The INBA Championships in June and July in Melbourne and in Zakynthos, Greece are now not far away and that means, “Work harder Janice!” Consequently my exercise regimen needed to increase. I now get up at 5am four days a week, instead of my usual three days a week and I do my facial exercises in the car while driving to the gym. My gym workout begins with 15 minutes on the treadmill, followed by 30 full push-ups, 30 half triceps push-ups and back leg raises, folowed by 2 1/2 hours working on the various muscle groups on the gym machines, at the end of which, I do some balancing work and then stretching and in the afternoon I also do a brisk 8km walk.
On the other three days I do all of the above except I don’t go to the gym and so I don’t do the 2 1/2 hours on gym machines or the treadmill and I get out of bed about 6.30am rather than 5am.
At 70 I feel strong and excited about life. I believe we all need something to keep our life juices pumping and for me striving to be all I can be at 70 certainly gets my life juices pumping.
