Wednesday I forced myself out of the door and to the studio where I used to do zumba to do my first Insanity class. Last April I got the DVDs and did them for 2, or 3, weeks. I enjoyed the DVDs, but trying to follow the program completely (6 days a week) and continue running 5 days a week was too much for me. Anyway, I was really nervous about doing Insanity in a class full of other people. And I was really nervous about going back to the studio where I hadn't been since August (and before that since April). I know it's silly, but the studio is pretty small and everyone knows everyone. I have never been a people person, so I don't know anyone, I used to be a familiar face, but I doubt even one person besides the instructor (who is a huge people person) remembered my name.
Anyway, I went. I enjoyed it. I would like to go back. And I didn't think the moves were hard or something I couldn't do, I was definitely tired by the end, but nothing I couldn't do. While we were doing one of the jumps, the Insanity instructor (different than the zumba instructor) landed wrong on a bad knee and hurt herself badly. She had to be practically carried out. Thankfully, one of the regulars took over the class and we finished it. But now I don't know if the Insanity class will continue. Just when I start something . . . Anyway, I suppose I could go to TRX, I did that once and liked it too. (Same studio)
Yesterday I woke up fine, but as the day went on, my shoulders and back got sore. By last night I was having a hard time getting off the couch. Overnight, I woke up every time I moved (I move a lot in my sleep, didn't know this) and everytime I moved I would say "Owwww!" and moan. Yes, I am that sore. I knew that my upper body was not that "in shape" but I am really surprised at how sore my legs, especially my calves, are. I think this means that I need to do this more often.
Yesterday I was planning on doing a short, easy 4 mile run. I got home and was dressed and trying to get out the door, but my stupid phone wouldn't work properly. I use it to track my runs (mapmyfitness.com) and to listen to an audiobook or music. It wouldn't set up. I spent at least 15 (maybe 20) min waiting for everything to load. It was 10 min to 4 when I finally was headed out the door when Chris said, "don't forget our tax appt at 4:30." Ugh! No way I would get done in 30 min. I was really, really annoyed about it. This means I will be a few miles short of 25 miles this week. Ugh!
Today is 6 miles instead of 5 because of yesterday's missed run. Tomorrow is most likely 6 again (again because of yesterday). And I'm thinking Sunday will be 7 or 8, even though that is really too many for me in a weekend, I feel like I need to push myself to get as many as I can. Next weekend I am going to Long Beach, WA with my extended family and am a little worried about getting all my running in while I'm there.
