Hello! How has your week been? The weather here has been stunning, if a little breezy at times. But, we’ve made the most of it, getting some runs and walks in as part of our 5×50 Challenge. In case you don’t follow me on social media, here’s the evidence:
Tonight, we had a brilliant PiYo class, learning the basics of a new round. There are some moves that we haven’t done before, and it’s really challenging some muscles- which is great! It also reminded me of this, which I had pinned a while ago:
Hello, did you miss me last week, when I was away gallivanting? @TheWelshWookie and I were off visiting the Harry Potter Studios Tour and it was awesome! Here are a couple of snaps:
From a fitness point of view, we did lots and lots of walking in London and around about. We also visited Southend and walked the longest pier in the world, which is 1.3 miles long!
I’m glad to be back into a routine, though, and we were back at PiYo tonight, starting the next round, which is round 40. I think I’m going to love some of these routines and the 80s music is fantastic! I tried out my new mat tonight, but it isn’t sticky or grippy enough and I couldn’t grip properly, so I ended up swapping it for one of Jacqui’s. Any tips on how to make a mat more ‘sticky’ if you know what I mean?
After a break, and with the summer looming, it’s easy to fall away from routine and to not stick to fitness goals. If that rings true for you, I hope this helps; it has helped me this week:
First, let me start today’s post by congratulating all of those fabulous runners who achieved over the weekend. I know a few people who had big runs and races, and I want to say well done to you all!

Here’s something to get is all started this week:
