What a great week! I dialed down my ClassPass classes this week, because I was ramping up some activities in other areas and really didn’t want to overdo it.
In Seawheeze news, I got two really decent runs in this week with no serious issues. Better than my last run.
I also had a ski trip yesterday that I really didn’t want to be tired for. Unfortunately I think I may have “skier’s thumb” from a fall on my first run (arg!), so not sure what my workouts will look like this week until I see a doctor. I did try half an hour of yoga tonight without incident, so it looks like I’ve still got full body active options on the table.
Diet has been excellent, since I started a Whole30 last Sunday! I have such a love/hate relationship with the Whole30. It’s tough, but I always feel so great and see such amazing results!
Now for what I wore this week. As always, click on the thumbnail to better see the outfit and read more details!
I absolutely love spinning at The Monster Cycle, and always feel like such a beast in their classes. So, I went camo crazy last Sunday. Lululemon crazy, too. Except for the Louis Garneau shoes, everything else was Lululemon: clip in crops, clip in tank, energy bra, bang buster headband and socks. Couldn’t be comfier while sweating my face off.
Purple pants. What more could you want?! Love these Wunder Under crops from Lululemon. On top I wore a Run Swiftly tank from Lululemon, a VS Sport bra, Lululemon socks and Mizuno Wave Inspire 10’s – my favorite running shoes. Great outfit for a run and some yoga.
Restorative yoga outfit is all about comfort. Since the studio gets chilly in the winter, especially if you get a spot by a window, I usually wear long layers. All Lululemon here – a radiant long sleeve top, wunder under pants and after savasana socks – LOVE these things. I wear them a lot as an outer layer to and from class, but they’re really great for this yoga class when I need something warmer and want my feet covered.
I desperately needed to do laundry, so pulled whatever was clean from my closet. Some Nike crops, and Adidas running shirt and Thorlo socks. Unfortunately the crops are a little big and I don’t wear them often, so those got washed and went in the giveaway pile. More room for Lululemon pants I suppose 😉
Had to get up at 5:30AM to row, so needed something fun to motivate me. My awesome galaxy pants, plus a great purple Lululemon tank, Lululemon Ta Ta Tamer, and Nike free’s. I felt colorful and awesome on the erg!
This day was rough. I did NOT want to work out, and had a lot I needed to do in the gym. So, I put on my favorite crops – Lululemon run inspires, with an inspirational tank from Old Navy, with a Lululemon Ta Ta Tamer and Thorlo socks. Pictured are Nike trainers, but there was a last minute substitution to the Mizuno Wave Inspire 10’s, as I had to get a run in (along with the already programmed burpees, yoga and stretching I had planned). In the end, I felt great after a big sweat, and couldn’t have picked a better outfit to get me out the door!
In my quest to track more metrics about my fitness journey, I decided to take a look at WHERE I’m working out, not just when/how long/at what intensity/etc. This is only tracking the classes I’ve taken through ClassPass, and not any other studio or home/run activities, but it’s still cool to look at. I’ve created a chloropleth map (the darker colors indicate where I’ve taken more classes, the lighter colors indicate where I’ve taken fewer classes) of my ClassPass activities below – click the link to see the map! Class locations are mapped by census block and tract, and I’ve labeled each tract (which in my case indicate individual studios) with the number of times I’ve visited that studio. I didn’t realize how spread out the studios were, until I started looking at this map, and can barely see all of the locations at once. I took a look at some distances, and it turns out I’m traveling an average of 26.5 miles per week to class! That’s more than a marathon! I’ve traveled a grand total of 345 miles so far, which is about the distance from NYC to Richmond, Virginia! And, it’s an average of 7.5 miles per class. Thank goodness for the subway! I’m excited to add on to this map, especially in new cities using my ClassPass Flex! How far you do commute to workout?
