Day 223: Another tricky Thursday!

(Ok…I know I am a long way behind…I apologise and am doing my best to catch up I promise)

So why was Thursday tricky?

Well Thursdays are always tricky as I don’t have anything fixed on a Thursday at the moment, but this Thursday was particularly tricky because of the aforementioned Tuesday Cold.  Which will henceforth be referred to as the cold because it persisted, against my wishes, in being present beyond Tuesday! How rude!


To attempt to combat The Cold, I thought some time in the fresh air would help. Some time away from the silent office that is both freezing and stuff by turns.

as it turned out, it was raining.


…and only at the start of the walk, it stopped quite early on!

I was right…the fresh air did clear my head a bit, but the slight inability to breathe properly and the perpetual snottiness did mar things a little…and annoyingly made me walk slower, and thus go less far than I would have liked! (41 mins 2.6km)

However…I believe the saying goes…every little gets you one step closer to mordor…

Come to think of it, that might not actually be the saying, but it should be!

That was lunchtime, and by the time I got home I was feeling decidedly rubbish and seriously considering letting the walk be the days exercise, but my stupid brain wasn’t having any of it!

Stupid brain…not helpful!

So to shut my brian up I did:

3 x (10 plank jacks, 10 squats, 10 pike press ups (only they were normal press ups in the last time through))
3x (10 bridges, 10s body hollow)
40s plank
some stretching.

and then I sat down and tried to make my cold go away!

Day 223 Complete 🙂
