Train to Inspire: June Recap

So it's definitely summer...for the time being anyway! I guess this is what everyone has been working towards, huh?!Thankfully, my goals go beyond summer...which is a good job after the June that I had. Personal reasons made it difficult for me to remain active and I had what would be the most inactive month since I ever began records.  therefore, I'm keeping this brief, but positive with a short write up on what I did do along with my plans for July :)


Goal 1: Completed March 2013

Goal 2:
I attended one Yiin Yoga class which focused on the hips; lots of long deep stretching.

Goal 3:
Lots of cycling during June really did do wonders for my core :) I also taught 3 beginner pole sessions which ensured I worked on upper body and core strength demonstrating the moves over, and over, and over again!

Goal 4:
I clocked up just under 14km this month

Goal 5: 
- I compiled and shared my first workout for y'all (Quick & SimpElle Workout #1)
- I moved back to London #HelloLondon
- No new activities this month :(
- The New YMCAfit campaign launched! You can see my pictures here and there and I'll be bringing you the full write up soon :)

Finally here are my goals for July:

1. Meet my NikeFuel goal 4 out of each 7 days
2. Complete the July abs challenge 
3. Practice splits once per week (minimum)
4. Progress to 4 unassisted pull ups
5. Run once per week after the British 10km on July 14th
6. Try 2 new classes

How are your goals going?! Have you had any set backs? and how have you dealt with them?! Leave a comment below and let me know how things are going!

Elle ;) x


  1. My goals are still a work in progress, but they are coming along.
    As for setbacks, well they happen, sometimes you just can't do anything about them, but you can still learn a lot from them, if anything your own personal integrity in how you dealt with the situation. I mean I know old me would have just fallen off the wagon and never bothered to get back up and keep going forward.
    Setbacks just make you stronger.

    1. Lovely words :) thank you Matilda! And glad to hear you are making progress...that's what it's all about! Look forward to your next update :)

  2. i'm hoping to start the 30 ab challenge in august!

    so far my goals are coming along nicely; I can comfortably run 5k and I've completed a 10k (which was not part of the goal, but a very happy achievement!). I still need to try out bikram yoga and work cleaner eating habits x


    1. BOOM! Awesome job! :) and still lots of time to get some Bikram and clean eating in! And oooo the abs challenge is defo a challenge :) looking forward to seeing the results! See you soon x
