Yogaing Again & a Look Back

Monday, I hit up my ripped class for the second week in a row! I think that may be a new record (for 2012 at least). As I look back at last year's training, I was very determined to get into shape. I was up and at the gym by 4 am, then came home to blog about it. Then, I worked for 9 hours and headed straight back to the gym for more training and classes. I was spending at least 3 hours (most of the time 4 hours) at the gym 4 days a week, then a 2 hour run on Sundays and a short run thrown in there somewhere. No wonder why I was always crashed out by 8 pm every single night. Since I don't have any major races coming up, I've been taking the training slow motion. I just want to keep in shape. I'm extremely happy where I am. 

So, I've decided to change up my workout schedule. On Mondays, I will either participate in Group Strength Training class (GST) or RIPPED, Tuesdays will be yoga, Wednesdays is spin night and my 5k training. There will only be working out 3 days a week (2 hours at a time) and the rest of the week will be spent working on the house. Jason's 40th birthday is in a few moths and I'm throwing him a party (and everyone will see the house for the 1st time). Being busy is great!

Yesterday, I had a great passenger in my car, on the way to the gym:

I was so excited all day long, for my yoga class. I haven't taken, or done, any yoga in too long to think of. I'm so happy I went. I did work my legs before hand and stretched them really well during class. My only complaint...the class went by too fast!

What is something you look forward to?


  1. I am looking forward to borrowing a bike from my mom so that I can cross train more. I think my body will thank me.

  2. Yoga ...haven't done it since my ankle injury.
