I am doing the Barre3 challenge this month. I wanted to do something that could compliment my cardio on the trails. In Jan 2017 I will be doing a half marathon. I will be training for that as well.
Day 1 or week 1 was pretty easy. I picked just doing the 10 minute online workout. I should note that I am doing all online. I have a pretty clean diet so I am using the nutritional stuff as options, but not everyday. I will probably do one meal a week using their recipes. I also went out on the trails to do a mix of jogging and walking. I think by the end of the day I had somewhere in the 17,000 step range.
As part of the challenge you are to also do four 60 minute workouts in the week. I decided to do the first 60 minute workout on day 2. Actually as I write this I will be doing the first 60 in about 30 minutes.
My body hurts a bit from just the 10 minute workout yesterday. Not a bad hurt. The good hurt that you get having not done certain exercises for some time.
Hopefully I will be able to do all of the 60 minute workouts. I am getting a tooth pulled today. Not sure how recovery will go. Planning for the rest of the 60 min workouts to be thurs-friday-sat. Hoping also to get on the trails as well. At least for my usual brisk walking and jogging.

It only costs 15 dollars. You could also find a coupon code for it to be a little bit cheaper. I did from Audrey Roloff at aujpoj.com
Audrey does a great job at describing why to do the challenge. I believe the code is b3audreyroloff.
Let me know if you join.
