We’re having a period of hot weather here in Holland. Normally it’s about 22 C (71 degrees) around this time of year but since we got home temperatures go up to 30 C (86 degrees). To some of you this may not seem hot 😆 but for our country it is. I workout early in the morning, then do some cleaning in my house (have lots of overdue jobs around the house) and the afternoon I spent in the garden in our patio. Might seem kind of boring but I enjoy it because I can’t stand the heat very well.
I’ve been working out 3 days in a row now. Has been a while since that happened and it makes me feel very good. I have lots of energy and the best part: I do it with a smile. Oh if only I would never have to work again so I could workout in the morning all the time. But ….. that’s not going to happen, will have to go back to work eventually. But till then I’m enjoying the fact that I can go in the morning.
Yesterday I went to the gym as soon as it opened at 8 am and did a strength training upper body. Took me 43 minutes which is just long enough for me. I’ve decided that my workouts in the gym won’t be longer than 45 minutes. I’m not a person who likes strength training a lot and 45 minutes is just perfect for me.
Today again to the gym to do my interval training on the treadmill. Interval training is more easy when I do it in the morning instead after work. Unfortunately my gym doesn’t open till 8 am so I can’t do it before work. So just enjoy that I can do it in the morning during my vacation.
Distance: 4 K / 2.4 miles
Average time: 6:44 /km
Average speed: 8.9 km/hour
Fran’s daily outfit:
Yesterday: army girl. R. hates this dress but I love it because of how it fits, it’s perfect for a hot day.
Today I choose Capri pants, I prefer wearing dresses or skirts on hot days but today it’s not as hot as the past few days.
What’s for dinner:
Monday night back to normal: chicken breast covered with cornflakes, potatoes and left over salad from Sunday.
Yesterday a salad with strawberries, Brie cheese and cashew nuts with some bread. This is a great salad to eat on a Summer day.
Quote of the day:
A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.
