Hey everyone! Wednesday already! Are you spring cleaning your diet yet?!
Things are winding down school-wise (only 1.5 weeks of classes and then some exams left!) yet I feel like life is gearing-up as I plan stuff for the summer and my internship in the fall.
I’ve branched out this week fitness-wise! I took Monday off because I was still exhausted from the weekend. Yesterday I met my friend Rachel at the Center Yoga Studio downtown for their free open house week.
We attended a Vinyasa Yoga I Prana Flow class which focused on breath and fluid movement throughout the practice. I’ll admit by 6:30 I was tired and was about to cancel but I’m glad I had set the date with Rachel because I felt so relaxed afterward. Note to self: practice yoga more often (story of my life).
This morning I SWAM! I was so proud of myself 🙂 My dad and I signed up for the Salem YMCA Sprint Triathlon on June 3rd.
My Dad and I at the Christiansburg Adventure Tri last summer…
I have not been in a pool since…um…well…October? A really long time. But I’ve got about 7 weeks to get in tip-top swim shape. Okay, honestly the swim is only 300 yards so I totally got that…But I do want a decent time AND I am thinking about signing up for the Jamestown International Tri July 1st so I better get moving on that.
I went to my favorite 7AM cycle class taught by Jessica and then hit the pool for a simple 750.
Warm-up Simple 750
Begin at a slow pace and increase speed each 25 m for a total of 250 m (5 laps)
Sprint 25 m and regular speed 25 m for a total of 300 m (6 laps)
Use pull buoy for 100 m (2 laps)
Cool down for 100 m (2 laps)
Again, nothing crazy but it felt good to be in the pool! Look for more swimming coming your way…
After, I downed some overnight oats and got my day started right.
Old pic but looked something like this plus a banana…
I dare you to try one new fitness thing this week and let me know what it is!
