What To Do, What To Do...

I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do with myself now that the Baltimore race is over.  For right now, I have to keep up a pretty strict running regimen, at least until I run the Disney Half Marathon.  I'm also signed up for the Celtic Solstice 5 miler in December, so I'm pretty set for running.

It's cross-training that is the issue.  I tried Josh Hillis' workouts in April/May, but failed to really be inspired to continue.  The major problem with his workouts is my own lack of equipment to do the job.  Videos are more inspiring, at least for me.

So, I have a few options:

  1. Go back to Cathe.  I can start doing her videos now, and then when I'm done with Disney, I can start doing her full rotations again, which I would love.  Can I be as inspired to keep up with them as I was back in 2005?
  2. Krav Maga.  This is a fighting workout.  It's martial arts based on the Israeli army.  They have a location in Owings Mills, which is convenient.  However, I feel very intimidated by it.  I also have no clue how much it costs or how many times a week it needs to be practiced.
  3. Rock Climbing.  I've done this, so I know the drill.  I do love rock climbing and it would allow me to work out my upper body without weights.  However, the closest gym is in Timonium, which is not as convenient as Columbia used to be when I worked down the street.  I also need my belay partner to buy into this one and be willing to do it with me. Since he works in Annapolis, who knows.  At least we both already own all of the equipment.
  4. Personal trainer.  I could see if I could find a personal trainer, but I need one who won't require me to join a gym.  I also need one that is affordable, and frankly most personal trainers are NOT affordable.  What I would most want would be a personal trainer who does not require a gym membership, but who is also willing to teach in a class format (so, maybe 4-8 people at a time) in order to help us reduce cost.  I have no idea how to find that, but I'm certain that I could fill a class if it's in the Owings Mills area.

So, I don't know.  For now, I took this week off in order to give myself some time to mentally recover.  Cathe is certainly the easiest, but I think one of the other three would be more fun if I could get others into it.
