Having lost 14 stone, Abi doesn’t take wearing shorts for granted. Oh and she’s hurt her toe 🙁 Only nine weeks to go!
Name: Abi Wright
Goal: To finish in one piece!
Marathon history: First marathon
What I’ve learned this week: Getting on the wrong side of nail scissors can cause problems!
While wearing shorts is the norm for many it’s very new to me. When I was 25 stone I never dreamed that one day I’d be able to go out with bare legs and not even think about it
A very fresh and windy 5 miles, followed by a physio session, where I wore shorts. Nothing strange about that you may think but while wearing shorts is the norm for many it’s very new to me. When I was 25 stone I never dreamed that one day I’d be able to go out with bare legs and not even think about it.
This was my cross-training day, love these days so I can mix up the training and kick ass with my weights. I went for some kettle bell action with some sprint interval blocks, having my mini gym at home gives me flexibility as its open 24/7. Most nights before bed I always pick up my 7’s and do a few cheeky reps. Some say addicted I say dedicated!
What raining again, really? I had this idea of running in my shorts in the rain and that I did. Hit a nice three mile steady pace run. I’ve noticed my breathing is really improving, I’m now able to manage mega deep breaths!
Arrived at my friends parked the car and ran to the gym a nice four miles in the bag (toe was bloody painful). Straight into the gym to meet my friend we trained together, even got the boxing gloves out. Variety truly is the key, my body was in shock for sure.
Toe had taken a turn for the worst, it was all wrapped up for a spot of lunch looking snug, but I had to wear my flip flops as it was too painful to put shoes on. I could see so many people saying she must be mad, yes I was but the cold numbed my feet so it was win win.
