Anyway back on to tonight gym session….music I have to say sucked in there dark exercise room..blinking jedward video started as I started on the cross trainer, so that was a bad bad start…need to sort out my Ipod and get some running music on there, saying that  have on my PC some of Audiofuel running  stuff so think I will give that a go…need to run longer 2…..

Gym….Here we go again

by on Dec.15, 2010, under Fitness

Me and my other half Kerry joined a gym (I use to be a member off a rather naff gym a few years ago), I done both my inductions, so tonight I want off on my own to do my Cardio routine, which is….

  • 15 Min on the bike
  • 10 Min on the cross trainer
  • 10 Min on the treadmill – manage 1.6K in 13 minutes about 5 minutes was walking on warm up/cool down
  • 10 Min on the rowing machine

I got the time wrong on the bike and only did 10 minutes…opsy and I only managed 5 min on the rowing machine, but I was knackered, will do better next time…honest guv ;-) oh and all the above was done in the dark room, only UV lights and loud music…quite fun

So not to bad for my first real trip the the gym, will try the pool next time…they have a 15 meter pool so looking forward to jumping in after getting all hot and sweaty …….

Until next time……
