I’ve not blogged for a couple of weeks, as we’ve been on holiday. It was good to step back and change up my routine with no pressure to keep anything up. We had a bit of a staycation: we visited places in North Wales before going to the Midlands and the coming back up via York. We had a great time!

During the first week, we kept our eating more or less on track, but we’re much more relaxed during the second week. And though we didn’t have any formal fitness plans, we did an awful lot of walking almost every day, often getting around 15,000 – 20,000 steps in. So all in all, not bad!

We are getting back into a routine this week. No circuits tonight, but we got a lovely long walk in after work instead.

Have a good week, whether you are in holiday, working or getting back, and don’t forget:

How was your weekend? Mine was great- and it has been fab to see the sunshine and warm weather make a welcome return. Love it!

I had a full on week again last week, and I stayed pretty close to my goals for health and fitness. Hear is how my activity measured up:

Monday- body blitz circuits. Jacqui mixed in some new challenges and we used the short resistance loop bands which are my new favourite- I had DOMs for most of the week afterwards. We have bought some bands for ourselves so they’ll be coming in holiday with us!

Tuesday- I wasn’t back from Glasgow in time for Trigger Point Pilates, but I did squeeze in a walk

Wednesday- JogScotland. We ran out and back along the Glen Road which is uphill on the way out and joyously downhill on the way back. It was great, even if my new hair cut was destroyed by the rain!

Thursday- it was the final week of round 56. We ran through the whole thing non-stop. It was tough, but I really enjoyed this round!

Friday- a sunny walk around the harbour

Saturday- another sunny walk around the harbour

Sunday- gardening. Lots of squats when weeding!

Jacqui is away on holiday for a week, then @TheWelshWookie and I are on holiday for two weeks so there will be no classes for a while. We have picked our resistance loop bands and running gear, so I plan to get some activity in. But, more than anything, I’m looking forward to some down time. It’s been six months since my last break so I’m definitely going to have some R and R.

In the meantime, here’s something to keep me focused this week:

Hello! I can’t believe we’re mid way through June, with just two weeks until school holidays. And- more importantly for me- until we’re off on holiday too!

Last week was a quiet one for us, I’ve not much to report after the highs of last Sunday’s 10k. My week went something like this:

Monday- body blitz circuits

Tuesday- Trigger Point Pilates

Wednesday- Jog Scotland run, in the rain for a change

Thursday- rest

Friday- walk

Saturday- walk

Sunday- walk

By the end of the week I was flagging. Probably a combination of recovery needed and I think I’m ready for some time off. It has been a long six months since my last break and it can’t come quickly enough!

After my lack of activity since last Wednesday, here’s something that struck me:

Have a great week!

Hello! Yesterday I did something I hadn’t done so far in 2018. I ran in an organised race! I can’t believe it is half way through the year and it’s my first of the year so far.

I ran in the Great Women’s Run, a 10k in Glasgow. I’ve done it a few times before but not for several years, and not since the route changed. The changes were for the better- and it was amazing! I ran with my sis-in-law Janice who achieved a fabulous time of 53 minutes 👏🏻 and her friend Claire who also ran in a great time of under an hour!

Here’s the medal: and the T shirt and goody bag: I’m feeling it tonight though, but I did go to circuits which was tough on my tired body!

Last week’s round up:

Monday- circuits

Tuesday- Trigger Point Pilates

Wednesday- Jog Scotland Corranbuie route

Thursday- PiYo

Friday- walk

Saturday- walk

Sunday- 10k race

It’s three weeks until I have a holiday. We haven’t had time off since Christmas so my body- and my mind- are ready for it!

Here’s your motivation for this week-

Have a great week!
