I don't get it

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! :)

You can do things, they just tell you to take it easy. But since she was (I assume, since she's an instructor) in fabulous condition beforehand I'm sure that plays a part. And about the "area" LOL some of us are fortunate not to rip or tear.

They usually only tell you not to work out for 6 wks after a c-section.

Hey, I'm glad there's someone else who's not afraid to admit to watching SYTYCD! I love that show! Joshua's got some serious junk in his trunk, but he can move..

Don't know if you'll get this in time, but I'm going to wear the pink and orange Danskin outfit and I'm starting in wave 5 (5:55 start). I'm hoping for a 4:15 pace but due to the hills would be thrilled with anything under 4:30. Hope to see you!!!
