Ì should go for a run but it’s awful wet out there. And my legs are damn sore. I’m thinking of going to the gym and doing a bit of a circuit instead – that way I can break the running up with some rowing and weights work. I just need to get motivated.
Yesterday, I went to have a chat to a personal trainer. I figure it might help get things revved up a bit. I’m quite impressed with this guy. He does a complete body assessment and then designs a program based on that. I’ve booked in to get it done on Wednesday. I like that he talked about stuff like taking a holistic approach to fitness and weight loss being a result of that, as well as improving run efficiency etc rather than promising some dramastic weight loss. I figure if I can stay injury-free then it’s worth the investment.
This week is going to be insanely busy – on Monday I supposedly have a job interview (they rang me to arrange it and said they’d email the details but I never got the email). I’m not even that interested in the job since it’s long term, maybe even permanent. Since I’m planning on going overseas for 3 months next year (all going well), I’m not looking for permanent work really.
Tuesday I have more laser hair removal (the first session didn’t seem to do much and I still feel all beardy — and there will be no photos… I don’t think you can even SEE the hair but I know it’s there). After that, Japanese lessons.
Wednesday – fitness assessment.
Thurday – root canal. Oh joy!
I think there are going to be some very early morning workout sessions.
Oh yeah, since Andy now has my exercise bike (it was a real logistics exercise last night getting this big, heavy bike into the back of the FestivaI need some ideas on warming up when I do weights at home. I figure putting on some music and dancing like a wild thing could work (in the privacy of my own room of course).
