Relax, I Have a Plan
Friday, May 24, 2013
There are three gyms I can reasonably get to depending on the day and time. One is close to my house, one is halfway to my office, and one is close to my office. I spent yesterday desperately avoiding real work and so I looked up the class schedules for all three gyms and organized them into a pretty little color-coded chart of what classes I can take.
Here's the primary plan:
Monday, 6AM - Body Pump
Tuesday, 6AM - Run
Wednesday, 6AM - Xtreme
Thursday - Easy Run + Pilates Mat
Friday, 6AM - Body Combat
Saturday - Longer Run
Sunday - Rest Day
I prefer exercising in the mornings and getting it over with. However, if for some reason I can't make that happen, I have backup plans for afternoon classes.
Monday I can take either Body Conditioning or Body Flow.
Tuesday I can take Kickboxing, Step, "Upper Body Blast", Pilates Fundamentals, or H2O Turbo. (I'm very intrigued by UBB and H20 Turbo, so I'll have to check them out!)
Wednesday I can take Body Pump, Conditioning, or Body Attack.
Thursday I can take Step, Kickboxing, Pilates Mat, or Guts & Butts.
And on the weekends I can take Kickboxing, Body Pump, Step, or HIIT.
I'm going to start taking as many of these classes as I can so I learn which ones I like (or hate but think are good for me) and which ones I can strike from the list. I'm afraid too many options will make it easy to do none of them, so I'd like to hone this down to a specific set of weekly must-haves.
I really want to start incorporating both body pump and Pilates. I'll do cardio all day long, but the ST and the stretching bits are where I really need the help.
I'm going to start with a 4 mile run tomorrow and HIIT on Sunday and then start with the morning classes.
BRING IT ON!
