As always a bit of running, a bit of weight lifting and one random workout ;D Just how I like it!!!
3 rounds of full body circuits followed by 30 minutes on the x trainer
Morning – All about upper body weights in the morning! Very excitingly (to me) I know I am getting closer to doing an unassisted pull up … small goal for this year … me and my snowman twig arms have got a way to go yet but we are getting there!
Evening – First run back with my Run Dem family after two weeks away! This time we went loooonnnng running to the Olympic Park and back! I loved it, EVERY SINGLE MINUTE! Always so good to catch up with everyone and regardless of the day I have had I always finish these runs with the biggest smile on my face. Casual, unplanned 9 miles … whoops!
Intervals. Horrible, horrible intervals! 10 minute warm up, 10 x 1 minute efforts followed by a 10 minute cool down. It was hard, it was sweaty but hey I got it done and the reward was 100% WORTH IT ;D! These legs WILL get used to speed!
3 rounds of full body circuits and a lovely 30 minute jog in the sunshine. Nothing like getting up early and having a relaxed run in the sunshine!
REST DAY!! Actually enjoyed today’s rest day, well my legs did that’s for sure! And instead of getting sweaty I chucked on my dress and heels and enjoyed some gin at the Gin Joint with some very gorgeous ladies …
Oh you know, casually became a fully qualified indoor cycling (or spin as we know it) instructor ;D!
A good few hours of spinning, shouting, more spinning and eating!! More to come on this shortly!
A WET RUN. Yep the lovely Alice and I said we would go on a little run to catch up and then have a HUGE brunch afterwards. I think the run was our excuse to have more brunch HOWEVER, the English weather had other plans! So I set out in the pouring rain (thank god for my uber stylish visor!) and ran the 18minutes to Alice’s door. I love the running community, on my way to Alice’s house I passed a good few other crazy runners also braving the rain and every single one I passed gave me a knowing smile “YES we are MAD”! I picked up Alice and we braved the outdoors, planning to do a 30 minute loop around Highbury. It was wet, and when I say wet I mean WET. The paths were flooded, the park waterlogged and we, well we were wet to the bone, quickly discovering that our trainers were not “flood proof”. So 5 minutes in we gave up, turned round grabbed a towel and went to Lululemon Islington to enjoy a yoga class instead. By the time we had finished our busy day of run, yoga, brunch and bed dismantling/ripping apart the sun showed up so YES we did go back out for a glorious 30 minute run! HA! Take that English weather ;D we got ya in the end! 48 minutes of running, 1 hour of flow yoga, 2 hours of brunching and 2 hours of ripping wood to shreds! It was a good day!
