After such a great bank holiday weekend, it had to happen – yes – the dreaded opposite!
Tuesday I reluctantly took a rest day, because I thought I should.Instead of going to the gym or running I tackled the toy cupboard with my son. That’s an awful lot of stretching lunging and lifting I’ll have you know! Boy was I stiff on Wednesday! I was on Chauffeur duties for the rest of the week, which eats into ones free time considerably. Not realising that I might be using up valuable exercise time, on Wednesday I went ‘mall walking’ ( now an official endurance training event, thank you for naming it to chocolaterunsjudy !). Seriously, I find that a trip to a shopping mall will chalk up more steps than an average day!
Imagine my surprise to find that the Nike store in Manchester has disappeared! Not to worry though. You can still get lots of Nike, under armour, adidas etc at sports direct, all at reduced prices if you don’t mind last seasons ‘fashion’. At adidas and JD sports I was entertained by the ‘sports meets fashion’ vibe going on, with tropical print blouson jackets and marching capris and shorts. I left all that to the youngsters and went off to sweatshop where I finally purchased some printed capri’s.
Not coloured but jazzy enough for me! I planned to test them out that evening, but by the time I’d done all my chores it was too late.
Ditto Thursday and Friday. I don’t know what happened! And to add insult to injury on Friday I had a junk food binge. Well it’s a binge now, but it’s not that long ago since a fruit scone, a packet of crisps and KFC for tea would have constituted a fairly normal day😄😄 Maybe sometimes you need to slip back to see how far you have come?
today I went to the gym and did 30mins on the elliptical trainer and 30 on the stair machine, all in my aerobic HR zone. Back with the programme!
