Boot Camp My Way To The Sporting Life 10K!

So, I started a new class to keep up my cross-training in the winter: Boot Camp. And I may have just fallen in love. My instructor is fierce and she knows how to kick-butt– I LOVE IT! Looks like I will be lifting weights more then I thought- Kelly Ripa and Michelle Obama, waaaatch out! My arms are gonna look like yours very soon! My friends use to rave to me about this hardcore workout but I never jumped on their bandwagon… until now. Annnd– another BFF jumped onto my running soul train! SO excited!! Meet my newest running BFF (I LOVE saying that! And I love saying love– have you noticed?!) Here’s my two newest running BFF’s:

My Running BFF’s: Shan, Me, and Tasha

If you will notice this image is very similar to my previous post image of my newest running BFF. I like to call this, “the night my friends became crazy runners like myself!” And this just in, Tasha and I have just signed up for the Sporting Like 10K in Toronto on May 1st, 2011! (Shan– it’s your turn to make it official! *wink*wink* I’m about to go and make your training schedule…) I’m SO excited! And I hear more bff’s might be joining in on the fun! (YA! YA! YAAAA!)

Get pumped with this preview:

My first official registration has been made for the season– the countdown is on!

And in t-minus 1 hour and 5 minutes Brit’s new single will be on iTunes… yep, you guessed it! The countdown is totes on for that too!

Haven’t heard it? Check it out HERE!

Flirtatiously Cross-training!

I bought my first issue of Runner’s World Magazine yesterday. I know what you are thinking: this girl is getting serious about her runs! This mag is full of SO many useful tips, facts, and stories that I thought were all directed at me. Not literally. (I’m not that vain and I don’t think this song is about me.) One of the many pages I was drawn to was page 26. Cross-training. Instead of just running and using all of the same muscles all of the time- you’ve gotta switch it up! This way you won’t get burnout or bored. Cross-training also makes you stronger, healthier, and the way I do it- ALOT of FUN!

Ever since I took my sister to a pole dancing class at Flirty Girl Fitness for her bachlorette- I have been hooked with this place! I went back and took the Cardio Booty Kickboxing class and after 15 minutes I was sweating so much, my muscles were given’r and I just kept thinkingKelly Ripa arms- here I come!” So, I added “take a chair striptease class” to #14 on my Buried Life list. Can we say, “checked that off today!”

I will never hear this song or look at a chair the same way again!
Sorry boys, this is a girls only training centre!

I can’t wait to cross-train again! 2 hours of this class was not enough. When you are just shaking your booty- you forget you are even working out! And believe me- it was a workout! I wonder what my next class will be…
