Tuesday and Days 2 and 3 of WS3. I didn’t post yesterday (Monday). I did the early morning uphill Powerwalk from Central to the Peak. It is an excellent cardio workout and especially as the group was quite large yesterday with 11 walkers everyone could find someone at their pace. It was tough in the heat and some of the walkers pushed themselves. My friend did she was out there at the front. I was quite a few strides behind her. Firstly, it was hot and humid, also she is 5’10 compared to my 5’1” and it is always tough for me to match her stride and she has an amazing cardio capacity to boot. According to the watch she wears to track her fitness she has the cardio strength of a 28 year old. How awesome is that? She is 50. She was breathless though when she got to the top of Old Peak Road whereas I wasn’t. I guess I could have pushed myself more and I usually do when it isn’t so hot. It was just wonderful to see her there and have the fitness to do it and be with all those walkers. I enjoy the Monday morning walks. They are short and tough.
My friend invited me back to her place for tea afterwards and that was so nice. She has been doing Jessica’s routines on YouTube and with her hiking and diet has lost 5 kilos. Isn’t that wonderful? When I left her she was getting her mat out to to Relax and Restore.
It took me ages to get home and I felt the hike up our hill yesterday afternoon. The heat and humidity was punishing. I didn’t do a workout I rested with a book, had a snooze and did some work.
This morning I did the Day 2 recommendated Metabolic Conditioning as I skipped that yesterday and today’ Cardio Core Flow. I enjoyed them both but found Metabolic Conditioning tougher today than I remembered. It is wonderful to be back on the Countdown Plan. I have only been away from it a week but I have missed it.
I am planning a day at home so I will probably do something at lunchtime to get my steps in.
Hi – it’s Friday and I’ve completed Ballet Sculpt, 2 in 1 Toning and Hiit it Hard Cardio, over a couple of days. I’d love to finish this 5 wk plan before Christmas. This year we are going to Devon for Christmas (I live in the Midlands). I know (pause) it’s not really in the same league as the Himalayas!!! My parents have hired a cottage there (it’s more like the size of a house though, with a sauna and games tables), as they want a big friend and family Christmas whilst they are fit and healthy. Not sure they’ve thought this through – I have no idea how we’ll pack everything we need into the car! Maureen – I hope you are ok, please post. I’d love a virtual coffee with you this weekend. I’m quite boring, just a medium Americano for me – what do you like?
Thursday- stretch day . Before my busy work day I did rise and shine yoga . I haven’t done that one in a very long time . It is a terrific way to wake up the body .Ive gotten in over 19,000 steps so far today and have decided that I’m done fir the day . I will do a bit if my own house work before going to bed .
Hi everyone, I am managing to do the very flexible strength, stretch and step challenge. Just not able to check in as often as I’d like . It is great challenge and just what I needed during this very very very stressful time . The holidays can be tricky and with the added issues with my son it’s double tricky this year. Yesterday before work I did fusion mat. It was great . Today before work I did ws2’s tone and flow. I always forget how sneaky that one is. Those hugs are rough.Work was a 3 house day got in over 22,000 steps. This time of year houses are always harder to clean due to all the decorations and extra visitors. I was going to stretch before bed but once I sat down I don’t want to get up . Hoping to get in some cardio tomorrow after work in addition to the stretching before work .
Tired and I’ve only managed one barre routine this week. The silver lining is I’ve actually managed around 13,000 steps each day (that is great for me as 10,000 is a push!!) I’m the nutty woman pounding the streets around the College I work at, in the pitch black at 7am! I’ve just watched the clips of Jessica’s new DVDs – they look fab, and hopefully will inspire me to maybe fit in two workouts today. Hope you enjoyed that Indian Buffet Jackie Mc?
