. I would bump it to 8 next time though. I can do the lift but rotating up is HARD.

Yes, the rotating is very hard. I can barely hang on when I'm into position. I probably should have done 12.5 pounds but I hate uneven dumbbells.
