Hello! How has your week been? The weather here has been stunning, if a little breezy at times. But, we’ve made the most of it, getting some runs and walks in as part of our 5×50 Challenge. In case you don’t follow me on social media, here’s the evidence:
Tonight, we had a brilliant PiYo class, learning the basics of a new round. There are some moves that we haven’t done before, and it’s really challenging some muscles- which is great! It also reminded me of this, which I had pinned a while ago:
Whether the weather lasts or not, I’ll be getting on with day 31 of 5×50; bring it on!
Happy Easter everyone! I hope you haven’t gorged yourself on too much chocolate 😉 I’ve had a lovely weekend. I was fortunate enough to see Adele live in Glasgow on Saturday night and she was even more amazing than I had imagined she’d be. On Sunday we had a great family day at Oran Mor in Glasgow where we had dinner. The food was fab!
I mentioned recently how this year is flying in, and to emphasise that further the 5×50 Challenge is upon us once again! @TheWelshWookie and I have signed up for a fourth year in a row. For those who don’t know about it, the 5×50 challenges you to be fit and active for 50 days in a row: originally the challenge was to walk or run 5k each day for 50 days. Now, there are a few challenges to choose from including the one I’m doing this year- to do a minimum of 30 minutes exercise (the equivalent of a 5k) each day for 50 days.
This year I’m planning on posting a picture each day on both Instagram and on Snapchat which captures the activity I’m doing that day. Here are the images from days one and two:
I’m looking forward to this year’s challenge. I feel ready for it, especially as I don’t have many runs booked. Also, as I’ve really been focussing on cross training to support my running, this version of the challenge is spot on as it really accommodates that.
Here’s something I found on Pinterest during last week, and I’ve saved it to share today with you:
So, if you’ve overindulged on the choccies, don’t worry about it. Just enjoy it then get back on track.
