Thank you so much for all your comments on yesterday’s post. I really appreciate all your advice. I promised I would tell you today what I have decided: Pilates or Strength.
Drums please …… for now I’m going to stop with Pilates and replace it with Strength training. That’s also what most of you adviced me.
I have to take a look at my workout schedule when I’m going to do it. Maybe through a double workout or combine it with hill training on the treadmill which I want to start with after the half.
I will do at least one weight training a week, maybe 2, I will have to find out what works best for me. I’m going to focus on my upper body. A few weeks ago I already found a schedule for beginners which I am going to use. Tell you more about that once I started weight training.
Tomorrow it’s been 1 year since we lost our beloved dog Roussy. Looking back a year flies by and is over before you know it. We still do miss her and still talk often about her. Of course we are very happy with Bella but Roussy will never be forgotten either. Her ashes are still in our living room, close to Bella’s basket. I like to think that this way Roussy is watching over Bella. Roussy was our first dog, she was almost 17 years old when she died, we have had her for almost 12 years (we got her when she was 4.5 years old).
I didn’t go to Pilates yesterday. I didn’t really feel like going so I skipped. This morning I had speedwork on my schedule but after doing 1 mile of that I knew today wasn’t my day. It weren’t the legs, they are back in shape and felt good. I just couldn’t motivate myself to do it. I had to do 9.6K (6 miles) but ended up doing 4.3 K (2.6 miles). I’m okay with that, this can happen and tomorrow probably will be a better run.
I did decide however that this can happen again and if it does I won’t make up for the “lost” miles in a next run. As long as I can continue to run 4 times a week, I’m happy with that.
Weather: dry, a bit windy, 8C (46 degrees)
Distance: 4.3 K / 2.6 miles
Average time: 7:12 /km
Average speed: 8.3 km/hour
