Tuesday Training Tell-All…

by agirlandhermutt on June 15, 2010

Its Tuesday. I’m training. And I’m telling all!

Week # Completed: 4
Miles Logged on the Sneaks: 10…several walks around the neighborhood at night and during the work neighborhood at lunch!
X-Training Events:  I was all over yoga, Zumba and Body Pump this week. Next week I have big plans to try a hooping class!

Others: The Scientist and I are trying to get out and about on the bike/running again.

I’m totally in love with Body Pump and Zumba. I realize I mention it CONSTANTLY, but I can’t help it. I’m a fan! Tonight I convinced my friend, Karen, to join me for a Zumba class with Liza, my fave instructor. Liza is a little more hip-hop than latin flavor and I love that. It feels like a dance class and I leave sweating like a maniac.

I’m currently on a quest to get some Zumba, or aerobic shoes. My regular walking/running sneakers have way to much tread and cause me to get stuck on the floor quite a bit. Want to help me decide on some shoes?

Option 1:
Option 2:

Option 3:

Zappos.com has some great deals on all of these shoes so they run about the same price. I also know I will get TONS of use out of them since I’m hitting Zumba about 3 times a week.
Any thoughts? Other suggestions?

In other workout news, I got my bondibands in the mail today! I had a black one that I wore during the Avon Walk. They are great for keeping my hair out of my face and wick away all the sweat. They are perfect for someone that has *tons* of hair like me. I decided to branch out and get some colors this time: teal and silver & black stripes.
I’m not going to lie. I’m not the best looking kid in these. I have a bowling ball for a head and it is completely my fault.
I don’t care how funky I look, I love LOVE love how great these bands are. Definitely check them out if you get a chance.
I’ve also decided that I need to challenge myself with the number of steps I’m taking each day. A friend of mine is doing a challenge at work where people compete to walk the most steps each day. I love this idea and decided to challenge myself and a co-worker to walk the recommended 10,000 steps (or more!) a day. The average person’s stride length is about 2.5 feet and it takes a little more than 2,000 steps to walk a mile. So 10,000 miles=5 miles a day. How great is that?! Walk 5 miles just by walking around doing regular day stuff.
Stay tuned. I’ll be letting you know how the challenge goes each week. Anyone else wear a pedometer? Want to join me in the 10,000 step challenge?!

I like shoe option #1! I find it hard to resist anything pink. 🙂

I'm in the market for a new pair too. I haven't tried Zumba or Body Jam because the gym I belong to doesn't offer them, but my sister is a huge fan!
