My First Spin Class

My First Spin Class

Tonight I finally made it out to an indoor spinning session with Speed River Cycling Club. I was a little worried because I don’t have a stationary type bike trainer and I wasn’t sure how it would work out on rollers. I decided not to clip in… which turned out to be a good move since I did slip off the trainer 3 or 4 times. There were a couple of disadvantages to using rollers but I would consider them ...

2013 Pre-season Progress Report

So it’s February, 2013 already. My weight is still up a kilo from Christmas and the one energy bar to rule them all. But I’m still training.

I’m into week 9 of p90X. To be honest, I didn’t follow week 8 since it was a rest week that included yoga and cardio. I really hate yoga and the p90X cardio is not that challenging, so instead I’ve been spinning and doing Bob Harper’s ultimate cardio workout, ...

Biking in the bedroom

Biking in the bedroom

After a mild December, the snow seems to have finally arrived and it’s getting deeper… And it’s getting colder. I had planned on running all winter, but have taken the last 2 days off due to knee pain. The roads and sidewalks around here seem too treacherous and I’m afraid of slipping and pulling something. I also just had an MRI on my right knee for a nagging injury and am awaiting the results, so I thought I’d be responsible ...

P90X Update 1

So I’ve just completed Week 1 of P90X. It’s been cool to change things up so much after getting into a bit of a rut with my exercise program. Overall, I think P90X is pretty good… except for the yoga.

Day 3
Shoulders and arms – pretty straightforward. First time through, so I was discovering my thresholds and setting some benchmarks for next time. I used weights that challenged me at the 12 to 15 rep level.

Day 4
I’ve always been kinda ...

On the run again : )

20121211-235812.jpg

For the past two months I have been running around 6km almost every day. Sixteen days ago I ran my longest distance yet… just over 9km. I felt fine too. At least until after I got home, then I was noticing some discomfort in my lateral right knee. It got worse overnight and I awoke the next day with enough pain to realize that it was not an injury I could ignore. Prior to ...

P90X (the challenge is on)

I feel like I needed to change things up a bit. I have been doing Bob Harper’s Pure Burn strength workout for at least year now, mixing it up with a couple of his other workouts. I had heard a lot about P90X and thought I’d give it try.  I’m determined to stick out the 90 days and see what affect it has… I even took my ‘before’ photos : ) First impressions are positive.

Day 1 was pretty tough. I thought I ...

12 months later

This time last year I had broken my leg in 2 places while paying hockey. It was the first winter of my freshman year of ‘getting fit’, and I was determined to make the best of my situation. Every two days I did  as much as I could of Bob Harper’s Pure Burn Strength workout video with my leg in a cast. I was doing the upper body exercises on a stool, or standing on one leg, and I managed ...
