Hi lovelies. How was your week?
Does anyone else read Leo Babauta’s Zen Habits blog? It’s on my Feedly feed, but I don’t read it every week. But I happen to take a look recently, and a post really hit home for me. I’ve been feeling a bit stressed. (I wrote about it here.) Leo wrote about his method for dealing with stress and I thought it was worth sharing.
In other news, I want to start sharing a song of the week with these weekly fitness rundowns. Interested? Great. Let’s start right now.
This week’s tune: “I’m glad I hitched my apple wagon to your star” by The Boy Least Likely To
It’s not new, but I re-found it and re-fell in love with it. It’s upbeat and has a unique yet catchy sound.
Now for our regularly scheduled recap:
Monday: I took a class called “Endurance” at Uplift Studios. It was a fabulously fun and challenging workout. Lot’s of jumping around and tons of strength work with weights. Also, great 90s music.
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:
Hey guys. I wanted to tell you about a great charity event in NYC coming up on October 2. It’s called Dare to Bare and the goal is to set aside your insecurity and inhibition and workout in Union Square in just a sports bra.
Please sit back and relax as you board this bicycle built for two headed down fitness memory lane.
When I lived in DC I briefly saw a personal trainer. I think I got 3 free sessions with a new gym membership. That trainer was obsessed with the rowing machine. I had never used one before and my introduction to the rower was characteristically spastic. I remember struggling to work the electronic monitor and once that was sorted, to look like a vaguely normal person when fake rowing. I always got my feet stuck in the sneaker cages, which I argued to the trainer posed a serious evacuation hazard. To date, aside from a few brief dances with the rower at the fhitting room, those training sessions were my only interaction with the machine.
Until last week.
Hello! How is your week going? Last week for me was largely about taking it easy so I didn’t head to the Cherry Blossom 10 miler sore. Here’s what went down.
Monday: Didn’t work out.
Tuesday: Didn’t work out. (Cut me some slack, the week before was pretty intense.)
