I was determined that I'd make a good start to this weekend - I had gotten a Groupon voucher for a picnic hamper from a local bakery and Paul and I decided that we would pick it up this weekend although the weather is probably going to mean we have an indoor picnic but either way I'm looking forward to it! So I knew I wanted to do something to try and counteract the hamper eating - I had a sneaky weigh yesterday morning and it's looking like I've lost a little bit so I don't want this to give me a set back.
So this morning I got in my workout gear and laced up my trainers and headed out for a 5k run - I have a nice little loop from my flat and back that works out nicely as a 5k so I put my 10k training app on my iPhone and set off. The training programme finishes a bit before the end of my 5k so I tend to run through the 5 minute cool down section and then cool down after that - it gets me home anyways.
It actually went pretty well - I should have gotten out the house a bit earlier because it was actually quite bright and sunny but then the clouds rolled in and I got hit with a couple of showers while I was out but it actually felt pretty good, it helped cool me down anyways.
When I got in (after walking up the 6 flights of stairs to my flat I might add!!) I was still feeling pretty energetic so I did some housework, I hoovered the whole flat and sorted out the rubbish (I still need to put it all down the chute though) and emptied and re-filled the dishwasher.
I then made a cup of coffee and you will now find me sitting with my laptop with an Activia Banoffee yoghurt (delicious BTW) and my coffee looking through my emails, blogs and comments.
I've also decided to join the world of twitter (finally!! I hear you say - I don't profess to be up with the trends!!) so I'm trying to get my head around all that but if you want to follow me you can find me at
I'm due to pick up our picnic hamper at half four and its a half hour walk away so I'm gonna head for a shower and get ready to go back outside and I'll let you know what was in this mystery hamper!!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far
What is your take on exercise on a weekend? Do you work out hard during the week and take the weekend off or is the weekend just like any other day and you workout as normal or do you use the days not working to squeeze in your extra long runs / sessions?
What's your favourite flavour of yoghurt?
