One of my aims for the month was to go to Body Combat once a week, tonight was that night and yes I managed to go…woo hoo! It’s an early enough class – 6-7pm and from previous experience running is not really an option for me afterwards. So I had a grand plan that I’d get to the gym early and do my run first…yeah right, I ended up with 5 mins spare before the class started so I ran 0.5 miles. The class was brilliant, the guy who runs it is a bundle of energy and enthusiasm and can’t help but get you motivated, think I’ll feel it tomorrow though!

At the end of the class I hit the treadmill again but my body was saying a big fat no  and my head just wasn’t in it so I managed another 0.5 miles before giving up. I went for a swim instead (first one of 2016!) but again by ~5 lengths in my arms were feeling the burn and my body was screaming no! So I battled on until I’d done a measly 16 lengths and then hit the sauna…that bit was nice 🙂
