Because I have been strength training at home a couple of times a week, and going to group exercises classes at the gym 3 times a week, and getting out for lots of walks in between, running has taken a back seat. Well, honestly, running has barely been in the car at all!
So last night when we went to bed I told The Captain that I was going for a 5km run this morning and he said he would like to go along. This morning we both had a bit of coffee before drinking our pre-run smoothies and off we went. It was a bit breezy along the waterfront so I was glad I had worn my Tommie Copper beanie to keep my ears warm. It was quite sunny though and I warmed up quickly.
It was slow, I have to admit, and The Captain did walk a couple of times on uphill stretches so that he wasn’t running away from me! But It was great to be out and afterward, I enjoyed a long and leisurely stretch on the balcony in the sunshine.

stretch 5 minutes
March in Numbers:
- 3 number of runs
- 4 number each of Body Pump, Flow Yoga, and Body Flow classes
- 9 number of strength training sessions with The Captain
- 12 number of treadmill runs that I did before group exercise classes ranging in time from 10 to 25 minutes, no keeping track of distance
- 15 number of kilometres run
I am so looking forward to April… one more Body Pump class and one more Flow Yoga class before my gym membership expires and then the routine changes again.
I am gathering information about stretching hips and hip flexors, starting a home yoga practice, and looking for some beginners’ yoga workouts that I can share with The Captain. I will be changing our workout schedule and the exercises in it as well.
It is gonna be a fun month!
Any special plans for April?
