Last week was kind of a write off. I came down with a cold on Tuesday, which didn’t get too bad until the weekend. The worst of it hit me on Friday night so instead of going out, Josh and I got take out and watched back to back episodes of Homeland. It was actually kind of fun, save for the fact that my head felt like it was about to explode.
I also happened to have a lot of social events last week – baby shower, multiple celebrations for Josh’s birthday – so I had a fun time trying to smile and make small talk with people, all the while willing my nose not to run. Bleh.
Anyway, since I was feeling okay-ish up until Friday, I was still able to get to the gym:
Sunday – Climbing
This was a great session – I finally finished a route I’d been struggling with for weeks.
Monday – Off
Tuesday – BodyPump
I thought it might be a release class but no such luck. Still got a great workout.
Wednesday – Off
Thursday – BodyCombat
Finally, a release class! The class was team-taught by three instructors and a lot of the regulars from each of their classes joined us so it was a full house, which I love. The release itself was good – I’d have to do it a few more times before I get into specifics but the class flew by, which is always a sign of a fun workout.
Friday – BodyPump
This wasn’t a release class but we got a sneak peek at the new lunge track – holy shit! For those who haven’t done it yet, after a set of squats and lunges with the bar, you do two back to back sets of plyo jumps off and on your bench. This spiked my heart rate like crazy. I’m excited to see the rest of this release.
Saturday – Off
I felt like death in the morning so working out was out of the question. Luckily, I felt a little better by noon (thank you Advil!) when we had to go for lunch at Josh’s dad’s. In the evening, we went to Ballroom, an upscale bowling alley and bar in Toronto’s entertainment district, for Josh’s birthday. I’m a pretty pitiful bowler – I got the second lowest score of the group (I choose to blame my cold).
I’m feeling much better now so hopefully I’ll get to try a few more new Les Mills releases this week. I’m also making an effort to eat healthier – I’ve been feeling run down and feel like I need to take better care of myself. I picked some really nutritious recipes with lots of vegetables to cook this week so hopefully that will give me the energy boost I need.
Enjoy your week.
