Kickboxing, Yoga and Gliding

by - Tuesday, September 11, 2007

It's been about a week since I've done any sort of physical activity because I had been sick. So yesterday I had planned to get in a short run before I had to teach my yoga class.

Well turns out like half of the fitness instructors on staff seemed to be sick yesterday and they were in desperate need for people to sub. Now normally I would have been all over that because I can always use the extra cash. But I still didn't have a voice. (Note to self: Must stop cheering so loudly at soccer games. Side Note: Terps beat GMU 3-0 on Sunday! WHOO!) But my boss was really desperate.

I told her I would teach Gliding. (You basically stand on frisbee-like discs and do all sorts of crazy stuff. It is one hell of a work out. If it's offered at a gym by you...I seriously recommend trying it. I'm still sore today.)

The main reason I offered to teach Gliding is because it doesn't require as much up beat yelling as kickboxing. But then she called back and said she got another girl to teach Gliding could I do kickboxing. I was like yea sure, I'll manage somehow.

Turns out I ended up teaching Kickboxing, then yoga, then Gliding...back to back...that's three straight hours of working out. And people let me tell you I am sore. I was not in yoga shape at all. My shoulders are none too happy with me today.

But that's some serious money in the bank! Tonight, I'm thinking about heading over to the gym to do some lifting. We'll see how sore I am though.

  1. I have a hard time saying no when I referee too. I just had to tell two of my assignors I'm taking the rest of the year off. :-(

    You're getting the cross training we all know we should do--plus you're getting paid for it.

    Am a huge ND fan too, and I'm afraid it's going to be a long season-- especially after last season. But I'm faithful to them nonetheless.

    Hope you're recovering from the racing and all your other activities.
