This morning I woke up in time for kickboxing! Score!
My class is at a martial arts studio two doors down from my gym. I learned quickly that even though our class is supposed to start at 6am, the instructor is rarely there before 6:10. No biggie, I’ll just hang out at the gym until you show up mister.
I hopped on a treadmill and watched the parking lot for when he finally showed up. I did 4 minutes warm up and then 10 minutes HIIT (high interval intensity training – I think that’s the acronym breakdown) and then a 1 minute sprint at the end.
|1:00 – 4:00||7.4||2.0|
|4:00 – 14:00||9.0 for 20 seconds
7.7 for 40 seconds
|14:00 – 15:00||9.0||2.0|
Overall pace: 7:27
Home > van to work > cupcake delivery > work > van back to San Jose
On the way to the van I snacked on a mug with almond milk, greek yogurt, PB2, and fiber cereal (MMM fiber).
For breakfast I had another bowl of oatmeal with the usuals (oat bran, oatmeal, banana slices, flax + blueberries + cinnamon +chia seeds)
And lunch included two more bean patties and leftover salad from last night!! (Salad = best part of lunch!)
Snacks: yummy red apple Nicole picked up from TJ’s for me yesterday and some random vansnacks!!!! (appropriate name for food that is 1. offered to you in a van and 2. you don’t know exactly what to call it)
FYI: I am part of the Tequila Mockingbird team in the Campbell league of WAKA (World Adult Association of Kickball). I played with most of these people a couple of seasons ago but took a break when I moved to Monterey. Now that I’m back in San Jose I’m stoked to play on their team again every Wednesday!
Check out the Kickball recap from Game 1 (Game 2, Game 3, and Game 4 will be up soon) under the Party Time tab. They will be slightly edited versions of the recaps we send out to the team following our games; got to keep it PG :)
Question: You are in the outfield. If a red kickball is hurling at you, and you know that you have to catch it OR ELSE, do you get exxxtremely nervous?? I sure do. And then I usually can’t catch it. Just like in elementary school…
And just for kicks, another music suggestion for the folky/jazzy:
