I’m excited to be doing these monthly fitness update posts. A roundup of my fitness journey. This is where I will be totally accountable for any laziness and where I can be proud of my successes!!
I’m not one for worrying about what the scales say, I care much more about how my clothes fit. I’m proud to say that I am back into my pre pregnancy clothes, thanks to a mixture of breastfeeding, exercise and of course I can’t rule out genetics too (thanks mum and dad!!). Despite being happy with my size I still have things I want to work on. I want to tone up more and I want to improve my over all fitness levels.
After a pretty poor, OK very poor month in February, I am back on track! I set myself realistic targets that kept me motivated!
My fitness diary for March.
1st March: Yoga class
3rd March: Yoga at home
3rd March: 5k run
8th March: Yoga class
13th March: 5k run
15th March: Yoga class
19th March: Yoga at home
20th March: 5k run
21st March: Yoga at home x2
22nd March: Yoga class
27th March: 6.5k run
On the week starting 8th March I didn’t get round to doing any yoga at home, pretty poor really but I have tried to make up for it by doing it twice this week!
We have a new yoga instructor at our Yoga class and he’s amazing. I’m working harder than I have done before as he really pushes us, it’s great! It’s been inspiring me to do more at home too.
I’m really proud to have met my running target this month, after a little dip in motivation and form I feel like I’m back on track! 5k is feeling less of a slog and more of a steady distance now I’m settled into my new route, the hills are less daunting now too.
I managed my first run over 5k, it was surprisingly comfortable despite the extra distance including a really steep hill!
Targets for April.
Im upping my targets a little this month, it may be a bit ambitious but I’m feeling good so I’ll give it a shot!
*Continue going to yoga class once a week
*Practice yoga at home at least twice a week
*Run at least once a week, minimum 5k distance
*Run further than 5k twice
