Thursday, Friday, Saturday
No workouts these days, I got really lazy when the end of the year was getting close. I did walk Bella every day though.
New Year, new beginning and what better way to start the year with a short workout. Did level 1 of the 6 week six-pack by Jillian Michaels. Workout focussed on core training. Have to be honest, after doing the circuit once, you had to repeat it and I skipped the second round.
Total time: 24 minutes (normally the workout is 35 minutes).
First run of the year, a short one. My only goal for this run was to run it without walking and I did. It was a great run and if they all, or at least most of them, will be like this, it’s going to be a great year.
Weather:cloudy, dry, little bit of wind, 8C (46 degrees)
Distance: 3.2 K / 2 miles
Average time: 6:51 /km
Average speed: 8.8 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: R.E.M. – Shiny Happy People
Slept terrible and woke up tired. Would have wanted to stay in bed a little longer but did get up. Had a Turbofire workout planned and started it. But my legs couldn’t keep up with the moves and the fast workout and I quit after 10 minutes. Tomorrow is a new day with new chances. This wasn’t my day but at least I tried.
Total time: 10 minutes.
I had a run planned early in the morning but when I woke up there was a huge storm. Lots of wind and rain. I had expected this a little and also had a DVD ready just in case. I decided to switch my run into a DVD and did a short Zumba workout focussed on the abs. It was a great short workout.
Total time: 18 minutes.
The Wednesday post will be only about my workouts, starting this week. I will blog on Friday too with a review of the past week.
After a low month in December I decided to start my workouts/running immediately on January 1st. So far I haven’t missed a day. I also made a deal with myself that I will be flexible from now on. So when there’s a storm like this morning, I switch from running to a DVD. And I promised myself that if I have a workout planned and it’s not my day, I will try it first and see how it goes, like I did on Tuesday.
Of course the year is still young and I know there will be days I will skip a run or a workout but as long as that doesn’t happen too often I’m okay with it.
Just short workouts this week but after doing almost nothing for 3 weeks, starting slow and short was just what I needed this week.
