Body Attack

I'm really enjoying Body Attack. I love being able to do it. I still take the low impact option for some of the exercises, and I wimp out on some of the abs work, but I'm definitely improving. For the first time I did some bouncing on the knee lifts and I'm starting to get the hang of the sideway single knees. If they called it "hop sideways" I would have gotten it sooner.

I'm pretty coordinated, but today I felt particularly klutzy when we were supposed to raise both arms while doing knee repeaters. I'm going to have to practise that one at home! I just couldn't get the arms and legs working together.

My knees were a little tired, so I kept a few of the moves low deliberately, as opposed to not being able to keep up with the high impact option. I'm really keen to do Body Attack, but I don't want it to get in the way of my running!

Tomorrow I have my PT session with Krissi, and there's a Body Balance class in the evening. I've been really happy with my exercise program lately - lots of variety, which is keeping me interested. I've got the Group Outdoor Fitness Challenge coming up, and Dragon Boat racing, and Spring into Shape. It's all looking good. :-)

We definitely have to arrange to meet at Spring Into Shape - okay! I'm doing the 4km.

I loved Body Attack too (damn that ankle of mine) but it was the "supermans" that would get me everytime.
