What I've learned this week and the plan going forward......
So this week has been a real learning curve for me.
On tuesday, my car wouldn't start, it was dead.... I had to therefore walk as fast as I could into work (it's two miles from my house), it wasn't too bad it only took 40 mins.
I only got the car fixed on Friday night so I had the joy of the walking commute to work every morning.
Now this used to be something that I honestly dreaded, I had gotten used to the easy nature of jumping in the car and being at work within 10 mins. But this was something that I honestly thought was gone.
You see my car is 15 years old, I know that I need to replace it before Feb so it's failure wasn't a total shock. Lucky for me it turned out to be a flat battery, I've been underusing the car at the weekend and doing really short journeys.
I managed to find a lovely walk to work along the canal and through the fields. I found myself enjoying the views and the feeling of working my body.
I also have lost 4 lbs in the last week. Coincidence? I think not, a cheeky little four mile walk to and from work is just the kick start into training that I need for my 10K in March.
I have therefore decided that Tuesday to Thursday that I will walk to work without fail (Monday is out due to needing to get to and from Uni and Friday is a little reward for me ;) )
This is also going to be teamed with running and Strength exercises through out the week.
I will be posting my progress on the blog along with the final training programme ( I know that some of you followed my previous one)
It just goes to show, you don't need to be reliant on certain things. There is always a way around it.
Thanks for now!
