Today I went to work out at a different Y than I normally go to. I found out that a friend of mine just joined and ha been wanting to try a NIA class. My gym doesn't offer NIA, so I agreed to meet her there. I loved the class- it's a dance / tai chi/ mindful movement class that was just so much fun! At the beginning of the class, the teacher asked us to reflect upon the qualities we admire in others. I chose strength, determination, compassion, integrity, and humour.
Afterwards, I hopped on the treadmill and ran c25k w6d3- 25 minutes of running with no walking breaks. I ran the whole thing at 5.0.
I also lifted some weights and spent several minutes stretching. It was a great workout!
As I was walking out the door, I noticed a poster that said "pressure makes diamonds". I thought it was a perfect quote for the day!
