Stats: 13 Mar – 19 Mar

Not quite the week I had planned. But, it’s still the come back, so let’s not get too crazy here.

imageThere was running and that’s a good thing. And the running was more than before and that’s a good thing. And nothing hurt and that’s a really good thing.

What was it I said last week?

Progress, not perfection.

Stats: 6 Mar – 12 Mar

There was running!

Overall, not much else to report for the week. But it’s progress, not perfection we’re looking for here. 

I took the walk/run approach with more walking than running, as you can see. Then, one nice solid kilometer and back to walk/run with a traffic light pause to wrap things up.

Was it a slow 5km? Sure. Did my dodgy hamstring and screwed up foot pull up ok. Yes! And that’s a win. 

Stats: 11 – 17 April

Monday: 5km run

Where: Sydney CBD | When: Morning | Felt: Lost. I just can’t get my head around Sydney. I get lost. Every. Single. Time.

Art Gallery Sydney
Art Gallery of New South Wales. Found on my run.

Tuesday: Rest

Wednesday: Rest

Thursday: Personal Training

Where: City studio | When: Morning | Felt: Like I was going to throw up. I worked hard and loved every minute.

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Rest

Sunday: Rest

Things to talk about:

  • Despite my determination to do better, I slept in way too often again this week. I’ll keep working on it.
  • I was complimented on my lifting at the studio on Thursday. My form is apparently good – that’s pretty exciting because I’m really enjoying lifting progressively heavier things.

How was your week?

Stats: April 4 – 10

Monday: Rest


Tuesday: Rest

Wednesday: Rest

Thursday: Personal training

Where: City studio | When: Afternoon | Felt: Queasy. Exercising after eating doesn’t work well for me

Friday: 5km run

Where: St Kilda Beach | When: Morning | Felt: Great to be out

Saturday: Rest

Sunday: Rest

Things to talk about:

  • Lots of my rest days this week were actually, “slept in too late to get a run in” days. Despite travelling again this week, I am determined to do better.
  • I’ve become very self-conscious about running in front of people. Logically, I’m sure no one cares what I look like when I run. Illogically, and the bit of my head that often wins out, I’m sure everyone is judging my form. This is not helping getting out.


How has your week been?
