I started Tuesday 5/24 off with yoga. This is when I usually run for about 30 minutes before class. But on Tuesday I skipped the run. I didn't even wear my sneakers to the gym in case I got tempted to jump on a treadmill. But the class actually was tough, as usual, and after not doing it for the past 2 weeks, I got really sore for like 2 days afterwards! It's amazing that even when I would do yoga once a week, I still get sore in different places. I wore my Lululemon No Limit tank in white, and my denim wunder unders. I wore my Abercrombie Josey sweater as my to/from. I thought the ruffles went well with my J Crew floral flip flops. Hehe.
What I did: On Thursday, I skipped my usual classes, and did my own workout. I just ran a couple miles to warm up, then lifted weights at the gym.
What I did: Boxing class - it was a split class, first 30 minutes of boxing, and the last 30 minutes of hardcore circuit. During the circuit, we did intervals of running at dynamic mode on the treadmill and heavy ropes for like 5 sets. Dynamic mode always kills me - it is a setting on some high end treadmills where instead of the treadmill moving on its own, you make it move by running as fast as you can. You have to hold on to the front handle bars of the treadmill and really sprint so the belt would start moving. It may sound easy, but it's so hard to keep up the pace for even 20 seconds. It kills your legs in no time. We did 1 minute intervals each time! I really think I almost died after the 2nd set of this. Oh, and my boxing teacher (imagine a super buff big black guy) kept yelling at me to run faster and not drop below a certain speed. Heavy ropes in between the sets didn't help either. I don't know how I pulled myself through!
What I wore: I decided to take the tags off my new Lululemon Swiftly tank in pink mist, and try it out. It was actually great for the workout since it is such a light weight material. I thought it performed well and didn't move around too much during the rigorous workout. I wore my white Flow Y bra under, and my Astro crop. I also wore the pink mist Mind Over Matter pullover as to/from. I know, it was total pink mist overkill, but what can I say.. I couldn't resist.

What I did: Today I woke up and had plans to go to the gym, but right before driving that direction, decided to turn around and just run at this park near me. So I ran for about 30 minutes and called it a day. I probably ran a little over 3 miles. The first 1.5 mile was at a really fast pace. Then I took it a little easier towards the end. My legs are still tired from yesterday.
What I wore: Lululemon Swiftly long sleeve in Haze - so this makes it the 3rd day in a row that I wore the Swiftly material! I wore the Energy Bra underneath. I also wore my Passion Crop in bright blue. I wear my Passion Crop so much, I don't know what I'd do without them. They are my favorite crops by far. I'm so glad I have 2 pairs, and they both seem to be in good shape still. Fingers crossed they will last a long time!
I'm pretty happy with the amount of workouts I did this week coming out of my last week of battling the stupid cold. I'm taking next week off work to study for my test, and will be working out every morning too. I think working out makes me study better. Haha. I love it when I have week days off where I can go to the gym at any time. It is tough when you have a full time job, to squeeze time to go workout afterwards. I always look at the gym class schedule and get jealous that I can't make any of the day time classes. So next week will be a treat for me!
