Another day, another lyric but a perfect example of how I've been feeling with a lack of sleep! Luckily for me I saw sense last night, went to bed at 8.30pm and slept straight through until 5am this morning when it was time to get up and train a client then train myself. It feels like the whole world has opened up for me again training wise now that I'm not competing and I'm headed down the road of wanting to be a strong fit all rounder - little bit of this and a little bit of that. This morning's workout was all about assessment of where I am right now - despite no lower body work for the last six weeks or so given the high volume of classes I teach, my squats and deadlifs were pretty tidy this morning. As I don't want killer DOMS I kept the weights fairly moderate and focused on technique and cardio wise I did an aerobic base style treadmill run and tried out the new cardio equipment which was fun - we got a piece of equipment that mimics skating - not sure how I feel about that one!
Had a terrific Mother's Day yesterday - it seems as the girls are getting older, it's becoming even more fun - they had made me all manner of things, a home made card , some apricot slice (which had melted and was congealed into a very strange shape indeed which was hilarious) - the funniest part was that Miss S had sent hubby off with a shopping list which he later gave me which said - "one set of tulips, no card (already sorted)" - that, I am keeping to give to her when she is 21! I got the tulips too :)
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at the show on Sunday, I'm still very glad I made the decision that I did and want to say publicly how much I appreciated everyone's comments on my last post. As I mentioned originally I am still having my photos done with Miss Selina - am looking forward to going to Lorna Jane and picking out my outfits with the help of my fellow Bodystep instructor Miss W who also works at Lorna and has a great knack of putting together great outfits.
