Challenge #2: Tell me or show me! When and where do you workout? Are you doing anything different this round? Or is it your first time exercising? Is there anything that you’d like to do, but have not yet done?
I work out at the gym (group fitness classes). So far the plan is Monday = Pump, Tuesday = Combat, Wednesday = Pump, Thursday = RPM, Friday = Pilates. However my schedule is going to change next week when I return to p/t work (Mon-Tue-Wed).
I also exercise weekly at netball. I play GS (goal shooter), and I’ve played for many years.
And I also exercise at home on the treadmill, or with one of Michelle’s exercise DVDs.
And, because I like to mix it up a bit, I’m also planning to train with Motivate Me Personal Training, by doing a group training session for my SSS. They also offer Boxing on a Thurs night, which sounds good to me (more appealling than RPM let me say…)
My weekly training looks like this:
Mon – Pump or ‘Tight Toned Terrific’ DVD (toning)
Tue – Combat or run or ‘Seek & Destroy Cardio Kicker’ DVD (cardio)
Wed – Pump or ‘Tight Toned Terrific’ DVD (toning) and Netball
Thur – Boxing or RPM or run or ‘Seek & Destroy Cardio Kicker’ DVD (cardio)
Fri – Pilates (core & flexibility)
Sat – Super Saturday Session -SSS (group training & either run or DVD)
Sun – rest
This round I am going to the gym MUCH more frequently! It’s nice to actually USE something I’m already paying for. I need to be flexible because we have a toddler and anyone who has kids will know, things don’t always go the way you plan! I really enjoy my pump classes, but once I’m back at work, it will sometimes depend on the traffic as to whether I get there on time to do the class. So that sucks.
This isn’t my first time exercising, I’ve played netball for many years, and last round I ran in 2 fun runs (5km & 4km). But I haven’t been someone who exercises regularly – until now! So I guess you could say I am a first-time serious exerciser.
I’d like to try abseiling soon, I have done it once before in primary school and I vaguely remember enjoying it (I’m not even going to try to count how many years its been!). There is a discount deal on at the moment for a 2-hour abseiling package, so I’m going to do it! Currently trying to
rope in encourage some family members/friends to do it with me!
Another new thing I’d like to do is a PIP training session as my mini milestone. This is a large group training session, and they usually organise something EXTRA special (read: challenging) for the mini milestones.
I can already feel my fitness improving, even though I have missed a couple of sessions (and the whole of Week 1 due to illness). I am actually looking forward to running my 1km time trial again (can’t believe I just said that!).
