i love DIVING more than anything, but can't do that every day.... so i do lots of running and other sports instead - in-between my diving holidays! :-)

Good to see you are still moving. I hope all goes smoothly with the pregnancy. It should be a relief to have yor mother with you. Will you take her on your long walks?
Yes, I am taking my Mom with me now! We did over 10km today :-) It is a BIG relief to have her here indeed…. Not long now till the Big Day, I hope! :-)
Yes, and be sure your mother is handy. Probably too early to worry, as first births are more frequently late. But on the other hand, my younger son was born a month early, so you never know. In any event, best of luck.
Good to see you are still out trudging along. Moving forward instead of backward. I hope all is well.
Yep - so far so good... 8 more weeks to go!! Although a "colleague" from my child birth class had her son today - 6 weeks early!! I'd better pack my hospital bag soon, I guess!!:-)
Glad you are well. It is funny that exercise is so movement specific. Walking backwards is far more challenging than moving forward. Different muscles. Byt you mustn't lose track of where you are going. Be well.
walking backwards is not such a good idea when you are managing pregnancy related clumsiness (big belly!), you know! ;-) I am really getting into swimming now - putting my scuba mask and snorkel into some good use…..
Was thinking of you and your limited exercise repertoire & I thought of recommending that you try walking backwards where it is safe to do so. Might make your walks more interesting and challenging, Meanwhile, I hope your pregnancy goes well.
Hi there! Thanks for the advice! :-)
I plan to incorporate more swimming now - have been paying for my overpriced gym as normal and have been barely visiting there this year!! :-)
All is going well, thanks!
Pool swimming 1:40'00, 2.00 km.2000 meter swim
Crosstrainer 0:49'18.7 Average heart rate 141 bpm, 2.10 km.cross-trainer workout at the gym, Marriott Sprowston Manor. My move number 500!!!! :-)
Trekking 7:22'12 Average heart rate 94 bpm, 21.22 km.Day 4 at Isle of Wight: the TOP hike! We parked at Brooks and walked all the way to the Needles and back - the sea views are breath-taking on the way! It was also warm and sunny - my mom and I got sun burned a little by the end of the day! On the way back, just about a kilometre from our parking spot, we got into a very heavy albeit short rain with HUGE hale!!
Scuba diving 1:00'00.Ras Ghozlani, Ras Mohammed. This was my dive no. 700!!! And the first dive of this holiday, too.... It is so nice to get back into the water!! :-)
Roller skating 1:36'51.2 Average heart rate 118 bpm, 19.72 km.this is a very special move for me - as it completes my month's long challenge! I have committed to do 250km "moving" in April to fundraise for Help For Heroes. I had done 125km a month on average over the last 12 months, so it seemed a big enough challenge! I have done 318.8km as of today and have fundraised £344 from 27 donors so far!! It feels really good to accomplish this - especially, considering that I picked up for my challenge the wettest April in the century!!! :-)
Roller skating 2:21'20.5 Average heart rate 125 bpm, 19.19 km.wow!! this was my FIRST time roller-blading since 2001!!! A pair of brand new K2 was sitting in my wardrobe never used for over 10 years.... It was GREAT to finally put these to use - finally - today!!! :-) No doubt - there is more roller-blading to come! (Especially, that I DID remember how to break some time into my session today... lol...) Great Windsor Park is certainly a great place to do it!!
Multisport 3:02'37.2 Average heart rate 132 bpm, 7.59 km.what a day! my LONGEST gym workout ever - indoor body step (my Sat regular class) followed by a special Virgin Active outdoor event: MEGA circuits and MOSTER Zumba classes!! Got nice tan in addition to a great workout and used in excess of 1,200 calories in one go! :-)
Weight training 1:20'31.6 Average heart rate 102 bpm.BIG DAY today!! I have started a 12 week weight training program: today was Week1/Day 1 - focus on shoulders; i was doing some hip-hop dancing in my resting intervals (couldn't help it - the music was too good not to dance!) - i hope this won't make my end results worse!! :-)
Scuba diving 1:12'00.
Trekking 4:58'31 Average heart rate 112 bpm, 19.76 km.the first hike of the season!! Tynham village to Durdle Door and back! :-) i used my T6d and GPS-pod first time for hiking today - so that now i know the actual elevation for all these hills!! 166 m is the tallest one.
Running 1:28'42.8 Average heart rate 148 bpm, 13.36 km.run from home to the Virginia Water lake, around the lake and then back home - this is the longest run I have ever done!!
this is my longest run ever (to date)!!
this is my longest run ever (to date)!!

Getting closer: http://www.movescount.com/applications/iphone
Movescount sends a perverse meta-message by featuring duration as a positive dimension of exercise. You’ll notice that “the most active members” of the HIIT group are listed by descending order of workload. A much better measure would be to list exercise by intensity. A Swedish study of 44,000 men showed that men who exercised for 5 or more hours a week at age 30 were 19% more likely to develop an irregular heartbeat by 60 years of age than men who exercised 1 hour or less weekly. A German study found that people who exercised every day were more than twice as likely to die of a heart attack or stroke as those exercising 2-4 x a week. Research shows that 2 weeks of interval training can increase VO2max as much as up to 2 full months of endurance training.... Even with 90% lower training volume.Your goal when exercising should be to get the most intense workout in the shortest amount of time...then let your body fully recover. Maximize intensity, not exercise load.
