well it was wednesday…so I danced 😀 it was practice for the coming weekend’s festivities in the Isle of Wight 😀
It was a variable practice where I danced ok once I had got very very angry and cried for a while… It is a long story, but all to do with a comment about being too heavy to move quickly and my brain convincing me it was true…
It isn’t true, and I know that this morning 😀 I knew that last night too really…
I also went for a walk during my lunchbreak and met a medium sized cat who didn’t seem to have any quests for me to go on, but did let me stroke his little head 😀 😀
Daily mileage 4.05
Total June mileage 53
(yes I know I should have posted this yesterday, but I was busy finding my flamethrower)
Today’s favourite things are squats and kettlebells 🙂
They took place in my PT session which happened at 7 o’clock this morning. I think I have had PT at 7 o’clock on a tuesday for nearly the entire duration of this blog (which is a startlingly long time) so this can’t be too surprising really…
I had PT this morning and I did squats, and kettlebells, and big heavy slam ball, well, slams…
It was all pretty blooming awesome. Even if I did have to do sets of 10 of everything, which cause me to complain because 10 is lots of anything to do in a row!
(This post should have gone out yesterday… but I fell asleep)
Well…after all that dancing over the weekend, what else could I do today but walk!
I walked twice though so it was definitely good exercise 😁 I went once at lunchtime and once after work…
lunchtime I went on one of my normal routes around where I work…
I took some photos 🙂
After work, I went over to the downs link path where I live, and accepted the challenge for the second time in the day, if taking photos of a place I go all the time and making it look different!!
Miles for the day 3.8
Total Miles for June 46.6
I know, I know, exercise every day and blog every day… well this weekend will be a to have a joint post because I have been living in a field since Friday… and not only that, but I have been dancing… a lot!!
Look the field in which I have been living…
I have been at Wimborne folk festival all weekend, I have been doing a lot of dancing and it has been blooming hard work!
Mostly good fun (Except for a small amount of time when I was unable to interact sensibly with people…but had to anyway..) but still hard work…
I think a lot of walking (16 Miles over the three days) and a lot of dancing (19 dances over two days) in a good deal of heat definitely counts and blooming once for the weekend is a consequence of being extremely tired for the whole weekend!!
I didn’t get too many pictures of the dancing…I was too busy dancing 😁
Today started in the gym… which is unusual for a Thursday…
I met my friend Jeanette and we did squats, and sled pushes and kettlebell sumo squats and slams… it was awesome 😁
When lunchtime rolled around, I decided it would be wise to walk rather than run, mainly because getting changed at work is just awkward!
I took pictures 😁
And just in case people think I work in a rural area… this is what half the walk looks like…
Day 7 done 🙂
Miles today 3.54
Total June miles: 27.2
I forwent the gym this morning in favour of a good leg prodding..
Or sports massage in real language 😁
In aid of keeping my legs in good working order, I decided that I would walk this lunchtime. I didn’t walk super fast because I got somewhat distracted by playing with my camera…well my phone camera anyway…
It was a good walk and lovely to get out of the office and into the sunshine 😊
Basically I wandered about and played with Hipstamatic and rediscovered the double exposure setting 😁 I look frowny in that pic…I wasn’t I promise!
Later that day…
There was dancing!! Lots of it…
Well of course there was it is Wednesday 🙂
I did forget to take pics though so here are a couple more from the weekend 😊
(Thanks to Andrew for taking them)
First thing this morning I did a lot of deadlifts!! I had a PT session with Matt and it consisted almost entirely of deadlifts… light ones for a warm up (after a proper warm up) then heavy ones, then a drop set then paused deadlifts it worked out to be something like 56 deadlifts with various different weights up to a maximum of 80kg 🙂 we threw in some rows too just for fun!
It was pretty awesome though… I love deadlifts 😀
There I am looking all cheerful after deadlifts 😁
Later that day…
At lunchtime in fact, I decided that as it wasn’t as hot as it had been, I’d get myself out for a run! It was pretty slow tbh, possibly because of all the deadlifts but I think I did more running and less walking so that is good!!
I don’t think I look quite so cheerful there… but that is because running (although I actually quite like it now) is not as awesome as deadlifts!!
Even later that day…
I went to my pottery class where I found that my lovely pot was all glazed and pretty!!
I promptly started another one which is going to be similar in design but taller and narrower 😁
All in all it was a pretty good day 😁😁
(Miles walked 3.4)
Well you would have walked too after that weekend!!
Today was definitely a day for less vigorous activity 😁
It was a nice walk though and I met a cat who, I am pretty sure, wanted to take me on a quest. I had to go back to work unfortunately so I had to say goodbye to him…
With a tail like that it had to be a quest!!
I have just noticed that it is June…
As I have been a bit rubbish over the last few weeks…ok not rubbish… ill with horrible dizzy inducing labyrinthitis, the end of may got away from me a bit…
But anyway, June, which means…juneathon!! Which, for the uninitiated, means exercising and blogging about it every day! Perfect kick up the bum I think!!
So to kick the whole thing off I went to the gym this morning 😊
Ok I went to the gym first then remembered it was June and decided to do juneathon… but it still counts!!
It was fun 🙂 I trained legs…woohoo squats!!
Also, I did wear shoes although the picture implies otherwise!!
Yay for the gym! And shoes!! And not being dizzy!!
