I've had quite the adventurous day, fitness-wise. I started out my morning with a bit o' Jillian (Michaels) and her 30 minute Yoga Meltdown. I haven't done that DVD in a while. I'd forgotten how hard core she is. After that, I geared up and headed outside to go for a run. I had intended to do the 9 mile loop. As I started out, things seemed fine, though there were some very scary looking clouds rolling in - quickly. I got out a little over 2 miles and when the rain and fierce wind started, I decided to just turn around and head back before I got too far and had to call in hubby for a ride back home. So, back home after just 4.5 miles at about a 10 min./mile pace, I took off the wet clothes, and put on different workout clothes, started some laundry then got on the treadmill where I did run/walk intervals for 45 minutes.
Then, late this afternoon, after feeding the kids dinner and getting them all started on their homework, etc., Chris and I went in to the gym to do some weights. We got right to work doing our usual rotation: bench press (I'm up to 60 pounds, by the way!), bicep curls with free weights, tri-downs, lat-pulls, sit-ups, and shoulder press. After about 45 minutes, we saw our favorite spin instructor heading down the hall towards the spin room. I asked Chris if we could go take the class, even though we weren't planning to because we usually go to spin Tues./Thurs. mornings. He was reluctant, knowing how tough it is, but he conceded and we jumped in on the class. Man, I LOVE spinning. Tonight's class seemed particularly tough. I mean, I literally had pools of sweat accumulating on the mat under my bike. But I always feel so great afterwards. It's kind of empowering. And we're still planning to hit the 8:30am class.
