Okay – just how ridiculous is this? I
ran drove to WallyWorld late last night to pick up some more fruit and get milk for breakfast. At 10:38 pm, it was 96 degrees. High today is going to be somewhere in the hundreds. Somebody just pack me on ice until October, please.
I high-tailed my rear end over to the Y after work yesterday to a) get a parking spot in the shade; b) work through my learning to walk training session and then c) hang out with K, the crazed woman who directs the Body Pump class. Learning to walk – fantastical. This week’s schedule calls for 5 minutes warmup, 25 minutes at speed and a 4 minute cooldown. I made 2.3 miles in the 34 minutes. My pace is picking up!
K? She’s wild. She’s electric, on fire. Seriously. She teaches a spinning class the hour before Body Pump, and she’s STILL be-bopping around and tossing free weights during our class! The session was a lot easier this week, mostly because I knew what to expect, and I didn’t load quite so many pounds on my bar for the tricep interval. It was a great workout, and I highly recommend it.

It is totally in the 100s here too – NO ONE is outside…everyone stays in so it's like a ghost town out there! HA!
Just found you through another blog…At my gym, the instructors are crazy amazing too. My Zumba instructor also teaches Spin, and then skips over to a Power (same as Body Pump) class that I take. I hope to one day be as fit!
OMG – my back is groaning just looking at that piccie. Hiya Angela 🙂 The naughty non-blogger is back for some inspiration… and nearly falling off my chair seeing what you are up to!
