And on Tuesdays, we rest. Today I was back at work and only left the house for half an hour to walk to the post office and back. It was a day of comfy socks and slippers to give myself a bit of a break after the last seven days of exercise! So this eveningContinue reading “20/09/22 – Rest day!”
It’s the queen’s funeral today so we both got the day off work. We’re not that bothered by the Royal Family so decided to spend the day out in the countryside instead. We got the train to Orpington and then set off on a ten mile looped walk. We ended up walking 13 miles afterContinue reading “19/09/22 – New walking PB”
This is my happy little face after today’s 30 min 5k. I’m still loving doing c25k but without walking, it’s really making me push myself and feel excited for each run. The rest of today consisted of a trip to Crystal Palace for snacks for tomorrow and then an evening on the sofa playing gamesContinue reading “18/09/22 – Third run of the week”
Today I went to Tooting Bec Lido for a swim with Corinne. We did 500m then did some diving practice which was super fun! Here’s me and her practising our synchronization ready for the Olympics… Maybe not, but we did have the most wonderful morning and afternoon!
Free day at work to be “in service of others” so my friend from work Sharonand I picked up four bags of rubbish along the canal. We then followed “the queue” to nosy and then home via Victoria. Such a lovely day and we ended up walking over 11 miles!
Nic had to pick up an order from a shop in Westfield tonight so we decided to make an evening out of it. After work we got the train to Shepard’s Bush and went for dinner at a delicious Indian restaurant. It was amazing food but incredibly rich, I only managed half of mine butContinue reading “15/09/22 – Evening Westfield Trip”
I went to my first ever proper weight lifting class tonight! I squatted 30kg and did loads of press-up training which was hard but I absolutely loved and it and definitely will be back. It’s so nice having lots of hobbies outside of work, I find it really helps me switch off. I’m a veryContinue reading “14/09/22 – Lifting iron!”
Finally finally finally, I’ve got new running shoes! I’ve decided to do Couch to 5k again, but jog when it says to walk and run fast when it says to run. I want to get my speed back up and I think this will really help. My first run went great! I really enjoyed properlyContinue reading “13/09/22 – New running shoes!”
We’re back home and back at work… This evening I went round the whole house checking in on all our plants, seeing who needed a little bit of TLC. The photo is of one of my new pots which makes the job much easier! All the rest I use a little moisture reader to seeContinue reading “12/09/22 – Plant doctor continues”
We made sure to squeeze the most out of our Bath trip with afternoon tea at The Pump Room in the last few hours before our train home. It’s safe to say we were stuffed by the end of it! We had to take away some of the cakes for our train ride home. I’veContinue reading “11/09/22 – Last Bath moments”
