SRS Team: Everybody was Kung Fu fighting

May

We're halfway through week three and already it's been a great week with Jonathon and Isobel trying Kung Fu, Margaret going to Zumba and POWERHOOP classes, and Nathan, Adam, Kev, Jonathon and Isobel working out at circuit training.

With Yin Yoga and spinning still to come it's all good in SRS. Personally I've been a bit lazy been carrying an injury since playing handball last week. Handball was great fun though, and there's been talk of playing another game already. I'm making my big comeback tonight at the gym and I'll try to end the week on a high with spinning on Friday with the rest of the team.

Circuits

Enjoy the photos, and I'll leave you with a moving story of dedication and willpower from Margaret ...

"I was really feeling like chocolate the other night to the point that I took a chocolate brunch bar out of the box picked up my cup of coffee and as I walked from my kitchen kept saying what about the CTGF to myself so before I got to my lounge I turned around and put the bar back into its box. That was harder than circuits with Kev and that’s saying something because I was hurting after circuits – the only good thing from putting the chocolate bar back was there was no pain afterwards…(well only for a little while!)."

Wow two posts in one day what’s going on? Well my posts are imitating my life at the minute as I did two classes in one day yesterday. Not intentional at all. Was down just to do power hoop, but there was a free place at the Kung Fu taster afterwards so I joined them too.  To mirror what JoRo said in her blog earlier I am feeling sore and stiff now too, four classes done this week already, three to go!  I really enjoyed the Kung Fu taster and am looking into attending a few more classes just to get a better feel for it and see if it is something that I could incorporate into my life. For me the most enjoyable aspect of it was learning the self-defense moves. Obviously I would never like to be in a position where I would have to defend myself, but knowing a few basic moves has definitely made me feel more confident and whet my appetite for learning a few more. We shall see… for now though I’m going to head home, have a bath, go and watch a play then have a good sleep.

I may have overdone it

I woke up this morning aching all over.  After being attacked by Amy in Admissions in the Kung Fu taster session, I joined the Yinyoga class.  We had to hold each posture for five minutes and I hadn't realised how much I had stretched myself until today.  I have Pilates tonight (more stretching) and Dynamic Bodywork tomorrow, which is a combination of dance, yoga and pilates.  I am also going to try to fit in a couple more classes before Friday.  The question is, can you overextend yourself?  Is it better to work through the discomfort or give your body a rest?
