I don’t know about you, but I have been finding it really hard to run in the evenings now that the nights are drawing in. All I want to do is curl up on the sofa and eat cake.
Monday: 3M easy run – this a was delightful run. I put on some seriously cheesy tunes, ditched the Garmin and just went out.
Tuesday: Ashtanga yoga class
Wednesday: 3k treadmill run and then 30 mins on the bike
Thursday: 4k run with some sprints
Saturday: 4.5k run during my lunch break
Sunday: Meant to be an 8 miler, but couldn’t face it (too cold).
I have plenty of time anyway so not too fussed, but I found it tough to get out there so I might have to start running before work.
On Thursday I was invited to the Zero Calorie Advent launch party. Zero Calorie Advent is a fun alternative to the usual unhealthy chocolate-based calendar. In December, healthy recipes, free classes and video workouts will be posted up for fitness lovers like me who hate the idea of losing the workout/healthy eating momentum over Christmas.
The event started with a run with the Goodgym from Covent Garden to Somerset house where we helped out a community project by ripping out radiator covers and lifting sheets of plywood. We then hit the road again from Somerset House over the Millennium bridge towards the Tate Gallery and back to the event again for some well-deserved Presecco.
I had such a good time and finally got to meet some bloggers in the flesh, including Elle, Leah, and Katy. It was also a great opportunity to donate my entire trainer collection (it was getting out of hand) to a good cause – A Mile in Her Shoes. This wonderful charity encourages homeless women to get out and run.
