I suck at cross training. I love to run, but I’m not a big fan of much else. I don’t own a bike (although we may change that in the spring), I don’t belong to a gym, and I don’t currently have a good spot in my house to do a video. So, I’ve been running five days a week. And I’ve been getting burned out. It seems that four days a week is a much better fit for me.
Shoo and I started taking our exercise class again today. I LOVE this class (and I’ve never enjoyed classes much). I discovered that my fitness level is better even than it was in the fall while I was training for a marathon. Apparently the hill running and speed workouts are making a difference. I was able to do the most difficult version of every move today and, while I felt like I got a workout, I never felt like I couldn’t complete a set or whatever. This class meets for 8 of the next 9 weeks, but then I’m going to have to find something new.
We are going to be buying a flat screen tv soon, so the current living room tv will move to the basement family room. This will allow me to workout in the basement, as our current basement tv is so old I can’t hook up a DVD player. Really. And the treadmill is in front of the tv in the basement bedroom.
So, that was a long way of asking, “What are your favorite workout videos?” I know Jillian is a favorite, but I’d be interested in some older stuff that I could potentially get from the library to try before I buy…
11 miles planned tomorrow, hopefully before the snow starts, or I’ll be doing 11 very boring miles on the treadmill.
