I forgot to put todays workout on my earlier blog post.. We did a gymnastics workout today. I had planned to go for my tempo run but I've had an off tummy since last night. I'm blaming some M&S goats cheese en croute thingummybobs Mike and I ate last night.. They were way too rich! I didn't read the label thoroughly until I got home and then noticed they had 118% of an adults daily saturated fat in one portion!! Is that even allowed... I don't think it should be haha.. There's another reason I need to cook from scratch more often, then you know exactly what's gone into your food! Anyway my stomach has been cramping all day and I was a bit scared to run. I can still do a run tomorrow (Thurs) and one on Saturday to keep up with my programme. All is not lost!
I really feel like I'm starting to make progress on the dreaded handstand.. Why can't I do it!! Today I managed a bit better, still can't flip over properly my legs fall like dead weights before I've got them over my head. I think it's something in my head holding me back.. I'm being a bit of a wimp I think haha. The headstands seem to be helping me get used to the positioning without feeling like I'm going to fall on my head and break my neck though.. I wonder if I'm the only person who struggles so much with handstands! The handstand push-up is a million miles away!
The rest of the workout was some tuck L-sits - not good on the iffy tummy... Needed too much core control which I couldn't seem to muster... Back lever progressions which are coming on slowly but nicely and some frog stands, one of which I oh so gracefully exited by almost falling nose first on the floor... I wonder why I was never too great at ballet...
Hope everyone's had a good day, any good plans for tomorrrow? My number one is to get my tempo run done I could be starting work any day now so I'm enjoying the luxury of running when I feel like it and not when I can fit it in!
A lovely week in the north- part 1
