A couple of notes before getting to my workouts from last week:
Just as I said in last week’s post that ideally, I would like to take two barefoot sculpt classes a week, I didn’t take any and instead tried two new-to-me barre classes. Which I LOVED. Two different teachers yet both styles were fairly similar to Pure Barre. I was in my element.
The good news for me is that literally every morning every day of the week, I have a class (or two, or three), that I love and can choose from depending upon my mood and schedule.
I realized that I didn’t run very much when writing this recap. Here’s why:
1 – I’m happy to take classes instead of run
2- Work was insane and draining which zaps me of my running mood along with being in the city and sleeping a little less.
3- I had PMS which left me feeling hot/cold/hot/cold without actually being hot or cold plus nauseous but not nauseous. This situation also made me forget that I would normally want to run.
Last Week’s Workouts
It’s worth mentioning that I do walk on the treadmill often before/after classes in the morning. I don’t include those walks in the list below because I don’t track them. They are pretty informal.
Monday – 20 Min Run + Barre
I LOVED this barre class. We used a ball, 2-lb weights, and a resistance band.
Tuesday – 45 Min Treadmill
This turned into a ranging incline walk with some running in the middle — not my typical workout but it’s where I was today.
Wednesday – Off
Thursday – Barre
Another great barre class! 2 lb weights + ball.
Friday – Pilates
This pilates class used the ring, ball, and 2 lb weights.
Saturday – 3 Mile Run + Spin
I love this combo of running first and then jumping into the spin class. 3 miles in 26 minutes basically on the dot without feeling like I was doing more than a warm-up. It was great. Spin was excellent as well.
Sunday – Precision Walk + Pilates
I say this every week lately but the treadmill walking class at Equinox is SO GOOD. Inclines ranged from as low as 3 during rest to 14 — time flies.
