Guessing that's a fancy way of saying metabolic conditioning class. 15x different exercise stations, 1x minute each, move round and repeat twice, warm up and group exercises to finish. All good except I somehow managed to fall off the rowing machine!!! Pulled the handle at a bit of an angle in an overly-enthusiastic way and keeled off sideways on to my bottom. At least it gave me a few seconds 'rest' whilst I hauled myself back on!!

Looking dodgy for the gym tomorrow morning as I think i'll have to drive in to the office (I normally work from home) which takes 90min, so it's going to be a bit of a tardy start if I gym first unfortunately. Could go at night, but can't imagine having the same enthusiasm for that (won't be doing Valentine-like stuff anyway cos the hubsters away, so guess it's an option to ponder.....).

Week 2 Target officially achieved. 19 visits to the gym so far this month, plus a day hiking, and a couple of exercise-walks with hubby that i've not mentioned before. Not bad
Got to the gym instead of the office this morning after all Core class on a Thursday is virtually 'rest day' for me. It's only 30min and not too tough. Got a nice dark-pink rose from Jim - ok, i'll be honest, it was from The Gym, and a card from an unknown admirer - ok, i'll be honest, it was 99.99999% likely to be from hubby

Back to back spin with Kristy this morning and i'm completely stuffed now. Definitely the class(es) of the week that's most improving my fitness. Shock horror she's away for the next two weeks though, and i'm away the week after that - not good as I wanted to do those classes as training for a tough Easter trek trip.

Weights class this morning. Fairly cruisy apart from the lunges were tough on the glutes. Still loving my morning workouts
Rest day tomorrow I think, unless I wake up early and feel like booking a last-minute class which is a bit unlikely since we've got an afternoon and evening of drinking at a music festival ahead!

This is pretty funny (or not really, I guess). I went for a 'proper' walk around a local lake. I haven't walked so far in one go for a long time and the back of my thighs/calves were destroyed! You would have thought I'd run a marathon, but no, it was ~2 miles! Some of the trails were quite rough and steep and I wasn't wearing the right shoes but even so, it was pitiful! I think I need to do that more often...

hey Newlyn, I bet some of that weight gain you saw yesterday was some water retention from your 2mile walk if your leg muscles were hurting afterwards. They're just doing their thing repairing themselves so it would come off again soon. Nice work!

Feb 1: Spin and yoga
Feb 2: Strength 411 and pilates
Feb 3: rest
Feb 4: Spin and yoga
Feb 5: Strength Irn
Feb 6: Spin and yoga
Feb 7: Core

WEEK 1 = 10 Classes (target 6)
Feb 8: Spin (Kristy) then yoga
Feb 9: 20 mile hike (88 F temp!)
Feb 10: rest
Feb 11: Strength Irn + yoga
Feb 12: Spin + Barre + 90 min speed walk
Feb 13: MetCon1 + yoga
Feb 14: Core

WEEK 2 = 9 Classes (target 6)
Feb 15: Spin + Spin (both Kristy)
Feb 16: The 411
Feb 17: yoga
Feb 18: Spin

All on plan. i'm finding my legs are tiring before the lungs in spin these days, so maybe need to do more cardio rather than strength? Or just suck it up and go faster!

Clocked up 7x classes for the week already, so Week 3 target complete
Just booked in for a long walk with the walking club on Saturday - it's 44km, so 27 miles - and also a bit of a journey on trains and ferries to get there, so it'll be a long day but looking forward to it!

My February Goal is 240 mins. of lifting.
4th = 30 m
8th = 30 m
11th = 30 m
14th = 30 m (total of 120 m) - Half way to Goal!
18th = 30 m
20th = 30 m --- Today is my birthday and I am wishing that the balloons make lifting a litter lighter today!
