I LOVE my bootcamps, barre, and other fitness classes. They are so different from cycling and running outside–I get a different adrenaline rush from them. Not going to lie…I just feel badass after the classes and they are just plain fun.
However, last week I made an effort to remind myself that cycling and running are important for me. Cycling is important because I have 192 miles to ride in August for the Pan-Mass Challenge. And running is part of a personal challenge I need to tackle. I want to prove to myself that I can run distance again. I realize that sometimes after injuries you can’t, but I think I can–I just need to actually put the time and effort into making sure my body is ready.
I said how I was going to cut back on classes and prioritize running in my last post “I am going to take fewer classes” but I didn’t stick to my guns. I took just as many classes as I usually do! I had “running” on my workout schedule but always decided not to and quickly deleted it from my calendar.
