Both Julie and I decided that this week, after cup day, we were going to get back on track. Training was still a little hit and miss, but last night saw me go for my first run in a few weeks. It was only a gentle jog of 3.89 kilometres, but it was my first in a while and I was already going out this morning for a pre planned run with a training partner. I just wanted to get out and do it. I had plenty of reasons not to go, it was late (8:20pm) and it was about to bucket down. I just put on a rain coat and off I went. I managed to get home with only a little shower, but then the heavens opened up. Someone wanted me to get out and do it. Michelle must have friends in high places.
|First run in 4 weeks.|
I went to bed knowing that I was up at 6:30 for a 5km run with Dayna and maybe Ben who was going to join us. When I walked out the front door this morning it was an amazing morning. Sunshine, no clouds and not a breath of wind. No excuses not to go out and enjoy a run. We managed to run 5kms and then come home and try some tabata training and then some boxing.
Tabata was new to me, but I enjoyed the concept. I just need to plan a bit better for our next session and have more exercises to choose from. That will be my homework and I can see myself doing some solo tabata sessions to improve the exercises. If you don't know what it is check it out.

I am just over the moon that now I have strung 2 decent sessions together in a row which I haven't done for a couple of weeks. Not saying the mojo is back but I am feeling a lot better for having done it and I will be working towards making round 4 as big as round 2. I want to get close enough to goal in the next round so I can look at doing Lean & Strong in round 1 next year. Best I stick to my word and keep up the training.
