Where I'm at training wise

A few people have asked me where I'm at training wise. At the moment, I'm simply having a lot of fun with my training. I've been spending a fair bit of time building my aerobic base cycling as I will be placing a lot of demand on it teaching RPM when I get back home. When I'm up there on stage I really try and give each class my all, so my participants can see what level they need to work towards and so I also have the energy to coach the class and focus on them, rather than worrying that I'm going to run out of gas.
As I have had no access to a gym, I've been keeping my muscles active with DVDs from Cathe and Amy Bento. I often add my own twists in, like a BOSU, balance disc or medicine ball to increase the intensity and to keep my muscles guessing. I've really been enjoying doing these workouts and both Cathe and Amy are very encouraging and motivating.
I have also been getting my heart rate up with some running and some step.
The "down time" I've had has been really restorative to me. I would like to add some more muscle but will wait until life smooths out for me after the move...and then who knows?

I love your definition of downtime, Liz! You are definitely one crazy woman.... and I mean that in the nicest possible way of course. ;-)

It is just so motivational to read how you have managed to keep up with your training with no gym facilities where you are, gosh I even tend to rely on the gym for cardio these days, ;)

Must say that the pic below of you is just gorgeous Liz

have a great weekend,
