After attending by first ever barre class last Saturday (review up this week!), I felt inspired and got a few nice workouts in.
Sunday- My friend takes me to Planet Fitness for free because you get to bring a guest each time. It's nice to be in a gym again and use their equipment. I did some legs and arms before we finished up with 15 minutes on the elliptical. We only did a short amount of cardio because they were closing. Despite the tough barre class the day before I felt pretty strong- and also learned I am not that strong. I guess I've got to focus on my arms a bit more!
Tuesday- 15 minute run on the treadmill. I'm still working my way back into running after my injury so I did a slow jog to get something in. I felt pretty good. My legs were tight from not thoroughly stretching from my previous workouts.
Wednesday- Run club! We did a speed workout in Central Park. I participated in 2 800s and a 400. Yes, I'm that girl who cut her workout short but adding this much mileage and practically sprinting was bit too much too soon. I'm happy with what I did get in though. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be able to get my mileage back up and feel strong.
Thursday- Yoga with A View for core and quads. My god it felt so good for my body to be stretched out. My muscles were so tight on all week and I felt like a new person. I also love that I got to do yoga in front of our fake fire place.
Sunday- I started my day yesterday with an awesome little workout. I did my treadmills pre-set interval run for 30 minutes then did an abs series. My plans to run outside were shattered by the cold and the fact that I just gave away all of my running tights. It was the perfect way to start my day!
