This past Wednesday, we had the award ceremony for Healthworks Workplace Warrior Challenge.
I just realized also, that I didn’t update my numbers.
Weight – stayed the same
Body fat – down 1%
Muscle Mass – up 1%
So, nothing too crazy happened number wise for me. A couple members on the team ended up losing 4lbs! I need to find out their secret!!
Well, all in all, we didn’t win the challenge.
Honestly, I don’t know who actually won the challenge, because they didn’t announce it at the “award” ceremony – which, was probably the most lackluster thing that I’ve experienced at Healthworks. I get that the Porter Square club didn’t have the winning team, but we were still ready to get a good workout and celebrate. The workout ended up being a Tabata, but the instructor didn’t quite instruct – but was really being lead by a tape. It was a little too reminiscent of a middle school gym class. After the workout, they quickly brought in some apples, bananas and coconut water, and told us that none of us won the grand prize, and the other official team at the club won the club competition, for having lost the most weight.
But, even though we didn’t win the super awesome prize, I still feel like we are a whole bunch of winners. Why? I made a bunch of friends with some coworkers who I normally wouldn’t have interacted with, without Workplace Warrior Challenge. Also, I learned how to incorporate some amazing classes into my marathon training, in order to add more cross training.
So, yes, I have a membership, and I’m figuring out how to work everything together. I plan on taking two classes regularly, and have Friday be a “swing” cross training day – and maybe taking an after work class then.
My first marathon is coming up in just ONE month.
Cue freakout now.
It’s 8:30PM on a Friday, and I’m here writing, watching Who’s Line is it Anyways and making sure that I get to bed around 9ish, so I can get up at 5:30 to run 18 miles.
The life of someone training for a marathon.
