March Madness

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday and more importantly, Happy March Madness. I’m a little bit obsessed, and I’m pretty excited to watch and follow along with a lot of games these next few weeks.

Do you participate in any March Madness pools? I’m in a few, two with my company, one with my church in MN, and one with Denver friends. I’m really excited to see how these next few weeks play out!

March-madness

2015 Final Four in Indianapolis

I wanted to chat with you about my current workout regime. I think I’ve told you this, but I’m doing one month unlimited at Fierce 45. They are having a Mega March Challenge with a bingo card to complete as many items as you can, and to complete 21 classes in the month. Since I’m still doing OrangeTheory Fitness and some hiking and skiing, I won’t get to 21 classes. But I’ve enjoyed taking Fierce 45 classes all month. I’m taking about 2 classes a week right now.

OrangeTheory Fitness is my favorite workout class. I always get the best (and sweatiest) workout!

These days, my workout schedule has been three work days and two weekend days. I switched to this schedule in January because I was traveling a lot for work and working long hours. I have a really hard time getting up to work out when I’m in a hotel. The combination of late Sunday travel, the comfy bed, the blackout curtains, and a different routine make it hard to work out in the mornings. Since I usually landed late on Sunday, I decided that Monday would be on off day to sleep in. Then I would pick one other day to sleep in a little bit longer. For the past few months, this routine has really worked for me.

With all the classes I’ve been taking, I haven’t been running or swimming too much. There are a few reasons for this, a bit of irritation in my left leg. I think a lot of it is because of alignment from sitting so much. I’ve been trying to stretch and foam roll a lot, and I really think all the reminders about doing exercises in certain alignments at #Fierce45 have helped! I want to get back into swimming and running once March is over.

What is your workout schedule? Do you plan  your workouts?

Also, I’m considering doing ClassPass in April/May. Have you done it before? It seems like a great option in Denver and it has a few of my favorite studios on it.

    I am a mom so I totally get the waking up struggle. I like to savor every min! I work out at home now, and follow the calendar for whatever program I use. I use it when I travel too, since I stream all my workouts, which is awesome! I also play water polo once a week (fellow pool lover!!)
