Happy new week!
How was your weekend? Mine was filled with Clarsach and organising- two of my favourite things!
That rounded off a good, solid week for me that looked like this:
Monday: circuits. It was pretty near to a PT session as there were only three of us, so Jacqui mixed it up with reps rather than timed stations. I loved it!
Tuesday: Sculpt followed by TPP. Sculpt is really making a difference to my overall conditioning and I’m finding that TPP is critical to my recovery.
Wednesday: it was absolutely lashing with rain, but I got out there with the JogScotland crew and did sprints. Badass!
Thursday: PiYo, and the beginners are certainly ramping it up, and catching up quickly!
Friday: we went for a wet and windy walk
Saturday: another good walk after Clarsach
I’m really pleased with how last week shaped up. This week and next will be very different- I have a lot of travelling this week, so I’ll be squeezing in walks and resistance training as and when I can!
Here’s your Monday Motivation: Have a good week!
I’ve had a busy week and an even busier weekend, so this is just a quick stop by.
Last week I did well, I definitely rediscovered my running mojo! Here’s how my exercise worked out:
Monday: 5k run
Tuesday: Sculpt and Trigger Point Pilates
Wednesday: pyramid lamppost sprints with Jog Scotland
Friday: 6k Run
Saturday: a spa day at Portavadie, including a walk there and back.
Not too bad! Here’s some motivation for next week:
It’s Monday, and for us it’s a bank holiday. Yay! I love an extra Monday off, with nothing much planned 🙂
How was your week? Mine was very mixed: a week where the best laid plans went awry. I started off last Monday with a brilliant Circuits class. I’m finding that my fitness is recovering and every week I am making progress. It’s such a great way to start off the week, revving up with both strength and cardio. I tried out my new leggings from OgiYogi and they were amazing!
I knew I wouldn’t make it to Sculpt or TPP on Tuesday as I was on my way to stay at my parents for early meetings in Glasgow on Wednesday. I did manage a short walk, though. The plan for Wednesday to Friday was to be in London for work, so I planned lots of walking a s packed my resistance bands, but Storm Ali put paid to my plans, and London wasn’t meant to be this time. I did walk around 15k steps on Wednesday and one positive was I made it back for PiYo on Thursday. This new round is ace, and as we have lots of beginners it’s been a chance to really focus on technique and getting each move right.
I had a day off on Friday, and so I decided to head out for a 5k run. It was amazing! The first self motivated run in a while, and I loved it.
We had visitors all weekend, but on Sunday we did go out for a walk in the rain, and this morning, @TheWelshWookie and I got another 5k in. It’s the first 5k that he has done in a long, long time: as he said, it’s wasn’t fast and it wasn’t pretty- but he smashed it!
I may well have rediscovered my running mojo, just in time for the autumn! Have a wonderful week ☺️
Just a quick motivation pic from me this week, catch up next week!
Hands up if, like me, you’re finding these darker mornings a little more depressing and tougher to get started on? Add in the wind and the rain and it’s just not the best start to the week after such a beautiful summer!
But along with this comes the promise of crisp, cool evening walks and the smell of autumn in the air of course.
And that helps when I’m thinking ahead to my weekly routine, and what I’ll be able to achieve.
Last week was good:
Monday I was back as circuits and I worked pretty hard. The additional cardio with skipping was most welcome!
Tuesday was another excellent doubler, with the resistance band based Sculpt class followed by Trigger Point Pilates.
I managed to get a good amount of steps in on Wednesday as I didn’t get to Jog Scotland. I’m definitely up for it this week, as it’s been three weeks since I last ran!
On Thursday we had a new round of PiYo and it was brilliant to see a lot of new faces joining us. I’m looking forward to the routine building in the coming few weeks.
I also managed a walk on Friday, Saturday and Sunday so I had an above average week for activity!
Given why I said earlier about mornings, here’s something to help if you feel the same: Have an amazing week!
