Despite a rigorous study schedule, I did make time to squeeze in workouts. I just know that I’m able to focus and keep calm much better during stressful times if I just exercise, even if it’s only for 15 minutes. Here’s what I got done, since my last update:
Friday: Barre Style class. I was inspired by my blogging partner to try something new. Like Maddie, my experience with this class was not at all what I expected from a barre class. This class focused a lot on strength training but through squat jumps, exercise balls and some P90x style moves. Also, there was not an actual use of a “barre”. The instructor was a bit on the bootcamp style of teaching which was scary at first but when I realized she was actually very nice, I chilled out and was able to enjoy the class. The last 10 minutes of the class were spent Zumba-ing with weights; I am not a Zumba kind of girl (read: no rhythm) and this was probably the most painful part of the class for me. Overall, it was not what I expected but if I just think of it as a strength training class, I’m okay with it and probably will try it again.
Saturday: Biked 18 miles.
Monday: 50 Minute Spin Session.
Tuesday: 50 Sit Ups & 50 Push Ups
Wednesday: 50 Sit Ups & 50 Push Ups
Thursday: 35 Minute Run
Friday: Run around like a crazy person getting ready for Valentine's because I hadn’t done everything yet!
Saturday: Terrible 4 mile run. Will need to redo this one soon.
Monday: Rest. I really didn’t need rest, I was mostly just lazy. I’ll be working out tonight, no doubt.
I owe you a recap of my Valentine’s Day dinner, our plan was a success! For now, I need to go look up a good swim workout.
Happy National Drink Wine Day!
