You might have noticed I’ve been a little quiet about any training in the last few days… usually I start Mondays with an early morning run, but after my disturbed sleep on Sunday night after my 5 hours gardening and 4 hours teaching swimming, I decided rest was needed.
On Monday night I came home and went to bed really early. Managed to clock up 9 hours of sleep and it was great! 🙂
I had thought about running 10k on Tuesday morning, but opted instead for another lie in. 😀
Tuesday night was one session of spinfit: we’re really missing Helen. So much so we were glad to only do one session with Catherine before going upstairs to do Insanity Day 16: Cardio Recovery. I think it’s now 6 weeks without Helen. She was so good, I hope she gets better soon. 😦
Spinfit was good, but Catherine always tends to cut the class short so we had about 35 minutes where I worked hard and 5 minutes of stretching. It’s a bit of a let down when you are used to doing 40-45 minutes and she cuts it short each week.
We did do a cool thing which was standing up on the bike, holding yourself up with no hands… arms out to the side, or arms straight up above your head. I used to always lose balance, but I think I’ve got it now. Only thing is I wish she would make us do it for a bit longer!
After spin was Insanity Day 16, Cardio Recovery again. It’s an odd DVD. Recovering from the Cardio you do, a lot of stretching, and balance work. It’s tough don’t get me wrong, but I can’t help wanting to cut it out! I won’t though.
5 mile run tomorrow morning with Gill again. She’s been off on holiday so it’ll be nice to catch up.
