Rested up and raring to go

Hello Fudgey Friends,

I'm feeling much better and more rested after a week of very little activity. I only trained for an hour last week which compared to the 5 or 6 hours I had been doing including an average of 25 miles running a week was practically nothing, but I felt after the half marathon I really needed a break to let my body & mind recover.

There's not much news to report from the weekend I've been pretty wiped out & had a migraine on Sunday afternoon that ended up in me going to bed & sleeping for a few hours. Thankfully this isn't something that I suffer from regularly.
I did manage to watch 3 whole films over the last few days though - which for me is something of an achievement as I have a bad habit of dozing off. We watched Leon - OMG how have I never seen this movie? - I loved it. We also watched the 3rd Blade movie - Blade Trinity - it wasn't as good as the first 2 but still worth watching and last night we watched The Avengers - a little odd, but then the tv series was too.

Mr Fudgey and I both had the day off yesterday but never did anything special - it was just nice to have a day relaxing together.

Back to work today - confused already with the days after having the day off yesterday.

I had a personal training session this afternoon - which was fantastic and just what I needed after my week of resting
quick warm up on cross trainer
3 x tri set of Olympic bar squats, 1 min ski sit & 1 min swiss ball plank
3 x superset 12 bosu lunges each leg with 12.5kg barbell & 12 squats with 15lb dumbbell
Hill intervals 6% gradient 30 sec at 7km/h & 1 min at 9.2km/h - 6 times - I felt sick!
3 x superset 12 reverse curls & 3 ab combo thingys that hurt ;-$
finishing with maximal press up test - managed 39 and a half.

There seems to be lots going on at the moment for loads of people I know, people coping with loss, friends & colleagues who are very ill, people under a lot of stress, people job hunting, people flat hunting or moving house & people who have family or friends who are in hospital - I'm sending everyone loads of love, hugs & positive thoughts.

I have one last thing to say before I go....

An enormous Well Done to my Mum, Sister & Nieces who completed their sponsored walk in aid of the girls' nursery. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of them with their medals.

Take Care everyone

lots of love

  1. Glad to see you are feeling back up to working out - must have been that ice bath! I am still stiff today, have just been biking and walking a bit. Plan to return to the gym tomorrow.
