October was a hard month to say goodbye to, as it was quite an exciting month for me. But I am welcoming November with open arms and ready for the challenges it holds for me.
First off let’s recap October:
♦ Kickboxing classes attended = 1
♦ Yoga classes attended = 4
♦ J. Alabama boot camp sessions attended = 4
♦ Marathons ran = 1 🙂
My total running mileage for October was 74 miles
Honestly, my one and only goal for October was to run a marathon. So everything on top of that was like extra credit! I’m sitting happy with October’s goals.
November Goals (a bit different than October – I’m healing my foot & I will be traveling for 2 weeks out of the month)
Each number represents the number of workouts that I strive to accomplish by the end of November.. so here goes….
10: 10 miles run per week (only if the foots says YEAHH!!)
9: Ab work outs
8: Manly push-ups a day
7: J. Alabama Bootcamp weight training sessions
6: 30 day Shred work-outs
5: Fight Fit Kickboxing classes
4: Weekend Cruiser bike rides
3: 5:30 am spin classes
1: 5k Race – Gobble Wobble 5k (Denver, CO)
I think this November number challenge will be hard, but I like to set goals that make me work at them. So I welcome the challenge as way to switch up my work out routine.
I started off November with a bang by attending my first Fight Fit Class! What What?!
Check it… these
The lovely people at Treasure Valley Fitness & Thrown Down of Idaho invited me to test out their facilities.
I’ve been searching high and low for a kickboxing class that involves more than punching the air. And well friends, I’m happy to report that the search is over.
Last night I took part in the 60 minute high intensity, cardio & core lovin’, bag punching, sweating up a storm, bootcamp style and owww my abs really hurt, Fight Fit Class.
The class was split into two parts.
Part One: Partner Sparring
Yes, you read that right. I was given gloves and all free reign to kick and punch my partner’s padding. I think I felt the burn even more when I was the one being sparred at. Either way this was exhilarating.
Part two: Bag Time
We did a lovely combo of punch & kicks, mixed in with a crazy ab routine all on the punching bag.
Okay, so I felt a little like this toward the end of the workout.
I wasn’t crying tears of sadness, more like tears of joy in the fact that I did not lose my lunch while doing said workout.
No joke, I at one point realized I had pushed my workout into high gear and there was no stopping The Linz!
I was nervous to bust out of my comfort zone at my regular gym. But kickboxing has been a workout that has tempted me for as long as I can remember. So knowing that this gym offers the exact type of kickboxing that I am looking for is making me even more giddy!
So far so good! I left the Fight Fit class on an exercise high. And I’m so ready to try it out again! Because who wouldn’t want to take their days aggression out on a real punching bag as opposed to the air. Am I right?
Well I think I may have met my match… a 70 pound leather balloon-ish thing.
