My favorite spinning teacher had a baby (her first) on July 9th. She was back teaching our spinning class on Monday. As in less than three weeks later!!!
I don't have kids but... how is this possible??? I thought new mommies had to wait six weeks or so before exercising again. Plus I didn't think riding a bike would be, um, comfortable after giving birth.
Anyway, I'm definitely glad to have her back. I tried a new spin teacher while she was gone and it just wasn't the same.
In other news... I ran with the Nike running club again this past weekend - 4 miles in SF (short run only as I had to be at an early afternoon baptism that day) and then another 8 miles in Danville on Sunday. Both runs are about an hour away from where I live so yeah, it's kinda crazy that I spent four hours last weekend just driving but it's worth it for me. It's hard for me to motivate myself to do a long run on my own these days plus it gets warm pretty early where I live. So I actually don't mind the commute. And I get some nice hill work as well:
4 miles in SF
8 miles in Danville
On Monday, I did spinning AND did weights. Yesterday, I tried out this core fusion class at my gym where they combined Yoga and Pilates with a focus on the core. It was a good class that didn't seem too challenging but wow, I could really feel it this morning. Anyway, I'm trying to spend more time at the gym to justify my pricey membership fees. After the core fusion class, I did a quick interval workout at the track.
As for today - it's all about So You Think You Can Dance and Project Runway! :)
