1 In crossfit/ daily life/ fitness/ running

7 days, 8 workouts

Life’s busy but the good news is that our renovation should finish in about 2 weeks. It started 6 months ago so I’m more than ready for it to be over and some kind of order returning to my life.

I prioritise exercise after everything I have to do re work, kids and the house, so blogging isn’t very regular at the moment. I’m sure you don’t mind though because there are a gazillion great blogs out there to read πŸ™‚ (If you don’t know many, go to my Bloglovin page and check out either my followers or the similar blogs)

Since all I do at the moment is either hassle the kids about homework or clean building dust off every surface in my house or exercise, I’m going to blog about what’s most exciting – exercise πŸ™‚

After a rest day following theΒ Royal Parks Half Marathon, I hit the ground running again.

On Tuesday it was Crossfit:


On Wednesday it was a short run after school drop-off (I don’t work on Wednesdays):


Followed by Bikram:


I’m enjoying the hot yoga although the smell of all the sweat gets to me sometimes. It doesn’t even smell like BO as such, it smells like ammonia. Β It feels good to sweat so much though, I feel so clean afterwards.

On Thursday it was back to Crossfit for some much needed upper body work:


On Friday I back squatted up to 60kg as part of our sets and only later looked up my stats to see that my previous back squat 1 rep max was 57.5kg πŸ˜€ :


Saturday was a busy day with domestic stuff so I only managed to swim a bit when we were at the pool with the kids:


On Sunday it bucketed down rain the entire day but I managed to squeeze in a run in the afternoon when it wasn’t raining very heavily:


And today it’s Monday again and Crossfit time:


Pistols are painful but no pain, no gain. Dumbbell snatches were awesome. I felt like a machine πŸ™‚

Tomorrow I have a busy day at work with meetings but I’m hoping to squeeze in a 8km run at lunchtime. I just do not know how to take rest days anymore – I figure 1 day a week, which is usually Saturday, is enough πŸ™‚

So that’s been my week. Did you notice I have a new blog header? πŸ˜‰

Have a great week!
