October calorie burning challenge!

At The Healthy Body Club we have a challenge going to burn a target amount of calories (set by self) by the end of October. I set myself 8000 cals and boy is it proving to be a challenge however it is helping me get into good training habits for the triathlon!!

Last week I did:
1 x spin class 689
2 x 60 min swim sessions 1745
1 x 30 min brisk walk 184
1 x 20 min vigorous upper body weights 184
Total: 2802
8000-2802 = only 5198 to go!!

This week has not been quite so full on but here is the progress and plans...
Thursday: 1 x 30 min moderate walk 152

Today: 1 x spin class 689 and lower body weights 184
Friday: Early morning 60 min swim fast/slow intervals 437
Sat: rest
Sun: 4 km fun run 367 (??)
Total: 1829

Would anyone like to set a target for themselves to reach before the end of October??

I went to see Becky on Singing Bee the other night- we had a blast but I can't divulge any details until the episode airs.. sorry!!

I have been sent a Body for Life pack with some inspirational DVDs and am feeling another burst of weight training enthusiasm coming! Planning to get back into serious weight training after the triathlon as I am focusing on building my cardiovascular fitness right now. I know that the only way I am going to get lasting results in my body shape is to train with weights.. I have done it before with a lot of success and I'll do it again!!

Congrats to N and N on the safe arrival of their new baby daughter Miya. She's absolutely gorgeous!

Okay, that's enough from me!
