Blasting Away

I love Blast 900. I attended classes pretty regularly from mid-November to the end of January, and then I got busy at work (and a few other personal distractions). It was difficult for me attend my regular 6 PM class. I started going back last week– I’m so glad I did! I forgot how great the class is to get a good workout in. Now don’t get me wrong, Blast 900 is a super difficult workout packed into 60 minutes. I actually do burn 900 calories during my classes, but it’s simple because the instructor tells you and shows you what to do. You just do what he or she says, and you’ll get an incredible workout in. The class is also so great for stress. After the class, my mind is clear and focused. I may leave class worn out, but I leave smiling and happy.

The other really cool part of Blast is how much the instructors care about everyone who goes to the class. I’m usually the largest girl in class. I’ll never be the fastest, and I’m pretty sure I have terrible form. But the instructors treat me like everyone else in the class (and I never feel out of place). When I walked in today, Paige welcomed me back without any hestitation. She also called me out during the workout and said, “Kim’s back. We missed you!” How cool is that? I doubt the instructors at LA Fitness will ever know my name– and they certainly won’t remember it!

I was honestly embarrassed by not going for a while, but I left proud I went back.

What keeps you motivated?

 

 

P.S. The owner of Blast also commented on my Instagram feed tonight. How extra cool is that? I love it!

I ran a 10k this weekend! Jessica, Christina, and I ran the Sandy Springs Lightning 10k. How cool is that? Me… A 10k? It wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t quick, but I did it! And, really, who wants to be quick easy? I kid! The week before we did 7.34 miles in our training class, so I knew I could do the 10k, but I’m still really surprised with myself. I’m still really surprised I did 7 miles, too! It just seems like a such a large number. This weekend we are running 8 miles. I’m trying really hard to get my weekly runs in. I’d like to get faster. I know speed times time, but I do wish I could just snap my fingers and be lightning fast! I’ll get there, though. There was a time a few months ago where one mile seemed super, super hard. So, I know it does get easier.

It’s getting easier. It’s getting more enjoyable, too.
