cycling/rowing combo

I didn't have a chance to go to spin class today, but I was able to spin on my own bike and the cycleOps today. Went hard for 25"48', and ended up quite sweaty. After that, a simple and easy 1k on the rowing machine rounded out my workout. I focused, like my wife suggested, on stretching way out. So far out, in fact, that I need to make a mental note to move the stuff behind the rowing machine next time before I use it.

Additionally, I did some ankle strengthening exercises on the BOSU ball. I think that really shows how bad my balance is and how bad weak my ankles are. My goal was 1 minute standing on a single foot while still. I was nowhere near still, and only sometimes single footed. And while I only touched my other foot to the ground, it's not something I should have to do. It's definitely something to keep working on.

Another exercise I did on the Tour de BOSU was a sit/stand type of exercise I saw on youtube that looked interesting. In practice, it was not what I envisioned. It didn't work my abs as much as I thought it would. I would doubt that I will try it again.
