Weekending 18 Feb 07

Monday: Work followed by an hour at the Oval. Very busy because it’s a Monday. Rowing machine was free so rowing it was, thought I’d have a go at the 2 Km workout. Eight minutes and ten seconds later  I was finished, I don’t know if this is a good or a bad time but boy did I feel finished after it. What weights I could get on followed and 15 minutes on the cross trainer(200 calories) and that was me done.
Tuesday: Work followed by grouting the bathroom.
Wenesday: Feeling the effects of the rowing, having a night off.
Thursday: An hour at the Oval after work. 40 minutes on the crosstrainer = 500 calories. Rowing, 500 metres with 1 minute intervals went like this, 1:49 2:06 2:01 202 and I covered 2446 metres. The 2:06 session was when I had to stop to adjust my footing as I’d only set one side correctly. Resistance is level 4, which is supposed to be the same as water. Felt like I’d had a good go after this and it’s very time efficient.
Friday: Booked  for Sheila,s spinning class at Europa pools. I’m not looking to set any records on this one, Saturday promises to be a tough day.
Rode out to the Eureka for Breakfast, started raining properly by the time I left and I had no overshoes which wasn’t a smart move. 18 miles.
Sheila,s spinning class was half full but fully booked up on the computer, good class 625 calories burnt, no records broken but pulse went to 180 bpm and the average was 137 for 55 minutes.This includes the streching exercises at the end so would probably be in the high one forties.
Saturday: Mini North West Passage , looks like it’s all uphill from Rochdale.
