    :lol: I hate that ,that's why I always try to go on the death hours, although sometimes I have one person in my track & for the last times that happened I only caught slow swimmers :lol: but it was okay. rush hours for me, never really, I rather not swim than having people showing up all over the place.

    I have started the 100 push ups program, as well as the 200 sit ups program. Did it yesterday and felt very sore today but still had another crack, will leave a day rest in between as it suggests on site in future. Has anyone else started or completed this?

    Oops sorry I meant to link but clicked on another tab and my distraction began!
    Sit ups
    Push ups
    I think it should be a good little challenge, I love the idea of being able to do that :)

    ^Ok I see thanks, well it's fine, don't go too far when starting this training because then you will get very sore & take much time to recover, go slowly. I could do this because I do swimming also & by doing swimming I'm working everything ... push ups & sit ups only work basically biceps, triceps, abs, chest & shoulders ... so you only work your upper body, if you add running to this I think it's the best.

    I also do a program of 3x cardio per week at gym, a couple of reformer pilates classes as well as riding my bicycle (sadly not at the moment due to a burst tube :( ) I just want an extra something to give me a bit of a goal, will be interesting to see if I get there haha

    Ok then it's fine as long as you work your lower body as well. :) good luck for your training. I should do that as well, add it to my swimming training, since I left gym I'm much weaker although I do swimming pretty much every week & it's great but it just shapes you up, doesn't make you much strong. when I had swimming classes with a trainer I used to do 2 laps, come out of the water & do 20 abs or 15 push ups & then come back to the water right away & then do it all over again, it was awesome but so exhausting.

    wow that would be exhausting! I used to swim at my gym a few years ago but I was just so generally bad at it, I swam like a rock.
