Kettlebells = Love

Last night, I went to my first Kettlebells class. I had no clue what to expect, except that I was convinced I would end up with a few bruises out of the deal. After all, what else would happen when you are swinging a 20 pound metal ball all over the place?

I had a fantastic time. The hour long class went by really quickly and it was HARD work. I found myself shaking like a leaf several times. After the class was over, I had a huge endorphin high. I was blabbering like a fool about how much I loved the class for at least an hour afterwards. This morning, I talked to my friends who went to the class with me, and they said they did the same thing - so at least I know I'm not a complete nerd.

When I got home, I played with Sophie and got her to bed, then put my bike on the trainer and watched my Tivo'd Biggest Loser. I think I may have my new Tuesday night routine . . .

Oh, running blog, right. Track workout Monday night. I've got 8 miles on the schedule tonight, hills tomorrow, and a 10K race Saturday.

What a great Tuesday!

One of my friends wants me to go try kettlebell with her in the fall. Sounds like something I would like!

I need to get a bike that I can plop on the trainer - there's enough TV watching in the evening - might as well get bike time concurrently!

One of the trainers at my rec center is quite fond of the kettleballs and I see her using them with her clients all the time. Unfortunately, she keeps them locked up in her little office, so you have to [pay and] go through her to get to them. Maybe I'll suck it up and pay...
