This photo is my entry into Suzy's 2012 photo challenge. The theme this week was rocks. Well, I wasn't near any rocks this week -so used the ones by our pool around the newly planted pineapples. I'm afraid I wasn't very inspired with taking the photo - so explored more effects on Picnik!
But onto my fitness for the week:
I'm motivated and exercising well now - but annoyed that I can't kick the last dregs of this cold! Just a lingering cough, but slowly getting better!
Anyway - my goals last week were to do my Spartacus cardio-weights circuit twice - yes I did this on Thursday and Saturday.
To exercise every day - yes I cycled on Monday night, did some skipping on Tuesday - not much at all - only 3 lots of almost 2 minutes - but I was exhausted!! Definitely something I can build up and practice! Funny I can run for 1 hour, but only skip for 2 minutes!!
I even went out afterwards and bought myself a fancy digital skipping rope - much better to have one my size than holding onto my daughter's rope with my fingertips to try and make it long enough!!
On Wednesday I went for our family 3 km run on the esplanade. The girls were motivated and ran fast this week! I went with the elder daughter and we did it in 20mins! Not bad for an 8 year old!
On Friday I mowed the lawn - which is pretty good exercise - 1 hour of pushing the mower through long soggy grass!!
Then this morning (Sunday) I did my long run again...
More than 5 minutes faster than last week and getting close to my best time for this run again. This week it took me 59 mins and 31 secs!
A really good week of exercise - and I definitely feel my fitness returning !
Next week I'm having a trip away for a family wedding - so my goals are to fit in exercise as and where I can!
Hope you're havng a great weekend!
