We had a substitute instructor at boot camp on Tuesday. Sheena had told her to push us hard in our upper body workout and she did just that. We ran through a lot of upper body exercises (biceps, shoulders, triceps, push ups), hill sprints and a few other running drills. We also did some pretty extensive plank and push up work. It was an awesome class!
I was hoping the rain would hold off long enough so that I could bike to work, but alas, it was not meant to be. Instead I went to hot yoga (the really intense class with the great instructor). I'm starting to notice improvements in my ability to hold poses for long periods of time.
I had to head out to the field (a 3 hour drive out of town) but didn't have to leave until 6:30 am. I got up early and fit in a nice 3 miler around the neighborhood in the drizzle. I made it back from the field in time for boot camp in what was now a downpour in 5 deg C (41 deg F) weather. Amazingly most of our class showed up - we must all be pretty hardcore! We alternated running drills with lunges and squats, tricep dips and push ups, back work and some hill sprints.
Believe it or not, today is a full on rest day! The only exercises I'm planning on are bicep curls with a martini or a glass of wine tonight. This is my last day in my 20s, so tonight I'm giving those 20s a proper sendoff with a night out with the girls. Drinks, dinner, dancing and all around revelry are on the schedule for tonight.
I'm turning 30!!! And I'm running 10 miles....
