Happy Thursday! I’m in a good mood because today’s the 1 week anniversary of Love, Sweat, and Beers. Time flies when you’re having run, right? I think so! I can’t thank you all enough for your support and continued visits.
I mislead you guys yesterday. I actually had 2 eggs with dinner, not 1. Kev was still cooking when I got home from body pump, so I had him throw in an extra for me. I needed serious refueling! Sadly, there was not enough soy sauce to go around, and I let him finish it off. (Wife of the year?) I substituted with a little of Annie’s Light Ginger dressing. It was not quite as awesome, but still very satisfying.
Back to body pump – that was interesting. I’m not sure what to think. The workout made me feel like a wimp. Ladies much older than I were rocking about the same amount of weight. In addition, I hardly broke a sweat. Now here comes the good part; when I got home, I could hardly move! The class didn’t feel that hard at the time (difficult, yes, but not that difficult), but my body felt totally worthless later.
It’s a good thing I had a pre-scheduled running date this morning, otherwise I might have had to skip my run. My running buddy, her dog, and I had a lovely 3-mile jog. It was quick, but not too fast. I did skip abdominal work though due to the extra core work covered in last night’s workout. Now I’m energized and ready for the day.
On a side note, by running in the neighborhood instead of hitting the gym, I got to enjoy my coffee at home. The coffee at work is something like mud + bitter flavor + hot water + burned beans. Needless to say, this added to morning happiness!
Have you tried body pump, and if so, what are your thoughts?
Do you have a favorite exercise class or type of DVD, and what is it?
