My target is bikini fitness, but I have an interim target of the 5k Race for Life this Sunday. This is exciting. This week I will be...
- First; calming down. Not running too much and doing lots of stretching. I've got a bit of an ache at the top of my hips and don't want anything to come between me and the finishing line.
- Second; planning my carbo-loading for Saturday evening. He he. Training for a bikini AND carbo loading. Yet one more strangely lush paradox brought to you by the strangely lush fitness plan.
- Third; plucking up courage to ask more people at work for sponsorship. Eek. That seems hard. You know - they are real people and everything and might not want to fork out.
At this point in the plan I'm relatively pleased with how things are going. I'm doing bits of yoga, sit ups and stretches whenever I get the chance and I'm running regularly. Pouring water into a glass and drinking it doesn't seem to be the onerous chore that I thought it was. On the other hand, Peaches' snacks are still not completely safe from my grabby paws and weekend socialising (that's my wine-drinking euphimism) is no better than it ever was.
Signing up for the run has kept me motivated and after that, I'll only have two more weeks of stomach crunches till I strut my stuff - exaggerating for literary effect - on a Greek beach. The best part of all this has been the running. Getting out at lunchtime, being in the sunshine and feeling a little more comfortable in (and out of) my clothes has helped me see the benefits of going out to paid work.
What about you guys? Hands up whose moved about a bit this week.
