my week in food & exercise:
Monday exercise, 6am: First serious morning workout – head to the park with Jay & Harley for 5 min warm up, 15 min interval running, 50m interval running with pushups, squats, jumps (x 6 repeats).
Tuesday exercise, 6.30am: Body Pump class @ gym (with Jay & Neen). I love this feeling!
Wednesday exercise, 6.15am: Jay, Harley & I meet Neen & Ian down the park for a repeat of Monday’s workout – 5 min warm up, 15 min interval running, 50m interval running with pushups, squats, jumps (x 6 repeats)
Thursday exercise, 6.30am: this morning is a struggle as I’m feeling tired but Body Pump @ the gym with Jay & Neen quickly sorts me out. Some of the Aussie Olympic Swim Team is doing a stretching session outside of our workout class (Eamon Sullivan, Geoff Huegill, Andrew Lauterstein & James Magnussen)! Now that’s inspiring!
Friday exercise, 5.30pm: Body Balance @ the gym. It’s much harder than I expected. A blend of yoga, tai chi & pilates. I am twisted & challenged into positions that I didn’t even think could be done! The instructor is nice and helps me through with less-advanced options. Afterwards a couple of class members come up and let me know that it gets easier after about 5 classes. Good to know!
Saturday exercise, 9.30am: Super Saturday Session (SSS) aims at burning a target of 1000 calories….whoa! I do 2kms on the bike, then Jay & I do Body Combat class @ the gym. IT IS HARDCORE. High intensity cardio through combination of shadow boxing and kick boxing. I am red & dripping with sweat when we finish but I’ve blasted 700+ cals! We get home and take Harley out for a walk/run around the harbour. Another 400+ cals burnt and I’m done for the day! Total of 1326 calories smashed!
