Great Workout Day!

Saturday, February 07, 2009

Thursday I was soooooo tired! I had had the plan to workout at the Y that night taking the Strength Class and then the Cycling class. Well, mom calls and she has a dr's appointment that I need to take her to. I'm sitting in the dr's office waiting foom and I am just falling asleep in the chair. I could barely stay awake! So there was that and then by the time the appointment was over it was too late to get to the Y on time. So no workout that day.

Friday I was to do 30 mins on the elliptical and I overslept! I just kept hitting the snooze. SIGH - no workout.

SO! This morning I go to the Y and since I am the teacher, well, there's just no not getting a wokout in is there? First class was at 8 am and it's double step. I had taught it 2 weeks ago and it went a little rough. I've never taught double step before this class or made up a routine to one so it's been interesting. One of the ladies who had taken my class a couple of weeks ago had made a comment to another instructor who was taking my class that she felt that I wasn't breaking it down very well... well... that's OK. I appreciate constructive criticism. :)

I had a good turnout this morning and the same lady was there. I taught the class, breaking things down in the classic way, and we all had a blast. Afterward she stopped me told me what a great class it was! It's good when you get your rhythm going :)

At 9 am I taught the Strength Class and had a HUGE turnout! Another good class. :)

Then while my daughter was in swimming I took a cycling class - didn't go full out but still got the heart rate up and had a good workout.

I think I burned 1500 calories in those 3 classes - if not more! WOO HOO!...



I need a nap!

    Nothing beats a good workout when you've missed a couple. If I miss more than 2 days of exercise I REALLY get lazy and unmotivated. Glad to hear that you took that negative and turned it around for the next class.
    Keep up the hard work!

    Wow, that's a terrific workout! I really admire anyone who can teach an exercise class. For me it's enough to try to follow the moves, but to be able to anticipate them and shout out what is going to happen next, and then execute them in model-perfect form, is really admirable.

    Also, good for you for using the constructive criticism in a positive way instead of being offended. :)
