There’s just one more week left in the New Year’s challenge! How is everyone feeling? I’m feeling pretty good. I lost 1 pound this week, making my total lost – 14 lbs. so far!
I took Shape, Advanced and Yoga this week and I have 2 classes left to meet my goal of 16 in January! Now that it’s part of my routine I will probably keep going to at least 3 per week though since I certainly like the results and how my body looks and feels.
I’ve been doing a good amount of running on days when I’m not doing Dancers Shape and I’m excited to say that I think the Dancers Shape classes really help my running! My average mile time has gone down a full minute and the strength training from barre classes really helps to prevent injuries- no achy knees! This week I finally registered for a half marathon at the end of February! I’ll be running in Tampa, FL with one of my best friends from college. I’ve done 2 half marathons in the past but it’s always a big goal and yet another challenge. Maybe this challenge thing is becoming a theme? I am really pumped and I know a lot of Dancers Shape clients also enjoy mixing barre & running.
