I'd decided to start up my Fitness Friday link up again, so I can keep a track of what I'm up to now the weather is improving (looks out at grey skies, laughs wryly). I am such a bad workout logger, as I will only share what I've done if I think my week looks vaguely impressive.This low down is in no way indicative of the past few months! I missed the boat a bit this week with posting this, but here's what I have been getting on.
Saturday: 3.4k run. I had a busy old day today, what with a 3.4k dog walk in the morning, a ton of shopping and then the impromptu run. But it got me back on track.
Sunday: 1hr Zumba. Yay Zumba. It never gets old. It's my favourite way to work out and always makes me feel good.
Monday: 1hr Zumba. I went for the double.
Tuesday: 50mins Powerhoop. I need to do a proper post about my new thang- hooping. It's a great toning workout.
Wednesday: 2.7 mile run. I'm trying to think in miles, not km. I went down the canal straight from work and it was pretty nice to try a new route. I'm trying to get into the habit of going out before I get home, since I find once I am back the motivation swiftly declines.
Thursday: 3.4 mile run. This was a bit of a killer. My legs were tired from yesterday, and I kept getting pins and needles in my foot. Really annoying, I hope it was a one off.
Friday: Rest. Needed to give my legs a break. Stretched them well by running around after 61 children on the reserve.
So today I am going to run again and see how it goes, my legs still feel a little achey, but I am hoping if I keep it up I will get back into the groove.
I signed up for a half marathon!
In four weeks time!
(easier said than done!)
Last week my friend said she's signed up for it, but could only run about 5 miles (though I bet she's better than she says she is!) and I was all like 'ooh I am a rubbish runner I shall definitely sign up!' then on my birthday on Tuesday I was having a 'I am old and have achieved nowt' crisis, so signed up online at work. Having barely run since January, and even then my longest distance being 10k. Which wasn't the easiest.
I don't have a game plan yet. I just want to keep up the running in the lead up to the race, stretch, not worry about my time, and break it down mentally into 2 and a bit 10ks. Like a 10k is a doddle for me. Yuh....no.
Who knows how I'll do. And, the course is undulating. Oh deary me. The good thing about this is it is motivating me to work out, as I had become so slack and lazy over the winter. No excuses now, or I will die when the race comes around in a month.
