i can’t wait for it. i am doing it with my boyfriends sister which will be a laugh. the girl is mental haha. i am going to be supporting Temple Street Children’s Hospital (for those who don’t know, it’s the main children’s hospital in Dublin).
i feel that i have trained so well and so hard since my last marathon and i feel i can complete this not a bother on me. obviously there will be some hard times but i think i wont find it as hard as my first time. i am dying to do it. i am also doing it the day my mum comes home from spain which makes things more exciting because when i see her, she will see me with another medal. plus it will e nice to spend a bit of time with my boyfriends sisters as i rarely see them without my boyfriend around so it will give us a chance to chat away and whatnot.
i trained like a mother-bitch today. the man beside me was a big fuck off muscly type and then there was me, a little midget, jogging beside him haha. i really enjoyed running today. i pushed myself to the max in TRX tonight and my arms and legs are shaking (i love it).
on a lighter note about me being on my own, so far, i am handling it well. i am giving myself things to do each day so i am not just sat around doing nothing. i am planning on spending time with aunties and grandparents for the next few days cause i am a shit niece/grand-daughter and i hardly ever see them haha.
happy wednesday :) i hope everyone is having a lovely day/night :) xox
since today is training day and the taught of coming home from training later to an empty house frightens me, i have asked my boyfriend to house sit for an hour later on and also it means when i come home, i’ll get a great big kiss of him :)
today i am not feeling as upset as i was yesterday. i had a good cry on the phone last night and i seemed to get everything off my chest and i am now over looking everything else as a positive new experience. it was supposed to be like that in the first place but anxiety and fear came over me. i have planned my week in advance just to help me get by and past the time and then next week i’ll do something different.
i am waiting on a call about an Internship today so i guess that’s something positive to look forward too :)
all because of my kidney infection :(
i felt it coming on during the day but i ignored it. i carried on with my 20min jog on the treadmill before class and afterwards i was almost in tears with pain and half way through TRX Class, my trainer said i wasn’t to train with a kidney infection and i was told to rest. right now, i feel crappy for missing half of classes but i guess my health comes first before my fitness.
so it’s drinking cranberry juice for the night now.
i don’t mind newbies but when it’s newbies and i know and dispise then that’s when i get physical in class and show those fuckers that their assholeness isn’t going to make me do shit in class.
this certain newbie is a neighbour and along with the rest of my neighbours, is so stuck up her own arse it’s a wonder she is married. everyone one of my neighbours ignore me every time they see me pretty much, except 1 or 2 but other than that they should all just…go away and their little demons.
but overall, class was great. my trainer mainly focus on our abs. done loads of burpee’s, planks, sit ups, you name it. i loved it :) jogging on the treadmill before hand was also lovely. i needed time to myself. to sweat out all the emotions. boyfriend problems mainly. but other than that, day went lovely.
happy monday (again haha). hope everyone is keeping well :)
by the way, where are all my followers at? for the past day or two, some of you guys have been hiding. where ya’ll????
and the last 10 minutes of it a jogged and i was so worn out afterwards! i didn’t jog too fast, just at a normal and slow pace and i walked fast, like i normally do and when i was finish, you’d swore i ran a 10km marathon. i don’t know why i found it so tough. of all times that i have jogged, today was the most difficult!
don’t get me started on my class. i done brilliantly for the first 30 minutes and it’s like all my energy just decided that it didn’t want me doing anything. i literally lay on the mat that we use for planks and i could of easily went to sleep. my trainer loves me too much to be annoyed so he let me be a little lazy in class today. today had to be the most unmotivating class ever haha, mind you, i still enjoyed it and pushed myself in the suicides so i guess i done well haha.
i am not even going to kick myself over it. i am not going to cry over it. i work so hard as it is. i have worked my ass off to be where i am now so for me to get upset over this little lazy workout is stupid. i am proud that i just finished the class :)
my mum got me a mars bar ice cream as a treat and boy am i going to enjoy it!!
i walked, fast, for 15 minutes as i wasn’t too sure that if i started running earlier i would pass out halfway during class, so i jogged the last 5 minutes and in fairness, i completed the last 5 minutes. since it was one of those crappy treadmills, the distant thingy wasn’t clear so i hadn’t a clear how much i done. it said i lost 85 calories, woohoo haha and then i completed an hour of bootcamp with no complaints. life is great :)
my trainer has now decided to start up a running club which i am definitely going to join! so my sunday lie in’s are just going to have to stop which i seriously don’t mind. i would rather wake up early and work out then have a lie in and feel crappy all day. some sundays i tend to work out but i try to use sunday’s as my rest days but now, sunday’s will be my running days :)
hope everyone is having a lovely monday :) xox
i have not been ignoring you guys, my laptop has just been an ejit and has seems to think it has a mind if it’s own.
anyways, bootcamp on saturday was amazing! hence the pictures haha. since my cousin is looking at me as i type, i have to restrain from typing anything “vulgar” or “rude” so this is going to be the hardest post ever!! haha. i have to say, doing bootcamp in the rain, the muck, the dampness, is brilliant, the aftermath of it, is not! getting muck all over your couch because you literally had to throw yourself on it is not a good idea. my mam on the other hand, looked like she just laid down on the grass and rolled over it! i was in so much pain the next day. you don’t realise how much you have pushed yourself until the pain the next day. i taught i was going lightly on the running and jumping over the bars but clearly i wasn’t haha and i think by putting muck on my face made things seem more fun. i would love to do bootcamp like that every saturday.
turned out my trainer was trying to promote his classes by doing outdoor bootcamp and including LOADS of people. looks like people were interested because there was loads joining in on the running, TRX, kettle bell and barrel lifts. i think it was a fantastic idea to promote his classes. lately his classes have been downsizing so there was no better way than to show people of my area what bootcamp entitles and it also shows it can be fun if you make it fun!
my eating this weekend however was horrible. i don’t even know where to begin. it’s not that i ate take away, i didn’t. i ate so much bread, potatoes and other lovely home-made (unhealthy :S) stuff. my boyfriends mam is such a great cook, you just cannot ignore her cooking haha.my water intake was just as bad but it doesn’t mean i drank coke. i basically drank sweet feck all so today i feel so tired, unrested and groggy.
i am heading to the gym at 5.30 to get started on the running on the treadmill before classes so wish me luck haha. i am hoping i survive since i don’t feel THAT energised.
i hope everyone had a lovely weekend and i am looking forward to having a nose on some people’s blogs :) cheerio :)
we irish always see everything last but anyways…
i am literally fuming with jealousy. their progress is just so amazing, it makes me wonder if i will ever reach my goal (once i reach it, i won’t stop, i plan to be fit and healthy for life). in my heart i know i will, but my head keeps telling me that i am not as tough as the contesters on biggest loser. i know they trained for hours during the weeks on the show but still. i just wish (as much as i can’t stand her) jillian could just train me personally.
