Ooooh! My legs ache today,

But in a good way

Went to first post natal exercise class at the hozzie today. Every new mum can have 10 sessions. Really enjoyed it. Basically 15 min aerobic warm up, 25 mins on the cv equipement and 20 mins mat work. The highlight was ny first r*n in a year!!! 10 mins on the dreadmill

Wooohoooo! First proper r*n since baby was born  1.5 miles! Not a lot, but it's a start.

Nothing prolapsed.

Nothing burst open.

I didn't wee myself.

well done

Great news Samster! Especially the bit about not weeing yourself, that's always a good sign.

It is the return of Garrow's Law tonight. A programme I always find depressing, despite the presence of Rupert Graves. Raffles likes it though, so I shall have no excuse to avoid doing my course work while it is on. Unless I can find someting in the next few hours

A day without weeing yourself is always good!

lol Yeo  and thanks all, it was great to be running again. For the moment I am going to concentrate on exercising 3 times per week: Buggy circuit training on Wed, Post Natal Exercise Class on Thurs and a r*n on Sunday plus I'll make sure I get out walking as many days as possible. Then after xmas, I'll introduce a second and maybe a third run and begin working towards a spring 10k. That's the plan.

Hello, I'm new (and slightly bored at work on a Friday evening)!

So I'm guessing this is place to share training etc. I'm slowly gearing up for my first 5k after starting running about a month ago & looking for virtual training buddies!

So this week:

Monday, core ball. dance class, 2k treadmill

Wednesday my first ever circuits class (made running seem easy!)

Thursday Cardio Kick class - not done this in a while and managed a higher intensiity than I remembered

Plan for the weekend
Saturday: Wk 4 of Couch to 5k (NHS) (30mins run/walk intervals)
Sunday:  Wk5 (pt1) C25K

Goal - run 5k (no walking) in January.

Welcome Beccy.

Yes, we share training on here but also indulge in long chats about nothign in particular and generally increas the smut and irreverance level of the forum. Feel free to join in!

That's a busy week on the exercise front. What's Cardio Kick? Anything like Body Combat?

28/11/2011 at 11:09

yeah - anything to alleviate a dull workday

Cardio Kick is a bit like an aerobics class with punching and kicking in the routine. And built in are intervals of press-ups, lunges, fast jab punches, sprints etc. And it's a 60 min class so always a bit of a challenge.

This week plan is kinda similar, but ends with the third run of wk 5 C25K which is a 20 min run with no walking - looking forward to smashing that.

29/11/2011 at 07:53

Go for it!

Meanwhile, I'm off to find out where my nearest Cardio Kick class is...
