Yesterday, I made a lot of decisions on a whim:
Running and Yoga.
I wasn’t going to do either of them actually. I was planning on doing Body Pump, which I didn’t do at all.
I ran 3 miles and went to a 2 hour Yoga class just because that is what I felt like doing. Sometimes, it’s fun to toss “the plan” out the window. I don’t do it often, because I ❤ to plan things. Seriously, I plan EVERYTHING — workouts, what I am going to eat, what I am going to wear, what I am going to do on the week days, weekends, and vacations.
Anywho, I didn’t follow the plan and it felt great. My legs felt tired from the workout the other day but Yoga felt AMAZING. Way better than two weeks ago.
Today, I tried something new and went to a new Cross fit gym that will be very close to my new apartment in South Charlotte. I am moving on July 2nd!!
I did their e3 strength and endurance class, which is very similar to Cross fit but without scores. Jen from Peanut Butter Runner taught the class. She is sweet and was very motivating during the workout. Thanks, Jen!
The workout was tough! It was only 17 minutes long but definitely intense. We did a workout called “Gone in 60 Seconds,” which is 1 minute intervals of box jumps, kettle bell squats, burpees, pushups/tricep dips, and cardio on the rowing machine. We did this circuit 3 times. Afterwards, we used a foam roller on our quads and hamstrings.
Cross fit is definitely different from anything I have done before. It’s nice that it is always a different workout but I do love body pump! I may consider doing cross fit instead of body pump, or maybe a mixture of both…
What do you prefer Cross Fit or Body Pump?
I am craving a run!
