JUNEATHON

With thanks to Jogger Blogger for the special dispensation. (I always was the irritating teacher's pet type.) :)

My own special (do some exercise every single day in June) Juneathon has started with a BANG!

1st June
A fabulous 30min of yoga - stretching the parts that really haven't been stretched in a while. Weight-loss and upping the fitness mean I can now touch my nose to my knee in some of the sitting stretches (v. exciting, honest!).

But now for the BIG NEWS - 2nd June
I used the elliptical machine today for 90 minutes & I didn't die of boredom.

About 8-9 miles
distance thing only worked for the last 11min - typical.

But did 1.2 miles in that time... but I think I was faster 'cos I could see the distance ticking up...ah the joy of psychology.

First 60 min on resistance 2 with 1kg weights on each wrist (to help with the martyrdom); next 30 min on resistance 1 with no weights... thank god.

NO PAIN AT ALL, NOT EVEN A TINY TWINGE

So I'm off to wash (am v v icky) and then make lunch for a friend. All delightful.

Happy Juneathon everyone.

Happy Juneathon!

Well done on using the elliptical trainer for 90 minutes, I think that would kill me :-)

Well done on the work outs :-P and also staying pain free.

This Juneathon thing seems to be gathering some speed.
