I missed last Saturday's fitness update due to it being moving day and I was very busy. So I'm back today with a quick double week update before I'm off out tonight (it is freshers week after all!).
I had the final Runhunt session on the Tuesday where we joined with Lytham Road Runners in their weekly Tuesday run. The options were a 1200m intervals or a timed 5K run. I chose the 5k run with the intention of beating my personal best. That I did. My phone died so I could track it on Runkeeper but as it was timed, I was able to manually record it later on. I did the 5K in 31 minutes making that run my all time personal best so far!
Week 4 has been my first week in Hull and it's taken me quite a bit to actually go out for a run since I'm still not fully aware of the area. Eventually I did go out yesterday with a housemate and then Ed joined on later too and we did a starter run. It most definitely was not my best and I did struggle but I'm glad I got out because I'm more motivated to go out at other times now.
There hasn't been any gym sessions or even home workouts because it's taken me a while to settle in but this week is the start of my course and the Freshers Fairs start where apparently I can get discount on gym memberships. I also have a dance taster session for 3 hours at the end of the week and I'll be beginning my hockey training very soon.
Food wise, I feel like I've been eating very well. Fruit and yoghurt for breakfast, healthy snacks throughout the day and salads quite regularly. Not bad for a first week at uni!
Overall, I think I've done pretty well throughout the month and it's been a great starter month into full fitness. I hope to keep on improving now that I'm at uni!
