I made a chocolate orange swirl cake last night. Anyone fancy a cuppa and a slice of cake?
I'm 39 and despite the running/cycling/ eating very well, my middle is spreading. Muffin top jeans is not an attractive look, so I have yesterday I did my first HIIT session. My number 3 daughter (who isn't particularly interested in running) did it with me and she is in better shape than I am this morning! 20-30 mins of HIIT is awfully hard work and I'm not sure I have enough self-discipline to do it 3/4 times a week. Going out for a slow run is much more appealing!
Welcome Legs. And you are very wise. Starting out with every other day and building up slowly will help protect you from injury.
MC - sounds like you are having a wonderful holiday
2hr run sounds great Jude. I'm looking forward to getting back to long runs in the autumn.
Last night I took my Big Girl out for a late 5k run just before bedtime. We had some old friends visiting from a distance away and once they left I could tell that she needed to run off some of the excess jumpiness and tension from the day. Apparently her friend had been talking about boyfriends the whole day, which my 12yr old has no interest in at all, thank goodness. I have three daughters just starting puberty and I'm not sure how I'm going to cope!
AF - sorry to hear about the funeral and the sadness. Hope you enjoy your holiday.
Jude - Wow! Your daughter is amazing
Franny - I'm rather envious of your short haircut. I like my hair cut, but being fairly tall and rather loud I have discovered that having long hair makes me less threatening to others. It's strange but appearances really do have an effect.
MC - hope you are enjoying Switzerland.
This morning was my 100th parkrun And just as wonderfully my 7yr old Smidge ran the whole 5k for the first time! She isn't too sure if she will keep going, but I hope she does and also falls in love with running like two of my other girls.
