Fitness Report – Week Five

Summary: So the eagle-eyed of you will have noticed that this week I haven’t recorded all that many Fitness Workouts. Sadly I fell ill on Tuesday and thought I would be doing more harm than good if I continued to train. In actual fact, the illness was more of an inevitability: getting little sleep, not eating well and squeezing in five workouts on Monday was fairly stupid. This was the reality check I think I needed early on to remind me to focus on taking care of myself above all else! I’m still not 100% so am minded to pause these reports until I’m recovered and can pick up my routine again.

Moment of the Week: On Saturday night, I went to a house party which ended fairly early into Sunday Morning. My favourite workout class, Pure Fat Burn, was on Sunday morning and half an hour before the start of the class I was still in bed. However I managed to kick my ass out of the house and make it to the class in time! (Although the instructor told me off for not being early, ha!) If that isn’t discipline I don’t know what is.

Notes / Comments

  • Really enjoyed the Pure Fat Burn class on Monday, led by an instructor I’d not met before. The class took a pyramid structure where there were six stock exercises, each of which you had to repeat for 45 seconds. So you do exercise 1 and then take a break, then to exercise 1 followed by exercise 2 followed by a break i.e. 1, 1+2, 1+2+3, …, 1+2+3+4+5+6. This made helped to build your confidence to do the tougher ones towards the end. I was so chuffed as I was able to make it to the end and other people in the class started to drop out. (Ye boi =] )
