Running into Jam
Body Jam. I like the workout because it is fun and constantly changing, yet I burn close to 400 calories per class. But last night I knew I had to run because I had missed my Tuesday run due to circumstances out of my control. A little bummed about this I decided I would go to the first half of Jam and then hop on the tredmill and run 3 miles. Good plan, right? Well as soon as I walked in Jam after having eaten pizza and drinking soda earlier in the day I knew I would not leave class to go run, so I made my self run the first half of class. Boy, what a motivator! As I was running and started feeling tired I didn't slow down because I wanted to make it to the last half of class. It was perfect! I finished 3 miles in 29 minutes and got to class at exactly the half-way point where there is a little mini cool down before starting the last cardio block. I think I may do the same thing next week. I need to run 8 miles this weekend, so we will see what kind of motivation I can muster for that. Oh by the way, here is the training plan I follow for running.
