Daily Doses of Sweat

Sister #1 here: I’ve been getting my daily sweat on. Here is my week so far:

Monday I attended RIPPED class. It’s an hour long class that involved hand weights, cardio intervals, some kickboxing thrown in there and ending with core work and stretching. I like this class alot, the instructor is great and I attend with a few friends.

Tuesday was supposed to be a rest day–I had a meeting first thing in the morning and then had a few errands to run. But it was nice and sunny out after a few days of clouds, although a bit chilly. I had just picked up some new warm running tights and had to try them out. I headed out for a run at about 1:00 p.m. Typically I am not a middle of the day runner. I usually run in the morning and eat the same protein bar before every run. This run was after lunch, and not a healthy lunch. I had a side ache and felt icky the whole run. I was trying to run 8:00 miles for 5 miles but struggled and averaged an 8:24 pace–I will do better on my run tomorrow.

Today, Wednesday, I attended RIPPED again. The routine changes every six weeks and I really like the routine we are doing right now. We do bicep curls, triceps, push ups (alot of push ups) lunges, squats, etc. It’s a total body workout and is high energy–FUN!

Those are my daily doses of sweat so far this week. I’m preparing for the 5 mile Turkey Trot that the Sweaty Sisters are doing on Thanksgiving morning–can’t wait to run with my sister again!
