First workout in Nice

First a 7.5km run, then circuits to finish off

Workout done

We had barbecued fish for dinner!

Then watched the beautiful sunset

Hi lovelies! On Sunday it was time to get some movement into my holiday so Ellie and I went for a run. She thought it would be great to run all the way into the town centre bit of the promenade and I thought let’s give it a try. I knew it would be tough because I’m not a runner. Ellie on the other hand loves to run. She runs fast too!

It surprisingly went a lot better than I thought it would and when my phone showed we’d just run 7.5 km I was extremely happy. I almost wanted to stop towards the end, my legs felt like jelly but I did it. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be able to run a distance like that.

It also shows how great the training is Stella puts us through at G5 and how much my strength training is helping to improve other aspects of my fitness as well considering I don’t run long distances. It’s amazing!

After our run I thought it was only fair for me to put Ellie through a circuit workout, the kind of training I like to do. I love strength training, I don’t think anyone has missed that hehe. I also helped her with her push up and burpee technique, which was fun. I’ve only just managed to start being able to bang out some proper push ups. It takes a lot of time and patience to build up the strength and technique to do them but if you are consistent with your training you’ll get there.

After we finished our workout we headed to our local bakery to pick up some baguette and went up to the flat to have breakfast. Breakfast always tastes so amazing after you’ve trained. We then managed to even get Anki down to the beach for the afternoon despite her injury. It was lovely to have the entire family together as Anki and Sarah were leaving the next day.

For dinner we had a fish called daurade in French. It’s a really lovely fish and my dad barbecued it for us. I then chopped up loads of veg to roast in the oven and cooked quinoa to have with it for those who wanted some. Ellie also made a tomato, basil and mozzarella salad. Sarah who’s not a fan of fish got chicken with chips.

A lovely Sunday with my beloved family xxx
