Return of the kickboxing

Saturday, March 16, 2013

I suggested that hubby go with me to cardio kickboxing tonight. He agreed. So rather than sitting around "spending time together" we worked out together. It was fun. I totally schooled him on upper body (arms) weights. It was pretty awesome. The instructor made us switch because I had 8# and he had 5#. I could have kept going with the 8s. He struggled with the 8s. I switched back with him so he could do a few of the moves. When we did shoulders I used 3# so he could use the 5#. My legs feel wobbly but I felt really good after it was done. The best part was my foot didn't really bother me. We were going to do a kicking combo that requires pivoting, that did hurt my foot, but since there were a lot of newbies there, we did a kick and punch combo instead that went over much better. If I am still able to move tomorrow I am going to give the track a little love and see about getting back on that training so I can "run" my 5k.

I am resigned to the fact that I will not get an "A" in the class I am taking this quarter. I have been taking classes for 2 years and have a 4.0 thus far. I was really bummed about not keeping it going, and it does still bother me a bit, but it is what it is and I really have done the best I can in this class. I feel the expectations of the instructor are a tad unreasonable, but like I said, it is what it is. I can only change how I deal with it, and right now that means letting it go. Not having a perfect 4.0 doesn't make my degree any less worthwhile.

I realized tonight that we have plans for St. Patrick's Day. We are going with some friends for Chinese food. Yup, makes perfect sense!

Anyway, off to bed so I can get up and work towards my goals tomorrow.

    Chinese food?! On St. Patrick's day?! The Irish blood in me is offended! (Just kidding!) I mean, even the IRISH eat corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and soda bread on St. Paddy's (not true, corned beef is a rarity in Ireland).

Either way I hope you enjoy yourself this weekend! emoticon

I wish I could get MY hubby to do something other than walk with me.

Workout out as a couple is so fun! Hubby, youngest son and I went to the park and around the pond today. It was great!
