Oh hello, friends. I’m finally getting into a better workout groove. I’m so tempted by ClassPass that I end up over-committing to classes and not running enough (to prep for all of those races I haven’t written about yet). But I’ve got my head on straight now and my eyes on the prize(ish).

Last week I tried some new things and visited some of my regular fitness hangs.

Here’s what I got into:

Monday: I was in DC and finally got to take my first Barre3 class. I went to the Georgetown location with my friend Tricia (you may remember her from other fitness adventures). I arrived a bit late due to a minor Uber fiasco, so I was a bit scattered when I entered the class. It took me a while to get in the zone, but once I did liked the class. My triceps were sore the next day, which is a solid barre class accolade. I’ll definitely give the West Village Barre3 a try, too.

Treadmills just don’t do it for me. I like running because it makes me feel athletic, happy and free. Running in place feels wrong. It’s a cruel joke to exert so much energy and go literally nowhere.

What sounds more like a human science experiment than a room full of people sweating and heaving on treadmills?

Despite my anti-‘mill stance, I love Mile High Run Club. For those unfamiliar, Mile High Run Club is New York’s first indoor-running training program, and yes they use treadmills. Think SoulCycle but swap the bikes for the real mental toughness machines.
