Happy Sunday to you. I was excited to get out of bed today because I had a date with my darling friend Kelly. We went to Athleta for another free class! Today was BootCamp with Brighton and it rocked my world. I had never tried a boot camp class before but within 10 minutes, I decided that I love it for the following reasons:
-It is done outdoors (fresh air ahhh)
-The moves are easy to do & you can feel them working (squats, burpees, push ups, etc)
-You can make each move harder or easier as needed (15 or 20 lb “sandbells”, you can run faster/slower, squat faster/slower, etc)
-It will help you build muscle & seems like a GREAT addition to marathon training
After the class, the cool gals at Athleta were kind enough to let us shop before they were even open. Remember that gift card I told you about yesterday?? Just wanted to reassure you that I had NO problem spending it (in about 20 seconds) 😉
I got an adorable pair of running capris, a running skirt, and finally got a hydration belt! When I got home, I modeled the belt for Lali and even demonstrated how I would look running with it on. (How he puts up with my post-workout energy is beyond me!)
spending my gift card my amazing shopping spree, Kelly and I headed over to Jane for some seriously good coffee and conversation.
The rest of the day I will get some chores done, study, stretch, and lounge around. I hope you are having a pleasant day!
