Bank Holiday Weekend ... Chill or Exercise ... or both!?!?!?


Today is the start of the Bank Holiday Weekend.

I didn't need to get up early this morning, but I actually set my alarm clock and got up at 07:30 so that I could do a PiYo workout before hubby surfaced and we got on with our day!! I surprised myself as I didn't even need to drag myself out of bed. I was energetic from the start (which is highly surprising and not like me normally on a Saturday morning!!)

I did the Define Upper Body workout today which left me feeling energised, but it's funny because my core and thighs are achy tnis morning. Each workout targets a specific area, but they all have a bit of an "all over body workout" included in them. I think that's why I'm finding them a little addictive (today is Day 4 og PiYo!!).

By 08:30 I was ready to get breakfast and face the day as we had got a busy one planned ... various errands needed to be done and shopping for the cats (i swear they eat better than we do at times ... Lol !!).

I think tomorrow I'll have as a rest day ... but I'm sure the chores in the house will act as a mini workout!!


Today was definitely a day of rest, as we decided to head out for a lovely Sunday lunch at our local pub. Steak and kidney pudding (I don't eat kidney so sat there for a few minutes discecting my pie!!), roast potatoes, yorkie pud, veg and gravy ... mmmmmmmm it was delish!!

We came home, had a bit of a movie marathon and chilled out for the rest of the day. We just couldn't move after eating that lunch!!

Bank Holiday Monday

After yesterday's chill out day, I decided that I was going to go for a run as I haven't been on one since last Monday.

I was going to run outside, but when I looked out of the window it was pouring with rain!! So instead, I decided to head out into the garage and go for a run on the treadmill instead.

I chose to run for 30 minutes in total but I wasn't concerned with the distance this morning. I ran on a level 2 incline for 23 minutes straight after doing a short walking warm up and ended with a short walking cool down. I can definitely say that running on the treadmill felt different today from the last time, and I'm not sure if that has something to do with the PiYo I've been doing ... I think it might be ... It's the first time I've done any running since starting PiYo, and I noticed that my shins and calfs didn't ache at the end of my run.

I'm definitely feeling good about myself today and I'm really pleased that by doing the PiYo it's helping me with my running. Hopefully, I'll be able to run outside soon ...

Now to get on with enjoying the rest of my Bank Holiday Monday x x x
