FIGURING OUT THE FIFTIES.... SO THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.......

Yay for Cardio

Wednesdays I just do cardio, nothing too fast or furious just 30 mins of HIIT first thing in the morning.

I miss my cardio, when I HAD to do it I would drag my grumply arse down to the gym and do my morning 20 mins and my nighttime 45 mins using all sorts of tricks to get me through the time.... Ipods, reading posters, watching TV... anything... Even though I would come off the tready or cross trainer feeling AMAZING, ALIVE, AWESOME.. sweaty!!

Now my cardio is restricted and I miss it BAD, I get on the machine and hate watching the time count down, I don't need to use my Ipod, I don't need to count the concrete blocks in the walls, I just watch my heart rate go up and down and enjoy the feeling of working my body..

I love training with weights... no surprise there...

But sometimes I yearn to try something different.....

I remember thinking like this about doing Figure competitions but I definitely want to keep doing them for as long as I can totter on hooker heels, and since I have been wearing 6-8 inch heels for the last 31 odd years that should be for a few more years...

But can a figure competitor do Triathlons???

What about Mountain Climbing???

Outer Mongolian Ice Fishing????

Really the choices are limitless...

Just like life in general....
