After a tough week the week before last, I finally managed to have a more structured week with my health and fitness last week. My cold was still there, and it has lasted into this week, which is really unusual- I normally find a cold shifting after a few days, and long gone within a week. Alas, not this time. Anyway, last week was better than the previous one, and my activity diary looked like this:
Monday- body blitz circuits
Tuesday- Trigger Point Pilates
Wednesday- Jog Scotland, hill repeats
Monday’s circuit class was a tough one. I really love starting my week with this class, but having the cold really curtailed my performance. On Tuesday I was on Islay but I just made it back in time for TPP which I was very grateful for after a long day. Wednesday meanwhile I made it back to Jog Scotland and although I was feeling better, I struggled on the hills and didn’t perform as well as I would have liked but I ground it out and got it done. I had another busy day on Thursday but was back in time for PiYo. We had a couple of beginners join us so the pace was slower than usual which my weary body was grateful for! On Friday I had another early start and another ferry journey, this time to Rothesay on the Isle of Bute. It was a gorgeous day, and in the evening we went for a walk to get the heart rate up a bit! I had planned a run on Saturday after Clarsach class, but with the sun out again we spent some time in the garden doing more tidying up including weeding and mowing before heading out for a lovely relaxing walk to make the most of the weather. It was just what I needed after a busy week.
Today I’ve been in Helensburgh but made it back- just in time for Circuits and my performance was much improved from last week. That pesky cold is still hanging around but it’s slowly shifting. Yay!
My eating has been pretty inconsistent this week with some days better than others. We’ve been better this weekend, and my evening meals have been jam packed with good food and veggies. It’s been the eating-on-the-go that has been the issue! Oh well, back to it.
Here’s today’s motivation:
Have a great week!
