The plan was to get up this morning and do another spin session before work. That plan went out the window when I woke this morning feeling extremely tired. So instead I drank the coffee that Mr CJ had left for me, ate my muesli and read the paper. Decided I would do the session after work instead.

Lunchtime - Gym

Wow - two days I've made it to the gym this week. This has to be a record of sorts for me. Today it was a lower body weights session plus ab exercises, consisting of the following:

Swiss ball squats
Stationary lunges
Swiss ball single leg raises
Standing calf raise
Glute machine
Swiss ball crunches
Reverse crunches
Twist crunches

After work - Spin session on hometrainer

Session - 5min wu; 5 x 2min fast (2min RI); 5 x 1min fast (1min RI); 5min cd
Time spent on bike seat - 40 loooooooonnnnnnnngggggggg minutes
AHR - 139bpm; MHR - 170bpm

Legs, especially my quads, felt really tired about 30secs into each interval - it may have been the after effects of the gym workout or just that I really suck at cycling. Turned up my ipod and focused on the music and tried to ignore the pain!

Tomorrow - (am) swim then brekkie with Strewth
(lunchtime) retail therapy with Bec

I love the way you think - including retail therapy into your program!! Speaking of which, I think I need a couple more singlets...
