I'm not a runner, so I was really surprised when my spin class instructor asked the class if they'd be willing to try something new today - a cycle/run workout. We said yes (though a bit fearfully), and set out on our adventure. It doesn't sound like much, but it was so hard for me.
We cycled moderate hills for 10 minutes, then went out on a paved path to jog a mile, then cycled for 10 minutes, jogged for another mile, then cooled down by walking a few laps. I had done all my arm exercises before class, so needless to say, I was BEAT! I laughed when I looked at my bright red face in the mirror.
I'll go back to Kara's class though - I LOVE a good instructor who will challenge me! If you're looking for a trainer in middle TN, Kara would be great - she's upbeat, easy to talk with, she helps you understand techniques, and she gently challenges you to give your best.
My hubby will be proud of me for running 2 miles. And I'm proud too!
