Back at the gym again and this time I headed to the gym a bit before balance to get in 20 mins on the cross trainer before doing balance.
It was interesting trying to use the cross trainer, since most of the instructions are in Dutch……ugh. But I kept pressing buttons until finally I got it working the way i wanted. I did 8 mins or so on level 10, then I started doing intervals to get my heart rate right up…….20 secs at level 18, then 40 secs at level 6. I did that for a while till eventually I just did the last 4 mins (before balance) at level 10 again. I was a good effort to start off with, but I think I need to raise the bar soon to get good results.
Balance was the latest release which I haven’t done yet. Now this is one Les Mills class where they don’t seem to use many English words, but it’s easy enough to follow along visually. I really needed the stretch as my body is so tight and muscles are painful. I wish I could get to more balance classes but there seems to be only 2 classes I can get to, but that’s only if Alexander doesn’t want to do balance aswell. Ah, so that’s what it’s like to be a normal participant again! I’m so used to doing 5 or more balance classes per week.
Tonight Alexander will be doing combat, so I plan to go in a bit earlier and do my own workout and I’m umming and ahhhing over the pilates class that’s on eariler. My core strength is pretty trashed and I don’t want to be too sore for the upcoming BBQ at John’s this weekend (which will include some Les Mills).
