well done seren

4 hours in the uni library, 1/3 of an assignment done

27/01/2013 at 20:49

I went to bed this afternoon...but I didn't go to sleep

My bum is much better today...only hurts when going from lying to sitting now. (and that has nothing to do with the staement above!)

Went to another gym for a try out this morning...not as big as last week's and a bit more expensive but they will let me park my car there for free during the day and it's only 10 mins walk from one of the stations I use, so I think I'm going to go for it.

So I did 90mins of CV work, weights and stretching, then a half hour swim

Finished the weekend off with a 10 mile run this evening...I think ultra traing is underway!

Oh, I changed my gym membership on Friday.  I was at David Lloyd paying a large sum per month for Family Schmunks.  Now I am at another gym and what I was paying for myself at David Lloyd will pay for me and Mr Schmunks at the new gym.  A total saving of almost £90 per month

My training starts tomorrow.  I am going back to basics and starting couch to 5k .  You just can't rush these things

Mine is a lot more expensive than my old one because my old one was through work and I paid for it before I paid my tax, so worked out at around £25 a month! But they have closed to two closest to home and the one round the corner from the new office is scummy, so time for a change.

I'm only joining on a 3 moth contract though because we get our new bonus packages at work in May and I want to see which gym they offer this year. If I don't like it, I'll sign up for 12 months where I am but if it looks ok, I'll swap as it's bound to be cheaper.

I have a very good deal with my gym and I pay £27 a month, no pool but it has all I need there and I have a pool membership in Stoke Mandeville for £20 so not too bad there either

Had a lovely run this evening, round the lanes with my headtorch, gradually increasing time/distance and did 50 mins concentrating on light contact and high cadence, my calfs know I have worked but I am currently niggle free ... I am cautiously optimistic

Ooh pretty colours. Lovely 

Morning all. Sorry to hear about your fall Cas, but your running sounds like it's going well. Are you racing this year?

SEREN!!! You star! Lovely peebee. And top training/librarying everyone else.

Yesterday's run was ace. I did 16 miles and had the most amazing sunshine, blue sky and no fecking ice and snow! Hurrah!!

Day off work today to take number 2 daughter for hospital appt and then meet the personal trainer chappy to show me the ropes (literally) with the TRX things. Yes Mouse, Meldy is spot on. I'm hoping to improve my core.... operation 'pwoarr core* 

I have a great gym with a 50m pool (cough) For a long time I've only been using my membership for the yoga classes (which are amazing) so I've given myself a kick up the bottom to use it a bit more.

I pay £30 a month........but get swim, sauna   loads of fitness classes, squash and my local sports cebntre or can use the other 7 in the borough........

I am geting my moneys worth at the moment but will cancel when i have had enough. 

back still hurting.hubby said black ice on the roads so no roadbike debating whether to run, swim or go back to bed as had a really crap nights sleep......i think bed is winning 

28/01/2013 at 12:36

black ice for me at the station. not good!

sounds like a good deal seren. i'm not a gym member myself. not convinced i have the staying power and not a fan of gym machines. swimming is a different matter, perhaps if i have a good 6 months of running behind me i might reconsider, although getting home from work about 7pm means there isn't time to run AND swim in the same day

unless you run to the pool


28/01/2013 at 15:17

true, but then there's the issue of running back... who knows, it's always a possibility

Never mind Seren .... its only a day

I have actually managed to 'click n collect' at Tescos this time round which must have saved me a nanno second somewhere, getting there and back at schools time was not my wisest move

Core & weights session done at the gym and I am back in  my pyjamas again 

28/01/2013 at 17:53
I was going to use a free pass at the scummy gym round the corner from work but then the posh gym rang with an even better offer and improved on it during the call so I'm heading there now

I went to tescos tonight whilst son was in hockey and the advertsing hording then smashed into my car and then off down the road........I managed to grab it and hold it until a staff memeber came and put it somewhere safe........where he should have put it 5 mins earlier when the wind had already moved it........

so a crease and dent in my drivers door

and then after no training today we had our weekly squash game and my hubby won his first ever set.........I only won 3-1 today

I have given details.mainly because i wanted to check the rest of them and put them inside if needed....that one couldn't have been weighted properely.........

I know that they say that parking is at your own risk..but they have sent my details onto their insurers......

Parking certainly is at your risk but buildings and hoardings are their responsibility

Mitten should be able to give you the low down on that one if you get any problems
