Here’s what I did:
Walk 51 miles (20 out of 30 days)
Run 40 miles (9 times)
Swim 29km / 18 miles (10 times)
Cycle 4.2 miles (once)
Strength 1 hr 21 (2 times)
I also had 10 out of 30 days as rest (walk) days.
I sort of go with it (but do the odd run or swim)… and what happens is I tend to always meet my apple activity goals (mainly through walking) when we’re on leave. She always meets hers. (See above, closed rings from 14-28 Sept – when we were on leave together). It’s good to have someone else to motivate you into healthy activity habits.
We had really good sleeps (and naps!) on leave… averaging about 10 hours sleep a night on leave. And as a result I felt nice and refreshed. Overall my sleep has been good (since my work has been good!). Long may it continue.
My weight is continuing to drop a little after I started 16:8 fasting in mid July. It’s plateaued a bit in the last week or two… but I have less routine with it. That’s probably the weight I should be now, having lost half a stone since mid July.
Then the last week of September that was us back to normality. Back to work, nice and refreshed. I’ve got an idea of how I’ll change my training in autumn winter to include more strength training – doing a wee bit less running, but keeping the swimming up.
Other things that happened in September was I got my Glasgow Triathlon Club coaching tshirt. I’m coaching development swimmers on a Monday morning at Bishopbriggs, and trying out coaching kids on a Thursday at the Gorbals (but might not keep it up as I’m working enough I think!).
And this baby bath Turtle thermometer…to check the temperature of the water I swim in… in lochs. It was 16.4’C when swimming in Lochan Spling at the end of September. So not too bad.
And I also got welcomed into the bots!
Oh and here’s another rainbow Paul Clawson (Bella Harrier) sent me. He’s pacing a couple of runners for the virtual marathon – fellow Harrier Tania is one of them, who’s aiming for under 4 hours and she’s a very experienced runner so I think she’ll smash it.
I’m pleased to say with the change in work, I’m finally in a great place with everything and feeling very happy (even though the dark days of winter are coming!)
