From Fat to Fit Week 15 (31.03.14)

I think I am starting to get my mojo back finally as I managed quite a lot of exercise this week. Still eating crap but that’s another story.

Tuesday
5.5K round the lake with baby Bear in the pram 2 mins walk 2 mins run all the way round. I find that this way I don’t feel so daunted by setting out to run 5.5K as that seems too much. If I break it down into 2 minute chunks then I find that I cover more distance than I think I am going to and it doesn’t seem as hard and before I know it I have finished. So I will stick with that for a while and build up my running again slowly  so that I don’t injure myself.

Wednesday
The original plan was to go to the gym in the morning but due to a smashed car window incident (not my fault) I had to cancel. I more than made up for it though by walking all the way (uphill) to the Bears kinder with the Bear and baby Bear in the double pram to drop him off and then walking back home and then doing the whole thing again. There are a lot of hills so it was pretty hard work with both of them.

Thursday
Our car was still unsafe to drive so I had to walk again and catch the tram to pick up the Bear.

Friday
Husbs mum and I took the kids to the park. I ran alongside the Bear on his bike and we then did the zipwire and climbing wall at the park.

Sunday
We all headed out to Sherbrooke Forest in the Dandenong Ranges and ended up doing a 7.5k hike round the forest complete with pram. It was a bit precarious in places and pretty steep so it was hard going, but between the 3 adults, myself, husb and his mum, we managed to get the kids round every way we could.

Think I am going to be aching tomorrow!

My progress so far . . .

  1. Looking good Rhian! Sounds like you’ve definitely got your mojo back. Nothing like a bit of incidental exercise. Hope all is ok with the car window now. xox

  2. You look great Rhian!
