group fitness instructor that teaches almost every day, it can be very hard to sneak in my own personal workouts. Gratefully, I am able to participate in four out of the five classes that I teach without compromising my ability to instruct. But I'm not a fan of physical overload, and I know my own limits. Here's how last week broke down for me:
No running for me on Monday! I woke up at 4:30AM for clients, and I taught a Barre Fit class at 9:15AM. So by the time I got free time, I was wiped clean of any and all energy. Plus, it was Halloween and costumes and candy were more important.
I hit the gym around 5:30AM and clocked a few miles:
It was another early morning for me. I had a client, then taught my HIIT class. No running, unless you count the laps we took in class. Roughly half a mile, I suppose.
Every other week, I teach Spinning on Thursdays. Last week, I did not have to teach so I snuck in another run. But I was up late watching the World Series. So I only clocked three miles. And they were slow:
I woke up early again for a 6:00AM client, then taught PiYo Live at 9:00AM. No running.
OK, so I don't normally run on Saturdays, but I snuck in 3.78 miles (according to my Garmin). I signed up for the HeartMiRun Virtual 5K. All of the proceeds go to Michigan state parks, so I met m local running group at ours to clock some time at our local park. I don't get out there much. It's full of trails that I don't know very well, but...man. It was beautiful. The perfect Fall experience. My mom came with me:
I met the running buddy. Here's what we clocked:
Today, I taught Barre Fit.
Tomorrow, it's time to vote.
Get out there, Americans.
