I’m absolutely in love with the fall fitness classes I’m a part of this semester. Zumba, HIIT, and Cycling. I’ve got friends in each of the classes with me, which makes it so much more fun. Plus, we keep each other motivated not to cop out and skip classes. Totally awesome.
But truth be told, I’m feeling a tad overwhelmed with it all.
Zumba, HIIT, and Cycling meets twice a week each. 6 sesh’s a week. I didn’t think it’d be a big deal when I jumped into the fitness classes, but I’m doing two-a-days 4 times a week in order to get my runs in. And that makes me tirrrrrred!
So on the mornings that I don’t have class, I’m hitting snooze instead of hitting the trails. That, and spending the evening relaxing with Weez and Cabo has gone by the wayside. We don’t have the chill evenings we used to.
The plus side, is that I am healthy, injury-free, and able to move my body everyday. I’m thankful for that. Life is pretty good.
But I’ve come to the realization that it’s just too much for me, and I think I need to dial it back.
I’m bummed that I can’t keep up the pace anymore. I want to be going to each class. I want to be running every free morning of the week.
How the heck do people workout 8+ days a week?? How the heck do working parents find time to workout and take care of everything else? You guys are rock stars. Tell me your secrets. Coffee? Sacrificing sleep? Just getting used to it and sucking it up?
PS. It was so brisk and lovely on my run this morning… It’s 37*F here, people. 37 degrees! I loved every runny nosed, cold handed, I-can-see-my-breathe moment of it.
How do you like to balance your workout schedule with your normal life?
Are you a coffee drinker?
If you could take any fitness class for a year, what would it be?
