Happy Fri-Yay!! Double cheers as I return from my unplanned hiatus – in that time I renewed my PMP certification, worked worked worked, and visited New York and Florida. I have loads to share and they are queued for next week 🙂 Thanks to everyone who reached out to make sure I was okay, in hindsight I should have written a quick catch up post last month. Today I am linking up with Mar, Courtney, and Cynthia and sharing my Fitness Lately (missed this linkup…it has been months).
1. Running and Running
I have kept up with my running workouts and will run my first race of the year this Sunday…SAY WHAT?! I will be running Pacers’ St. Pats 5K and 10K Double. I will be using it as a training run/fitness test and next week I will be in Jacksonville for the Gate River Run 15K. It will be nice to run the course without sleet (last year’s recap).
I was suppose to run two DCRR races (free for members) in January and February, but I overslept for the New Years 5K and arrived too early for the Langley 8K… oops!
2. Back on ClassPass
I rejoined ClassPass once I learned Barre3 was opening a studio in my neighborhood (I dropped my YMCA membership). I’m excited to alternate those classes with CorePower Yoga. I was also happy to see Mint and Gold’s Gym offered “Gym Time” on ClassPass – I could use one of their treadmills in case of inclement or scorching weather.
I’ve been going to cycling classes the past couple of months – including a free SoulCycle class (my second) with my friend Caitlin and Flywheel classes with my friend Emily. Team SoulCycle vs. Team FlyWheel? I would have to say the latter – I like their workouts better and their use of a Torq board. Power + Distance PRs this past weekend!
4. Gear and Gadgets
Christmas brought some Amazon credit, so the Forerunner 235 became mine last weekend! What a beauty. I’ve been pretty bad with my watch shots, so you’ll see many more in the future. Bluetooth syncing + wrist heart rate monitor….yes please.
5. Fitbit Challenge
Inspired by my friend Rach, I would like to hit at least 10,000 steps everyday for the month of March. There were a couple of months in which I missed my step goal twice, so this would be a nice challenge for myself. I also purchased an extra charger because there were days when my battery died at work. My daytime steps weren’t counted – nooo!
Do you stock up on shoes when there is a good deal?
What watch do you use?
