A few notes before getting to my workouts from last week!
My Ever-Changing Gym Routine:
Do I not always say that my workout routine will vary from week to week? Well literally, no kidding on that.
While I’m a morning person, I don’t need to get up as early right now so the 7:00 AM class time range is not necessary. Instead, I can explore the Equinox classes that happen at later times.
If I thought my Gemini personality had issues a few weeks ago, look at my issues now:
7:45 AM Spin? 8:00 AM Barre? Spin at 9:15? Barefoot Sculpt at 8:45? Do I get up for the 7:00 AM pilates anyway? Can I wait until the 9:30 spin? Pilates at 9:00 AM, for an hour? Can I hold off until 10:15 for a class or even 11:15 to try Yoga?!
On the positive side, I HAVE SO MANY OPTIONS at Equinox. My workout routine continues to vary, and the time options work for any possible schedule. I love Equinox so much and remain so happy that I joined a few months ago. It’s so worth the investment.
Little Bits of Running:
As far as running goes, I think I’m in the little bits-at-a-time phase.
I did get a fresh pair of Brooks Ghost 14s (on sale!) so it was fun to run a few miles. Other than that, I just don’t feel like running much. I’m finding that squeezing in little bits of running, as in 10 – 20 minutes of running prior to a class is working for me right now.
At the moment, I think I’m enjoying spin as my main form of cardio. This opinion can change at a moment’s notice.
Forgot My Water Bottle:
Clearly, my head is not in its usual place because I FORGOT my water bottle on Saturday, even though I filled it up while getting ready to leave the house.
I felt so LOST without my water bottle! What a weird feeling.
Last Week’s Workouts
Monday – 15 Min Run + 45 Min Barre (2 lb weights + ball)
15 minutes of easy running with inclines mixed in to get me back into running after an unplanned week off.
Tuesday – 45 Min Treadmill Walk + One Hour Pilates Fusion (2 lb weights + sliders)
My treadmill walk was precise enough to include the time for today.
This was my first time taking Pilates Fusion – I would describe it as similar to the other pilates classes I take only it incorporates additional sculpting exercises. It was great!
Also, using sliders makes things extra hard.
Wednesday – 45 Min Spin (Cycle Power)
Thursday – Outdoor Walk (rest day from the gym)
Friday – 3 Mile Run + One Hour Barefoot Sculpt (2 lb weights + ball + small towel)
Saturday – 15 Min Run + 45 Min Spin (Anthem Ride)
Sunday – 45 MIn Precision Walk Elevate + 45 Min Pilates (ring)
