I have recently discovered podcasts. I know I am so behind the times, but really I only just discovered that I can listen to podcasts really easily on my phone!
I’m not sure whether I have expressed it on the blog before but I LOVE ‘The Biggest Loser’ shows, and look forward to the marathons on Sunday mornings on TV- it’s a pity we’re so many series behind but I still love it. Anyway, I recently discovered Jillian Michael’s podcasts. She is one of the trainers on The Biggest Loser, so naturally I was intrigued.
I have listened to about four of Jillian Michael’s podcasts already in the past two days, and found it great inspiration to listen to one on my way to the gym this morning.
Whilst at the gym I did much the same as yesterday- boooring!
I completed the following on the treadmill in preparation for Sunday’s 5K.

Time Speed (Kph)
0-5min 7
5-8min 10.4
8-9min 7
9-13min 10.4
13-14min 7
14-19min 10.4
19-20min 7
20-24min 10.4
24-25min 7
25-28min 10.4
28-29min 7
29-31min 12
31-32min 7
32-33min 12.5
33-25min 6.5

Then completed the 200 Sit Up Challenge for today
Set 1- 9 sit ups
Set 2- 12 sit ups
Set 3- 9 sit ups
Set 4- 9 sit ups
Set 5- 10 sit ups  
Whilst I was completing my sit ups, one of the personal trainers at the gym, who has helped me with my planks and dips in the past, came over and asked whether he was hallucinating or if he saw me at the gym twice yesterday. No hallucination!! I don’t think anyone’s ever really recognised me at the gym before, and certainly not noticed me going more than once a day (yes yesterday was the first time). Score, I am a gym bunny- or on the way to it! I wish I could afford to have a personal trainer for a while, as the guy that I spoke to is so helpful and even in the 10mins I was chatting to him he really made me feel the burn on the PowerPlates a couple of weeks ago!
Off to Body Pump this evening, its my second double workout in as many days, maybe I’ll get spotted again!
