QUICK SESH

Last night, the last thing I felt like doing after a long day at work was hitting the gym. Luckily I had made plans earlier in the day to go with Steve so I couldn’t back out of it. I decided that a quick session was better than no session, and devised a circuit that would take me about 30 mins and include running and abs. I keep saying that I have flabs at the moment rather than abs (Steve called it a much ruder word!) this needs to change before bikini season!! Note to self, overall diet NEEDS to improve after the marathon- I am currently tucking into everything I see!

This circuit had me dashing between the treadmill and the mat- a little embarrassing. This workout could easily be done in the park by adapting the moves that need equipment!

Quick Cardio and Abs Circuit

Run 2 minutes
Plank 30 seconds
Run 2 minutes
40 bicycle crunches
Run 2 minutes
Left side plank 30 seconds
Run 2 minutes
Right side plank 30 seconds
Run 2 minutes
30 crunches on exercise ball
Run 2 minutes
Plank 30 seconds
Run 2 minutes
20 obliques right side
Run 2 minutes
20 obliques left side
Run 2 minutes
20 Weighted crunches with medicine ball
Run 2 minutes
40 side to sides, legs raised, with medicine ball

I was sweaty and tired by the end of it, and my flabs hurt today, in a good way!! Whilst at the gym there was a ‘Spartan Workout’ going on, it looked hardcore! It reminded me that I do not take advantage of the classes available at the gym, and have vowed to myself that I will start going to 2 classes a week after the marathon, including spinning once a week. I have only ever done one spinning class before about 6 years ago, so I’m not really sure what to expect. Might need to practise a bit on the stationary bike before the class. In cycling related news, I have signed up to do a relay triathlon with 2 friends in the June! I am doing the cycling part (I’m the only one with a bike!), 15miles and I am scared!
