After crashing my car I had some minor aches and pains and so I essentially stopped all my exercise for the best part of the week. On reflection it wasn’t really necessary, but once I stop I find it really hard to get going again. All my best intentions for a healthy and fit December fell by the wayside.
I’m so annoyed with myself.
By Sunday 10th December I hadn’t done a single yoga class in the month, and had done one 3Km run at the gym. Steve and I were booked into a 10Km run that day but it began to snow the night before making it near impossible to motivate myself to go, but we went and it was grim.
By the first few steps my feet were getting numb, then after about 10 steps I literally couldn’t feel them. Snow was coming down in clumps and whilst it was beautiful it definitely felt very challenging.
We completed the race in 1 hour, 10mins and 43 seconds which considering the conditions was pretty fucking good.
I feel like by turning up and being able to run a 10Km despite the shitty running commitment I have shown over November and December shows my fitness has really improved, but I so want to be more consistent with it all though.
Today is 22nd December and I’ve not run since the 10th although I have now done 5 yoga classes (one every 4 days this month). My aim to complete 1 class every 2 days this year is now slipping from reach but I’ve had a difficult few weeks with work and so I’ve struggled to stick with my plans.
This year to date I have done 165 yoga classes in 356 days. How are there only 9 days left this year? HOW?
To make my goal I need to complete 183 classes so that leaves me with 18 left to go. That’s 2 a day which is annoying, difficult, but not impossible.
Steve and I are due to run 8 miles tomorrow for a virtual medal and we have a few more virtual medal races to run over the next 9 days to add to the medal rack.
I have finished work today until 27th and have a chance tomorrow to sit and plan how I’m going to make this work. Watch this space.
