Fitness Check-In Week 2

How did we do ladies?  I decided to do the check-in on Mondays now because its easier to remember.  I saw @swazzle got some zumba in - great job!  I can't move today though...I did a strength class on Saturday and clearly I need to do more strength and less cardio because my body is not used to strength at all.

Last week:

Monday: 1 mile walk, cleaned the house for a few hours too

Tuesday: Spin for 45 minutes

Wednesday: Spin for 45 minutes, 5 mile walk

Thursday: 40 minutes eliptical, 1 mile walk

Friday: Zumba for 30 minutes, 5 mile walk

Saturday: Two "try it" classes...a 30 minute rhythm ride (spin on crack) and a 30 minute strength kettle bell class.  H wanted to go for a walk later that day too so I walked with him about 3 miles I think?

Sunday: Rest day.  I ended up walking to get my coffee that morning so that was a leisurely 1.5 mile walk.

Not sure if I'm going to do something today that is heavy.  I'm still sore from strength on Saturday.  I'll likely do a short walk.

  • Good idea to add this week's plan, @swazzle!

    Monday - Crossfit (done!)
    Tuesday - rest
    Wednesday - Crossfit
    Thursday - 2-3 mile run
    Friday - Crossfit
    Saturday - Crossfit (I might run to Crossfit to make it a 2-workout kinda day).
    Sunday - rest

    That will put me at 15 workouts on 9/20. I've totally got this!

  • Great job everyone!  I missed yesterday entirely.  I'm bummed but it was a needed rest day.  I'll likely have to do a form of light cardio today too because I'm still recovering from strength on Saturday (which is crazy).  Here is my week roughly...

    Monday: Nada
    Tuesday: 30-40 minutes of cardio
    Wednesday: Spin and walk home 5 miles
    Thursday: Interval express maybe?  Yoga?
    Friday: Spin (or zumba) and walk home 5 miles
    Saturday: Spin and walk a few miles
    Sunday: Short walk

    Everyone is doing AWESOME!! :) So great to see! I've done 9 workouts so far this month (each of them being a 2 mile run). Today will be my 10th, which puts me at 50% of goal on the halfway point of the month. I'm proud of that! My FMIL comes on Friday for 10 days, so hopefully that doesn't disrupt my running too much.

    Here is my plan for the week:

    Tuesday: run
    Wednesday: maybe a run
    Thursday: run
    Friday: nothing
    Saturday: nothing
    Sunday: run

    That will put me at 13 workouts for the month! WOO!

    My friend and I did a 2 mile walk yesterday, but it was a slow easy walk so it probably doesn't count.

    I ran around the laser tag course A LOT. That may have worked off some of the calories from my Long Island Iced Tea....maybe.....
