Post run

Hello sweeties, hope you are having a great Sunday and have had a marvellous week! I’ve had quite an active week despite the week starting off slowly which I’ll come on to later. I think the decent weather makes a huge difference!

Move

Yoga

  • Monday – 10 minutes yoga, 20 minutes walk
  • Tuesday – Rest
  • Wednesday – Metafit
  • Thursday – 10 minutes yoga, 20 minutes walk
  • Friday – Metafit, 40 minute walk
  • Saturday – 20 minute run, 1 hour walk
  • Sunday – REST

+ push up challenge, some of which I did as part of the Metafit classes

Yes, today is rest in capitals because I need it! I had intended to run on Monday morning but we had a shocking night with Finley (teething) so I decided to take it easy. Again on Thursday I had intended to run but I was aching head to toe from Metafit. When yesterday morning came round I had to push myself to get out, but I enjoyed a good 20 minute run so now I feel like I’m getting somewhere. However the exciting thing this week has been starting a regular Metafit class which you can take your babies too! In case you’ve never heard of Metafit, they are short high intensity interval workouts using body weight. They really do work you your max! It’s useful when you have a baby as you can just park them up in their pushchairs at the side of the large hall so they can watch you jump about and sweat like a crazy person! This is a game changer for me, because I can now fit in some decent workouts while I have Finley with me so I’m very happy about that! I also go with another mama friend so we can keep each other accountable and encourage each other to go.

Wear

Wear

Some new loves this week, firstly I am all about the open shoulders and I saw this lovely dress from New Look which I picked up yesterday. I also discovered Salt-Water Sandals and this gold pair are very much on my wish list!

Mountain buggy nano

We got Finley’s new Mountain Buggy Nano all set up, I never thought I’d be getting excited over strollers but I am! It’s going to be wonderful for when we go on holiday to Brighton and will generally be much easier for me to manage on my own for day to day use although I still love using our Ergo carrier as well. I got the lime green buggy liner from eBay so that was a great bargain. Also…

Nakd bakewell tart bars and salted caramel nibbles, so delicious! // sunny walks along the river with my friend Carolyn and her little one // Angel cake and mint and rose tea // the great response to launching my Fabulous YOU course! // the new Star Wars trailer // Finley gaining 9oz whoop!

    Metafit sounds great – I’m looking for new workouts to try once I ease back on running a bit after the marathon! Your oats with the Graze jaffa cake mix look amazing! x

    Those nakd bars are the best! Love anything with marzipan flavour :)
    Glad you are still enjoying the running too- you have months before the GNR so at the moment you don’t need to worry about missing runs – just getting used to it again is all you need to do.

    I haven’t tried Metafit before and they don’t do it at my local gym so I will just stick to spinning classes for now. I managed to do two spinning classes this week plus 3 hour outdoor cycling so I had some really good workouts this week, that’s for sure.
    Nakd bars are my favourite as well! I love their Cocoa delight flavour!

      I used to love spinning, I wish I had time to still fit it in!

    Feta and roasted butternut squash are two of my total dream combinations – just so good! Also, I am incredibly envious of the Nakd salted caramel nibbles, I’ve heard they’ve bought out lots of new flavours and the salted caramel flavour sounds totally up my street, yum.
    Metafit sounds intense but an incredible workout! Great to hear Finley can come along too with you – he looks totally adorable in his new stroller too *inserts-heart-eyed-emoji*.

    I’m pretty much banned from sunshine right now – 3 weeks and counting until University is over meaning my life is assignments and dissertation central right now. Instead I’ve been cooped up in my favourite cafe that does almond milk cappuccinos/lattes/etc – basically they’re keeping me going and keeping me sane(ish) right now! Definitely need to get back on the yoga mat this week to relieve some stress…

    Have a fab week Laura!

    Finley is the cutest and well done on your 20 min run! I never heard of Metafit before but I find it’s brilliant that they let you bring your baby along! x

    Um Nakd salted caramel nibbles!? This alone makes me want to come home!! That bowl of porridge looks so divine and perfect for the torrential rain we have here!

      Oh no torrential rain! That must be even worse in Australia when you are more used to good weather!

    I have 2 pairs of saltwater sandals now, red and yellow, and I love them! They are so comfy. I took them on my honeymoon and we walked miles around New York and my feet didn’t hurt. Love the gold too!

      I am glad to hear they are so comfy, that is exactly what I’m looking for! I definitely think I’ll buy them now :-)
