Yesterday morning, I taught my Cardio Intervals group fitness class. I have been teaching this class since May and have had a pretty solid little group of participants. Most weeks, I would have a new circuit style routine featuring alternating cardio and strength exercises to get the heart rate up in quick bursts.
Because next week is the last class (this gym changes classes each semester based on a school schedule), I decided to throw a little curve ball at the class. Yesterday, I let THEM create the workout!! It was actually really fun!
I took each of the exercises that we had completed in workouts throughout the summer and put them in two baggies. One for Cardio (C) and one for Strength (S). The participants then alternated and picked 4 from the C bag and 4 from the S bag.
The workout turned out to be challenging, fun, and a great workout!! We will be picking from the bag next week too!
I then got home and had the best kind of mail waiting for me…..the kind where I get something free!!!!
I entered a Peanut Butter & Co. Twitter contest last week, and won a free jar of peanut butter plus a ton of other coupons for discounted PB!! 🙂
Unfortunately, I didn’t have the jar of peanut butter right there because I was pretty hungry and ready for dinner…so I got to work in the kitchen creating some salmon patties…
Dinner Kind of Flopped….
They tasted good, but they didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted. The consistency was a little crumbly…so back to the drawing board for that one! At least this flop was still edible 🙂
This morning was a morning for protein pancakes. I wanted to make sure to eat a hearty breakfast because after work I am planning on running between 5 and 7 miles.
I am running a half marathon in late September and really need to kick my butt back into training gear. I was doing pretty good (I had gotten up to 7 miles) about a month ago, but had to take a break so that I could focus on putting together group classes and learning Body Pump choreography. Now that I am all caught up (kind of…) and the race is soon, back to training I go!!!
Have a happy Friday, and don’t forget that you can still enter my contest for a Grocery List Consultation and Evaluation simply by liking me on Facebook and commenting on yesterday’s blog post!! The winner will be picked tomorrow morning.
