So anyway, I thought I had better make sure I would actually be able to do the run without dying or losing body parts, or something crazy like that, so yesterday ran 10.5km. It was a great run, I felt the best I have felt whilst running since before I was pregnant. It just goes to show that it does get easier, you just have to keep going. I thought it never would at one stage so I am glad that it is getting easier.
I went with a buddy who lives 300m down the road from us. We started from home and then we ended at the local Saturday morning growers markets... Brilliant planning!
There I got myself some lovely goodies...
|This bad boy was huge - the photo doesn't do it justice at all!|
|Bagels with cream cheese and lemon curd - probably not the best post run breaky but one of my fave breakfast treats.|
|Not-so nutritional snack of almond chocolate with a cuppa whilst catching up on some of my fave blogs while baby sleeps.|
Sunday has consisted of a great morning at church with some awesome friends, followed by lunch at my parents place. I am now relaxing with the computer doing some blogging while Tim helps my Dad with some handy man work and I listen to my baby talking to himself in his cot while he should be sleeping. Perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday when it is terrible weather outside.
I have been keeping up with the 30 Day Abs Challenge, however I did not do the yoga for yesterday.
Today's workout is here, a nice quick but painful one...
Day 16: Crazy-Tough Move: The Twisting WindmillTomorrow is another plank challenge - how long can you hold for now?
We bet you haven't tried this oblique-targeting exercise before. To do this move, lie on your back with your arms out to the sides and raise your legs straight in the air. Lower your legs to the left side of your body, bring them back to center, then lower them to the right. That's one rep. Try to do 12 reps of the twisting windmill!
My 16 week marathon training program starts in 3 weeks, I will talk a little more about that closer to the time, for now I am just enjoying my casual running.
I am so looking forward to my run next weekend and am now feeling really positive about it - like I'll actually be able to do it! I just hope the weather is better than it is this weekend!
What has been the best part of your weekend?
Anyone get in a good run this weekend?
What is your favourite breakfast treat?
Mine is definitely bagels, or some french toast or hot cakes with fruit and bacon and maple syrup... YUM! I am a sweet breakfast person.
