After a disappointing first week training, which just revealed how far I had to go to rebuild my fitness, this week was a little more encouraging.
Saturday: Long Run
12 miles in the sunshine by the bay on tired legs.
Sunday: 12 mile bike ride
Monday:-4 mile intervals.
Same as last week. 1/2 mile warm up, 12 x (1 min fast, 1 min recovery), jog home.
PM – 4 miles walking on the treadmill in the evening as part of my resolution not to spend evenings on my bum on the sofa.
Tuesday: 4 miles evening treadmill walking
Wednesday: 6 mile tempo run.
After last week’s disappointing run, I was mentally prepared to fight harder this week. I think mental state is so important, don’t you? M1 – Warm-up. M2,3,4 – tempo. M5 – recovery, M6 – tempo. My average speed was 8.38 and my tempo miles averaged 8.20. (Compare with last week’s tempo average of 8.40). REALLY happy with this workout!
PM – Yoga
Back to yoga after a few weeks away. Most of my town was there – clearly everyone’s NY Resolution was to go to yoga. It felt good to be back and to stretch those poor muscles!
Thursday: 4 miles evening treadmill walking.
In other news…I am in need of some style advice! Seriously!
Bearing in mind that, as a SAHM, I spend most of my time in yoga-pants and running gear, I am waaay out of it on what the cool kids wear (or even what the other normal 30-somethings wear). So for Christmas, the Husband fixed me up an appointment with a personal stylist at Nordstrom and gave me some money to spend on clothes. (I know, he’s a star). So I have dipped a toe into the slightly terrifying waters of Pinterest (here are my boards) and I genuinely would welcome any thoughts on any famous people dresses well for their late 30’s whose style I can basically copy. We are NOT talking the Kardashians, just to be clear.
Judgement Day My stylist appointment is the first weekend in February so I have time to get some style! At present, most of my pinning on Pinterest is ginger cats and kale recipes! Nordstrom do not sell gingers or kale!
Have a great weekend, everyone.
