I did an hour and a half boxing class last night with a couple of friendies and it was brutal! SO FUN.
We started out with a 9-station circuit that included boxing and jump rope, jumping and rolling, pushups, side runs, sit ups, tricep dips and MORE JUMPING, lunges and planks..phew! Then we did a circuit with gloves *on* using the punching dummies. (I did not get to hit an actual person.) THEEEEN we did sets of pushups/side planks, sit ups and a bunch of neck and ab/oblique exercises that were absolutely insane.
Did you even know you could exercise your neck muscles? I thought I was a pretty worldly girl, but this was new to me.
And hell no, you don’t get to see any pictures. I was gushing like the Deepwater Horizon. (OH! Too soon?)
Since I had no morning run to contend with, I slept in today — and it’s a good thing because the weather is absolutely retarded. It was 80°/90% at 7 a.m. The NOAA hazardous weather outlook cautions “dangerous heat and humidity.”
Stop it you’re scaring me.
Anyhoo – thanks to all for the great advice on the 10k+ run – I think I’m going to try to do 1.5 warm-up/cool-down on each end of the 10k. I’m scheduled to do my volunteer gig Saturday from 11-5 so I have to keep in mind that I won’t be able to recover on the couch for the rest of the day.
By the way, tomorrow we’ll be celebrating my exodus from the womb. And I really deserve a lot of praise for making it out of there the way I did.
Let’s be real here, it’s the kid who’s transcending; soaking wet, cold and terrified. All the mom has to do is lay there, right? So. Congratulations to me on a job well done!
Thank you and have a nice day.
