Week One Wrap Up
Friday: I was supposed to meet Krista at the gym for a 60 minute interval/circuit workout, but I was super late and we only did about 35 minutes for 300 calories burned. Even though I was late and the workout was cut short, I really enjoyed it. It was our first go at this new workout and it went pretty well. We are doing it again on Tuesday, so I will post that complete workout later.
Saturday: Went to "The Class". Not good. It was the first time I had ever been to a class in which the owner taught and I was so disappointed. I was there for 55 minutes and only burned 400 calories. This is with me increasing the speeds on my own. The cardio bouts were the problem- he would have us sprint then drop to a walk. Then he'd forget about us! We'd be walking at a 4.0 for half of the rotation. Not Happy. I imagine this was just a bad day, since a lot of people rave about him. Still, I won't take his class again.
Sunday: I had to make up for Friday and Saturday so I had to step up my workout on Sunday. On my lunch hour (yes, I actually have work on Sunday's), I went to GoCycle for the GoBarbell class. This was March 11th. This was in Michigan. This was OUTSIDE! And it was amazing. What a gorgeous day and a fantastic workout! I was late to class (not a good week for me being on time), so I missed a round of walking lunges. I'm sure my calorie burn would have exceeded 300 had I been on time, but as it was, I burned 250 in 35 minutes.
After work I decided to take advantage of the fact that I work in a 12 story building and I ran the stairs. I ran up and then took the elevator down. I did this 5 times = 60 flights of stairs. I can't say I ran it all, it was hard! I would run 6 flights, walk one, run 3, walk one, finish and head down; or sometimes I'd run the steps and walk the landings in between each set. I burned 250 calories in 25 minutes.
I'm really happy with this Sunday work out and think I will do it every Sunday.
And finally- Sunday is Weigh In Day- I lost 1.5 lbs. I'm thrilled with this.
