Today I’m sharing a recap of my workouts this week.
I took a rest day on Sunday.
I just wasn’t feeling a workout on Monday morning, so I took another rest day.
I got myself to the gym on Tuesday morning for a cardio workout on the elliptical.
To be honest I really wasn’t feeling the work workout. Usually once I get a playlist or a podcast going I’ll get in the zone, but that wasn’t the case. I listened to three things before I finally decided on an 80’s playlist.
I ended up telling myself that Once I made it 25 minutes I could call it done if I still wasn’t feeling it. That’s exactly what I did. I got my 25 minutes in, and then walked the track for another 5 minutes for my cool down. It was a less than stellar workout but I still got it done.
Tuesday evening I went to an ashtanga unwind class. The first 40 minutes or so was an abbreviated primary series of ashtanga yoga followed by restorative poses for the rest of the 75 minute class. It was the perfect combination of working hard and sweating and relaxing.
I took my last rest day of the week on Wednesday. I had an early morning appointment to get some blood work done, so I figured I would take it easy since I got in two workouts the day before.
I was at the gym again on Thursday for a cardio workout on the elliptical. I knew I wanted to do something low impact because the plantar fasciitis in my right foot was acting up again. I spent 30 minutes on the elliptical while listening to a NPR podcast.
Friday morning I was able to attend the yoga class of a friend. She’s actually the one who got me into yoga years ago when I really needed it. I’m so grateful that she did. It was a great flow and restore class. It only took me a few minutes and a couple sun salutations to get me started sweating.
Since this weekend is my last one of yoga teacher training, I thought that it would come full circle to start off the weekend with the person who first introduced me to yoga.
I’m writing this post Friday afternoon before I go to yoga teacher training, but I’m expecting to do a seniors yoga class this morning – at least that’s what’s on the schedule. I’m actually pretty excited about it because I can see myself working with that population when I’m done teacher training.
