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!  

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

I'm with you, Tasha. I have been doing lots of yoga and I'm tight in some places. Planned to get up this a.m. to go to yoga. Instead I am going to walk. Good to vary your workout. I like aerobics classes, but never seem to make it to them.
Good for you that you continue to be disciplined and workout.
Love you,
