Sunday~ Today I took my first Turbo Kick class. It was a lot of fun. It was a bit frantic from what I am used to, but I soon caught on and got swept up in the kickboxing frenzy! I figured I should try the class since I hope to become Turbo Kick certified next month.
I also lifted upper body before class. I am not sure if I became sore ( Monday) from this class or the weights or both! Love it though!
Monday~ I never made it to the gym for my early morning session. I decided to sleep in instead. The kids and I went to the gym after Miles' nap. I ended up doing 5 miles on the treadmill and lifting lower body. It was a very productive session- and the gym was practically empty. That's how I like it. I am not a social butterfly ( especially when I bring the kids) while I am the gym. I am there for a purpose--no time to waste..out of my way! I also taught 2 classes today.
Tuesday~ Today was my spinning class. It was pure strength all the way. Lots of hills. Lots of resistance. 5 minutes worth of sprints. Good stuff. I think the class loved it. I saw lots of new faces too, I sure hope they come back! I later taught 2 more classes.
Wednesday~ I almost skipped my early morning pilates class. I was up rather late with an annoying cough and got very little sleep. I still went though. I taught one class this afternoon. I decided to do my cardio later in the day. My daughter has a sports class at the gym, so I did my cardio before her class today. I ended up really pushing myself today. 15 minutes of( HARD) intervals on the step-mill. 15 minutes of ( HARD) intervals on the elliptical machine and finished it out with 10 minutes of steady state on the elliptical machine. Sometimes when I feel as strong as I did today, I think that I have not been giving it my all on previous workouts. Something for me to think about.....
