Ever since the marathon was called off all I can think about is how I'm going to get into kick a$$ shape in 6 weeks before I start training again.
I headed off to spin class this morning and got my morning butt whooping. Loved every second!
I figure I'll do 2 spinning classes in one day once a week to try and get 2 hours of cardio in to simulate long runs (Thanks Yo Mamma Runs for this tip). I know this seems crazy but.........
You have to remember on my long runs I was running for 3 hours sometimes with my heart rate between 120 and 170. So it's really hard to keep up with if I can't run.
On the days I don't do 2 doing classes I'll show up an hour early and do the elliptical for an hour before class starts!
I'm going to head to the sports store today and buy a medicine ball and yoga ball so I can get my core in check. I love doing crunches on the yoga ball. Ohhhh.......It's burns like a mother!!!
It's such an awesome workout. and the medicine ball too. It really works the obliques!!!
Also planning to walk 3 miles in the mornings with my hubby and the kids to the park. Also a great steady calorie burner!
