Day 275: Lots of walking and some Jillian Michaels

I did a lot of walking on Saturday.

Well…I did some walking on Saturday…not a route march or anything…but I ended up doing 4.7 miles (7.5km) which is not too bad

Rachel...looking all 1940s in Winchester

All this was in the process of investigating the venue for a wedding that my friend Rachel and I are doing the photos for in August. we then went and had a bit of a jaunt around Winchester because I have never been and Rachel went to uni there…it also meant I got to take some pictures, one of which was of Rachel.

<— there it is!

she doesn’t have horns..that is a 1940s victory roll hairstyle! I am aware of hairstyles in other people…it is not really something that happens to me…I just get extreme curls!

Extreme curls and laziness when it comes to hair styling…

Anyhow, after a pleasant morning walking around Winchester (and learning stuff like Winchester was once the capital of England…apparently people know things like that…I have a blotchy grasp of history…) I made my way home to the tune of an internal debate about whether I should go for a run considering I ran on Friday and had a charity run coming up on Sunday .  Eventually I remembered the advice I gave myself a couple of weeks ago about not running too many days in a row and decided to do something else instead.

(I decided…and also slightly fell asleep and ran out of time…shhh)

The something else I chose was level 3 30 day shred

while this might look like a normal is actually part of a jumping lunge!

It was still hard! It contains such things as mountain climbers and jumping lunges and plank rows with leg raises.

Plank rows with leg raises…there is something I am fairly sure I couldn’t have done 6 months ago! If you had told me then I had to do a plank and lift first my arm of the floor then my leg (after putting my arm back down…obviously) I would just have looked at you and fallen on my face…maybe due to the effort, and maybe just in shock!

Day 275 Complete 😀
