Cleared Polar data? Yes
Updated Polar weight? Yes

Virgin Active gym visits: Only 1 (need 3 before end of May otherwise membership will be terminated!!!!! NB NB NB!!!!!!MUST GO THIS WEEK!!!!!!)

Run 5 K progress: 3 x 5 K runs – fitness definitely improving – feeling great if a bit sore
(right quad and hips very achy)
Extended Saturday’s run to 7K

Other exercise: 1 hike on Sunday (Faerie Glen Nature Reserve – fantastic walk with tough bits, did the extended Kiepersol trail – a great workout)
1 short high speed Dassie trail though the botanical Gardens on Wednesday chasing two 5 year olds.

Past week’s nutrition:
Nutrition: very good, really enjoyed my meals and managed to keep my “hot bevs” to a maximum of 4 a day - so proud of myself. Yay!

This week’s menu plan:
Will keep meal plan more or less the same for this week:
Today- Sunday: big salad for me, risotto for family, supper?
Monday: run day – fish and steamed veg
Tuesday: veg/bean soup with polenta on the side
Wednesday: run day - pasta “veganaise” for supper
Thursday: Veg curry on brown rice
Friday: long run day - ??? veg enchiladas?
Saturday: stir fry with tuna steak

This week’s challenge:
• Keep hot bevs at 4 max a day
• Go to gym 3 times!!!! (Even if it’s just to use the loo. I don’t want to lose my membership!)
• Incorporate ST – try for at least 3 days!
• Lose 800g minimum!!! Come on I can do it!

One more week left and then I’ll be upping the tempo!

    I have lost my gym membership before and had to go through the whole schlep I am on a roll.
    We have great new stretch (20min) classes at my Virgin Active. That would be good for you and clock up those minutes in no time.
    Or you could always meet a friend at the coffee shop?
    Ps, one of my fav things is to go to the botanical gardens with my kids and with my sisters, we run ahead and armed with water pistols we set up 'ambushes' on the trail for the rest of our family to walk into. Really funny.

    Way to go on using the Virgin loos!
    I do that sometimes at Planet - to clock up the points and get to 15000 as fast as possible :D

    Doing well, Sam!

    You are sooooo organized! Good for you! Without a plan most of us just flounder around and "hope" for good results. Keep up the good work emoticon emoticon
