This week was rather fun. I only managed two runs but I really enjoyed them, plus I got to the gym.
So Monday I went to my Pilates class. I do miss it when I can’t go, even though some of the moves are really hard and I ache afterwards. This week wasn’t so bad but it was surprisingly busy.
Tuesday was a nice 4k run lunchtime run with my work’s running group. We had a mixed ability group running with us so I stayed near the back and did a bit more walking than I usually do.
Wednesday was my club night and we had a very dark run along the canal. I joked about people not falling in but I do worry about that happening, especially in the dark, so I think I might avoid the canal until it gets lighter.
Friday I got to the gym and did a lot of strength work. I used the rowing machine for the first time which gave me a good workout and then did a set on the upper body resistance machines. I ended my session by doing some plank/downward dog combos which was quite exhausting.
I’m including my visit to the Animal Aid Christmas Fayre in my round up this week. It didn’t involve any running or exercise (although the I did watch the press up competition!) but I did meet a lot of Vegan Runners members so we talked about running a lot!
I must admit that a lot of cake was eaten, both by me and fellow VRUK members. I mean who could say no to things like vegan Boston creme doughnuts, brownies or strawberry slices? I also sampled quite a lot of chocolate and can highly recommend the delicious salted peanut white chocolate bar from Solkiki.
So how was your week running? Did you do any Christmas related activities? Did you eat a lot of cake like I did?
