Well, I have a new found addiction. Barre 3. Where the ballet barre meets yoga and pilates. Known as Madonna’s hot ballet workout. www.barre3.wordpress.com/us-weekly-madonnas-hot-ballet-workout/
I was very skeptical about it since I did not leave the class dripping sweat. But after a solid seven weeks of going 3 to 4 times a week.
I have changed my mind.
I can tell a difference in how strong I feel as well as the nice sculpting that is happening on my arms and legs. It definitely has lengthen and strengthened my body.
Now, I am addicted.
I haven’t run for seven weeks which is shocking after running for 2 1/2 years on Saturday mornings. I wanted to reshape my body then start up the running again. Back to square one. Just running a mile or two.
One of the owners of the Bellevue/Seattle Barre 3 ran half-marathons, full marathons and triathlons mentioned that after doing barre that it helped her run faster.
Not that I want to run faster, but I do want to run to keep up with my girlfriends.
