Despite my cold I did get up at 5.15 am to get my workout in. I had planned a short one and said to myself it was only about 30 minutes and I could do that. And I did. Did a Turbofire HITT 15 and Stretch 10 workout.
Total time: 27 minutes.
Scheduled rest day although I did spend the morning cleaning my house.
Saturday & Sunday
Because of my cold I decided to take it easy on the weekend and start exercising again on Monday. I did take some walks with Bella because the fresh air felt very good, especially because there was a hard wind and you all know I love me some wind.
Started the week with a yoga workout. I’m not as flexible anymore as I was when I took weekly Pilates classes. In fact it has been almost 2 months since I last did yoga. But it went okay, after a few exercises my body was warmed up and the exercises were easier.
Total time: 54 minutes.
It has been 1.5 week since my last run. I thought I was a 100% better but during the run I noticed I was not. It wasn’t an easy run but I did the distance I had set my mind on before I started. I had to take a few walking breaks because halfway I (already) felt tired.
Weather:drizzle, windy, 3C (37 degrees)
Distance: 4.8 K / 3 miles
Average time: 7:09 /km
Average speed: 8.4 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Billy Ocean – Love really hurts without you.
Turbofire time! I have a bad arm/legs coordination. And with these workouts you have to move your legs and arms at the same time. It’s going to take a few more workouts before I get it but that doesn’t stop me from trying. I do like these workouts very much.
Total time: 53 minutes.
Last week I hardly did anything and that had to end. October and November haven’t been my best workout months and I wanted to end the month good which I did with 3 workouts in a row. Now I have to stick to this workout routine and make December a good month.

Day 332 – Monday November 28
In Holland we have Sinterklaas which is celebrated on December 5th. It’s a holiday especially for children and we don’t celebrate it. Most companies (mine and R’s does) have a Sinterklaas celebration before December 5th. Last Friday they had it at R.’s work. He came home Monday with a present. Because we don’t have kids it was for Bella: she got a dog bone from Sinterklaas (you can compare Sinterklaas with Santa Clause).
Day 333 – Tuesday November 29
Day 334 – Wednesday November 30
Heard a loud noise at work this afternoon. When I looked outside all these bikes were waiting for the traffic lights.
