Project 44: Day 15 core…a rest day…

Not a total rest…obviously! I still went to the gym, otherwise project 44 would fail, and we can’t have that! However as my Monday, which was going to be lighter, turned into tabata and a HIIT circuit, I decided I would have a lighter day today. I also decided that if I am going to…… Continue reading Project 44: Day 15 core…a rest day…

Core Considerations

Lately I have been considering core strength… and gingerbread houses… and kittens… but for the purposes of this blog post, lets stick to core strength shall we 🙂 although kittens are awesome… no, sorry core strength it is… Specifically I have been thinking about how to get really good core strength without hurting your back.…… Continue reading Core Considerations

Days 282 & 283 unconventional rest days…

After losing the plot, and running on lead legs I decided that this weekend should be slightly less crazy, exercise wise at least. (still crazy busy but mostly making cake decorations…) anyway…exercise wise I decided not to break myself completely… Day 282 (Saturday) Saturday was very busy, with shopping and cake dealing with and studying,…… Continue reading Days 282 & 283 unconventional rest days…

Day 200: I do like training in the morning…

If only I could consistently get up! I managed it yesterday, of course, because I had arranged personal training and therefore staying in bed for an extra hour was not an option! It was worth getting up… Of course it was worth getting up!! Who wouldn’t want to get up to attempt to support their…… Continue reading Day 200: I do like training in the morning…

Day 126: its Friday, its 7am…it is time for training :-)

Good morning and welcome to Friday! The idea of personal training always seems like a good one, when you organise it a week in advance…however the reality of getting up at 5:30 to get to the gym after 5 hrs sleep was considerably less appealing! (and yes I do have to get up 1 hr…… Continue reading Day 126: its Friday, its 7am…it is time for training 🙂

Day 90: trampolines and axes and hoops

Good evening 🙂 Ever have one of those days where you have to actively convince yourself to move, even just a little bit? Well I had one of those today, it was the first one for a while, but I could really have curled up and not moved at all for the whole evening! I…… Continue reading Day 90: trampolines and axes and hoops

Day 86: The Sunday after the race before

Good morning 🙂 I awoke Sunday morning expecting extremely achy legs, and was pleasantly surprised! I had tight calves (but then I always have tight calves) and hamstrings (but they have been tight a lot recently too) but all in all I was not too bad…I guess…practice and extra fitness actually helps when it comes…… Continue reading Day 86: The Sunday after the race before
