Wednesday my friend Bonnie joined me for MetCon class. It was killer, but I had a great workout and was proud of how well I kept up. After the class Dan coached me on some jogging I've been desperately wanting to do but just couldn't get the hang of. Did you know you actually have to LEARN how to run properly? What a crazy thought! Anyway, Daniel noticed my stride was too long and showed me how to shorten it. I was able to jog at 5 miles per hour for 7.5 minutes. Not an incredibly long time, but awesome for me. In the past I couldn't get through 3 minutes without my breathing becoming out of control. I'm looking forward to giving it another try tonight!
Last night Daniel, Bonnie, and I tried Pure Combat. It's a cardio kickboxing class that includes arms. Wow, what a workout! It was awesome, and for the first time since working out my abs are sore enough that I KNOW I got a good workout for that part of my body. Daniel liked the class enough he is going to join me. Whooo Hoooo!
It is so much fun to workout with a friend. I really appreciate Bonnie joining me, and having Daniel in class is an inspiration to work just a little harder. His workouts are so intense that it's a challenge to see how closely I can keep up with him. Next week my friends Dan, Mira, and Alison are joining us for Combat. Watch out, Pure Fitness, we're taking over and getting in shape! Maybe they'll feature our group in their next commercial. How a group of friends got together and changed their lifestyle. That would be neat.
Tonight's class..... MetCon. Last tough workout of the week. I'm going to make the most of it!
