Trying New Things!

Last night at the gym marked my 5th week straight, according to Foursquare. I was pretty pumped when I saw that little message with my points for the check in. Why? Because I honestly think that has been the longest consecutive run of hitting up the gym. Below is a little update of new things going on with my workouts and motivation:

Since starting spin class at work in August and not running up until 5 weeks ago, it has gotten easier. My legs feel stronger and yell at me to go further. My pace may be slower but I can go longer at one time [insert dirty thought here].

Last night I tried out a pinterest workout. I haven’t sweat thru a shirt in a very, very long time. Which means I knocked out 3 miles for the first time since August.
Run 1/2 mile
10 pushups
20 squats
30 crunches
Repeat 6 times

At work we have started a MOVable Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to hit 100 miles in 4 weeks. Everyone participating is wearing a MOVband which tracks your overall movement and converts them into steps and miles. Talk about a motivator! Over the past two weeks I have been averaging 13,000 MOVs which is roughly 5 miles for me! Last nights workout alone was worth 5,000 and I had a total of 16,500!

Tonight I am signed up for a warm yoga for all levels and Thursday I am scheduled for a spin class at a local hot spot. Both of which I am excited to try out.
