Parts of the UK have had the driest and warmest spring for more than a century, latest figures from the Met Office confirm. (Source.)

Wednesday.

Yesterday was certainly a nice omen for the month of June in  my opinion, bringing the promise of sunshine with it. I am definitely a summer-loving kinda gal.

Dry spring – bad for the grass:

But good for our morale and tans Smile.

I made the most of the nice day by sitting in the sunshine with mum for a couple of hours. It put me in a lazy kind of mood and afterwards I had to drag myself to the gym with the boyfriend. But it was worth it. I know I would have regretted not going.

Buying gym shorts was also a very good idea, even though at the time when I bought them I was worried I wouldn’t get the chance to wear them. Yesterday shorts were very appropriate in the heat! I normally dislike the chill of the gym from the air-conditioning, but I welcomed the cool breeze yesterday.

I focused my workout on strength training yesterday. I started off by warming up with 5 minutes walking and then headed down the end of the gym to lift a few weights. I finished up by warming down with 5 minutes walking. Nothing too strenuous on such a hot day. Smile

Post-workout snack:

A juicy orange satisfied my craving for something sweet and delicious after my workout. I find oranges really summery, maybe because of their bright colourful appearance reminds me of sunshine. Fruit is so refreshing in the summer – I love it Smile

How have you found the warm spring so far?
