Procrastination and over-exercising

Thursday Workout: BodyPump class (1 hour) and 2 mile walk/run on treadmill

So I did my 30 minute ab class and 1 hour spin class Wednesday night.  It definitely helped posting that I was going that morning because I didn’t want to back out and then have to take it off my exercise log!!So, I must confess that I do not love spinning. I know it is good for me because it uses different muscles and can make me a better runner, but I look at the clock every 10 minutes when I am there.  I just think about how I would rather be running during that hour and that running would probably burn more calories.

I did rock these babies to spin class yesterday…

My new Anonya capris!! Look at that fake pose!

Remember when I won these…

I was VERY LUCKY to win Janae’s Hungry Runner Girl Giveaway!

I loved the capris for spin class and thought they were very comfortable.  I can’t wait to try them out in the Fall when I run in the cooler weather!

Sugar-Detox:

Since I went on a sugar high during the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to go without sweets for the past few days. Today I caved and ate a pack of peanut butter Tastykakes… I couldn’t help it!!!! One pack had 2 cakes for 180 calories and 12 grams of sugar. Not the worst, but the box is empty now so I can’t go to them tomorrow! Haha! Take that box of sugary-goodness!

Over-Exercising…

So, I DEFINITELY need to cool it with the two workouts in one day and take tomorrow completely off.  I should have probably skipped BodyPump tonight, but I just love it too much!  My body feels a little beaten up after running 5 miles/BodyPump on Tuesday, ab class/spinning yesterday and BodyPump/2 mile run/walk tonight. I tried to run tonight after class and my legs felt so heavy.  A rest day is definitely in the works for tomorrow and will only include foam rolling and stretching!

I have been looking at different 1/2 marathon plans for the race I signed up for in October.  I would like to do a 12 week training plan, so I would need to start training the week of July 25th.  I think I will end up blending a few different plans together to create something I’m happy with for this race.  I’m planning on figuring this out within the next few days and I will make sure to post what I decide to use! I would still love to do BodyPump 1-2 times a week while I train for this race.

I did buy more Recoverite today so I can keep taking a scoop of this and a 1/2 or full scoop of protein after my classes. It has definitely helped my muscles recover faster!

Procrastination…

I started my next online grad class this past Monday (Music Theory through Boston University).  I had big plans to get some work done yesterday and today and it’s funny how nothing got done… I think this class has me a bit overwhelmed and I am avoiding it! I need to get my act together! I’m such a hypocrite though because I am typing this as I am supposed to be listening to my professor in Boston giving a “live lecture” on things I don’t understand… Good thing it is recorded and I can go back and listen to it again tomorrow if I need it. I’m all sweaty and haven’t showered yet and I’m just sitting here in my smelly clothes. Gross right? Sometimes I don’t shower right after class. I feel like I need to make sure I stop sweating before I shower!

Oh yeah…Big Brother 13 starts at 9:00 tonight so I will put off my work even more…  :)

  1. Tastykakes!!!!! YUM :) I was practically raised on them!

    Rest days are crucial…your body actually gets stronger during a rest day as opposed to a hard workout. Enjoy it!

  2. Ugh I’m in grad classes too and need to control my procrastinating!!! I’m doing work though…right now (after I’m done commenting on your post, of course). :)

  3. Very cute pants! Love ‘em! Haha, good thing you mentioned the over-exercising! I was about to feel lazy. I’m like, good grief she exercises a lot–am I not doing enough?!! Yes, REST! And how about I’m totally procrastinating right now instead of reading my CPT book. But that ends now! Off I go in 3…2…1… :-)

  4. Oh Tastykakes, they are so so good! I sometimes forget to rest enough when I get into a workout flow, and then other times I forget to stop resting (haaa). Your capris are super cute, but I don’t think I’ve seen a not-cute pic of you going to the gym. :)
