Fitness Friday: Hard Workouts

Thursday Workout: 3.5 miles: 37 min 14 sec, BODYPUMP!!!!

Friday Workout: TBA!


I got to go to a BodyPump class last night!!!!! I couldn’t make any other classes this week and it had been over a week since my last class! I planned on running 3-4 right after school at a nearby park and I got 3.5 miles in before going straight to BodyPump!


Look at those 8’s! Well, 8:54 and 8:47 but still fast for me. I haven’t ran outside since Sunday and had a sudden burst of energy when I started my run. I decided to really push myself and run hard for the first 2 miles. After I finished 2 miles, I walked for .25 trying to catch my breath then ran comfortably for the rest of mile 3. Then I walked half a mile to finish up the run so I could let my legs relax before BodyPump!

BODYPUMP!!!!! It kicked my butt! I forgot how hard it is when you’ve taken time off! The squat and shoulder track killed me and I was sweating up a storm. As soon as my favorite instructor put the music on in the beginning of class I instantly got excited. I LOVE this class so much. Have I mentioned how much I love BodyPump? 🙂  I probably won’t love it so much Friday when I’m sore from running hard and going to class. ( I wrote this post last night!)

After class I was so tired and hungry and decided to stop at the grocery store across the street for a treat. I thought I deserved it!

My favorite two flavors of Kombucha!!!! I thought I deserved a treat so I picked up a few 🙂

I feel like I really pushed myself Thursday night by running hard and going to BodyPump after taking time off from it. I was really proud that I could do these two workouts after such a longgggg week at work! I’m ready for some sleep this weekend!!

What workouts push you the most?

  1. Tracy's Treats

    Hilly runs definitely push me to the limit…in a good way. I love how I feel afterwards, even if my legs are sore.

  2. i taught bodypump last night for the first time in a week and went super heavy on my weights. it felt amazing – i was super sweaty and shaking at the end of every track. bodypump makes strength training so much fun!

    i also ran before class! 🙂

  3. Awesome run!!! I wish my gym had Bodypump. The class sounds awesome.

  4. Yay, Body Pump! My arms actually felt the pain this time!

  5. Your posts about bodypump have me really curious. It sounds like a great workout.

  6. Haha, it sounds like you really like this BodyPump class… 😉 People talked about it a lot at my personal trainers workshop this weekend. I was like, “I know someone who likes it!” It’s still on my list! The workout that pushes me is the hot yoga for sure!
