Humptastic Day & Day 18 of 30 DOT

30 Days of Thanks....

Day Eighteen: Good Music

I am all about the music; music in the car, music while at work (thanks Pandora), music through the Bose at home, music on my run, and usually the music at the gym. One of my favorite parts about BODYPUMP class is the upbeat music. A lot of the music are dance remixes of older songs and I just love it. It sure makes an hour of pumping iron go fast, and I am thankful for that! Plus, Good music leaves me in a super happy mood! How about you?

Here's one of my new FAVORITE songs....





On that note, I went to BODYPUMP class last night. I really really really try to go once a week, but with my cold last week, it's been probably 2 weeks since my last confession, I mean BODYPUMP class. Sooooo, I am afraid of how sore I am going to be today.

Before heading to BP, I had enough time to get in 2 good miles on the treadmill. I always try to run a mile or so before class, depending on when I get to the gym. But today, for some reason, I had enough time to get in two "speedier" miles. In fact, the run was going so well, that I almost canned BP class to see how far my legs would take me. I haven't done more than 6 miles since early October. I quickly reminded myself that it's been too long since my last BP class that I NEEDED to go. I HAD to go.




Sidebar .... Has anyone ever tried zipfizz before? A friend at the gym had me try it today during BP class. I drank the entire 20 oz. during class and by the time I left (an hour later) I was quite shaky but feeling like I could run a marathon. *note* I have never run a marathon before. It's supposed to give you energy for 4-6 hours and it sure as heck did... left me lying awake listening to my heart beat, last night. Have you ever tried it before? I don't know if I will ever try it again... not at 430pm.... maybe for a long run in the morning, or something...


How was your hump day?!

Curious, I looked up zipfizz and it looks like just another caffeine delivery system.

Is it caffeine, or more along the lines of FRS?

Thanks for the new tune! :)

Shannon said...

Ohhh, I've never tried that before. I wonder where she/he got it?

Thanks for the comment this morning, it made me feel a little less anxious on posting my thoughts about the subject!

How much caffeine is in that stuff? I'm not a fan of energy drinks. I don't like that "Buzz" feeling and if I have it in the morning, I tend to crash hard later in the day.

Awesome job getting back to BP!

I'm always suspicious of things like that! Nice work on the 2miles and PB!
