Weekly Update #2

I've had a good exercise week.  I ran for the first time in YEARS.  It feels good to be active and enjoying my time outside.  It will feel even better when we get rid of the 100 degree heat with daily heat advisories.  
  • Saturday-swam ~600ft in 30 mins & walked laps in the pool for 20 mins
  • Sunday-hike at the Botanical Gardens ~ 2.5 miles in the 100 degree heat
  • Monday-2.28 miles in 47 mins
  • Tuesday-Couch-to-5K, Week 1, Day 1 workout (5 min warm up, 8 intervals of 60s running/90s walking, then 5 min cool down)
  • Wednesday-walked about 30 minutes (extremely hot & humid)
  • Thursday-Couch-to-5K, Week 1, Day 2 workout (same as Tuesday)
  • Friday-Yoga, sit-ups, push-ups


  1. You are much more disciplined than I...

  2. Yoga is fun! Good stretching and just let's your mind rest!

  3. @Michael--no, not really. I just have something to prove to myself.

    @Ashley--Yoga would be better in a class. Trying to do a pose and looking at the tv and listening to instructions makes it more difficult.

    Thanks, Angie.
