I wasn’t feeling so awesome this week so I only worked out a few times. 

Before I jump into this week’s short re-cap I wanted to share a little info about my new iPhone case. I had a reckless history of iPhone ownership. I’ve drowned my phone in the toilet (who hasn’t?), tossed it down the incinerator of a large Manhattan apartment building (it was an accident), and left it in too many cabs to count (though the NYC Taxi dispatcher system always seemed to find me and return the phone; god bless them).

This week was a lot of fun, but now I’m pretty tired and my constitution is 90% sugar. I used up my 10 classes at ClassPass about a week before my CP cycle ended. ClassPass users, have you been going through your allotted amount ahead of schedule? Or is 10 classes per month a good amount for you?

I also have some pretty cool news. Cuckoolemon was chosen as one of Feedspot’s top 100 Fitness Blogs. Thanks, Feedspot!

And now, for this week’s workouts and some really silly photos:

Oh hey what’s up hello. (Yes I’m still into that song.) This week I slowly eased back into running. Nothing fancy, I maxed out at 2 miles, but I’m back in business. I also tried out a new studios on ClassPass.  Let’s dig in.

Monday: I tried a Powered class at The Movement, a new-to-me studio in Flatiron. The couple who owns the studio actually went to my sleep-away camp (Camp Green Lane: Where happiness counts!). The teacher Sarah Starkweather was fabulous. I arrived a few minutes late (eek) and she helped me set up quickly and even took the time to inquire about injuries. This class was barefoot, but there was still a bit of jumping, which I’m not ready for. But Sarah helped me modify. It was a unique and solid workout.

Long time no post! I was traveling for work last week and got lost in the sea of jet lag. Despite all my noble thoughts on fitness while traveling, I’ve been getting rundown and sick on work trips and I end up just trying to recover, and not breaking a sweat at all (unless you count the cold sweat from food poisoning last week, but that’s enough on that).

Since I’ve been back, I made a visit to my old love, yoga. Before there was barre and spinning there was yoga, which now seems old-timey and simple. I took a visit back to Laughing Lotus this week and it was pretty amazing. It’s a nice looking studio but there are no fancy locker rooms or you know central heat or air. It’s still a good time for a hippy. They have a great new student deal, $39 for an unlimited month of yoga.
