Yesterday started with yet another blizzard, which kept me from making it to the 5:30am boot camp class. I came to the conclusion that attempting to drive through the 12′ snow drifts that form on our street was not smart, especially considering Derek wasn’t there to come to the rescue. Probably the best life choice I’ve made in a long time because I counted 9 cars stuck in the snow between our house and the stop sign 1 mile away.
I threw clothes and shoes into my gym bag to take to work having no idea what my intentions were for a workout buy knowing that I would need to figure it out and fit one in eventually. Kelly (my fitness partner in crime) and I decided on this workout that I found on Instagram:
Wow. This workout was so exhausting. We substituted the 10 minutes of spinning with 10 minutes of running instead. The second circuit was killer and the last 10 minute run felt like the longest 10 minutes of my life. I was really pleasantly surprised with this workout. I really like the group fitness classes because I push myself a lot harder than when I workout on my own, but having Kelly there helped to push me through it.
The only thing that separated me from my husband and friends (and a day off…hallelujah) after work was my 3 hour business class. I rode to Grand Rapids with my favorite Kimbles, and for some reason I thought it’d be a great idea to get out of the truck into a snow bank. After all, I have waterproof boots so I’m basically invincible. I ended up falling on the ice and landing chest first on the bank and covering my bags (and myself) in snow.
Class lasted 17849493 hours and then we were finally off! I can hardly wait for the weekend ahead. I’m not a very graceful skier, and considering my track record over the past few days I’ll be lucky to make it out of there with no broken bones. Fingers crossed!
Anyone have anything fun planned for the weekend? Snowboarding vs. Skiing- what’s easier for beginners? Considering my unsuccessful attempt at snowboarding last year I’m really hoping this whole skiing thing works out for me.
