Comments:
I am feeling very good after today's workout. Hopefully I will have enough energy to carry on throughout the rest of the day. I forgot to bring gym clothes today, but at least I wore track pants to school:) I am very excited. Even though this Fitness Club did not turn out very well this year, I have a clearer vision of where I need to be and where God has called me. In terms of CCF, this vision that I have will have to wait 16 months as I do PEY in Seattle. During that time, I know that God will refine the vision He has for me and shape me into a man after His own heart.

In preparation of dragonboat season, I decided to haul myself to the gym:)

I did some strength training for about half an hour to 45 minutes. I was feeling fairly tired (should eat more next time:p). But the workout was good, intense, and felt refreshing.

Then I ran on the treadmill for 15 minutes. Every 5 minutes I would "sprint". Jog: 5 mph, Run: 8 mph. The "sprints" would last 1/2 minute.

Ok, motivate, energize, revitalize --> focus, concentrate --> move!

Was up late working on presentation so I was fairly tired. Anyhow, this is what I did:

Hart House Circuits (1 set of Introductory Level II)

Abs (3 sets)
- Crunches (12 reps)
- Plank (1 min)
- Leg raises (12)

I felt very great after, despite the entire workout only being 30 minutes. The idea of each workout is to feel great and have fun - pushing myself to my best, yet not overkill:)
