wow, Beeps that's a long gym session!
I go every day but it's normally just for a 45min class (plus 10min walk each way which I enjoy). And sometimes back again at night for a yoga class.
Not sure i'd want to show up if I thought I had all the work you fit in, in front of me though! Great work!

Beeps, are you training for a race? That's the only way I'd do 50 minutes of cardio at the gym. Lol. Nice work, you're dedicated!

I really don't like cardio that much....but, I am pretty bored with my weigh-lifting, too.

What I do like, at my gym, are the step-cardio classes! I like the music. And, because it is a "group dynamic", it feels so much more "social" (even though I do not know anybody else in the class, lol).

So, I go to the gym to do my weights....and that is "solo" - and then, I simply tell myself I only have to do "ten minutes" of the cardio class. That, as soon as I do "ten minutes", because I do not like cardio, I am TOTALLY free to leave! But, of course, ten minutes into the class, I wind up doing the whole thing!! Mind over matter, really.

Actually ALL my workouts start out as being "ten minutes only"....I promise myself that if I make it to the gym, I only have to stay for "ten minutes". And, yeah, usually I get through 45 minutes of weights followed by a 45-minute step class (and then cool-down/stretching after that).

When I am super-time crunched, I will always choose weight lifting over cardio.

Also, I only have to work out 3 x per week when I have these longer sessions....I have ZERO energy to be working out the days in-between, lol.

Cardio, today. My knee was kind of wonky and I decided heavy-lifting was not a good idea.

I'm slinking in on the 9th with my first check-in. I underestimated how sore my foot was so I haven't been exercising.

9: 30 squats

I am travelling for business this week. So, I won't get a workout in until saturday. I did do 35 minutes of heavy-lifting this morning, followed by 45 minutes of cardio-step-class and a 5-minute stretch.

I should have stretched for longer...my back is SUPER sore right now. Sitting in an airplane tomorrow for a long flight won't feel very good.

Saturday will be cardio.
