Friday’s workout: 1 mile warm up, body pump class
I wasn’t very sore yesterday considering I had a difficult run on Thursday. I tried to challenge myself a little in body pump by adding on more weight to a couple of the exercises, and still, those squats will get me every time. Jump squats are the devil.
When I was little I wanted to be a gymnast sooooooooo badly…specifically, to be Dominique Moceanu in 8th grade. I thought she was awesome and strong and talented and that just maybe if I tried hard enough I could be just as good. Although at that point I am pretty sure I was done with tumbling. My short stint in gymnastics went on the backburner when I started playing basketball in middle school… and that clearly got me far, so great choice on my parents part (I blame them).
Anyway, if you’ve looked at any sort of website in the last four days you know that the US did amazing this year in the Olympics (if winning gold isn’t amazing, I don’t know what is). I was a huge nerd and got all teary when they won the gold like I was back in 8th grade again.
My favorite is Gabby Douglas. Gosh I just want to put her in my pocket.
I saw this funny little parody yesterday and thought I’d share.
