I’ve made a decision. I’m going to get FIT. Get healthy and in shape. I’m the girl who says this every month and nothing ever comes of it,but not this time, I feel a new determination. Added to this is my training partner, my gorgeous boyfriend. It’s a new aspect to our relationship which I’m really loving. We started our journey last Sunday with an early morning jog on the sand dunes at Inchydoney beach. There is a track beaten into the ground from the countless feet that have trundled through the ferns, up and down steep hills and around sharp bends. It’s a battle with your inner wimp as you try to anticipate the ground before your feet. I struggled, huffed, puffed and hauled my ass around after himself as all images of tanned, scantily clad couples working out in matching gym gear were thrust from my mind!
His presence spurred me on, I wanted to keep up and he did a great job encouraging me. The sea breeze was cooling on my flushed face and the waves a beautiful backdrop as we caught our breath and guzzled down water after our run.
After a healthy lunch at the Fig and Olive in the beautiful West Cork town of Clonakilty, we set off on a geocaching adventure (check out previous geocaching blog for app details). This took us on a long hike in the woods to a beautiful ruined church.
We have home workouts planned for this week and a gym session at the weekend and for once I can’t wait to work out! Check back here for updates and follow me on Instagram @jen_at_yummy_mummy_lane
