Janathon day 29 (insanity max 30 day 18): done

Well today I tried a new thing… Les Mills cxworx I do not recommend it. It is half hearted at best made duller by crappy unenthusiastic instructors who were at best demotivating! (One of them was the same woman from my failed Zumba attempt… you  know the one…it made me write this) I may sound…… Continue reading Janathon day 29 (insanity max 30 day 18): done

Day 353: Return to the Monday Comfort Zone

Although it was not comfortable… not really… It involved Body Pump. As good as it is (mostly) Body Pump is not exactly what you would call comfortable…at lest not if you are doing it right! I am just about getting used to the new track, and I am just about remembering what weights I use…… Continue reading Day 353: Return to the Monday Comfort Zone

Day 332: A tiny bit of unfortunate squat planning

After the weekend, I woke up aching! For the first time in ages, I had achy abs, and arms, and legs… My guess is it is all the circuit training… and the core training… and yes…I am aware I am stating the obvious… Shhh…you and Mr Spock both! It is OK…I know what to do…… Continue reading Day 332: A tiny bit of unfortunate squat planning

Day 311: Just another Manic Monday…

Well, not *that* manic but “just another fairly busy monday” would not scan, I can’t see the Bangles having a hit with that! Manic or not, it was definitely Monday, and this can only mean one thing… Body Pump! Because after running a 10k the previous day, more endurance training is exactly what my muscles needed… maybe……… Continue reading Day 311: Just another Manic Monday…

Day 291: Practise and Pumping

what better way to spend a monday evening than taking a good friend on a whistle stop tour of the local gym facilities? ok…I appreciate that sentence sounds sarcastic…but it wasn’t! I did enjoy myself 😀 we started off with a trip to Steyning (Matt’s gym) to practise for my assessment on sunday. Jen in…… Continue reading Day 291: Practise and Pumping

Day 284: 15kg down

Good morning 🙂 At body pump last night a couple of things happened… 1) I upped my weights on nearly every track and remembered that I should stagger it more… b) I piled up 3 5kg weights and then realised that this was the amount of weight I have lost so far… 15kg feels like…… Continue reading Day 284: 15kg down

Day 262: Resisting the urge to run…

Well, it is not often that I get to write that, I remember the days when I had to force myself to run…and to be honest they do still occur! However, Monday, I was raring to go and run at lunchtime, but I remembered the lesson I learned on Friday about not running too many…… Continue reading Day 262: Resisting the urge to run…

Generally speaking I am not a fan of normality. But when it comes to being well and awake enough to return to my weekly body pump class, then I am all for it 🙂 Just in that context you understand…I don’t want any of you accusing me of being a normal person :-p Loook…Body pump…… Continue reading 255: Normality Returns
