For those of you who’ve been reading my blog for a while, you may remember me flirting, unsuccessfully, with Gym. After only a couple of months my motivation headed south – along with my goal for no wobbly underarms, filled out calves and a flatter tum!
Now I’ve turned to walking (easier on the back) and I’ve found a good 40 mins walk that takes me out of the village (they call it village but we live in small town of about 10k people) and back round by the side of the post office so I can collect the mail – perfect!
I was telling my hairdresser of my route, which does have a very tricky hill – well, very tricky for me. She said that when exerting myself I should be able to talk but not sing. So, yesterday I tried it. I was staggering up the hilly bit, legs feeling like cotton wool and gasping for breath…. yet I could sing!!!! As anyone who heard my rendition of Climb Every Mountain (what else) can testify.
I’m aiming to do this walk thing every day – apart from today as I’ve got to take daughter out.
So, what’s your exercise routine…… and why am I one of those people who find it soooo boring? Not the walking – I do love walking in the country or along the beach….. but the other Gym stuff….
