In Workout Week posts I will tell you everything about my last week’s workouts.
Monday was BodyPump day as always. The day began really bad unfortunately. Sunday night I felt kind of nauseous and weird in my stomach. I thought that a good night sleep will help but it didn’t. I got up in the middle of the night and to be polite, the only thing I will tell you is that food poisoning had hit me hard. In the morning I felt better but still tired and a little weak. I had an important presentation to do and that went well.
By BodyPump time at 8 PM I was more tired than normally. But a good workout fixes a lot of things! We did program no 85. In chest track Maris encouraged and motivated us so much that in the end I increased my weights fro 5+5 kg to 6+6 kg. It felt good! Back track unfortunately didn’t play so in the end we did 2 tracks for abs. During the workout I thought why are the tracks so familiar. Then I realised that program 85 was the first BodyPump I ever did in June (and only went there once, then summer break came in my local club). I knew NOTHING about technique then, god I must have done everything wrong! Maris also told us that if anyone is going to Tartu Novembrijooks (and I am) on Saturday, we should start taking things easier from Tuesday.
Tuesday: strip aerobics. New routine, it was fun as always.
Wednesday: BodyPump. Program no 85 again. I had the same weights as last time and some muscles on my body were actually a little sore from Monday. My instructor asked me if adding weights in Monday’s chest track helped and they obviously did. Then she also mentioned not to overdo it since I have to race on Saturday. She somehow knew I’ll me taking part in Tartu Novembrijooks 🙂
On Thursday I took it easier and went to functional workout. It’s meant to work on the muscles you need in everyday life, a la when you have to move upstairs, lift something etc. It might sound easy but I’ve previously been sore from it. A nice change.
Friday was official rest day before the race on Saturday. I did some walking in the morning and during the day, all together a little over 2 hours of walking and almost 15 000 steps.
Saturday was my 5K race day. You can check my post all about that race here. I also walked to the place where the race took place, in total about 45 minutes.
On Sunday I decided to give Zumba with Kristi another try. I have been in her Zumba class once before and I didn’t really like it that time… This time I LOVED it! I knew only one song from before but the choreography was different. I messed up a thousand times but it was still fun 🙂 AND Kristi had a Christmas song as cool down and stretching track. The first Christmas song I listened to this year…
3 hours of walking
2 hours of dancing
3 hours of muscle workout
32 minutes of running
An OK week. I have been feeling weird, not like myself for the whole week both workout and foodwise… Need to figure out what’s going on. Maybe the school stress is getting to me? I’m also pressured about hitting my goal weight by the end of the year. I haven’t weighed myself in a week and won’t weigh myself for another 2 weeks because I’m too obsessed with the number on the scales. But if I have not lost weight after these 3 weeks… I will be upset.
