Thursday– 1 hour spin. 5k on the treadmill. Class was fun. I might try to make it a habit to make this 1 hour spin class. I forget how different it is to be a participant. I like it! Class was a tough one. I like that! 🙂 After class I jumped on the treadmill for a quick run. I had a lot of energy for such an early start.
Friday– Total Body Sculpt instruction at 5:45 am. This class is a full body weights class that is scheduled for 60 minutes. It’s been a while since I taught it, and I planned a 45 minute class. I planned the timing perfectly- for a 45 minute class. Ooops! I don’t think anybody noticed my mistake. I usually tell on myself, but not today. I had the class go through the ab portion again and I added on some extra shoulder work, planks and hip/core exercises Whew. It all worked out well. I taught Spin instruction at 12 noon. I did an interval class for this rowdy bunch. 🙂
Saturday– I wanted to run, but
could did not do it on the treadmill. I did intervals on the elliptical for 25 minutes. 5 minute warm up with 11 intervals of 60 seconds on and 60 seconds off. I thought about running a few miles after that, but then went to the Human Performance Lab for a quick circuit.
It took me about 12 minutes or so to complete the quick circuit. Short, sweet and effective. I was pumped because I was able to do 4 pull ups per set.
Irish Jig 5k at 9:35 am Pretty consistent Miles for Amara. I let her pace us. She was only 1 minute off of her PR!! Sometimes I wonder if I should push her a bit more, but I want her to continue to like running….so I back off and only speak when I feel it necessary. There were a few inclines on the course and Amara attacked each and one of them with such force! She not complain a lot either. I mean, she’s only 8, so I was expecting to hear more complaints. It was a cold day (especially compared to last years race- it was 78* when the race started.) Amara got a cramp and her hands were cold ( hope she’s not taking after me). Her next race is scheduled to be the Gazelle Girl 5k on April 13th. There is still room – sign up! She says she is wanting to PR at the 5/3 Riverbank 5k this year. 🙂 So very proud of her. She is one of those sneaky competitive people. I’ll take it, and I think I will keep her. 😉
If you noticed, I did not post up my bed times for the last 4 days. I forgot what time I finally made it to bed, but I think I only made my goal one time in 4 days. Fail. I did foam roll twice though. Yoga was a big fat 0. Awesome. Not so much. I still have time for 3 yoga sessions to do before month’s end. I wonder if I will do it……..stay tuned. 😉
