WOD - September 29, 2013

Today was an Orange Theory day (can I get a woo hoo!!).  I took the class this morning with an instructor that I had a couple of weeks ago.  She's great - very dynamic and explanatory in the weight room (which most of the trainers are!) which is very helpful.

Apparently Sundays are nicknamed "Distance Sundays" for a reason.  Today we spent about 27 minutes on the treadmill and she said at the beginning of the class that she hopes the 'Runners' will reach about 3.1 miles in that time period.  {Side note: when you're on the treadmills you're considered either a Walker, Jogger or Runner depending on your fitness level and ability and each have their own criteria to follow}  Yikes - I definitely don't run that fast (I'm a 'Jogger'), so I think I did about 2.8 miles and I was happy with that!

The treadmill was followed by about 5 minutes on the rowing machine.  And then the rest of the time I spent in the weight room.  I had a set of both 12.5 lb and 15 lb dumbbells and I switched back and forth depending on the exercise.  We worked mostly chest, back and biceps with the dumbbells and the SBT bands.  Actually, when I got home my husband said, "Did you do chest? Your pecs look jacked." [And he totally meant that in a non-sexual, complimentary way.  He's so romantic! lol]

Today was a good, solid workout.  When I left I thanked the instructor - I have this thing...I ALWAYS go up and thank the instructor! - and she said, "Great workout today.  I love the facial expressions."  I totally LOL'd!  I am very expressive!  I am told that all.the.time from friends and family.  It's just funny that she picked up on it!  

I'm planning to do the new Melissa Bender workout (Sweaty 2 Sculpted: 10 Minute HIIT Interval Workout) tomorrow so hopefully all goes as planned! :)
