On those days when not one workout will suffice, nor two – but three?? Ever have those days?
Yeah. Ahem. Me either.
But yesterday, it just worked out that way (pun intended).
The Bek and I began our day bright and early at the gym before work (wow, we really CAN get up before the sun rises) and while she worked out with some weights, I took a spin class. I love the class for many reasons but I was HATING it yesterday. Talk about feeling like a total wuss – I can typically begin on level 6 ish and work up but I couldn’t make it past 6 yesterday morning. I went the full hour being frustrated not being able to pedal faster when the instructor said so. And when she said get up to levels 15-18? Yeah, I left mine around 8. I didn’t get it. I am so much stronger.
After class was over, I hopped on another cycle to investigate the situation. I found out, through my own awesome detective skills, that something was very wrong with the bike I was on. How annoying. I still got in 20 miles. 🙂 Next week I will avoid that cycle and that whole side of the room altogether. #scarredforlife
And then after work, Ash came over and we all three went back to the gym. Again, Bek did weights stuff while Ash and I did a terrible circuit (terrible like really hard) that involved lunges, burpees, push-ups and other belligerently difficult movements. Cute. Then we thought, thought we would wind DOWN with a pilates class. Our lovely friend Catherine also joined! How adorable.
Chelsea, pilates is not something you wind down with… I learned that the hard way last night. IT WAS SO HARD. I am SO SO SO SORE.
I mean, it sounds harmless, but OUCH. All that core strength and long periods of time of lifting legs and what not… I’m not THAT good. 🙂
Anyway, three workouts was not the most amount any of us had yesterday. Ash, my girly in the picture above, worked out 4 times. I guess when you’re feeling it, GO FOR IT! And I also ate #allthefood because DAMN working out that much is intense. Don’t judge me for being a total pansy. I can barely walk.
Tonight I’m getting in a 10K with Ash, the same beauty from above, and I fully intend on taking Friday off before my Saturday long run #trainingfornothing.
Do you ever take spin? Or any class?
What’s the most you worked out in one day?
Not that they’re the same at all, but what do you prefer, yoga or pilates?
