Tuesday morning I got up early and ran 8.5 miles (some outside ((until I felt like I am going to die from the heat)) and some on the treadmill. Mainly easy miles and one sub 7 minute mile on the treadmill) and at one point on the run my garmin started going crazy and making all sorts of noises and switching screens because I got too much sweat on it. Moral of the story—> don’t pour a gallon of water (or sweat) on your garmin.
When I got back from my run Sarah told me we were off to go take a boxing class.
I learned yesterday that I have even less coordination that I thought I did.
It was a blast and an experience that I don’t think I will ever get again. I wonder if I can convince my mom to just fly Brooke on over to Thailand so we can stay for a while.. I’ll email her about it.
We each had our own private instructor ($3 for an hour class?!?!) and they were actually pretty strict. We started off with jumping rope for 7 minutes (holy cow, that is hard) and then got to work. My heart rate skyrocketed when we were using the punching bags.
We didn’t actually fight each other but that would have been fun.
My arms, hands and legs (from all of the kicking) will be sore until May. This workout was no joke.
Done and ready to lie down.
Breakfast #1 (right after I got home from my run)—> chocolate chip pumpkin bread, german pancakes and fresh fruit.
Breakfast #2——> ridiculous amounts of fresh fruit from the side of the road.
(Sarah’s oldest daughter came and had a lesson too… She rocked it).
Baby pineapples, I don’t know if it will be physically possible for me to live without you again.
Last ‘new to you’ workout that you tried? Ever tried kick-boxing (or Muay Thai)?
Are you sore right now from a workout? Where?
A food that you don’t think you could live without?
