Yep, one of my goals for the year was to: do more running.
I’m not trying to focus on any distances or speed; I just want to simply get back into it and try to find the love again.
I did three runs this week, yay!
1) A short 2.5km run at my usual pace of 6:30 min/km.
2) An interval run – 30 second sprint and 30 second walk, for 10 minutes. I was absolutely shattered after that!
3) A long 12.5km run at my usual pace of 6:30 min/km. No stopping, except to drink some water!
The days have been really hot, so I have been waking up at 5:30 – 6am to go for a run, or waiting until 7pm when the heat has subsided. The fact that I can drag my ass out of bed in the morning, says a lot about how much I’m loving the feeling of being fit and strong again.
I’ve also been following yoga, pilates and workout videos at home, in the evenings, which has been – surprisingly – lots of fun.
I definitely have my fitness mojo back and I’m making the most of it!
This is my very horribly coloured, but delicious fruit smoothie with mango, pineapple, cucumber, mint and coconut water!
