I've had a huge week of exercise. This is what I've done (not counting when I take Moose for a walk).
Saturday - gym: half hour cardio and half hour resistance
Sunday - gym: half hour cardio and 45 minutes resistance
Monday - gym: 15 minutes cardio and half hour resistance, plus one hour aquafit session
Tuesday - gym: half hour cardio and half hour resistance
Wednesday - one hour deep water aqua
Thursday - gym: 45 minutes cardio, plus one hour aquakick session
Friday* - gym: half hour cardio and half hour resistance
I've now tried all the aqua sessions offered at the local pool, except pregnancy and Fifties Forward! The cost of these classes is covered in my gym membership. The two I enjoyed the most and felt I got the most benefit from were the deep water and the kickboxing ones, so I'm going to try and work in one of each most weeks from now on.
Using the pool is so different in winter compared to when I was training in summer. Then I'd just get out of the pool, wrap a towel around me and head home for a shower. No chance of doing that now!
*Normally Friday is my rest day, but I missed a gym session on Wednesday and needed to fit it in to meet my challenge of six sessions this week. I missed a session because I had to take Jake to the hospital with stomach pains in the middle of the night. After blood tests, chest xrays and morphine they'd got on top of the pain but couldn't find anything wrong. Appears to have been a one-off thing because he's fine now. We got home at 4.30am - he slept all day and got to miss school, I got three hours sleep and was only an hour late for work! I suppose it makes a change from going to the ER with rugby injuries.
Despite all that exercise I only lost 100 grams this week, but I'm figuring I added a fair bit of lean muscle.
Forecast for the weekend doesn't look too bad, so I may be able to fit in my 50km bike ride on Sunday.
