So how is everyone doing?!? I am loving this program. I know I co-wrote it... I should love it, right? Seriously though, I think it's my favorite workout that we have released yet! Here's what I have been up to with the workout:
After helping a lot of ladies figure out how to manipulate the program to suit their marathon and half marathon training goals, I did a minor amount of manipulating myself! I infused a BodyFlow class into my workouts for the week. If you aren't familiar with LesMills programming, BodyFlow is a 60-min class that incorporates yoga, Pilates and Thai Chi. It's very relaxing but it has an intense stretching and bodyweight strength component. It's a great compliment for the workout. I did that last week and this week (Week 2) on my cardio/run day in addition to the cardio/run training.
Um... Can I tell you how much I love hill sprints? I did them when I was preparing for a few shoots before I had Bryce, but I really haven't thought much of doing them since. I am so glad we wrote those into the workout. What a great way to burn calories and get your sweat. After all, work smarter and take advantage of your gym time!
Today is technically my run day, but Bryce woke up super early this morning, so that meant that he napped early and I missed my window to go to the gym this morning after an appointment that I had. While I may be at the gym, I'm actually sitting in Jim's truck writing this post. (5:45pm) Bryce fell asleep again on the way here and I didn't want Jim to miss his chance to work out. So... since we have a no-wake policy in our house, I'm stuck out in the car! Note: He did wake up before Jim finished his workout, but by that time the gym had moved in to "Date Night" mode and I wasn't allowed to bring Bryce in because he wasn't registered. We took selfies instead! (See above)
Thank you to everyone for the prayers yesterday (see Facebook). My Autoimmune Disease can be both nasty and cruel at times and although it will never hold me back, especially from motivating any of you, your encouragement and prayers are greatly appreciated!
