Well, the runner in me has returned! Yes!
It’s been hiding away, recovering from a niggly knee and enjoying classes during November and December- you might remember that I said I wasn’t going to beat myself up about it. I didn’t, and on Saturday I enjoyed my first short run in some time. It was only around the harbour, but it felt good to be back out there, stretching my legs. I’ll admit to feeling some DOMS yesterday, but that’s all good. 😉
This week, I’m back at all three classes: Clubbercise this evening, PiYo on Wednesday and Pound on Thursday. I’ll also be back to a couple more sort runs too, I reckon.
It feels good to be back on it! 😀
Hello, everyone. How are you on this Blue Monday? It may traditionally be the day when most people feel down, but not here! I’m off to get some feel good endorphins at Clubbercise. Last week was great- it felt fantastic to be back at most of my classes and working hard at it again.
It was fab to get back to stretching at PiYo last Wednesday, and I’m looking forward to improving my fitness and complementing my running by building strength and flexibility- two definite gaps for me.
I’ve also cleaned up my eating a little; but I have a long way to go to get back to where I was earlier last year. I’ll get there. I’m not going to beat myself up about it 🙂
This reflects my current mindset:
Hello, my lovelies, did you have a lovely time over the festive period? I did. It was wonderful. I’ve done lots of relaxing, eating and some walking – but no running or classes at all. That changes tonight. Eek!
I’m back into my proper routine, with all of the treats and temptations firmly out of the kitchen. I have a healthy version of a turkey curry bubbling away in the slow cooker, and I’m ready to work hard at tonight’s Clubbercise class. Bring it on!
I’ve been thoroughly spoiled with lovely gifts over Christmas- including tickets for @TheWelshWookie and I to visit Harry Potter Studios, and I am so excited! I’m planning on making the absolute most of it, so in anticipation we have begun re-watching the movies and re-reading the books. We started on Saturday morning, and we’ve watched the first four films and I’ve read the first four books. It’s been years since I read them all, and I’m loving rediscovering the details I had long forgotten, or missed first time around. Like this:
So before I throw myself back into a routine, I’m pausing to think about what new challenges I can take on. As JK Rowling tells us:
Have a wonderful week!
