Continuing on my journey through the Classpass – I went to Body Space Fitness again last night. I took the Body Camp class last time and was offered a free class after attending the first so I took Training for Warriors. It utilized the treadmill for circuits – twenty seconds on, arm & abs floor workout, 25 seconds on, floor workout, 30 seconds on. Each circuit had a different type of floor workout each time. The treadmill was also set to an incline of 8 with a speed of 8.5 (or 8.5 for both? I don’t remember). I was super exhausted after class but the hour long class went by fast. Loved that I met some cool Classtivity folks in class too!
Today I took an Afterburn/Strength class at As One Effect (also on the Classtivity Classpass). I actually couldn’t find a description of the class online but still wanted to try it. Turns out it’s their cardio day (oh no). It was another circuit style workout – where 40 minutes or so was dedicated to cardio then strength. The cardio circuits utilized the stairclimber, jump ropes, cycling machines and a climbing ladder. It looked scary to use but it was fun (and really worked the backside – ouch).
Sunday afternoon’s Pure Barre class actually had a lot of students – almost every spot at the barre was taken. The nice thing about As One Effect and Body Space Camp is that it really did have a fun team vibe to it.
I’m really glad the BSF utilized the treadmills for class yesterday because I’m having the hardest time getting myself on one at the gym. I’m doing a 10K this Saturday and I haven’t done much running since the tendonitis hit weeks ago. I haven’t had any pain during my short sprints but I guess a 10K is still a substantial distance to prep for. I’m just planning on taking it easy on Saturday and just running for feel. Hoping to get a Barry’s Bootcamp workout in before then too!
I have four weeks to go to the Miami Half. I really was hoping for this to be a PR attempt but 4 weeks of training probably won’t be enough (although this is a FLAT course so maybe).
