Welcome back to my gym series. If you’re new to this series, or even my blog, then you can check out previous posts here. This week I went to two classes and did a bit of free gyming.
On Tuesday I did a body pump class which I enjoy doing because it really works out arms, shoulders and legs all in one. For my first pump class I used the smaller weights because I had no experience with weights. I refer to the weight plates by their colour, so the yellow plates are the lightest and then the blue ones are the next ones up. For this class I decided to use the yellow weights for the warm up, then yellow and blue weights for the leg exercises and then just the blue for the arm exercises. Going up even the small weight I did might not seem that big a deal but I feel glad that I pushed myself to that weight and pushed myself to do as many reps as I could to keep up with the instructor. I still can’t do push-ups but that’s something I’m working towards.
On Thursday I decided to free gym whilst my friend was in a class, I couldn’t bear to do another combat class just yet. I went on the bike for a while (as is normal) and the decided to try the treadmill. I wasn’t brave enough to actually run, but I had the speed as fast as I could sustain walking fast. Honestly I was just proud of myself to have gone on a treadmill alone and done something for a length of time.
Friday was another class day, this time it was a playground class that consists of playground type activities. It was basically obstacle courses with mats and steps, weights etc where only your hands could touch the mats and feet on the steps etc. It was during this class that I had a slight breakdown and felt like giving up, I will go more into that in next weeks gym update.
That’s all I have to say about that week, it’s kind of only a short update post. I don’t feel I really achieved anything during this week. I’ve already started writing what is the next weeks post, but is actually this week in reality. I’m going to try and get these posts up more closely to the week finishing, perhaps a Sunday, rather than writing a week behind because I am so bad at writing posts in advance and scheduling them.
