I really enjoyed going to the intervals class last weekend, and decided I wanted to go back today. So, this morning I got up and went to the gym for a 9:00 stretch class followed by a 9:30 intervals class. The stretch class used the stability ball, and that was wonderful. I really enjoyed the class and felt great going into the intervals class.
The intervals class was pretty intense, but a lot of fun. She did a bunch of step moves, and interspersed tabata intervals and some strength work using resistance tubes. I loved the tabata intervals. They were beyond intense, but really fun at the same time. And, I know my triceps are going to be feeling the muscle work tomorrow. All in all, a great morning at the gym.
Then, when I got home, it was time to take Michael to his yoga class. The room was a little warm today, but it wasn't as crowded as last week. I'm guessing since it was such a beautiful day, not as many people wanted to exercise inside. But, it was still a great session. Michael and I both got a really good workout. And, I love doing partner poses with him. I'm not sure why, but I feel really close to Michael when we do yoga together.
So, for the day, I had two and a half hours of exercise. I came home really, really tired. But, I also feel like I accomplished something great. I know I used to exercise two hours a day all the time, but today, it felt great. I love that I am finding a balance between too much and too little. And, I really love that exercise is just starting to feel like part of the day, not something I have to do.
