Week three has began...today wanted to run outdoors to the Castle as thought it would be warmer but it was minus one degrees so decided against running and cycled at home instead. First I did 200 sit ups, then one set ( 10-12 reps ) of burpies, lunges forward, backwards and sideways, triceps dips and push ups. Once that was done I cycled while watching morning TV channel.
Climbing up and down the stairs today I can feel that the muscles in my legs have been worked...been a long time since I did any kind of lunges ~ think October..so guess who is going to be very stiff as this week I start teaching and will be adding lots of toning to my hours class....but have to get going to get myself back to where I was before I went on holiday..fitness wise I can feel a huge improvement...now its getting the muscles back.
While in South Africa I ran out of my usual 5HTP so bought Natural High as it has 5HTP, St John's Wort and a few other things in to lift one's spirit when your feeling down in the dumps. These pills have kicked in as I am feeling so much happier compared to when I arrived back a month ago...taken me a month but now can safely say those down in the dumps feelings are gone and I am filled with the JOY of life again...even this miserable weather cant get to me..summer is around the corner and I look forward to that now.
I cant buy Naturally High in Germany as its a South African product but have ordered my usual 5HTP and this time adding St John's Wort to my list...the combination has been good for me.
I'm reading a book about running that I got before I left for my holiday from my blogger friend who lives in Munich, didn't have the time to read the book when I got it, but now am reading it daily and finding lots of info between the pages for me.
One thing I have seen with reading this book is the following
I run cause I love the feeling it gives me
I run to keep my weight down
I run cause after years and years of telling myself I hated it, I actually have found that I love it...:)
I have no desire to run a race, a marathon, run faster than someone else....
