weekending 14 Jan 07

Tuesday: Tina,s spinning class at the Oval. First one of the year and a surprise in store. 775 Calories burnt a new record for me. Probably helped by having a bit more resistance in than level 1. 750ml of water didn’t last the full class but it was a couple of minutes over as we ended up doing two sprints. One was to Jump by Girls Aloud not content with this we ended up doing the second choice as well, this involved a sprint for a minute that was more like three. The heartrate was above 150 BPM for most of the class with 170 BPM for some of the routines. Max was 177 BPM but it could have been higher. I’m breathing heavily at this level and sweating profusley.
I’m still counting calories 5 minutes after the class has finished. Some new faces in there, must be new years resolutions kicking in. Hope they keep it up.
Wednesday: CTC ride to Halkyn, written up elswhere.
Friday: A few light weight, nothing heavy.
Saturday: 100 calories on the turbo trainer. Pulse up to 150 BPM then a fitness test on the new Crane Sports Heartrate monitor. Tried out a few of the Weight Free exercises from the Mens Health magazine. Need to get a routine sorted as I’m not settled at anything at the moment.
Sunday: Work = no ride. Maybe another turbo session
