When I say I book up 2 weeks in advance, I really mean it. It’s gotten a little better lately… it’s about a week now. But this weekend was jam packed. I’ll just give you my Saturday rundown. My girlfriend Amanda is getting her fitness class certification at LifeStyle. You have to “Team Teach” before they set you off on your own. I’ve been attending BodyPump sporadically for a few months and luckily that’s the one Amanda is going to be teaching. Her parents were in town this weekend, and wanted to share in her experience. 4 of us that used to attend classes at our old gym got together and went to class. Here’s a look at what it is.
Video to be posted soon…
It’s an hour long, all body parts with whatever weight you choose. Apparently my weight isn’t heavy enough as Amanda kept pointing out things I shouldn’t be able to do if my bar was at the right weight for me… guess twirling the bar like a baton in between sets, doesn’t cut it. (Just kidding!) Thanks coach. I’ll try better next time!
After class, I got home to get some breakfast down, change and head to Purdue. Only 2 more home games, left… got to make them all. We played Ohio State. They beat us earlier in the year on their court. They were shooting a whopping 60% that game! That’s unheard of! Hopefully they wouldn’t do that today. We did our pre-game ritual at Harry’s and my friend Shawn had the audacity to bring a Buckeye to the game. I sat them both in the Time-Out chairs.
The Boilers only had a 6 point lead at the half but we came out strong in the 2nd and THE Retarded State couldn’t hold on. Chalk up a victory for us! I had to poke fun of course.
After the game it was time to race home to shower and change, AGAIN, for a birthday party out in Castleton. Usually I’m selfish and sleep in the car on the way home from games to get some quick energy before my next event, but it was only me and Jessi and the car and I wanted to keep her company. I got home, and shut my eyes for maybe 6 minutes and started the process all over again.
My moving stats are 150 miles, 18 hours, 6 locations, 3 outfits, lots of cocktails.
