Day 16

5 Jun

A top-secret event is happening on campus today; you better believe I’m going to visit the building I have no business being in just to try to make a cameo :-P.

Back to more important things. Early morning at State’s gym to train then straight to work. Overnight oats with cookie butter and frozen strawberries to fuel me! I need to go to the grocery store ASAP..

Cycling was great! Ever heard of Florence + The Machine? The instructor played a lot of their songs and I felt it was the perfect match; hills were paired with intense songs that built-up as we added resistance. Sprints were high-tempo, fast-paced songs that made my legs explode with speed! Definitely more my style of cycling than the first 60-minute class I took. One of the songs we climbed a steep hill too 

Say hello to your newest fitness instructor here at the RFC! My demo went well yesterday and they’ll put me on the schedule for June-exciting! I also demoed my very, very basic step routine; step is a format that’s completely new to me to teach so there’s no doubt I need more time practicing! Good thing I’m in the right place :).

My supervisor took me out to lunch at one of the more upscale cafe’s on campus. Fresh sushi bar with a choice of 6 rolls, a fresh salad bar with all of the fixings, a grill station, a brick-oven station, and a vegetarian station..oh and a dessert station that had one-too-many of my fave’s! Seriously SO much to choose from! I opted for a rainbow roll (spicy tuna inside, tuna and avocado on the outside), a side salad, and an apple (no I didn’t eat the core since I was trying to have good manners); the sushi was unbelievably fresh, the salad was crisp and refreshing, and even the apple tasted better (just kidding!). It’s probably a good thing I don’t get paid; employees simply scan their I.D. and it takes it out of their paycheck. It’d be easy to overspend since you don’t actually hand-over the cash!

Strength Training for Runners started today and I’m able to help out with the workouts and making sure the participants have proper form. The class is 4 weeks long and progresses each week; next week we’ll introduce the step as a way to strength train!

Attending Body Sculpt & Balance tonight! Review will be posted tomorrow.

See ya!
