Twelve Days of Fitness Blog Challenge: Day Eight

Happy New Year! I don't know about you, but I can't believe that it is 2014 already.  Today is first day of the Twelve Days of Fitness Blog Challenge for 2014. To learn more about the challenge view the initial post HERE>> or join our group by clicking HERE>>

My Day Eight Workout:

I started 2014 out by heading to the gym to take cardio kickboxing at 8:30 AM.  For some reason the gym decided to hold all of its classes through noon, but close at 6 PM tonight. Personally, I'd think it would make more sense to open late on New Year's Day, but guess that's just me.  Unfortunately, I got caught up on the phone before leaving and ended up making it to the gym at 8:40 AM. When I got there, no one was kickboxing.  I did see the Yoga instructor who teaches after the cardio class and chatted with her. She said no one showed up.  So I decided to get in a 3 mile run on the treadmill and do a little weight training before Yoga.

I really love this Yoga instructor because she has us practice the same poses for 4 weeks and gives us a copy so we can work on them at home.  Here's our latest sequence:

We have been practicing Warrior I, II, and II, tree pose, triangle, reverse triangle, and side planks as part of this month's sequence.

I didn't feel tired when I went to the gym, but when I got back all my 2013-2014 celebrating got to me and I had to take a little cat nap.  Now that I'm rested, I'm ready to tackle some of my own New Year's Resolutions like cleaning up and unpacking after the holidays.  All I have to do is find a good playlist so it doesn't seem as boring!

  1. That's an awesome idea if giving participants copy of the yoga poses. I love the triangle pose as well as the pigeon and double cow pose. Looking forward to yoga this Sunday. This body needs a good stretch after this challenge:-). Keep up the great work.

    1. Thanks :) I love pigeon! That's one of my favorites. Glad you have a good yoga class planned for yourself.

  2. Bummer dude, and I agree with you that it does make more sense to open later on NYD. Great job with the 3 miles, keep up the fantastic work! :)

    1. Yea I love this instructor too. I have some new classes of my own starting up later this month so I want to get in all my time as a student when I can! It feels SO good to run after being off that ankle for 3 weeks - the pool was getting so dang boring. Although, now I finally have a good swim suit and cap for it :)
