Body pump and muddy trails

Body pump and muddy trails

Hi everyone,

It is now a month until my trail marathon ( eek)... So I decided to do a bodypump class to work on my core! Oh my life it was hilarious as I didnt have a clue. I was all over the place and this 'helpful' man behind me kept telling me what I was doing wrong. Anyone else done it and enjoy it????

All in all it was OK and I can see it will benefit so I will aim to do one every week or 2. The 'helpful' man also grabbed the the next morning before Spinning to show me how to do a proper squat which was so lovely!

So my plan for the weekend was to do 8 miles Saturday and 12 or so Sunday in the woods. Oh my life it was so wet, muddy, slippy, hilly and cold! However I did it and feel all the better but tired today. So my longest run will be this Friday at my mums in Hayle. I will be aiming for 20 on the coastal footpath/ beach. It wont be as hilly but the terrain will be tricky.

Pic is me yesturday on the 12 miles a bit bedraggled and my elevation :)

Happy panthering,

  • Well done ju-ju, some serious mileages and elevations going on there! Lots of luck with your 20 miler this weekend too! My goal after the Bath Half this weekend, is to focus more on my trails and hills. There is a fab (and very small) hilly trail half marathon on my doorstep in May, but don't think I could manage the hills and distance combined just yet!๐Ÿ˜ฎ Would definately like to think of it as a goal for next year though. Keep on doing what you do - it is so inspiring so read about, especially for 'aspiring' panthers like me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I hope it went OK? I heard they ran out of medals which is terrible!!! I managed 30 miles over 3 days on the coast which was amazing!! I will post about it shortly.

  • God that sounds bleeping hardcore ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

    Don't be too tired for the big day !

    I wonder if squat guy runs marathons. Bring it up in convo ๐Ÿ˜€

  • I doubt it, he turned his nose up at running!!!

  • Glad to hear you made a mate at bodypump!!

    That's a very impressive graph.

    ps: well done on the 10k programme, that's an impressive list of people.

  • Thankyou :)

  • Nice elevation! Never heard of Body Pump before, but I rather like the sound of it! All the best for your 20 mile fun run :)

  • Its like weightlifting and aerobics all blended into one!!

  • Love the picture ju-ju- ! Sounds like you're lucky (not) with the weather for your training runs, but hopefully that'll mean you're 110% prepared for whatever race day throws at you.

    Good luck on Friday, hope it turns out to be beautiful, dry and lovely!

  • Thankyou, it was fab I will write about it shortly!!
