After training so hard and making sure to eat right for the last few months, a fitness break was gloriously needed. And by fitness break I mean Netflix marathons and lots of MunchAdo.com (like Seamless but better) ordering.
Everything in moderation, you know. Until it's time to jump back on the "summer is coming" bandwagon.
I'm going to separate running from my fitness classes because if I'm going to be entirely honest, de-stressing makes me get up and run. It's my only chance to be utterly alone and take in the silence (besides my heavy breathing). In NYC, those moments are few and far between, so I'll take them every chance I get.
Unfortunately running doesn't work out all of my body parts and so I rely on sweat-inducing Tone House and Bikram classes. And for those classes, I really need that extra motivation to get through a single push-up. A fitness goal of mine, by the way.
My little bits of motivation tend to come from Lucy for their performance wear and different styles that work with and not against me. In fact, for the Brooklyn Half my entire outfit (sans sports bra) was entirely Lucy - it battled heat, wind, and even a heavy rain shower.
In the end it left me without chafing or an unbearable heat rash. Plus the clothes were cute and as cliché as it sounds, when you look great you feel great. And in my case, push yourself harder (in class) to do two push-ups instead of one cause you're so great.
