Oh hello! Last week was probably one of my most fierce weeks in a while. Not so much this week. But I had fun.
Monday: Physique 57in the am. It was the first day of Rosh Hashanah and I have a personal tradition of waking up early to work out before the long sit at temple.
Wednesday: I took a pretty meh Peloton class. The music was blah and I never really hit my stride.
When we planned our recent trip to Colombia, I knew I wanted to fit in an overnight hike. I had never been on one before and I was really curious and excited. I wasn’t sure what it would be like to hike at high altitude. I wasn’t sure how my ankle would hold up. Would I get bored? It was something I wanted to try. I knew it was a great fitness adventure and I wanted to have a go.
Here we go again. Another week and another recap. I love reading how other people switch up and schedule their weekly workouts, so I’m sharing my own week in review.
Is being healthy a discrete part of your day, or the way you approach your day?
I’ve written before about how much I love the Torqboard at Flywheel. It gives any rider a sense of how effective her ride was in terms of caloric burn or general exertion. Spending 45 minutes in a dark room listening to EDM is a really specific way to get your heart going. Part of the reason I think people like spinning is that its contained. You spin for 45 minutes, sweat yourself into a red-faced mess and then you can cross “workout” off your to-do list. I have no hard feelings about this. This is me most days.
But a spin class is a mere 45 minutes so to paraphrase Sonny from Grease “What are you suppose to do with the rest of the 23 hours and 15 minutes of the day?”
