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.
Sunday and I treated myself to Jessica’s Four Mile Power Walk so I decided to combine Days 23 and 24 to get back on track. I started with the recommended Day 23 Total Body from WS3 as my early morning workout and combined that with Miles One and Two (recommendation for Day 24). Late morning I went out for a walk with my husband and we covered the family trail on the north of the island. This afternoon I did Day 23 Total Body Sculpt and Miles 3 and 4 from my new Power Walk Download. I have really enjoyed everything about this weekend (even being a sloth yesterday was really enjoyable too).
Love the Four Mile Power Walk. It will be really helpful for May and June on those days when it is just to hot or wet to go outside to get my steps in.
Thanks Jacy and Jessica for your kind words, motivation and inspiration. I really value them.
mholdsworth, Maureen and Holly I really hope you will join us on Spring Ahead. Jacy and I are finishing week 4 or round 2 of Jumpstart and it would be brilliant if you ladies could join us for Spring Ahead.
I didn’t manage a workout last night, I knew it would be a tough week but I was not prepared for how tired I’d be. I fell asleep as soon as I drove in last night. Today is a new day and I have lots of housework planned as I’m so behind and a roast chicken to cook (as my family have had rubbish meals from me this week!) This morning though I will go for cardio fusion flow and a nice stretch😀Have a great weekend everyone
Yesterday I did the recommended Core Control as my early morning workout but after a very busy, busy day I decided to rest for the evening and have an early night.
Today I was planning to go on a very hard hike up West Dog Tooth. There is rain forecast so I have just come off the hike. I feel bad letting the leader know at such late notice but the route is steep and rocky and with rain it will be wet and slippery and could be dangerous. The leader probably thinks I am a wimp but for my own safety I decided to change my rsvp. I dropped her a message to give her my reasons. I know I have made the right decision.
Thank you for keeping me going through this week with your posts Jackie😀
I really struggled on my rest day through a long work day, I left the house at 6.45am and got home around 10pm. Sat for fat too long. The next day I tried the knee friendly barre workout when I got home from work but I was too tired really and I struggled and didn’t enjoy it. Gave up before the end which is not like me. Feeling better tonight and I’ve done total body toned💪
