Friday, 28 January:

15:06 rowing on Concept 2, 2:42 for 500 meters, 36 s/m, 2,606 meters, for a projected total of 5,376 meters
60 minutes weight
45 minutes elliptical, random intervals, resistance at 8, half backward

Once again, slowing down on rowing to correct my form, based on my last "critique" by the just-out-of-university crew team member whose workout schedule at the gym sometimes overlaps with my own. This is so frustrating. I need to practice, not on the machine, and not when I'm watching the clock for my workout before hurrying home to get online for work.

I did in fact go to the bellydance class! Talk about a core workout. Who needs crunches when you have bellydance? I think my obliques will be sore for the next week.

Plan for today is for some leg strength stuff. We'll see, I might bump it to tomorrow and take a rest day today instead.

Great work at the BD class, Jessica! Will you go again?

Friday - gymn
15 mins on rower. Just rowing for the **** of it. 25-30 spm.
Single-legged deadlifts. 1 x 10 8kg. 2 x 10 10kg.
Yoga & stretching. Downward dog was harder today. Because of the DL on Wednesday, I suppose.

I can feel it today. Tomorrow is a rest day and Sunday is bowling.

Saturday - a rest day

Just back from half an hour's brisk walking in the bright sunshine. Let's call it a mile and a dollop of vitamin D. Parts of the shore which don't catch the sun are frozen hard but there were lots of birds feeding and posturing. Spring can't be far away.

Tomorrow is bowling. Depending on the amount of exercise that comes to (and I'm being pretty relaxed about this), Monday will either be gymn or rest. I really think getting the balance right between amount of exercise, quality of diet and sleep is key to me losing weight. And I am, at present.

Good for you, Jessica. Also, I'm curious, what kind of music did they use in the class? Was it the usual up-tempo dance music, or did they use traditional Middle Eastern music, or maybe contemporary Middle Eastern pop music?

Saturday, 29 January:

45 minute spin class
60 minute Pilates class

The gym was quite busy this morning. All the shut-ins are fleeing the monstrous snow banks -- on the sidewalks, it's hip-high -- and taking refuge in spin, zumba & Pilates.

Sunday, 30 January:

15:06 rowing on the Concept 2, 2:30 for 500m, 41 s/m, 2,858 meters, for a projected total of 5,840 meters
60 minutes weights
45 minute spin class

I was the first & only person in the gym at 7 AM on Sunday, but by the time classes began two hours later, the place was again jampacked. Lots of new people in class, which meant we did a lot of sprints.

Sunday - bowling. Have crocked my L knee and hip so tomorrow will be a rest day. I'll be continuing to strengthen those muscles when I get back to the gymn. It is very frustrating that this happens from time to time. I haven't got to the bottom of it yet.

Saef, it was a mixture of Arabic music and pop music. I have to say the highlight was the Arabic remix of "Rock the Casbah."

Sat Jan 29: 25 min walk with dog.

Sun Jan 30: 30 min walk with dog.

"The crowd caught a whiff of that crazy Casbah jiiiiiiiiive!"

A most excellent iPod song for the gym.

Monday, 31 January:

60 minutes arc trainer, resistance at 9, intervals
60 minutes circuit training, a little emptier than usual as people skip class to rush to the store for the usual things one needs during a storm: bread, milk & alcohol.

Oh, no. It's stuck in my head:

"The King told the boogie-men 'you have to let that rāga drop.
The oil down the desert way has been shaken to the top.'"
