This morning my alarm went off at the ungodly hour of 5:20. I actually considered turning it off and just skipping the spin class. But I promised the lady I was filling in for that I would teach them, so I got up and was out the door by 5:35. The class started at 5:45. Luckily I had 4 people show up. I was pretty pumped because not many people will show up at 5:45 IN THE MORNING for a spin class. I, thought, I had a pretty good class. I got my sweat on and everyone seemed pretty happy and tired when the 30 minutes was up.
After the class, I changed into my running shorts and hopped on the treadmill for the 2 miles I was suppose to run yesterday. I squeaked out the 2 miles in 17:38 (I believe). I actually felt really strong during these two miles and was even able to pull off an 8 minute/mile pace at the end. Loved it.
On my lunch break I'll do the 30-minute abs class and then take the rest of the day off to rest.
Yesterday I had to teach a 45-minute spin class. It started at 6. When I got there, there wasn't a whole lot of people but by the time 6 rolled around, I had 8 people. My only problem with yesterday's class was my CD wasn't long enough. I hadn't thought the whole class out and we had 10 minutes to kill, so instead of just trying to make stuff up, I asked for request from them. It gave them a chance to redo something they really liked and everyone left happy and sweaty. I was pretty pumped up myself.
I have two more classes to teach this week and on top of that 15 more miles to run. I'm a little scared looking at my training schedule but pretty excited and thinking that if I feel alright after Saturday's 8 mile run, I might just keep the two early morning spin classes in my rotation. It might an early morning wake-up call but I do better on my runs in the morning than I do in the afternoon, so I really need to start doing it more.
As for the rest of my week, my schedule and training looks a little like this:
Monday - Taught 45 minute spin class.
Tuesday - Taught 30 minute spin class/ran 2 miles in 17:38/abs class
Wednesday - 5 mile run (3 at 7:52 pace)/teach 45 minute spin class
Thursday - 2 mile run/abs class
Friday - Teach 30 minute spin class
Saturday - 8 miles at a 9:23 pace
Wow, oh wow, what a busy week. I actually love it.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday.
