This morning I woke up at 5:55 am. I quickly changed, shoveled in a sandwich thin with homemade jam and walnuts (against what my stomach wanted) and ran out the door by 6:15. I arrived at my new kettlebell small group training class by 6:30.
Oh. My. God.
Circuits of: high kick running and jumps down a horizontal ladder, run over grab a kettle bell, 1 minute of hard-core kettlebell action, run over and do 20 spider man push-ups, then lunges down the room. Repeat. For ONE HOUR.
The trainer changed up how we’d run down the ladder, the different kettlebell movements, and the push-up types to keep it interesting and painful.
By the time I was out of the shower I was STARVING. I made a quick egg and cheese on an english muffin and ran back out the door to catch the bus to work.
I feel like I’ve already had a full day!
My new class meets every Tuesday morning for the next 8 weeks with four other women. As painful as it is to get up that early it feels amazing after! Now Tuesday really is my day because after work I can do whatever I want. I can lounge on my couch and catch-up on my dvr, I can run errands, cook dinner, and just relax. It’s my night and now I already got my workout in!
This new class made me realize that March might just be my month of fitness. Minus the first few sick days, I’ve realized that since March 4th I’ve been pretty active in a new way.
Friday, March 4th – I tried a fusion yoga class. An hour and a half of vinyasa meets other forms of yoga? It was tough and I still don’t think yoga is for me but hey, it was probably great for my body and mind. I have a month pass to that yoga place so I may try to get myself to go a few more times.
Saturday, March 5th – Boxing for 40min with my trainer.
Sunday, March 6th – Spin for hope. Eeek 3 hours of spinning, my lady parts hurt just remembering it.
Monday, March 7th – Boxing for 30min with my trainer and a 1 mile run in 9:10min.
Tuesday, March 8th – 1 hour kettlebell
torture fun class
Even though the month is a 1/3 way through, I still want to come up with some goals…
