My spring break was great and I am so thankful for a much needed break! Although I was very productive over break, I know I also got some great R & R time as well.
Anyway, here's how I moved last week!
Monday - 60 minute Zumba
I tried a class with a different instructor because it was offered during the day. She was okay, but I was bummed when she cut the class short by about 15 minutes. I told myself I would go to my regular Zumba class in the evening, but then that didn't happen. Womp, womp.
Tuesday - 4 mile run/walk and 45 minute Piloxing class
This was my first Piloxing class and I loved it! She got the intensity up really high and was extremely energetic. I'm definitely going to this class again!
Wednesday - 60 minute Body Pump, 30 minute walk on the treadmill, 60 minute Zumba
Ay yi yi. Was I ever sore after this! Luckily, by Friday I pushed through the pain and I think I just stretched it away! Haha! That horrible soreness is a sign that I *need* to do more pump and strength training.
Thursday - 30 minute bike ride
Due to the intensity of Wednesday, I skipped Zumba and did a 30 minute bike ride (on the new bike!) instead. I was still incredibly sore and the bike ride didn't help that, but I'm glad I got some activity in.
Friday - 75 minute Zumba "happy hour"
My gym does Zumba happy hours on Fridays every so often and they're kind of like mini Zumbathons. They are so fun!!! I was really sore, and honestly, worried about making it through this class, but once I warmed up I was fine! Afterwards all of us Zumba regulars hung out that gym celebrating one of our favorite instructor's birthdays and drinking beer (yes, our gym serves beer! I was surprised!)
Saturday - 60 minute Zumba class and 30 minute walk on the treadmill
This class was tough. I was just so tired!! I powered through and then hopped on the treadmill to get my steps up to 10k. I usually get a small run in after this class, but the thought of exerting much energy sounded awful.
Sunday - 60 minute Power Flow Yoga class and 30 minute walk on the treadmill
Gah, sometimes yoga is so hard for me. This class was hard for me. I could not get into tree pose for the life of me and felt silly making pathetic attempts the entire time. After the class I did feel good though. I needed a good stretch.
My steps for this week are lower than they normally are due to being on spring break. I was hoping I could make up for those steps by working out a little more and keeping myself busy, but that proved hard than I thought it would be!
I really need to get in more running. I only ran once last week and that is pathetic. I have a 10k coming up at the end of April and I would really love to pull off a good time, but if I don't get my booty out on some quality runs, that is NOT going to happen!
How did you move last week? What do you do when you're no longer motivated to run? (if you're a runner)
