Fitness

I'm trying to get fitter. This is hampered a bit by my initial attempts injuring my foot.

However, I've invested in some kettlebells which I'm using in a largely unscientific manner to some effect, and I'm using our exercise bike and rowing machine a bit.

Also, on Saturday I helped a friend move house.

As a result of much of the above, I did very little yesterday due to exhaustion.

This morning, to rest my foot further, I chose to use my real bike to take me to the station instead of walking. Man, am I out of practice! I used to ride triple that distance and not feel it when I lived in Peterborough. I shall persevere!

My aims are to improve my cadiovascular ability, improve upper body strength, and shed fat. Easter did not aid with the latter goal.

Bye bye LJ

Livejournal was never about blogging for me. It was a combination of a diary and socialising. The social side has drifted to Facebook for the most part, but a few people held out on LJ. It now seems to be dying a death. So I'm moving to Dreamwidth with half the world to see if socialising still happens here.

Hello.

Who should I be following?
