Juneathon Days 22 & 23: Running, arms and abs

So yesterday was a bit of a washout exercise wise. I managed a few bicep curls and jogging on the stop whilst the kettle was boiling (something I do to kill time, sounds nuts I know!), but that was it.

I well and truly made up for it today though. I got a new 5k PB by almost a minute this morning at Parkrun and I was so psyched after that that I did Jillian Michaels’ six week six pack, which is a mixture of planks, ab-related cardio (mountain climbers, plank jacks), and sit ups, and Davina’s body buff arm workout, which is a great if you only have 10 minutes free. One thing I noticed today is that for Davina’s more static arm workout, my 2.5 kg hand weights (5 lbs) feel a little light and I could probably do with 3-4 kg (6-8 lbs), whereas for Jillian’s 30-day shred, I wish I had 1.5 kg (3 lb) weights as it’s more a mixture of cardio and strength, and zaps your energy much more.

  1. Am really impressed with how you’re managing to keep exercising and work for yourself. I never seem to find time to workout (or maybe I’m just very good with the excuses)!
    Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for the inspiration!

    • Thank you! I just try and do minimum 10 minutes a day – that way it’s easier to stick to it. I find if I over commit to things I tend to do nothing at all.
