I've had a big week as far as training goes I've pushed play and got out everyday doing something, I feel like I am making progress!
I thought I'd try something a bit different this week. My plan for the week was less more often, as they always say less is more. I cut down my walk/run to 5km and into the pool for a quick 300-500mtrs, I did this everyday. I even managed to run a full 1km this week, so progress in just 4 weeks going from running 1 lamp-post to running a full 1km.
I've had training with a view this week as I headed up trig a couple of times, a great booster for my legs, great for the buttocks and after finishing I am on a super high from all the adrenaline. It is a killer...after the halfway mark you just have to dig it in, you feel great when you hit the top. I took some advice from one of our regular swimmers and jogged a little way up lifting my knees high and it felt good not as hard as I thought it would, I'll continue to work on jogging up trig.
Keeping up my low impact exercise after trig I went straight to the pool, I highly recommend doing this after any new exercise or exercise that may put intense strain on muscles or joints. I've continued to worked hard on my swimming to increase my fitness. I had 5 days in the pool still trying to conquer 300 metres in 5mins.
My new shoes from Shoe Clinic are just the best, they've softened to my step, no more pain, they are perfect thanks to Shoe Clinic, Palmerston North.
Great Forest Events is getting closer, I'm feeling a lot fitter, I wake in the middle of the night and say to my husband 'oh no I feel like going for a walk' so my body is on the right track.
