And more squats! Today I went to a free Body Pump demo offered by the Rec Center I work at and did about a million squats (okay, not a million, but it felt like it!). My supervisor and my mentor for Zumba were the instructors of the class – it was awesome!
Body Pump(TM) is a choreographed barbell class meant for low weight/high reps for toning and muscle endurance. According to their website, you can get up to 800 repetitions in one class! Nuts! I signed up for the next session, so I’ll be going 2x/week. Yay for new classes!
I went to the class after flying through a 3.5 mile run. My training plan had 5 miles on the calendar, but I got stuck at work and wasn’t able to get over to the Rec in time. I could have skipped Body Pump, but I’m glad I didn’t! I’ll likely make up the 1.5 miles while coaching this afternoon for GOTR, so it’s all good with me!
(I was NOT running outside with it feeling like 14 degrees!)
Yesterday: I pretty much passed out when I got home last night (I guess my rough night of sleep had caught up to me!), so here’s my afternoon update:
I got to the ride and tone class a little early and was able to squeeze in a few extra miles before the class actually started. The instructor had an awesome workout planned and I was super sweaty by the end!
I know…so glamorous!
Awww yea! 16 miles!
