Cross-Training

So, since I can’t run until the bone scan is done and my leg heals up I’ve been trying new ways to maintain my cardio fitness.

My life right now: crutches, stretching band, and a water bottle.

I’ve taken up spin again.  I wasn’t looking forward to doing it again since it wasn’t as exhilarating as running but I dove into it again.  I usually go to the 6 AM class so I can get spin in before work but today I decided to go to the evening class.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that the instructor was Lori, the spin instructor I liked when I was pregnant.  It was a great class as expected.  It was refreshing to have her as an instructor again.

After the class.  Sweating up a storm feels great.

One of the perks of spin?  High cardio = high calorie burn.  Awesome!

Holy calorie burn, Batman!

I’ve delved in swimming for a bit.  I forgot how much I dislike it but I was able to swim laps for about an hour.  Still, swimming not my thing so I’ll stick to spin.

I miss running so much.  I miss the solitude and the beautiful scenery I get to experience.  Maybe I’ll try biking this weekend so I can get my nature fill.

Where I love to run.
