Sorry everyone, I sorta skipped doing my post last week. Never fear...you get my fitness babble this week.
As far as getting in workouts..that went well. I just didn't feel awesome with every workout.
Monday - I took my first yoga class in something like 7 or 8 years. It was ok. Felt like we spent too much time meditating in the beginning and not doing enough poses. But..first class so we'll see how it goes. I think I need to do yoga so I'll stick with it for awhile and if I need to find another place, I will.
Tuesday - Ran 4.23 miles in 36.3 minutes. I did a surge for the last .23 and was super tired but think it will help in the long run.
Wednesday - I did a strength training workout, P90X Shoulders and back
Thursday - I did the same loop as Tuesday and this time in 37 min. A tad longer but still good. I also did the surge at the end again and felt proud of myself for doing it.
Friday - spin class! That's the thing I missed telling you all about. The week before I started taking a spinning class. So far I'm loving it! It's tough and I can't do all the standing cycling but when I can't stand and cycle I increase my resistance and try to peddle faster. I definitely see myself continuing with the spinning class for a long time.
Saturday - threat of thunder storms on Sunday so instead of resting on Saturday I went for my long run. My planned 6 miles turned into 4. At first I was upset with this but my ankle and heel were hurting and I was tired. I felt it best to stop at four and let my body rest. I think doing all the workouts with no rest really effected my run.
Sunday - rest! Finally!!!
What's up for this week? Well, my first ever half marathon is on the 10th! Yikes! I'm nervous, scared, and excited all at the same time.
