I know, I know, I have been slack with my blogging over the last couple of weeks but I have been in recovery mode after the busy couple of weeks leading up to the end of Term 3….where has this year gone?? I am currently enjoying the school holidays with the kidlets and have made some progress on my current hitlist, yay!! So I have a few posts that I am itching to share and I will try and complete them this week. If you have been missing me (you never know, someone might) don’t forget to pop over and check out my facebook page or #theexercisehitlist on instagram which I usually update fairly regularly.
To get back into the blogging groove I thought I would kick off with a quick update post on my journey to Adventurethon Albany which is starting to loom closer and closer. School holidays has made training a little harder but I am happy to say that I am still managing to keep the sessions up.
Monday – Rest Day. Absolutely exhausted after the sleepover weekend for 14 boys.
Tuesday – Ride on exercise bike, 60 mins and 36km.
Wednesday – CrossFit in the morning. Week 5 run 1 of running program in afternoon while kids at basketball practice.
Thursday – Ride on exercise bike, 45 mins and 25km. Jog to park in the afternoon with the kids on bikes.
Friday – CrossFit in the morning, Week 5 run 2 in afternoon with my 4 yr old on his bike (before school pick up)
Saturday – Exercise bike 60mins and 35km
Sunday – Week 5 run 3, I ran for just over 20mins and completed 4km without stopping! This was a big moment for me and I felt quite proud of myself. Went mountain biking with the kids in the afternoon.
Monday – Exercise bike 70mins and 41km. Took the kids to Kings Park Variety Place and to the Anzac memorial.
Tuesday – Rest Day. School holidays so I took the kids for a beach walk and play.
Wednesday – CrossFit. Took the kids to a local creek for a play with their friends.
Thursday – Packed the bikes in the car for the kids to ride while I did a run (Wk6,run1) along the beautiful Swan River in Perth. Had a play and a picnic after the run.
Friday – CrossFit. Preparing for a camping trip.
Saturday – Snuck away for a run around the Lake at our camping spot.
Sunday – Small ride around the lake with the family. Wet and miserable day.
All in all not too bad considering it is the school holidays. Nutrition and diet was a complete write off this week, aaarrgghh will have to get back on top of this as soon as possible. Really struggling to eat the way I need to and will have to get back to recording a food diary I think. I have one more week of holidays to get through and then I will review where I am at and start stepping up a notch again.
