One of the classes I've tried out is Les Mills' Body Pump
BODYPUMP™ is the original barbell class that strengthens your entire body. This 60-minute workout challenges all your major muscle groups by using the best weight-room exercises like squats, presses, lifts and curls. Some of the girls from the Weight Watchers boards I email with recommended I use little-to-no weights for my first time. I listened, and I'm glad I did. I could barely move the next two days! I had a lot of fun taking it tho. It was a lot harder than I thought. I'm hoping to take this class on a regular basis, but with my work schedules its hard sometimes.
I'm looking at doing the Half Marathon in Des Moines on October 17th, which is only 72 days away! I have been training, but nothing like I should be. Since its my first half, my goal is to finish. Here is the route-lots of bathrooms, first-aid stations, and scenery.
I have a solid two months of training left, so hopefully I can build up some endurance. I figure if I walk the whole thing at a 20 minute mile, it will only take 4 1/2 hours....so as long as I'm not last, I'll be happy :)
Any stretching, eating, or just good-ol tips you can throw out out there for a half marathon virgin?
