Weekending 05 Aug 07

Monday: Gym after Work, still not sure about getting in on a spinning class. Need to do some weights whatever happens. I ended up being on the reserve list so had an hour in the gym. Four minutes on the rowing machine had me rowing a kilometre which is an average effort. Louise drags me out the gym saying the desk had told her I was upstairs.
After my whinge about hovering I’m excused hovering but have to do a hill climb as a penance. Fine by me.
Two new girls in tonights class and one of them ends up falling off the bike banging her shins. You don’t normally come back from an incident like that, we’ll just have to see.
640 Calories burnt spinning, 300 in the gym. Hi of 163 BPM which is not a lot these days.
Tuesday: Work, no gym. On call I’ll have to see how it works out. Chinups and pressups. Weight free workout.
Wednesday: Rest day.
Thursday: Barbara,s spinnining class at West Kirby. 677 calories burnt and a max heart rate of 183 bpm on my birthaday of all days. Sheila still has something wrong with her foot so no classes at Europa Pools. Average heartrate for the class was 151 bpm.
Friday: Booked in at West Kirby again. A complete contrast to thurdays class. Yesterday was extremely hard work as there was no fan. Today there was a fan for the whole class. This meant i burnt 649 calories but without the extreme effort and  heat stress of the previous night. In contrast max heartrate was 157 bpm. Spoke to Catharine after the class about the site and she kindly left a comment, thanks.
Saturday: Ride day.
