Zumba sounds cool - don't think there any classes near me! Going to try and pluck up the courage to go to some kind of class this week!

Well done

You go girl! I did feel a bit self-conscious at first but then I thought 'every journey starts with the first step -I can't expect to do a class as easily as the regulars, I'll do what I can and enjoy myself. I've done well to show up at all' -or something along those lines. The people in the exercise class who do it all so seamlessly once stared off like us, so there!
Try out various ones and stick with what you enjoy and that gives you a good workout. WE CAN DO THIS!

Week 3
Thursday: Walk & Jog: 30 mins.
I have decided to use an interval-training podcast. I went this morning and quite enjoyed it even though I did get a bit out of breath. I felt all revved up and virtuous after the session!
There are 2 running podcasts programmes that are available to download for free from iTunes:
1) Podcasts for running - Couch to 5k. A nine-week programme.
I thought this was very good as the guy uses lots of verbal prompts and ypou know exactly where you are, but I didn't enjoy the music, I found it a bit harsh and acidic!
2) Podrunner intervals -it has 3 programmes: First day to 5K, Gateway to 8K, and Freeway to 10K.
This covers a lot more as you have a programme that can train you up to 10K. The music is not as harsh and it has the beats specifically timed. There are less voice prompts though.
On the whole, either of these progrmmes is excellent. I plan to continue with the Podrunner intervals.

Thursday: Nil
My thighs and shoulders are aching today from yesterday's squats and weights. If this is the price to pay for sending that jiggly thigh fat and those bingo wings packing then it is so worth it!
