Elle About Town, August 2014

Time seems to be going faster than I can keep up with! This month has mostly been about Whole30 and training alongside it for the London Duathlon! All the big events got written up in there own post but here’s a little bit extra on what I’ve been up to over the last month and anything interesting that may be coming up…

Classes: Wednesday Evening Run Club with lululemon Covent Garden  

On July 9th, Jen (of Eclectic Cake blog) and I, headed up the first weeknight run club for the new Covent Garden Store. Since then, Wednesdays have been made awesome because of the people we have been running with! Chats, drills and plenty of good weather!

We’re going strong and would love for you to join us if you live in or are visiting London! Put it on your to do list! Here is the {LINK} for the next run club on Facebook! It’s at no cost whatsoever and we are a lovely bunch!

Classes: Crossfit Level 2

Well, what can I say. It’s a workout, a tough one at that! I’ve been hitting up the sessions every week and been maxing out on effort. Each session lasts an hour going over skills, strength work and ending with a WOD (workout of the day). Usually a killer WOD.

For Time: 
300 skips
25 knee to elbow
25 push ups
25 L pull ups
150 double unders.

I did have to scale down to knee to chest for the second drill and used a band for the pull ups but I finished in 19:18! I’d only tried double unders once before so I was thrilled to be able to do 150! …it hurt though…the amount of times I slapped myself with the skipping rope!

Crossfit will definitely be my goto workout when the weather gets colder and I’m not cycling as much. I also plan on trying out the adult gymnastics class to help me over the fear and get me into an unsupported handstand!

Classes: Nike Training Club at Nike, Gymbox 

New class alert! I start teaching at Gymbox Bank on Tuesday 26th August. A 45 minute lunchtime Nike Training Club session to keep your day going strong! I’m also at Gymbox Holborn on Fridays at 6pm.

I’m also covering some NTC Run to Train sessions in Covent Garden over the next couple of weeks.

My full schedule can be found on the ‘Train with Elle’ page here on keep it simpElle.

Coming Up….

Brixton 10km… 
A local race for me next Sunday. The plan is to cycle there and cycle home using it as a BRICK session. The London Duathlon is just 4 weeks away now.

Triyoga on the roof
Rooftop yoga in Central London. The views will be stunning. Hopefully the weather will match.

Clapham Common 10km
Another local 10km to be used as a BRICK session. By then I will have just 2 weeks left before the London Duathlon.

Got anything interesting coming up in the next month you would like to share?!

      It randomly is Tuesday mornings at 10am, I believe once per month during summer. The last one may be in September! Check out the triyoga website for more information πŸ™‚ x

Too busy to exercise? Not with a 10 minute workout!

We are all guilty of feeling like we have no time to exercise and that if we can’t work out...
