try something new

On Friday, I kept it simple and hard: on the treadmill 18.2km, inclination1, last 2km inclination 1.5, speed 10.6-11.4km/hr, total time 1hr:40min. then I continued with 1hr body pump class, 1hr cycling (30min resistance 8 and 30min resistance 9) for a total of 27km. and then I relaxed with a double dosis of sauna. On Saturday I shuffled and experimented: I started off with 20km cycling, resistane 8, total time 50min. Then I went to an rpm 45min class, before hitting the treadmill for 11km in 1hr, inclination 1, last 2km inclination 1.5, speed 10.6-11.4km/hr. I then tried for the first time a 1hr body attack class (too much jumping around!), followed by a thorough 15min team workout abs. I then went back on the treadmill for 6km in 35min, speed 10.6-10.7km/hr, inclination 1, last 500m inclination 1.5. I finished off this huge session with 30min weight lifting, before falling asleep in the sauna! On Sunday, yet more experimentation: early (06:00) in the morning, at the dunes, I ran 17-17.5km in 1hr:50min. I came back home feeeling cold and exhausted. In the afternoon at the gym: I started off with a sauna session, then hopped on the bike for 27km of cycling in 1hr:12min, resistance 8. I was feeling drained from the morning run, I guess the varying terrain and the cold were a challenge for my body. I tried for the first time a 1hr body step class. Very, very intensive, because of the thousand time that you have to hop up and down the step! I continued with 1hr body pump class, taking it easy with the weights on the bar. And then I finally had some rest with a double dosis of sauna.
