This is my second BFL attempt. I had to pull out last time because of a marathon injury. I started the plan while training for a full marathon. In fact, marathons and other workouts like Zumba and swimming are big parts of my social life. How do I balance these?
Please note, when I first started marathoning it was with a speed walking group. I've since moved on to running as speed walking did not raise my heart rate. I am still very close with many of those ladies who train regularly and invite me along. I want to continue to meet with them. Is this going to be an issue? They also meet for a core workout weekly. I usually cycle about ten miles before I meet with them (before program kick-off). It is very mild. I haven't seen any class quite that mild at any gym I've attended. Is it going to affect recovery?
i also have two other close friends who do body pump. I love the class and enjoy accompanying my pals. Is that something I can continue?
What about spinning?
Great question. I would love to know what people have to tell you . I have a triathlon and a 10 mile race coming up in the next month which have me doing a lot more than 20 min of HIIT 3 times a week. I figure I'll just have to "wing it" for my 1st few weeks.
