I am feeling absolutely over the moon! I feel free, happy and energised! My SSS was a success!

First up was BodyCombat. I have never done Combat before, but I have done martial arts in the past, so it wasn't completely foreign. I had an absolute ball! This would have to be my all-time favourite class now (my second fav being Spin). I loved the energy and absolutely loved feeling like I was doing exercise with a purpose. I roughly burned 650 calories, though forgot to turn on my HRM for the first 5-minutes.

Next was BodyPump. This was the first time I had done the new release and it was a lot of fun! I loaded up my weights a little more than last time - leg tracks 15kg (vs 10kg last time), back 10kg (vs 8kg last time), chest 10kg (vs 8kg last time), biceps 10kg (vs 8kg last time) and triceps 8kg (vs 8kg last time). For my next class I will be increasing my leg and back weights but my other weights are pretty much spot on. Owww the buuuuuuuurn! I roughly burned 400 calories.

Finally was BodyAttack. Again, I hadn't done the new release of this and I'm not so sure whether I like the new version! Half-way through Attack, I was really feeling it. I had to cut down on the jumping because of my knee and ended up doing a fair few of the low-impact options for things like the lunges, but really hit hard on the running moves. This class burned about 700cals.

Dripping with sweat, I looked down at my watch to see I had burned 1750 cals!!! I was SO close to 2000, that I decided to take up the challenge to burn that extra 250!

So I jumped on the treadmill and got myself ready for some intervals! 1-minute on, 1-minute off... Off was a 6.5km/hr walk at 1% incline. On varied from 10.5km/hr - 13.5km/hr running at 1% incline. I reached 3km and looked down to see that I had reached my goal!

2013 calories burned in 3 hours, 19 minutes and 53 seconds. 

It doesn't get much better than that! I think that SSS is going to be a regular one! I had an absolute ball!

Now off to enjoy my function tonight!
