How are you? Good weekend? Glad to hear it! Mine has been fab- I’m well and truly feeling the DOMS today 😁
We had a brilliant SUPercise session on Saturday, which I found tough going as we’d missed the last three weeks. My thighs were already aching before our long run yesterday! We ran a lovely 11 miles, including a few hills, so it was a challenging but fun run.
We also took part in the Nike ‘Run Your Fast’ challenge. We opted to run it in our tenth mile- not one of my best ideas, but it really pushed the pace at the toughest part of the long run! Our average pace was over 12 minutes for the whole run, but the fast mile was the quickest I’ve ran in 2015, at 8’52” woo hoo!
So my legs have been feeling it all day today. Am I going to rest tonight? Nope- I’m going to ease the muscles with the return of Clubbercise after a summer break. Yay! I love this class- great tunes, fun and a fab burn all at the same time. I’m also getting back to Pound this week, so I have a full week of fitness activities ahead.
I’m now feeling ready for the Great North Run in a fortnight: I’m planning on balancing tapering with maintaining my fitness by getting stuck into my classes again.
So, here’s to a great week- I hope yours is awesome too!
