Divine, divine, what more can I say.

I was totally spoilt today with beautiful warm weather, zero wind, great food and great company. Spring had arrived early and I was going to make full use of this glorious day. I started off by doing my usual physio exercises and then my strength program written by Sandi.
  • 3 x 10 one leg squats
  • 3 x 10 functional steps
  • 3 x 10 sec one leg bridges (I can do these now)
  • 3 x 12 one leg split squats
  • 3 x 12 lunges with 3kg dumbbells
  • 3 x 15 incline pushups
  • 3 x 15 dumbbell flys with 3kg weights
  • 3 x 15 bent over dumbbell rows 3kg weights
  • 3 x 15 shoulder press 3kg weights
  • 3 x 12 ab crunches feet raised
  • 3 x 20 supersets dumbbell twists/bicycle crunches
  • 3 x 20 ab alternate heel touches
I then got to spend a wonderful three hours with a dear friend chatting over a yummy lunch. Always good to catch up with Cath, she is always good for a laugh and a debrief. There is never a silent moment between us.

Feeling like I still had energy to burn this evening, I jumped on the trainer and did a quick 16km and am now ready to have a shower and hit the sack. I hope you have all had a wonderful day too but I'm ready for bed. See you all in the morning.


  1. Sounds (and looks) like a great day!

  2. That's a great strength workout. You've made me hungry with those pics! Glad you had a lovely day!

  3. I like your strength workout! I may have to use that after my Half Ironman! :)

  4. Abbi: it was a fantastic day. And today it looks to be shaping up to be the same sort of day.

    Johann:it sure is a great one. It works wonders.

    Aimee: It is a great workout. Everytime I do it I feel myself getting stronger, especially in my core.

  5. I'm honestly not sure which is better, the workout or the pizza pick. I should pick the workout though I'd rather not.

  6. Patrick: Yeah, pizza was delish. Actually so was that salad.


I am so happy you have stopped by. You have made my day.

Your hard work will be rewarded.
