How was your first full week back in 2019? I’m going to start in reverse order by telling you that I had a brilliant trip away in Belfast for the weekend, where we all surprised my mum while she was there for her birthday/retirement. It was ace!

But before that I had a really good week of eating well and cutting out the rubbish. Jacqui has set up a four week New Year Reset, just to get everyone back on track after indulging over Christmas. It’s not about weight loss, but about nourishing your body and feeling more energised. So far, so good!

Here’s what I did for exercise last week:

Monday: no class, so we went for a walk

Tuesday: no class, another walk.

Wednesday: Jog Scotland was back, and was busy- which was great to see. We did a 10 minute warm up jog, 10 minute tempo run, 10 minute cool down jog. I was very happy to be back.

Thursday: I joined Alison and Morag for a trail run around Kilmory Loch at lunchtime, I had never run there before and I loved it! At night it was also the return of PiYo and we started a new round. The lower body track is a bit of a challenge!

Friday: I planned to run but I had a little hip niggle so rather than risk it I went for a walk and did some TPP to help to ease it off.

All in all, it was a good week but I’m really looking forward to classes all being back this week.

I’ve signed up to do the Kintyre Way Ultra Relay along with Alison and Morag. We’ll be doing one section each of the 33 mile route so we’re planning to run together one lunchtime each week which should really help with training. I’ve ordered new trail shoes as my current ones are ancient, but faithful servants! Bring on the hills!

I’m looking forward to another great week 👍🏻

Enjoy your week!

Back to it!

After a few weeks of holidays, festivities, celebrations and parties; of eating and drinking my body weight in chocolate, prosecco and gin it is time to get back to routine.

Over the past few days I’ve enjoyed the remaking treats we’ve had a home and I’m ready to knuckle down and get back on track.

Here’s my plan:

Almost dry January- I’m not committing to dry January as I have some celebrations coming up, but I have cut out the extra booze when on the sofa. On track so far!

New Year Reset- Jacqui has organised a private group to keep each other on track and motivated during January. Keeping focussed is the key and this will be a huge help.

Back to Class- I’m looking forward to classes starting again later this week as the routine is a real positive for me. Over the past few weeks we’ve done lots of walking but I know I need to step it up.

Running Goals- I’ve committed to running the Kintyre Way Relay in May (eek!) which will be a great challenge. My plan is to add in some hill runs to my usual running routes while also building mileage. I’m planning on two runs this week- Jog Scotland on Wednesday and a lunchtime trail run on Thursday.

I’m not taking on too much, just getting back to basics and building my health and fitness again after a month of craziness!

Have a great week!
