Not really. But as I'd spent a girlie day away from work and home on Thursday, I felt that my body really deserved another beating. Or maybe it was to work off the gazillion mini-cakes I scoffed during afternoon tea in London.
|So. Much. Cake. Such. A. Crap. Pic.|
I thought that maybe it was because of my knee and having to do alternative stuff when everyone else was running. Or because I was being overly cautious, again, because of my knee. I was cursing myself for having signed up before being back to normal.
Then this morning happened.
I trotted over for the 11am class and could feel myself being a thousand times more cheery than I'd been during any of the past four classes. We started with a warmup, went into some techy lifts (overhead squats for me, the first lift that I actually did well right from the start!) and then got down to business with the WoD (workout of the day).
We did proper circuits today (and by proper I mean the more traditional form of circuits most people know), spending a minute on tire flips (OMG hard!), rowing, flipping weighted bars from one arm to the other (I think that's the grappler press), knee-ups while hanging from a pull-up bar, burpees followed by ball slams and farmer walks. Phew...
|Yes, I'm still part of the beginners, but at least I came in second fastest (for once!) during the 2nd set of circuits!!! Also, they now call me JJ. Apparently Jen is too confusing?!|
Then it hit me. I'm a morning person. At least when it comes to working out. However, the intro course takes place Mondays at 7pm and Wednesdays at 8. Those are my 'starting on dinner' and my 'sitting down to eat' slots of the day. No wonder that I don't have half the energy that I had this morning.
So phew... it's all good. I got it. I just need to get through the course and then start going to the morning classes, cause those clearly work for me!
Why is this such a big deal, you might ask? Cause I'm desperately searching for something to keep me occupied while not running AND make me stronger and fitter than ever before.
When do you like to work out?
Have you ever struggled like that just because of the time of day?
