Just call me a gym rat. Not.

Not wanting to ride in the butt-ass cold and being tired I opted for the 'gymnasium'. First I did my own core routine (30 min), then I dropped in on an ab class (30 min) and finally I participated in a Body Pump class (60 min). Now I am more tired. :)

But not in the way that a long ride tires you out so that's good.

ASIDE – turns out Body Pump is a very structured, specific kind of workout. You can get certified to teach it and the moves are, I'm guessing, the same no mater where you take this kind of class.

having only done core exercises for the last year or so I am always surprised at how weak my abs are. No six-pack here. But it's all good as my back has been slowly getting better. The back extensions were again super tough. Holy cow.

My right knee/IT band did not bother me at all but that's probably because these classes were not about jumping around – practically zero impact. And it's one reason I chose to do this today.
