MY FITNESS ROUTINE

MY FITNESS ROUTINE

Before we start, I’m going to say that I’ve been awful at this recently. Really awful. But we’re not going to dwell on that!

As I’ve said in a previous post, towards the end of last year I made a promise with myself – to get fit again. Why? Because since starting my job I’ve found it hard to stay motivated to go to the gym in the morning / evening when I’m shattered, which has led me to feel generally more stressed out, lethargic and self-conscious again.

So Dom and I joined Classpass – which really helped with my workout motivation. There are so many different classes available that we could do whatever we wanted – spin, HIIT, yoga – anything!

Now? I’ve cut down on the number of workout classes – partly due to uncertainty at work (I can’t guarantee I’ll have time for a lunchtime spin or that I’ll make a 6PM class) and partly due to my upcoming events. We’re running the Cardiff Half in October – so my workout routine is more cardio based again.

I try and run 2 or 3 times a week, which is occasionally swapped for a cycle (either stationary or on a Boris Bike to / from work, to build up endurance) and a workout thrown in for good measure. But don’t worry, I’m not doing too much – that’s a good week – most weeks aren’t like this! What have I found? I’m faster and running is more comfortable than it’s been in a longggg time!

Update: I’ve hit a bit of a road block recently, as you may know if you follow my Instagram – I’ve had a bit of a back injury so I’ve not been able to run as much as I’d like. I’m seeing a physio and trying to get back to normal – don’t worry I’ll be doing a separate post on this!

So variety may be the spice of life, when it comes to workout motivation, but I guess when it comes to gearing up to a specific event, consistency is key.
