My quads were BURNING for days after last weekend’s NYC Half marathon. BURNING. This happened during the Miami Half as well. Apparently it has to do with acceleration while running (or this is the conclusion I have come to after doing all my research on the Google).
Despite quads that felt like they were going to fall off me, I still went for a workout this week and oddly, it felt better after Tuesday’s workout. No running (well some), just lots of cross-training (in case you wanted to know: here’s my post on the Classpass blog on getting cross-training into your running plan).
Monday – rest day
Tuesday – 2 workouts: an hour at Uplift with Michelle, then a 45 minute workout with my boyfriend at Throwback Fitness
Wednesday – rest day (okay forced rest day as I just didn’t have time in my schedule)
FitMapped hosted a great event at Westin Grand Central. My sister went to their summer event and loved it so we went. Lots and lots of juice samples! Of my favorite is Suja juice and OatWorks smoothies. A yoga teacher from Mang’oh Yoga lead us through some stretches and meditation. Then a panel of nutrition experts including FitMapped founder, Anita Mirchandani, took questions from the audience about healthy living. Also to top off the night, I won tickets to the fitness episodes of Katie Couric’s talk show.
Friday – rest day
- 45 min outdoor class with Throwback Fitness
- BurnThis challenge: 30 minutes of Body Space Fitness, 30 minutes of CityRow, 30 minutes of barre at Flex Studios
- 50 minute Brooklyn Bodyburn class
Sunday – 50 minute class with Jason Tran at The Fhitting Room then 50 minutes of Brooklyn Bodyburn with Abby.
I seriously had no idea what I was doing. I was straight up exhausted from the day before. Luckily Jason and Abby are just energetic, awesome and hilarious, it kept me going.
Monday – rest day but seriously my abs, back and legs hurt, I think I’ll blame Brooklyn Bodyburn for that….I guess I can blame Throwback Fitness, Body Space Fitness, CityRow, Flexstudios, and The Fhitting Room for that.
What good things happened to you this past week?
