Woo hoo!! Visit Kari’s blog and hopefully she will post about training for this race!!!  There is one in Philly in September, so you can sign up for that one Kari!!  Congrats!!

I’m guessing I didn’t have that many people enter to win this race entry because it is intimidating? Crawling through mud scares you I guess!  I was a little bummed that I didn’t have that many people enter, considering those race fees are pretty expensive (around $100).  That’s okay, I’ll have to have Kari write a guest post when she does the race!  If you’ve changed your mind and are interested in the Spartan Races, click here for a 15% discount when you sign up!

So for my other random topics in this post, let’s talk about my gym bag…

I saw this bag at Target on sale a few months ago and bought it for the gym.  At first, I didn’t like that there were no pockets but it has been really great.  I do take my own 5lb weights because they have the open sides that make it so much easier to hold when I teach triceps and shoulders.  Our gym has the older model plate with just the center hole, but they just got 10 new SMARTbars!!  If you are not a Les Mills person and have no idea what I’m talking about, you can look at their website here.  Basically, it is their new bar with awesome weights that slide on and off and have better hand placement for holding the plates.  Our gym is going to start teaching Les Mills’ new GRIT class, so they will be using these bars.

My workouts have been very great this week, there just hasn’t been a lot of running.  It was really nice out yesterday (under 80 in the morning!) so I ran 4 miles with Colby.  I have been to the gym a lot this week teaching pump and taking spin class.  I love spin class now!! RPM is a Les Mills class and it is so much fun!  I also swam laps at the pool this week too!  Here is my workout log.

Our gym had to wait to launch the new Les Mills releases because of GRIT training, so our launch party is tomorrow morning!  I am so excited to teach tracks 1-3 for BODYPUMP and take the new CXWORX and COMBAT classes!

We will be launching BODYPUMP 86 and here is a video that shows a sneak peak of each track.

Has anyone used Strava yet?  Colby told me about it the other day and I signed up.  I haven’t really used it yet, but I was wondering if a lot of people use it?  Here is the website for more information.

Last weekend, we went to Ocean City, MD for a quick trip to the beach.  It was a little windy at the beach, so after a few hours we decided to lay out at the hotel pool.

  1. LOL! I WAS intimidated by the race! It looks scary! But I am super excited for Kari though! Although I was not going to enter the giveaway (which was awesome btw), you are still motivating me to workout! I finally got back to the gym and went 6 out of the last 7 days and I even tried yoga (I went to the gym twice that day). :)
