Training Day: Jan 29th-Feb 4th

I’m so happy to report my workouts have gone from non-existent to sporadic to dare I say regularly scheduled! Holla! Here is this week’s success story…

Thursday: Flow @ Sangha

Last week was really great for my yoga practice, I made it to 4 classes and really started to get into a “flow” shall we speak. Thursday night’s class however was definitely a struggle. It was just one of those classes where I spent half the time just feeling entirely unbalanced and the other half of the time thinking about how unbalanced I was. I was frustrated but I just kept telling myself that if I just push through I’ll feel so much better and I really did. Everyone has those classes, Thursday was just mine.

Friday: Spinning @ Cyclepath

Maria and I made it to our weekly spin class date about 15 minutes early and had a really awesome chat with the owners. Little did we know the freezing cold temperatures kept everyone else away that night so we essentially got an hour long private class. They even played Bastille… you guys know how strongly I feel about that band, I was in heaven! Thanks so much to Ian and Kara for taking the time to help us sweat it out also thank you for not making us do push ups πŸ™‚

Saturday: Slow Massage Flow @ Sangha

This was the first time I took this style of class which is described as being mellow, gentle and meditative. I was really excited about it because I love the instructor and I thought it’d be a great way to relax for an hour while still doing something good for myself. I absolutely loved the style of class and I’m so glad I went but I am hesitant about just how crowded it was. The studio is small and the weekend classes seem to be quite popular (such a great problem for them to have in my opinion) but I think I prefer my week day classes with a little bit more space.

Sunday: Rest

Aka Super Bowl watching and chili eating.

Monday: Rest

We did go bowling that night which was a blast but I’m not entirely sure that I exuded a lot of physical energy getting all of those strikes πŸ˜‰

Tuesday: Snowboarding

I took a random vacation day to finally escape up to the mountains for a day on the slopes. It was bitterly cold but the blue skies and sun shining were only slightly less attractive than the huge piles of untouched powder. There were no lift lines, no jam ups on the trails and absolutely no limit to how truly sore I could make myself in one day. It was perfect. We spent most of the afternoon in the glades and also made a few casual pit stops at the Castlerock Pub… because why not?

Wednesday: Sore

So sore, just so unbelievably sore. I had really high hopes of going to my favorite yoga class of the week around lunch time but I just couldn’t have imagined that would have been very fun in my condition. Walking up the stairs to get to my evening class last night was the worst kind of torture. Oh well, it was worth it πŸ™‚

On to this week’s plan…

Thursday: 30 minutes of Yoga at home

Friday: Spin Class @ Cyclepath

Saturday: Snowboarding with the family for the birthday!

Sunday: Rest

Monday: Flow Yoga @ Sangha

Tuesday: Spin Class @ Cyclepath

Wednesday: Flow Yoga @ Sangha

I’m really happy with how these last two weeks have gone fitness wise, they aren’t perfect but they are so much better and it’s amazing how great I feel just being more consistent. Hope you are having a lovely Thursday!

How is your fitness routine going?

Bowling: Exercise or not?

    • I really like Sangha! I mean you can’t beat $39 for a monthly membership (suggested donation is $10 per class). They’ll be the first one’s to tell you it’s a small studio so it might not be for everyone but besides this last Saturday class I really haven’t found it to be an issue. Every instructor I’ve come across is so genuine and helpful. I’ve taken classes at BTV Yoga before and thought they were good but I feel much more comfortable at Sangha which for my lack of skill is important. I’d suggest trying out one of the lunchtime classes to try and fit into your busy schedule! Caitlin’s got a great one on Monday and I LOVE Paige’s Wednesday noon class πŸ™‚ Sorry for the novel haha

      • No, this is great info! It looks like some of their early evening classes could fit my schedule too. I think I’ll have to go check them out, cause that monthly membership price is insane, and I LOVE their philosophy!
