I came across an ad on the Waukesha Patch for Energize Zone's Fitness Challenge. I hemmed and hawed for a week or so and then decided to contact Ken and find out what it is all about. He explained that it is a cross training workout paired with a nutrition class and weekly weigh ins. I decided to sign up.
My first class was last week Wednesday and I felt it through Friday! I'm not going to give away all the deets of the class, but it was one heck of a workout for me. Ken really works the group and has us challenge ourselves to work harder than we think we can. I'll write more on this after a few more classes.
Taking just that one class has motivated me to get moving more.

|Funny ninja look?|
Compression leggings from OldNavy Active line - high waisted - no longer sold. I recommend these.
Regular socks and my old Adidas workout shoes. It was sloppy out, so I didn't want to splash up my good running shoes yet.
Top Half -
Danskin Active sports bra
Cuddle Duds reversible long sleeve
Tek Gear 1/4 zip fleece
On My Head -
White Elephant 2011 Hat
SO smart touch stretchy gloves
All of this gear worked out well and I had no problems breathing the cold air so I highly recommend getting a facemask. I was able to get in 2 miles before my body told me to take it easy and since my injury, I listen to my body very carefully. I'm unsure of my pace as my Couch-2-5k app didn't record it properly but for a first time in the snow, I'm sure it was slow. But I beat everyone that stayed on the couch today!!!
I can't wait to get out for more runs and continue the boot camp classes for the next three months.
