OK, so I may not have burned a zillion calories at PUNCH yesterday, but my arms are telling me about it all in great detail today; forearms and triceps, hello!  DOMS! That, along with the dodgy wrist meant I ditched the Swiss Ball jack-knives today for fear of the wibblyness in my wrist meaning I wouldn't be able to support myself properly. I swapped them for the utterly appropriate oblique crunches, 'cause, yeah, they're totally equivalent (*cough*).

I am really very very tired today, I only got 471kcals out of gyammage (usually get just under 500 for the same time spent) and I'm absolutely knackered.  The tube journey this morning involved falling asleep instantly and waking upvery grumpy when I had to change at Kennington because my lovely Bank train had morphed into a Charing Cross one.  One more weights session this week, one more cardio one on Sunday, a massage tomorrow and I'll dial it down next week.  It's been lots of weeks since I had a gentle week without being ill from those dodgy beans and I think my body would like a bit of a rest now. Plus, it's skiing the week after next and I don't want to be totally shattered for that!

...which reminds me, I must get some goggles!

  1. Where abouts are you off to for your skiing? I'm very jealous! Have always wanted to try a skiing holiday xxx

  2. lol, I'm feeling your pain... though perhaps more so (not that it's a competition!!)

    I'm aching in my triceps, upper back, upper rectus abdominis, obliques and forearms!!

    bloody great boxercise class but didn't realise it would leave me hurting so much - and I thought I'd be okay because I lift reasonably heavy weights?! How wrong was I!!


  3. You just don't expect to get DOMS after a cardio class if you lift weights, do you? Definitely shows us we don't use all of the muscles in the same ways perhaps when we're lifting, pushing or pulling weights ;o)

    Skiing is in Wengen (Switzerland) and I'm kind of nervous about it as I've ony skied once before and that was 11 years ago under not the greatest circumstances so I hated it! I'm sure it'll be great this time, but there's always that tiny niggling worry.
