So anyway, I'm thinking that I am going back to the same class next week. We'll see what happens.

Mixin' It Up
I have been trying to get some variety into my workout routine. All that running was obviously hard on my body and I've realized I can still get ready for a marathon, without running every single day. Every time I go to the gym to take a new class I think to myself, "I should totally do this every week. It fits into my schedule. It's fun...." and so on. Come the next week, same time, I find myself off doing something else, usually playing with Zach and thinking that I can just run later in the day. Yesterday I tried a new class and today I am having trouble walking. It's a good sign when you find you've used muscles that obviously have not been used in a while! I've always been more of a cardio person, not taking the time to really stretch or use weights. I hear all the time that you need weights in your routine because it helps to build up the muscles and then your metabolism speeds up too. And silly me, I bought an ab roller that sits right next to my treadmill thinking I would definitely use it if I had it at home...... it is used by Garrett to hang his work clothes on. Something about those C-Sections just made my stomach not quite what it used to be!
