What a quick week! This summer is flying by, and I’m not achieving as much this summer as I had planned. I’ll have to keep pushing through the early part of August before schools are back.
In terms of eating well I’ve had a pretty strong week, and I’ve run more miles than I had scheduled. Woo hoo! Here’s how my plan worked out last week:
Monday: a lovely long walk around the harbour
Tuesday: an evening run. It was warm and sunny- I set out to do 5k and managed slightly more, bagging 3.6 miles.
Wednesday: Jog Scotland Run- we headed out the Kilberry road and did a hill which was good. It was another warm run, and we clocked up 3.4 miles
Thursday: back to class! We started a new round of PiYo and it was so good to be back. I’m already loving the second Flow track – it’s shaping up to be a good round!
Friday: I was in the office all day so I headed out for a solo lunchtime trail run. Again, it was hot and my legs felt tired. But I did 2.8 miles so I was happy enough with that.
Saturday: I was up earlier than usual as we’d arranged with some Jog Scotland members to run at Freasdail wind farm. We walked up the first hill and had a fab morning exploring around the wind turbines. I’ll definitely be back soon to try out some routes to increase the mileage. We had planned to do around 4.5 miles and actually did 5.5 miles. Not bad! It was my longest run in a while, since my knee injury.
Sunday: I took a well earned rest day 👍🏻
Here’s to another positive and strong week. Let’s keep everything in balance:
