New cross training workout

Leave a comment

I am very sad there is no spin class this summer. Not enough people signed up for this session, so it was canceled. So I needed to find another cross training workout.

Well, I found it! I tried the YMCA’s cardio bootcamp class a few times during the winter, but lost interest after awhile. I started going again last week after spin class ended and I definitely am more interested now.

I was so sore after last Tuesday’s class, I skipped Thursday. Today I’m not as sore, perhaps because I was more prepared for what the class held, so I didn’t push myself as hard.

Its a bootcamp-style workeout that changes every time. The two classes I went to had intervals of jogging-type cardio in between intervals of different weight and toning exercises. Wow! After last Tuesday’s class, my abs were sore until Friday!

Tonight, its my legs that are sore. I don’t know if I will run tomorrow or not.

In addition to being a great way of cross training, this class will also get me weight training a bit, something I haven’t done much at all since I started running outside. I don’t know if it was my imagination or not, but I felt a bit stronger in my run last Wednesday! We’ll see what tomorrow holds.
