Initially I was excited for Juneathon Day 14 as we were signed up to do The City Mile – we were going to run in the Family Wave – but due to my injured foot we decided it would be a sensible decision not to go!
This was such a hard decision to make – I was excited for my Pink One and Blue One to get their first medals – fortunately we’d not told them we were going so I wasn’t letting them down too much! I feel so sad, so not feeling it for today, so my exercise has been somewhat halfhearted! 😩
I did an hour of house work – including vacuuming and putting away a load of laundry, which mean a few trips up and down the stairs.
I also did 14 toe touches, sit and reaches and sit ups/tummy crunches (ouch – I must be doing something right!!!)
So when I woke up this morning I wasn’t feeling so great, which was annoying and I was worried it would affect my run or mean I wouldn’t make it out for a run, but thankfully as the day went on I felt better asides from the ache in my right leg courtesy of skipping!!! Ive been stretching to try and alleviate the discomfort and tightness especially in my calf and my right glut…ahem…
So I finally managed to go for a very pleasant run with my friend Kay, we chattered as we ran (I’m quite impressed I can actually run and talk at the same time – proof to me that I am improving) and we surprised ourselves by running 5.56km, and more importantly we missed the inclement weather which I can hear lashing down on the conservatory whilst I write this blog! Nice!
Kay is a lovely running companion, very encouraging and motivating – we missed having Deputy Helen with us though! It’s so good having two great friends to exercise with, they’ve kept me going for which I thank them wholeheartedly! I appreciate their support more than they know! My run did help ease the ache in my leg – here’s hoping my legs still feels good in the morning!!!
When I got in from my run – I did manage to fit in some Rhythmic Kung Fu and Rhythmic Boxing! Makes me laugh and feels good!
Super Hula Hoop Rhythmic Boxing Super Advanced
Rhythmic Kung Fu
All in all lots of exercised completed and currently feeling good – long may it continue!!!
