Keep Watching

Last Sunday I went for a 16k run. It was long over due and so I needed to go, rain or shine. The plan was that I'd run up to the Pipe Line and meet Mrs G where we would run the Pipe Line together and then home. It was a slow run although I ran most of the Pipe Line on my own. Mrs G wanted me to run at my own pace given that I have a half marathon in a few weeks.

We did ok but Mrs G hurt her knee and so will be out of running for a bit. I believe she will continue with Zumba if anyone wants to join her. I'm holding off on that too until I am back on track in a month or so.

All going well, very soon I will add some photos and news but until then, keep checking in on my Blog as I like to keep in touch with you all. Just over 3 weeks until the half marathon...It won't be a fast one but it will hold such sentimental value and that is awesome. As I type I am filled with a rush of excitement! I CAN'T WAIT!

Just a wee one

On Monday I went for a very gentle run with Mrs G from Kelston Boys High School down Archibald Rd, Up Gt Nth Rd to Hepburn Rd, along to Butterworth and back to St Leonard's to the end and left back to the school. It was only 4.6k but all we could manage in the time schedule. I'm going to have to do some serious running if I want to beat the competition...Can't disclose too much about that at the moment but very soon, you will know who I mean by the competition...

Zumba Out West

Caught off guard, Mrs G asked me to go to a Zumba class and because I didn't go for my run I felt the need to exercise. There was no excuse and so at 6:45pm she picked me up and we drove to Kelston Girls High school for some pre session moves just to get a head start on the class. The session began at 7:00pm and was FULL on but awesome. It didn't matter if I got lost because I enjoyed the music SO MUCH. I had 2 left feet and couldn't master the moves and just carried on moving as best as I could. We laughed a lot!

Next session is Wednesday and would be good to go again...will see how we go.

If anyone is interested: Ditch the work out and join the party! Come Zumba at the Kelston Girls High School Dance Hall in West Auckland - Monday and Wednesday at 7:00pm. Get there 15min early for pre session moves.
