Almost at the half way mark

Week 5 of the 12 week challenge is almost over. I've managed to get myself to the gym every day, and twice a day on work days. It was a real struggle to get out of bed this morning, but I managed it. Once I was up, it was easy enough to get to the gym, so it seems I've developed a habit. I'm hoping that I can keep it up, at least a few times a week, once the freezing Canberra mornings set in. I'll be doing the Global Corporate Challenge then, which should help me to maintain my motivation.

This morning, given my reluctant start to the day, I decided not to push myself by running. I did the "Fat Burner" program on the treadmill and then headed off to work. This evening, I did my weights program as planned. I felt really strong and managed to get everything done. After I finished, there was time for a quick treadmill session, so I spent 10 mins there. I tried a few intervals of 11 km/h and managed them, as they were half the length of the intervals I did the other day.

I've booked into the RPM class tomorrow, so now I'm committed. I'll get there early and do another cardio workout for the points. Other than that, I don't have any exercise plans. I'm looking forward to the weekend. I really feel like I need the rest.
