After skipping the 5:30 am class on Wednesday, due to a sinus headache and running on CST, I was back at it this morning! I know, I know those of you that know me are in a state of shock that I’ve made it to not 1, but 3 5:30 am classes in the last week. The truth of the matter is I feel much better during the day when I log an early workout. I think more clearly, I have more energy and the endorphin rush lasts most of the day. #winning
Tomorrow I’ll be back at Burn for a 30/30 class, which is a combination of spin and a circuit class. Honestly, for me it is the perfect balance of cardio and strength training. Moreover, the 30 minute spin session is much easier on the tendinitis. Since I re-joined Burn in October, I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’ve been taking Barre, Yoga, Aerial Yoga, Circuit Burn, Power Burn and Spin classes at the gym. I’ve been a cardio queen for much of my adult life, but thanks to my awesome instructors at Burn I’ve gotten a lot stronger. I couldn’t have imagined being able to do one-legged planks and crunches on the TRX when I started. Now I can do them with relative ease – thanks Adam!
I wrote about the glamorous mom life that many of us lead. As a hockey mom, I don’t have the luxury of being able to go everyday or every weekend. For example, last weekend we were in Chicago, so I planned my workouts accordingly. This way I was able to maximize my time in the gym before heading north. This week isn’t much different with games on both days. Consequently, Sunday will be my rest day as it is also a travel day. Meanwhile Saturday morning I plan on enjoying circuit burn before heading to the Mayor’s hockey game. Since I was up early this morning and plan on getting up early tomorrow, I’m off to bed.
