Since I’ve done a few pump classes now and some of the tracks were starting to get easier, I decided it was time to take my weights up a little bit. I’m still way off my old pre-pregnancy weights, but it felt good to just nudge them up a little.
Needless to say my legs were shaking. That’s where I seem to be having the most trouble and feel the weakest, in my legs. Even in the back track my legs shake from being exhausted in the squat track.
I got to the end of the class and I felt very satisfied that I had pushed myself very hard (without over doing it). Then after the class the lady next to me (who has been very nice to me everytime I see her at the gym) said “are you going to stay for combat?”
I was like, “what? Isn’t it attack that is next?”
She told me that the attack instructor was sick and they couldn’t find a replacement so they put combat on instead.
Since there’s only 1 combat class per week, and both Alex and I can’t go at the same time, I just HAD to stay. But this was going to be a challenge. I haven’t gotten fit enough for doubles yet (except if it’s balance) so this was the first time I’d be doing a tough double.
I was shaking even in the warmup, and I was shaking every single track but I pushed myself throught it. I was glad to be able to get 1 last chance at doing BC36 cuz I quite like that release and haven’t gotten a chance to do it much.
Needless to say today I am VERY sore and I expect it to get worse….. 😉
