Evening all! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Especially the tennis! I got a text from my Dad saying he would be doing the Men’s final, but I had already arranged to go and visit a friend, so I taped it and am watching it now (just saw him!!)- I did listen to the match on my drive home but it is hard to listen while driving.
Anyway, I spent Sunday out visiting, and did do some yoga in the evening. So here is the belated (yet again) training for the previous week.
Monday- Just under 6 mile run- it was baking that day and I really struggled.
Tuesday- Aerobics- I was full of energy and loving it!
Wednesday- Rest day- walk up to cinema only to find film sold out! Walk home and yoga.
Thursday- Body pump- most notable was the full real press ups! OK so only 4, but still!
Friday- Audiofuel intervals- hard work (esp the fastest ones as you would expect)- followed by cheesecake! (Well, not right away)
Saturday- 8.5ish mile run, then helping at Summer Fayre
Sunday- Rest day- and yoga.
I am pleased I have kept up the yoga twice a week, and I might look at some of the other podcasts available for some variety.
Other stuff- I tried some chia seeds yesterday. They have been a bit of a craze (and raved about in Born to Run) and I looked for them in the little Wholefoods in London. Anyway, Lucy offered to send me some!
I mixed a small mashed banana with some cocoa powder, then added a tbsp chia seeds and a splash of milk, and left it in the fridge all day. I had it after my yoga in the evening and it was lovely- the chia seeds soaked up the milk and obviously banana and cocoa is already a winning combo!
I topped it with a pear and some garden strawberries- yum 🙂
Also ages and ages ago I tried some of the Nature’s Path cereal, and also joined their mailing list. A while back they sent an email saying “click here for free cereal” and I did, thinking it would be a small pack. Well it came in the post!
A real proper sized box of cherry and coconut cereal. Yummylicious indeed!
And today I had a run after work- I did the same route as last week but my legs felt heavy (not sure why as I rested yesterday- maybe teaching PE all afternoon in the heat?)- I picked up the pace at the end but it still took me 64mins (only a couple of mins faster than last week in that baking weather). Ah well I will take that I suppose.
I have also signed up to some more races- The Brighton half marathon and the Silverstone half marathon, and…..
.. next weekend Andy and I are off to Silverstone to see the Grand Prix!!!!!!!!!!! Woohoo! 🙂 He surprised me on Friday and I am so excited! 🙂
Any exciting races or other plans for you guys?
