Schedule to Sweat... May 24th, 2010

Schedule to Sweat

Ok gang-

So I made this new fitness goal for the summer: to try a new workout every week. Some rules:

  • the workout cannot take the place of any of my normal workouts/ it must be in addition to.
  • “workout” is defined here as anything that challenges my body & gets my heart rate up.

So this week after teaching my double AM classes on 83rd & 3rd, I ran upstairs to Bikram NYC for 1.5 hours of yoga in 103 degree heat.  oof! It was awesome. and so hard. Even though I have to stick to my goal and do something different this week, I think I will also toss in another yoga class!
