I was surprised when I got there and there were only a few other people waiting for the class to begin. All the classes had wait lists the night before and then overnight a bunch of people cancelled their booking. Not me! Not Ashley! We were there at 10:45am ready to work! Our class ended up having about 16 people in it.
Unfortunately for me, my heart rate monitor dropped out for a few minutes while I was on the floor doing weights. A man from the desk came into the room and was asking “Who’s Jamie? Are you Jamie? Where is she??” I approached him and said I was who he was looking for and I had a mini panic attack, thinking someone called to ask for me because there was some sort of emergency. Thankfully, it wasn’t that but rather that my heart rate monitor wasn’t reading correctly. They thought that most likely what happened was that when I was at the row machine I had a tight grip on the handles and it messed up being able to read blood flow. Well that was a bummer because I know I was working hard! Technology is great when it works. But it doesn’t change the fact that I was still killing it!
It took such a long time to get to 12 splat points today, and when I did, you better believe I celebrated. I was the last one in the class to meet the goal, and when I did (close to 50 minutes into the workout!) I shouted “WOOO-HOOO 12 SPLAT POINTS!!!!” Before too long I will probably end up with the reputation of “the girl who loves this place a little too much” but that’s okay. I can feel that I am changing and that is what matters! I can’t WAIT for Friday to arrive. Not because it’s Friday (which needs no other reason to celebrate) but because I get to work my butt off again at OTF. Saturday will be fun because I am signed up for a workout as well as a rowing clinic at 1:30pm. Pretty sure I will be bleeding orange soon!
436 calories burned with 18 Splat points! BOOM!!!!!
