I am pleased I did my strength training this week. I don’t know why I hate it so much, it’s a constant battle. Also I did more cycling than I have done recently which is great. I tell people I cycle to work every day, and I’d rather not be a liar.

I ate healthily all week, with no alcohol only a couple of classes of wine, controlled carbs, and lots of vegetables. This is great, as there have been a lot of mid-week funs recently, which leaves no respite between weekends.

Thursday was my first day back to running after giving my calf a week off. For once I am engaging patience to make sure I don’t immediately injure myself again. Next week should see the running miles increase, but it will be a couple of weeks before I am back to where I want to be.
