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!
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!
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!
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… 🙂
