After realizing we could only do one fitness class this week, we opted for the 7:30 spin class this morning. One thing that just does not describe me is a morning workout person. I prefer to workout in the afternoon or even at night. Mornings and working out just aren’t part of my jam. But I dragged myself out of bed this morning knowing that I had someone waiting on me to work out with. When I got to the TRECS, Jess was already there sweating up a storm on the stairmaster. Suddenly I felt guilty for not wanting to come. We took Spin and worked our behinds off. The music was killer and the instructor was so on point. We did various combinations of sprints, climbs, and intervals. My kind of morning. I thought I would be tired throughout the day but really it just gave me more energy. Spin is one of my favorite classes minus the ridiculous seats that get all up in your lady parts.

This has been a great week of trying some group fitness classes, dabbing the cross training, and getting my butt in gear. I feel 100 times better just by doing these classes and rowing. It really helps to have someone do it all with you. I’m so grateful for a friend like Jess. She has motivated me to work hard and to chase my dreams with a reason behind it. She is in ridiculously good shape with probably explains why we met in an exercise class last year. Who would have thought we would be workout partners? Next week we are going to try some Jillian Michaels workout DVDs and see where we get with that. Getting excited about things to come.
fit friends are the best kind of friends
