The life of a runner, mother, radiopharmacist and vicar's wife – that's me!
I’m now in the second week of the Nike Training Club workouts. In order not to wear out the carpet on the bottom stair I invested in a simple stepper.
Naomi had a go – she did 10 step-ups. Unfortunately my workout had me stepping for a minute each time for 3 sets which was a bit more effort. I have to say that it was considerably less fun doing this workout without the kids this week. I think I will have to do a bit more encouraging to get them involved. It was still good though and I was much better at the ‘hollow body’ (which works the abs) than last week. I quite like this particular workout because it is a good mixture of things that I can do and things that I can’t really do.
Tomorrow I have to run a mile and time it. This is to set a bench mark for improvement over the coming weeks. I’m in two minds whether to do it on the treadmill or outside.
I did remember to do a bit of stretching after the workout this time so I’m rather hoping my calves won’t be really stiff tomorrow. I also did 1 mile warm-up and 1 mile warm down so I’m optimistic that I won’t be too stiff.
The weather isn’t much better. The sun came out temporarily but even my work colleagues admitted that they had put the heating on at the weekend.
