I haven’t done nothing. I have done a lot of the normal activities that I do, some walking, some running, some dancing some gymming. It has just not been as dedicated as it normally is. Gym sessions have been somewhat minimal (apart from PT) and running has been less frequent than it should have been.
However, I have taken some time to rest and look after my head.
I know rest days don’t really fit with a 365 day exercise challenge, but rest and mental health is just as important as physical fitness. So I am not counting this as a fail and I am going to carry on 🙂
Actually I was counting it as a fail until I started writing and the, coupled with some bad news I got over the weekend made me realise that I have to do what is best for me and not get all hung up on “failing” a self imposed challenge. I am still going to carry on with the exercise every day thing because I enjoy it and it suits me, and it is the whole premise of this blog 😀
So, onto the positives and the good things I did do last week…
PT on Tuesday was awesome!! Hard work, I was convinced at one point that Matt was trying to kill me…but he failed…I survived 😀 despite kneeling slams and rowing sprints and dumbbell bench press and rows and other good stuff like that!
Wednesday was (of course) full of dancing and walking and that sort of good stuff. Dancing helps everything (with the possible exception of leg injuries) so that puts it way up there with the best things to do!
The days after this (exercise wise) contained some half hearted gumming and some general meandering and it was Sunday before I got myself in gear enough to run…
I ran 7km (still intervals) along the downs link pat and it was extremely muddy… there were parts of it that were a lot like paddling rather than running but I’d undoubtedly did me good to get out in the cold crisp sunshiny air!
I just noticed I took a pic of my feet at the start…I should definitely have taken an after photo at the end!!
So…that was last week… this week will be better 😊
