Last week I wrote about how I hadn’t really got the results that I had wanted from Weeks 1-4 and I wanted to improve upon that. So, I did step it up and I ate really well – almost obsessively. I tend to do that (get obsessive) when I lock myself away at home with work and determination. My boyfriend Rob was away on a business trip so I just got my girl on and made all the smoothies and juices that I wanted, drank lemon and honey water and did all those other ‘health’ things that make him roll his eyes and tell me that red meat and green vegetables will get me through anything. (He has a point, but doesn’t that get boring?!)

Here is how my week 6’s workouts went:
Today’s week was a bit messy actually. Although I almost always rest on Mondays after a long run on a Sunday, taking three more full rest days in the middle of the week definitely wasn’t part of the plan, but I came over a bit light headed on Wednesday night during my workout and decided to stop after 2 circuits and rest for a day. I once read a post that Kayla put up somewhere about listening to your body – especially at that time of the month, and that’s what I did. Then my Mum came to visit for the weekend and I needed to get in a long run on the Sunday, so I didn’t have time to do Workout 3 until the following Monday. Still ticked all of the boxes, so have to be happy with that! On to next week.
