Train to Inspire: July Recap

Being back in London has been great…but it has been a very busy time! Juggling work, play and exercise when you need a new routine is a learning curve of its own. But it can be done, it just takes time…

My July sure beats the heck out of June though…

June – worst month EVER!!

July – marked improvement! and WILL be 19 goals hit:)

Goal 1:
 Completed March 2013

Goal 2:
I attended NTC yoga early on in the month. I also rented out a stretch DVD which I noted down the exercises for and will use; it’s 60 minutes long though so not something I could do everyday! Will be sharing that with you soon 🙂

Goal 3:
Two NTC classes and a NCG Street Pole class made sure that my core and upper body got worked out! The GYMBOX challenge was also a fab workout… The tabata sit ups were…erm, core worthy! 

NCG Street Pole

Goal 4:

I ran the British 10km this month in a very unglamorous time. I’m all kitted out with fresh gear and ready to hit the streets again though. Just because I have achieved a goal doesn’t mean I can’t strive to improve on that…I’m hoping the new Challenges part of the Nike Running app will help motivate me to run more too…

Nike+ challenges are running…literally 🙂

Goal 5: 
– It was the keep it simpElle one year blogiversary! 

– We became a dot com! www.keepitsimpelle.com

– I created a 12 minute simpElle workout for y’all

– I’m back teaching NTC! So far I’ve been at Victoria Park and Regents Park! You can check out my schedule on the Get In Touch page 🙂

Back to NTC…back to school sports day 😉

3. Practice splits once per week (minimum)

4. Progress to 4 unassisted pull ups

5. Run twice per week

6. Try 2 new classes
