I am sorry I got rather behind in my C25K updates because I got a TAD obsessed with stalking Bond during the MDS. He has however finished it now so I can get back to my blog!
Before the C25K update though a quick MDS chat…Bond managed to come in the top third which is incredible!! I spoke to him last night and he sounded very relieved that it was over and very excited to come home! It was lovely to hear his voice, I couldn’t believe how much I had missed his dulcet tones. Now I am counting down till he gets back so he can tell me all about it over a glass of champagne. Also I am going to try to persuade him to write a guest post so you can see what it was like from the horses mouth…apparently he took photos and videos too so that might be worth a look!
Now back to the C25K!! I completed week 2 day 2 and although I found it a challenge I did get through it. I was alone again as Nat was still with her parents. However my colleagues were on full motivational form which was great. I pumped up my tunes and just got down to it. I am really enjoying it now, even when it gets tough I love the sense of achievement when it’s done. Now the error I made was getting chatting to a colleague and not doing my stretch off…something I REALLY regretted when it came to yoga the next day…it was BRUTAL as my muscles felt really tight. Still I stuck with Adriene and got through it and felt great afterwards.
Having found a new liking of yoga and an instructor who makes it doable I have decided to do her ’30 days of yoga’ and I am on day 4 so far and it’s going well. Some of it is really hard but Adriene shows ‘alternative’ moves for beginners which is great. I can feel my muscles working which motivates me to keep going even when it’s tough and I am not sore afterwards so I am able to get back to it every day.
On top of all the yoga and C25King I also went for a long walk on the beach with my friend who is visiting. It was really lovely to get out and enjoy the beach although the wind was a bit tough. Still we caught the sunset which was gorgeous and had a really good chat. There is something about being in nature that just makes you relax somehow. I haven’t been to Kite beach before and it’s gorgeous. I will have to go back more often for a walk.
All in all my new health kick is going well – if only I could really stick to a good diet I would be a new woman…curse my love of cake and all things naughty!!
