Running More Often
After my hamstring drama, I was ready to kick it in with my running. I ran 5 awesome miles last weekend and I think it was because of the perfect running weather!
I had gotten a little off-track from my mini training plan to prepare for next Saturday’s 5 miler. This past week was tough. I had so much to do at work and would get home late and exhausted. I ended up taking Monday/Weds/Thurs off. I was feeling really horrible about it, but I just needed it. I decided to make up for it on Friday and Saturday.
Friday I ran 2 miles on the treadmill before teaching BODYPUMP. I hadn’t been to the gym in awhile because of my hamstring injury, so I was dying to get back up on stage and teach! The girl I taught with Friday asked me to come to her GRIT class at noon on Saturday. I had no excuse not to go, so I decided to run before the class on Saturday.
I didn’t have as much time as I wanted to run on Saturday before the class, so I fit in 2 miles at home. I was SO happy with these two miles because the second was 20 seconds faster! Woo hoo! Then I drove to the gym and got to GRIT…
Hardest. Class. Ever. GRIT Strength is intense. I can’t even imagine how tough the GRIT Cardio class must be, because I was out of breath the entire class and my heart rate was through the roof! Burpees, push ups, jumps, etc. will do that to you! It is only 30 minutes… because there is no way you could do that for an hour!!
Also, my friend Steph is getting certified to teach BODYATTACK this weekend and it is her Birthday today! So happy for her and I bet she is sore!
