Fit for Summer


Dear reader

First of all I want you to wish a very happy Easter. I hope you have a great day. This post will be a little different. I won’t do a ‘My Week on Instagram’ because I don’t really have pictures of my week. Instead, I’m going to start a new series : Fit for Summer or #FFS.

10c7066812a3ad759b847efc8b0d504dFirst things first : I’m so excited to tell you about this road trip I’m going to make with my cousin this summer. We are going to do the West Coast of the USA, one of my biggest dreams ever! The West Coast has a lot of canyons and national parks. That means that I will have to be very fit because we will do a lot of hikes. It will be very hot in the places where we will go so I need to be in the perfect body condition.

Yesterday, I came up with the idea to share my journey with you. Every week, I will post something different. This week I’ll start with running.

I’m going to start running again. I have times that I will run four times a week but I also have times that I won’t run for like weeks in a row. A routine is necessary to keep up with it.

  • I’ll try to run at least 3 times a week, 4 times would be even better.
  • I’ll start with running an average speed. The longer I can run, the better.
  • I’ll run outside but only where there are good running tracks and also on the treadmill.

Today I did my first run. I went to my favorite place to walk. I think it’s very important for your knees to run on a good running track. The one I did had wood chips and gravel. I did a 35 minute run which was perfect. I ended by walking to get my heart rate down. Then I did some stretching which is really important.

I hope you enjoyed my first ‘fit for summer’. Would you like to know something specific about me. Let me know!

  1. Such a fabulous series!

    I had fallen into a workout rut over the past few months and have been working to constantly change things up and keep exercise interesting– it should be fun, after all! I definitely want to start running more often and workout outdoors as much as possible.

    I can’t wait to hear more about your trip to the West Coast! You’re going to absolutely love it over here! xoxo

      I also change things up constantly to keep it fun. I love that about my work out routine, it never gets boring.

      I’m definitely going to write more about my trip to the West Coast in the future!!

      Thank you for reading my blog Emily! x
