Back to the iron

I did it. 

It's been roughly six months since the last time I made it to a BodyPump class.  But, at last, I got back there on Sunday. It was the perfect time -- I still got to sleep in a bit, but it didn't take all day -- and there were only about 10 people in the class.  It was nice not to be so crowded in there.  

Since it's been so long, I figured it was best if I went back to beginner weight. I'm glad I did.  That was still a challenge.  Sure, it's kind of discouraging to see how much of my strength and endurance I've lost, but ... who cares?  No one else in that class cared what I was lifting.  They were doing their own thing.  And starting over is better than not starting at all, right?

I was sore for a few days after the class. But it was that good kind of sore.  I realized I had missed that feeling, and I'm looking forward to keeping BodyPump in my schedule.

Honestly, I think it could become a nice Sunday routine.  Not this Sunday, because I'll be out of town, but ... other Sundays.  Yep. I could do it.


Last week's workouts
Friday: 10-minute treadmill warm-up + arms/shoulders
Saturday: Off (Although I helped a friend move, so I feel like that should count as a workout.)
Sunday: BodyPump
Monday: 3 miles on the treadmill
Tuesday: Off
Wednesday: 1 mile on the treadmill + legs and core
Thursday: 2 mile run on the trails!!!

Yeah, this was kind of a crazy week.


  1. Moving definitely counts as a workout! Congrats on getting back to body pump!
