The best part of waking up….
…..is having an early morning cross training class! Oh, and this:
Before we get to today’s workout let us first go over last nights dinner.
Some nights just call for grilled cheese and tomato soup. There is a fancy cheese shop here in Anchorage where we like to try out new cheeses and then go home and make fancy-schmancy grilled cheese sandwiches. We have failed to make it over there but we did, however, find a blue marbled white cheddar cheese while at the store last weekend and we knew we had to try it out. It was a winner!! I may have found my new favorite cheese and I am contemplating what I am going to use it for next.
We also had a large side salad which was great because I have been needing some veggies lately:
Today’s cross training class was full — lots of new people which is always a good thing (it ensures that they will continue to hold the class)! We warmed up with 300 jump ropes (I love jump roping, by the way) and then spent the rest of the hour completing 3 separate circuits. The first circuit was 3 round, 15 of each of about 5 different exercises. One of them was a burpee + a kettle bell swing which I thought was a pretty fun way to combine the 2 exercises. After we completed that circuit we did 6 rounds of 45 seconds of different burpee variations (such as 1-arm burpees, traveling burpees, etc). Our last circuit was 3 rounds, 15 of each of another 5 or so exercises. The class was fast paced and never dull which is definitely what I need to keep me motivated.
It was an awesome workout!
Tomorrow I am going to be adding a few more miles to my January total (finally!). I plan on running at least 4 miles on the treadmill but I am hoping that I will have the desire to do more once I am there. We’ll just have to wait and see.
I hope you guys are having a great weekend. Keep on keeping on!
