I did it! I got out of my comfort zone of my usual no coordination needed routine of running and tried something that did in fact require a lot of coordination.
My verdict: I loved it. I think if you have read my blog for longer than 6 days than you no that I usually love most things but I REALLY loved this class. There was some intense cardio bursts, plyometrics, kick-boxing, dancing/hopping around and weights. My muscles were fatigued by the end and I want to keep going at least once a week…..this has GOT TO HELP with my running!
It really was a total body workout and the hour flew by, plus the teacher played the best music ever. I was super nervous at the beginning of the class because there were as many guys in there as girls….I have never been to a gym class (besides spinning) with those odds and I feared for my life that the class was going to be too hard.
When I got home I started to get ready but my stomach was yelling at me to eat and so I asked the Billster if we could just go as is. Bless this man for going out in public with me in matching slippers and pajamas (I still had my workout capris on) with my hair greased back from working out.
We got take-out from Cafe Rio and my sweet pork salad was better than ever. Why you ask? Because Billy knows me pretty well and as part of my bday present he went to Costco and got ALL of my favorite things, including that delicious mango salsa that I put all over my salad. My kitchen is also now fully stocked with a few gallons of orange juice, cottage cheese, grapes, pears and delicious popsicles….more precious than diamonds to me.
I determined that this salad is pretty darn healthy….I get in the essential healthy fats: avocados in the guac, olive oil in the dressing and most importantly the lard in the tortillas and the fried tortilla chips.
We ate and watched the movie, “Warrior” (very romantic;) and it was incredible. It was one of those inspirational sports movies about a high school physics teacher and fighting in the UFC. Definitely a winner if you like these types of movies.
PS Billy really appreciated his oversized card that I made him complete with a mushy/gushy/cheesy novel written inside, boys love that kind of stuff:)
Be prepared for even more questions than usual:
What was the last thing that you did to get out of your comfort zone?!?!
What was the last workout that left you REALLY sore?
Besides actually RUNNING…what do you think is the number one thing to really help you be a better runner?
-I think strength training and nutrition…gotta work on both:)
What are some of your essential workout clothes for the winter?
Did you eat a delicious dinner last night?
