Running, spin and a trash talking Garmin!

Yesterday was great!  Even though when I got out of work I had to rushed around to try and get my 4 miles in before my spin class….needless to say…that just did not happen!
Buuuuuuuttttttt, I had just enough time to get in 2 miles before class and I am actually really happy with that!  I was running inside so I had to keep track of my own splits but….they were good, at least I think so! 
Mile 1: 8:38, Mile 2: 9:31 (slowed down to talk to a friend I ran into <–HA!  I didn't really run into her though just next to).  I had enough time to stretch out the legs and hips before hopping on a bike and warming up!

Worst pic ever!  Class was over, I had to do something! 😉
During spin I worked up a much bigger sweat than last week but still wasn’t really loving the class itself.  The workout I love love love!!!  I am going to try a spin class at another gym and see how that works out for me.  I hope its just the environment I don’t like!  45 minutes and a pint of sweat later, I was heading back to finish my 4 miles for the day! 
After my 3rd mile…Nikia’s 4th!
The first one I did, Nikia was running too so I stuck with her for a 10:40 split and then I relaxed and let my pace pick up a little.  Mile 4 ended at 8:28!!  I felt awesome too!  I wasn’t worn out or feel like I needed to lie down and not move for 30 minutes!  That means I was successful…at least to me it does!
I stretched out a little, seriously just a little, I need to get better at that.  Then headed home.  By the time I was at the house I was starving!!!!  I started making K and I turkey burgers and broccoli when BOOM!  My Garmin started talking shit!
Are you freakin’ KIDDING ME?!?!
Seriously, I just ran 4 miles did a 45 minute spin class and you are going to tell me to MOVE!  I don’t think so!!  I took it off and haven’t put it back on yet!
Today is a rest day for me so I am being a good girl and going to a Piloxing class??  Don’t know what it is or what they do so heck why not!!??  I am loving this cross training! 
I will try to do better on the pics today with this class, I kind of get into the working out part and forget that sharing is caring!
This week:
Sunday: Foam Roll
Monday: 4 miles done and 45 minutes spin
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: 3 miles race pace
Thursday: Strength Training

Do you have an app/watch other health related item that talks crap to you?
Have you ever taken piloxing?
What did you have for dinner last night?

  1. Jeeze running and spinning in one day just sounds exhausting. I went to the gym yesterday morning and did an hour of bootcamp strength work and then ran in the evening and I could really tell my body was tired. It just felt hard to keep to my normal paces. But all good training I suppose!
    Dinner last night was a really tasty homemade slow cooked sweet potato soup. So good.
