A successful weekend

I managed to go to the gym both days this weekend. This is a major victory. On Sunday I even went to the boxing class at the gym.

I went in to the class confident in my new level of fitness, knowing that I would be able to do the exercises and would be fine. Ten minutes into the class I was wondering how I was going to make it through the rest of the class. I kept wondering just how out of shape I really was, was I not working out hard enough during my normal workouts?

I pushed through to the end of the class, wimping out on some of the exercises (Body builders/Squat thrusts are evil - no matter what you call them) and ducking out once for a slow stroll to the water fountain and back. I was drenched by the end of class, and very very tired. Today, I'm sore all over, and hurt in places that havn't hurt in a long time.

Today I'm taking the day off from the gym, I'm just going to do some Yoga to stretch out the muscles.

How was your weekend?

You've done fantastic! And just think of all the good the exercise has done for your body! :)

Dh and I took many long walks this weekend. They took twice as long and we could really feel them in our leg muscles because of all the snow here.
