  • I accidentally had two workouts today. I usually have my sessions with Krystal on Thursday. This week that doesn't work out for me, so I changed it to Wednesday. But this morning I completely forgot about that until I got to the gym for TRX. I figured I was already there so I may as well just stay. 25 minute run before class, then TRX. There were only 6 people today, which made it so much harder to slack off-because Marc would notice, and I would feel stupid if I was just watching while all the other 5 people were doing the exercises. And, Marc did not let me slack off. When he noticed that I skipped one pushup he made me do it after everyone else finished. Later on I had my session with Krystal. I told her about my morning mistake, but she had no mercy on me. She had planned an intense cardio workout and she wasn't going to change it. It included stair drills-I hate those.

  • Modern Dance: Thank goodness modern dancers do things on the floor that require sit ups during warm up! I was feeling intimidated by the last 70 ish sit ups I had to do for today until our instructor put them to music and a whole bunch of us did them together. Yay for group fitness!!

    We did other fun things in modern too, like dance in triplets (down, up, up, down, up, up) to Joni Mitchell songs and swing our bodies around like we were trying to flick honey off our fingers! I really enjoyed it (jazz fingers are still my favorite though!)!

  • New Yoga Studio: I went to my first 6am yoga class at Stroga in Adams Morgan. The space is GIANT and beautiful with ornate, historic ceiling tiles and molding. Floor to ceiling windows look out on the city.

    The instructor was also surprisingly good considering she was just certified a year ago at the ripe age of 23 (no judgments, no judgments). She led us through new and refreshing pose sequences with lots of strong warriors, balancing poses and so, so, so many squats. Well, really just a few squats that we held for a really long time.

    But there was one, major negative: the music. The music was what you might here in TJ Maxx, or the DMV or Rite Aid when you are sick. Classic Rock. Not classic classic rock, but the bad stuff from the mid-90s -- like that kiss the rain song and oasis. I tried to push it out of my thoughts, but it was really distracting and, honestly, if I didn't have an unlimited month pass (thanks groupon) I might not go back solely because of the music. (And also because I felt like I was cheating on my much loved studio that I've been with for five years.) But since I do have an unlimited pass -- I'll be back it on Thursday! And I will enjoy my time at Stroga even if the music stays the same. It will make me stronger!

    • C J. hahaha maybe the music changes with each instructor? sounds like really nice studio! 3 years ago
