Well hello there. How was last week? Did you finish January strong, or did it wind down with a whimper? Is February off to a flying start?
My week was good, pretty solid actually. Travel for work meant I didn’t manage to my Monday night class, and Pound is still off on Tuesdays while Sam, our instructor, recovers from an injury. All in all, though, I managed ok.
Monday I found myself in Glenrothes, and so I went for a run as soon as I arrived. I had a little trouble with the Nike Running Club app (i.e. it conked out) so I restarted it, and all in all Imanaged 4.25 miles. Woop! I was up early on Tuesday and headed out for a pre-breakfast run, knowing that I would be tired after a long drive home, and I didn’t want to risk skipping a day so early in the week. Once again my app was glitchy but I did manage a 5k first thing.
On Wednesday evening I headed out with the Jog Scotland gang, and the run just flew by! We did a 10 minute warm up run followed by 10 minutes of chain running and a 10 minute cool down. It was great fun, I hate to say it out loud but I do love chain runs 😮
I’m pleased to report that I made it to both PiYo and VeraFlow on Thursday night. I’m really enjoying this round of PiYo, it contains lots of my favourite moves like kick throughs and the PiYo flip, yay! It felt tough but very satisfying after missing class the previous week. We even added the start of the latest Flow section so we’re making rapid progress.
I had a day off work on Friday, so I headed out for a run in the morning: my legs felt tired and heavy after classes the night before, telling me I had worked hard! When I checked my pace, I was also running a good bit faster than I had anticipated which was a lovely surprise! We then had Salsa on Friday night and again, I felt like we were making progress. Having said that, we did some work on arms and, well, my arms do not want to work when put together with my feet! Oops! I definitely need to practice, practice, practice.
Oh, and I said goodbye to 2.2 lbs of fat, so that’s good news too 😉
We then had a relaxing weekend and my legs definitely felt the better for it at WAR/Body Conditioning tonight. Speaking of which, I felt much stronger in some of the sections tonight so this seemed very apt: Hustle hard this week, girls and guys! 😉
