Six week Shake it up week 3

Six week Shake it up week 3

The 6 weeks shake it up challenge

The challenge is whatever you want it to be.

Add in something extra.

Keep up your new addition for 6 weeks.

Mine is I am learning to hoop, so for the next six weeks I will be doing at least three session a week. Also I want to build to assisted push ups. Three sessions a week. So I am doing a twofold challenge.

The list of ideas is unlimited but here a few suggestions

Squats

Pull ups

Push ups

Downward dog

Glute stretches

Swimming

Cycling

Walking

Sit ups

Tennis

Etc. Etc. Etc.

Pick something you have always wanted to do and challenge yourself to try it for 6 weeks

Stay safe, don’t pick something too difficult, do your research make sure you know what you are doing and how to perform all moves safely

I am looking forward to seeing what everyone want to do.

Well it is the start of the half way point. How am I doing, mmmmmmm. I managed a swim this week but only did two hooping sessions. I am breaking in some new orthotics and have been having some pain and I have had to take a little break to see if it is the running in orthotics or hooping that is causing the discomfort. So I am playing it safe and looking after myself, I juts have to make sure I add something else in to keep my fitness up.

How is everyone else doing?

Hurrah, I have managed to do my first swim of the week today! 25 minutes of splashing about.

I desperately need a *swimming* costume as opposed to a *bathing* costume...

Well done On getting to the pool. I’m hoping to go tomorrow. I must admit I always use swimming costumes rather than fashion ones as I find the fashion ones rub a bit more.

yeah, I want a swimming one - but I'm too short for an adult one-piece and I am not child-shaped any more so that wouldn't work. So hunting down a reasonably sporty tankini as opposed to one made for posing by a poolside with a cocktail!

Speedo do some nice ones, I find if you go for last years models you can find them cheaper at sport direct or amazon as well. I also am a big fan of Zoggs but there tankinis don’t seem as well designed as speedo for long swims.

oh my goodness I did not know Speedo did these! I wrongly assumed I would find everything in existence on eBay (like my sports bras). Even with a Google i didn't notice these. I was specifically looking for shorts as well! These are perfect 🏊👙 thank you!
