Exactly. What is that? Honestly I'm still not sure but I do know it made me sweat, it made me work, it made me sore. That means it's good. A friend from work invited me to the class last night at 8 PM. Normally I'd be home deep in the throes of bath, book, puzzle, bed…but this week LB is on a trip of a lifetime to Washington DC with his dad, to meet the POTUS at a White House 4th of July BBQ. So I have this week to myself, in other words time to workout at 8 PM.

The class lasted 35 minutes and it was rough. It was a circuit and went like this:

-Started out on the spin bike and completed 100 standing rotations.
-20 step ups onto a box with high knee raises with a bar with added weight (I was a weenie and only added 10 pounds)
-50 jump ropes
-Lift our bar chest and up over the head (what is that called anyways?)
-50 jump ropes
-20 squats with the bar
-50 jump ropes
-20 push-ups
-50 jump ropes
And repeat….over and over for 35 minutes. I made it through 3 times and then some.

It was a pretty good workout!

I also had the pleasure of being the guest speaker for the Fayetteville Running Club's monthly meeting last night. I've been a member of the FRC for a while but just haven't been able to make any of the meetups due to life, work, LB's school/after school schedule. But it's summer and I'm excited to get more involved. I will be running with them and the Run to Remember group tomorrow morning for a 4th of July 5k or 10k. I think I'll be doing the 5k due to my slow comeback. I look forward to getting to know these awesome runners!

Lisa, the FRC president gave out some sweet swag at the meeting, including Margarita SHOT BLOKS. Um, yes please! Two of my favorite things, ok well I've never tried Shot Bloks but I'm excited to see how they work, and well Margaritas? I plead the 5th…but I can see how 3x the sodium would be beneficial while running in the summer heat. I can't wait to try them out.

She also loaned me a book, HOHAS in LOVE by Laurence Graham, to read and review. It's a book that relates lessons learned in running to secrets of love, a timely book for me I must say. Check out the website for the book HERE.  I'll be reading it and working on my review soon.
Well, a day of work then a day off….what are your 4th of July plans? LB and I celebrated the 4th at the beach this past weekend. We got to hang on the beach and watch the fireworks. It was pretty neat.
I could not keep him out of the water while waiting for the sun to set.
Sun setting 
Finally, the fireworks!

I hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July! This is my favorite holiday!
