Day 19 A Gorgeous Sunny Day

Today was a bit of a topsy turvy day - didn't wake up quite as early as I had hoped.  Normally I do all my physio exercises, stretches and fitness challenges before I leave the house - this morning I had to walk the dog before we headed out on the bikes so all I had time for was the calf stretches and a quick roll with the tiger tail.

We had a lovely walk this morning, it was such a lovely morning.   We went down to the marina and back again which was about 1.5 miles.

This is what it looks like in the daylight!

the sea was pretty choppy outside the harbour wall!
We don't normally get this far on dark mornings!

When we got back Shaun had loaded my bike into the car - I drove to Brighton Marina again and he cycled!  We had a lovely ride from Brighton Marina to Shoreham Harbour again - apart from the stupid people walking in the cycle lane and the very slow pigeon who nearly had my tyre marks across his back!

11.65 miles - bit quicker today we were only out 1 hour 15 mins.  Apparently my top speed was just under 40kph.

When we got back we quickly showered and then rushed out again to buy a hoover - exciting stuff hey!  Shaun blew the old one up during the week and I was desperate to get the carpet done.

Whilst Shaun was out with the dog I did my physio exercises and 30 day fitness challenges and some more stretches.

Plank - 65 seconds - yes that's a whole 5 secs longer than the whole week!

Tricep dips - 65

Squats - 120 (that nearly killed me!)

Super easy push ups - 30

What a bloody brilliant day - I love weekends!
