Freshman year all over again

Hi Everyone! I am blogging on a break from my class so I’ve got to be quick. This ACSM class for Certified Personal Trainers is making my head spin! I don’t know what I was thinking when I thought I could take the test within a few weeks of taking the class!

Just check out this crazy slide! I haven’t taken a class in soo long – I swear I don’t even remember how to study. I feel like a Freshman in college again.

Before leaving for class this afternoon, I hopped on the treadmill for a brand new running routine! Yes, I think I’ve broken out of my rut – here’s what I did:

  • 5 Min walk at 4.0
  • 2 Min run at 7.0
  • 3 Min run at 7.4
  • 2 Min run at 7.6
  • 2 Min run at 7.8
  • 2 Min run at 7.0
  • 2 Min run at 7.4
  • 3 Min run at 7.6
  • 2 Min run at 7.8
  • 2 Min run at 7.0
  • 2 Min run at 7.6
  • 2 Min run at 7.4
  • 2 Min run at 7.8
  • 2 Min run at 7.0
  • 2 Min run at 7.6
  • 5 Min walk at 4.5

Total 30 min run and 10 min walk!

Wow, this workout kicked my butt! I was sweating so bad at the end too, and I only covered about 4.5 miles! Burned a ton of calories though – whew, thank goodness ­čśë

I’m about to head back to class after eating my yummy $3.50 salad…

  1. Hang in there!

  2. That workout looks good! Anything to make the gym less boring! And isn’t being a student SOOO fun ­čśë Are you liking the material at least??

    • Christy – I am definitely liking the material but it’s information overload. I wish I would have majored in exercise science in college.

  3. I probably wouldn’t remember how to study right now and I only graduated 6 months ago, haha. Good luck girl!

    • Hey Low! Isn’t that funny how much you forget from College – including the studying aspect. I just hope my test-taking skills haven’t deteriorated.
