April’s Accomplishments

I’ve been blogging about my monthly fitness regimen, which you can check out: (January | February | March). In February I mentioned that I wanted to up  my workouts to 4x per week in March. Unfortuch I didn’t make that goal.

Do you think I made it this month? Well — check out below and see for yourselves how I did!

April 4 – 10
Mon: Boot Camp (6:45am – 7:30am). As I mentioned in my previous monthly posts I really don’t like the instructor that teaches this class. But thankfully for me, my favorite teacher was the substitute for this class! Wahhhhooooo. I sweat like a beast when she’s teaching us. I love it.
Tues: Boot Camp (5:15pm – 6:15pm). Again, fav teacher in this class. 2nd day in a row of Boot Camp. <3’s it.
Wed: Strength (5:15pm – 6:00pm). This class is always fun as she has stations set up and the class literally flies by.
Thurs: Learn To Run (5:00pm – 6:00pm) I did this class so I could take a break from spin class as it’s just incredibly brutal and makes me want to die when I’m on the bike. We ended up doing a loop around the Uni and did 90 seconds running/jogging, then 2 minutes of walking. It went well! I’ll be going again.

April 11 – 17
Mon:Boot Camp (6:45am – 7:30am) I left early because they ended up running around in a circle upstairs (Remember I posted about this before?) so I jumped on the treadmill and did a slow 11:10 minute mile. lol
Tues: Boot Camp (5:15pm – 6:15pm) Wow. An hour Boot Camp is a lot longer than a 45 minute one. Still love this class. Still makes me sweat like a beast.
Strength (5:15pm – 6:00pm) …. I don’t remember what we did?
Thurs: Learn To Run (5:00pm – 6:00pm) We did a 2 minute run, 2 minute walk for about 4.0k. Pretty wicked.

April 18 – 24
Mon: Boot Camp (6:45am – 7:30am) Always tired in this morning class, but it pumps me up for the rest of the day!
Tues: Learn To Run (5:00pm – 6:00pm) Ran for 3 minutes, walked for 1. Upped out mileage to 4.5k. Oh I was dead by the end of it, but decided since the Boyf wasn’t done at the gym I’d hope on the treadmill for another 2.0 miles (3.8k!!!!!). I blogged about that, too.
Wed: Strength (5:15pm – 6:00pm). Love this class, always works my most hated exercise  – Lunges/Squats and weights. Ugh, brutal but it’s worth it.
Thurs: Learn To Run (5:00pm – 6:00pm) 3 minutes on, 2 minutes off. Pleasant!

April 25 – 30
Mon: My freaking ALARM didn’t go off this morning. Meaning I was scared to death I wasn’t going to make my 4x a week goal this month!
Learn To Run (5:00pm – 6:00pm) We ended up doing 4.0km running 4 minutes on, 2 minutes off. I thought this class was going to be the end of me, today. It was SO &*^ difficult! The end of our run ended in an uphill and instead of walking after the 4 minute run, we all decided to run that extra minute. It killed me going against the wind, in the cold weather and ugh. Just brutal.
Wed: Strength (5:15pm – 6:00pm) I really didn’t want to go to this class because I was running on latte’s and 3 hours of sleep. I needed to go because how else would I reach my goal of 4x a week if I didn’t end up going this day? Tired workout, but worth it.
Thurs: Learn To Run (5:00pm – 6:00pm) 4 minutes on, 2 minutes walking. Ran with my buddy again and it was fantastic! The run literally flew by!!!!
Fri: Boot Camp (6:45am – 7:30am) I decided to go today and just get the class over with. Plus it was with my favorite instructor filling in for another one. I sweat in the weirdest places, when she teaches.

Success! I did it! I DID IT! I made it 4x a month, especially since the last week started off awful! YAY! Now I can sleep in for a few days and eat junk! HAHAHA.

  1. Congratulations on meeting your fitness goals!!!! That’s awesome. :)

    I need to take some inspiration from you & get my butt to the gym more often. I pay every month & even though the fee isn’t too high ($17) it’s still money owed, for something I’m barely using. Now that spring is here, I’ll get out hiking/walking/biking more. Gym’s have never been my thing. Maybe they never will be!
