Happy Monday All –
Last week i dabbled back into the pool of some more intense work outs to begin my Bone Frog Training…don’t be scared by what you are about to read…
Monday…It had been a little over a week since I had made a spin class… I lost a few pounds of sweat but I felt really good about the work out…it’s been my main form of cardio for the last 6 months. Ellen (the owner of Burning Heart Yoga) and I even prancerized after class…see the video below courtesy of Bears’ sports guru Elizabeth.
Wednesday…I took a boot camp class with my buddy Fish…he was the one that got me involved in all these mud runs/challenges in the first place. It had been months since I let him kick my butt…and not only did that hurt for days, but my arms, and legs too. I was unable to drive myself after the class to go watch the Bruins that night because I had raptor arms and couldn’t lift them high without pain. Needless to say after three days of some funny bodily feelings…I recovered and I will be going back this week.
Saturday…Saturday morning was another spin class. This one isn’t regular spin…but power spin. A little harder than Monday’s class…and on top of that it was the day after another Bruins game…you know who stayed out late Although the class was mildly tougher than usual due to the previous nights shenanigans…I made it through and felt great two hours later.
Sunday…Sunday I attempted some kayaking with one of my girlfriends. The river was moving rather quick, but we observed a woman towing another kayak with her kid in it and decided that us twenty somethings could manage…after attempting to paddle upstream and going little to nowhere in 20 minutes we gave up and headed to the Country Club for beer…kudos to that woman we saw earlier chugging along like a champ!
This week a plan on much of the same…although the kayaking maybe be held off until the river calms down a bit.
**For all you who doubt you can handle the full 9 mile Bone Frog Challenge try for 3 miles…they have it set up so each of you can do 3 miles of the course in setting up a relay team. Check out their site for more info! And keep checking the blog for some hopeful training inspiration…now prancercize away! – AJ
