Thumbs up February Exercise Challenge

Let's love ourselves with movement in February!

State your exercise goal and track it throughout the month with this supportive group of fellow exercisers. We'll compile our workout goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

This thread is for fitness and exercise goals. For other weight loss goals, be sure to see our sister thread: February Weight Loss Challenge.

Thanks gardenerjoy for keeping this going! I"m back in for Feb.
My posts will be a bit more wordy than statistical I think. Lets see.
I joined a gym before Christmas, and now i'm your regular gym-junkie and go pretty much every morning to do a strength or cardio class, then sometimes go back at night to do a yoga class. I'm really enjoying it, but my modest goal for the month will be to keep enjoying it. So maybe this will be a bit more monitoring and conscious review of how i'm feeling about it than trying to improve anything.

Target: Attend minimum 6x gym classes per week (if not travelling) and do it consciously so I continue to enjoy it

Feb 1: Spin class. 45min. 22.1km. 315kcal. This Friday morning class with Kristy teaching is the toughest class of the week, but also the one I come out of feeling the best. Today lived up to expectations! It's my ambition for the next few months to get fit enough to do the class the way she calls it (resistance and speed levels). Today was closer than previous, so must be getting a bit fitter

Feb 1: Spin + yoga classes
Feb 2: Strength 411 class - Done. The bodyweight exercises are feeling easy these days (pushups, planks etc), so i'm cranking up the free weights for the other exercises. 20kg kettlebell today for deadlifts, up from the usual 16kg, which was fine. This class is supposed to be 4x leg exercises, 1x arm exercise, 1x core exercise, rinse and repeat - hence the name. Probably more fun than hard work today, but that's my target!!

Feb 1: Spin and yoga
Feb 2: Strength 411 and pilates
Feb 3: rest

Went back to the gym for a pilates class after the strength class yesterday - it was the first time they've run a classroom pilates as normally it's just yoga or pilates reformer with the equipmnent (that you pay more for, and i'm too stingy to do that!). It was 'quite good'. I'll try it again but haven't quite made up my mind whether i'll be a regular for that one.
Today is a rest day. I"ve done heaps the past few weeks and feel like I need a break. My glutes and hammies are pretty stiff from yesterdays session though.

Had the rest yesterday, but it definitely didn't make me feel all refreshed for today and i wasn't really in the mood to kill myself in spin. Anyway, did it, it's done.
