Did you have a good week? Mine has flown by, the weekend has been really busy so I feel like I’m chasing my tail a bit today: I’m even behind with posting my 5×50 Challenge updates, oops! I am on track, though. 

Last week was pretty full on: 

Monday: WAR

Tuesday: Pound and then Zumba

Wednesday: Jog Scotland 

Thursday: PiYo

Friday: Salsa

I then did a ton of walking on Saturday and Sunday. I am short in my running for the week, though, so I’ll definitely need to squeeze a long run in at some point in the next few days. How, I’m not quite sure!

Have a great week, everyone:

Just a quick check in from me tonight, to run down my week- how was yours? I had a great week, fitness-wise:

Monday- 5k run

Tuesday- Pound and Zumba – two classes

Wednesday- JogScotland, we did hills. Seven of them!

Thursday- 5k run

Friday- walk. Salsa was cancelled 😦

Saturday – 5 mile run

Sunday- 30 minutes on the indoor bike

Tonight, I was really happy to be back at our regular Monday night WAR/Body Conditioning class. I’ve missed it while Jacquie has been on holiday, and it felt good to work out hard tonight. I tried my best to push myself, and my arms feel it tonight. Goodness knows how they will feel in the morning!

Here’s my weekly dose of motivation to keep me on track:  I LOVE this one! Have a brilliant week!

Here we are, back at another Monday. Yay! How has your week been? Jacqui is still sunning herself on holiday, and I’ve definitely been having withdrawal from her classes this week. I’ve made up for it though, with runs including a four miler on Friday.

Also, Sam is back with Pound! So last Tuesday I did a Doubler, with Pound and then Zumba, burning around 700 calories. Brilliant. We also had salsa on Friday night, too, so I did have some structure to my week.

Yesterday was the beginning of the first 5x50challenge of 2017: this year instead of there being just one challenge, there are several throughout the year to choose from. This is the first one, and as it lasts 50 days, I’ll be finishing just before I go on holiday so it is perfect timing! Watch out for my weekly roundup post and my Instagram updates. 

Here’s your weekly dose of Monday Motivation to kick start your week: yes!

Is it just me? Am I the only one who can’t quite believe that we’re moving into March this week?

I can’t fathom where this year is disappearing to! 

How was your week last week? Mine was good: I was away with work mid week, but kept on track as much as I could. I started last Monday with Body Conditioning/WAR and I worked hard, knowing that Jacqui was going on a well deserved holiday for a couple of weeks. As I headed to Aviemore for work on Tuesday I packed my running gear, and managed to get a run in on both Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. I took a rest day on Thursday as my legs had felt really heavy the day before and I was feeling the DOMS from Monday 😉 I did manage to fit in 12,500 steps though.

But on Friday evening I was back at salsa, and I know I’ve said it before but it is SO MUCH FUN! 

I’ve started this week with a Monday night run, and I’ve christened my new trainers. Yay! I always have a weird feeling when I wear new trainers: hoping that they are comfy and don’t rub, a little sad to get them dirty but a little excited to break them in too. Is it just me who feels like that? 

@TheWelshWookie and I have also signed up for the 5x50challenge again and this will, I think, be our fifth year participating. This year there are various options: one option is to run 5k per day for 50 days, but the option we’ve signed up for is to do 30 minutes of exercise a day for 50 days. Yes, some days that will be 5k, but other days it will be other activities. The aim is to encourage people to get fitter and more active, and the registration fee goes to charity, too. It’s a win win! Find out more here: http://5×50.org/  he next challenge begins this Sunday, 4th March 👍🏻

And so, to reflect the 5x50challenge, here’s some motivation: 

Have a good week everyone!
