I had to take yesterday off after slightly overdoing it on Wednesday and Thursday (sore muscles along the back of my left leg, especially the top of the calf behind the knee).  Had a 1.5hr walk for work-related purpose but will not log that as exercise I think (only do so when I have a cold or other ailment and truly can't do anything else).  Today I was set on making it down to Chelsea Piers for 1.5hr novel revision time and then 10am spin class; felt dreadful when I got up around 7:15 (didn't fall asleep till around 2 and slept lightly and badly, inevitable consequence of this very demanding time of the school year), lay back down for a few minutes to see if I could fall back asleep but remembered my "non-negotiable six hours a week" exercise commitment and also that a couple out-of-town friends will be around this afternoon and evening, i.e. early morning work an absolute priority.  Was very glad I made it downtown, especially as I won't be able to get to one of Joanna's spin classes for another couple of weeks.  She teaches three at Chelsea Piers (Monday, Friday, Saturday) and I think I am going to make it a priority to get to all three this summer when I am in town.

Another Tabata class!  I have to try and do some of these on my own next week while I'm away, though I think it's easier to work that hard when you're surrounded by others than on your own.  6 x 4min Tabata (20 seconds all out, 10 seconds recovery), with 3min rest between (2min recovery, 1min settle back into work gear).

1hr spin

You are very strong: you do workouts with few hours of sleep and long walks even if you have cold. I wouldn't succeed.
