Day 88 - Wednesday 8th September: Gym classes

Gym classes
LBT: 45 minutes
Aquacise: 1 hour
Yogalates: 1 hour

Making the most of a free Wednesday, I packed in three classes today. The usual LBT, followed by Aquacise (a new one on me), and then Yogalates.

There were 10 of us in the LBT class this evening, so a lot busier than usual. The instructor let all the girls finish the squats when they wanted to, but I had to hold it for another count of 16. I beat her! The leg raises were a killer though... so she got me back.

Then to fill in the time before Yogalates, I was persuaded to try out the aqua aerobics class. Again I was the only bloke, this time in a pool of 20 women. It was interesting, but not very strenuous. However I'm sure it was useful, given I'm only 3½ weeks away from a marathon, and better for me than spending an hour in the gym, which would have been a bit too much like hard work.

So - last class for today - an hour's Yogalates to finish the evening. A bit tough in places given the workout my legs had already had in the previous two classes (especially the balancing poses). I still prefer yoga to this version (but that's not available as an evening class).

Running 13.1 miles in memory of Carl

I ran the Silverstone Half Marathon on 15th March 2009. I managed the 13.1 mile course in 2 hours and 4 minutes. Not a bad effort for my first Half Marathon! I returned in 2010 to run it in 1 hour 54 minutes, and plan to do it again in 2011. I decided to run this in aid of The PSC Trust and PSC Support in memory of my brother Carl, who died from liver failure in November 1997.
