Saturday Workout: 3 miles on treadmill (29:05) and BodyPump!!
I got to the gym around 745 and got on the treadmill for an easy run. This was my third run of the week with a long run (7 miles) tomorrow so that means I got all my runs in this week! I did lower the amounts from my original training plan, but that is okay. I rushed over to the BodyPump room when I was finished on the treadmill and it was SO CROWDED! I barely found space to ‘pump and there were hardly any weights left! If you’ve been to BodyPump you know that there are usually 3 different size weights for the bar: 1 kg, 2.5 kg and 5 kg. There were no medium 2.5 kg weights left!! What was I going to do?? So I bumped up almost all my weights this morning and stood next to a lady that had extra medium weights that I borrowed for a few tracks!
The current BodyPump release I have been doing at the gym.
Today I did these weights for each track:
(S=small 1 kg, M=medium 2.5 kg and L=large 5 kg)
(1 kg = 2.2 lbs, 2.5 kg = 5.5 lbs, 5 kg = 11 lbs)
1. Warm up: M and S
2. Squat: L and S
3. Chest: M and S
4. Back: L
5. Triceps: M and S + 4lb hand weight for part of the track
6. Biceps: M and S
7. Lunges: L
8. Shoulders: M + 4 lb hand weight for part of the track
10. Cool Down
So if you are a BodyPump-er, let me know what you think of my weights. I am VERY proud of what weights I was able to use this morning because I have definitely worked my way up to this. Some tracks are still really difficult for me to up my weight on (chest and triceps).
So after my workout, I rushed home to shower and go see a possible wedding venue with Colby and my mom!!
I loved this place!!!!!

Leading down to the ceremony area.
Ceremony area… love that flowers are everywhere. It really reminded me of a beautiful garden and I just loved it. The only thing that would upset me is if it rains next October and I couldn’t have it outside! The inside of the mansion was really what I am looking for and so different from the typical reception hall. We are going to think it all over for a little bit!
After looking at the venue, we went to the Jeweler to get my ring sized down. I was getting a little nervous about how big it was when I was at school this week and it is nice and snug now! I even got to look at wedding bands! I think I’m really starting to like this wedding thing… :)
Later, Mom treated us to some goodies from the cake shop we will be using. I LOVE the dark chocolate ones and peanut butter! So good! Now I get to work on my grad work this afternoon and have some night plans with the family. Hope you are having a great Saturday!!
