And now for something a little different

After running five km twice yesterday, my feet felt very strongly that they didn’t want to walk run anywhere today.  So I decided to try out a thirty minute beginner workout courtesy of Nike.

Modified burpees and press ups, lunges of various descriptions and a little bit of jumping conspired to remind me that I have the upper body strength of something with no upper body strength at all and the flexibility of a steel rod 😦

Maybe I’ll just stick to running.

    Sounds like it will be safer for your body to stick to running!

    Ah upper body workouts – forgotten what they are recently. Have you seen your piccy on the finsbury parkrun website – you look very calm and like a proper runner!

  4. Whoo hoo burpees, lunges and pressups – a little less fun the next day!

  5. Ah yes, burpees – once the school champion – could manage the first two lines of the national anthem in a single breath.
