You know, I’ve always wondered why they bothered with desks in hotel rooms but here i am sitting at the desk typing up this post.
I tried to type it up while lying in the bed on the heating pad but it just didn’t work. So why am I on the heating pad?
Well that’s a good question so let me recap.
I’m up at a spa
Canyon Ranch in Lenox, Mass to be exact
It was a gift from Kevin
I’m hoping to lose some weight
So this morning I took a Pilates Jump board class which I take at home so no big deal
BUT THEN, I took this Boxing class
OMG PEOPLE, OMG!!
I get there and I’m psyched to learn how to box. They start explaining about planks, and abs and jumping ropes and I’m all like “but what about the boxing?”
I thought about chickening out but hey, why the hell am I at a spa if not to try new stuff. Well, let me tell you about the class.
It’s a girl in her 20’s who’s in shape, a guy in his 20’s who is NOT in shape, me and another woman who turns out to be a masseuse there AND an ex boxer. Yeah, you heard me, an EX-BOXER.
So they get out a rope ladder and basically the warmup is all this footwork running down the ladder and then looping back. Doesn’t sound so bad now does it? Until you’re doing squats and looping back for the millionth time.
I’m pretty much huffing and puffing and they say “warm-ups over so let’s get to work.” WORK? I’m dying here people.
Then one minute of jump rope and a 30 second wall sit. and again … AND AGAIN.
Then we put on the gloves!
Yeah, we’re gonna box right?
Planks, abs, Planks, abs, Push ups, abs, Push ups, abs
Now we’re going to box!!!
Here’s a jab … like this. And another type of punch and another. Let’s try this on the left. Now on the right. Everyone have it?
Yes, we all have it. Boy am I tired. I bet we’re almost done.
Well, now its time for Tabata intervals???!! WTF???
So we do 8 30 second intervals with different types of punches with 10 seconds in between.
Am I dying?
What do you think?
Are we done?
No! We’re doing the entire Tabata thing again.
I seriously have never worked so hard in my life and it was stupid to do a jump board class before this class.
So my back? Tired … hurting … stiff.
So the heating pad? Necessary
That’s all for now folks.
If i’m alive i’ll post again tomorrow.
