Well I survived kickboxing class, AND the next day a girlfriend took me with her to the cool gym in town and I did a spinning class and ab class with her. What was I thinking.... Kickboxing was great, I felt pretty good afterward, and I want to keep doing it. Helps when you have a friend doing it with you too, I was able to talk my sister in law in going with me, and I think she enjoyed it too =). So, I am feeling all awesome and then the next morning is spinning class. Don't get me wrong, I love riding my beach cruiser all around the neighborhood, but spin class was a butt kicker. It was fun, they held the class in a completely dark room, with lots of nice loud music, but the bike seat is small and tiny, and I don't exactly have a big hiny. It lasted an hour, and my legs were killing me afterward! It was doable though, because if I got too tired I could just let up on the resistance, and fake that I was working just as hard as the others lol. Then as soon as it was over, I tried to run away from my friend and say I was going to do some weight training, but she made me go to the ab class. That class was 1/2 an hour, and I survived a million crunches and some planking. By noon though I could hardly walk. The husband planned a fun date night too us, and showering and dressing for it was hilarious when you can hardly move.
I enjoyed going to my friends gym, and even though I love my cheap gym, I have to admit it would be nice to have classes which my gym doesn't offer. I think I will compromise and just stay at my gym, and take a few kickboxing classes from the Boot Camp lady who does them near my house. Since I did all of the extra classes Friday I didn't start my running program, and I am not sure if I will start Sunday or Monday. I worked out Monday- Friday, so I need to allow my body to recover.
Our date night was still really fun despite me being sore, and Dave has a sprained ankle from a treadmill injury. We looked funny hobbling around. We went to dinner, and a movie, and the kiddos spent the night with their grandparents and one of their cousins.
I have been looking around for running shoes. I am really liking how the minimalist shoes look, and they seem to be really popular right now. On a recent shopping adventure I ended up buying all new sneakers for the girls, because I still can't make up my mind, and they fell in love with some Nike's and Pumas. Go figure. Our new neighbor who runs was telling me I need to check out a website called Roadrunner, as they have a deal where you can try out tennis shoes and you have 90 days to return them if you don't like them after using them. She said it took her 4 pairs before she found a pair she liked using the site, and they have all the popular brands/styles.
