April 30, 2012: I walked my mile (1.10 to be exact), swam my 5 laps, did 15 minutes of leg kicks in the pool, 20 pull ups, and sat in the hot tub 20 minutes. I am tired, but happy to be feeling well enough to get back on track!

This sounds like a fun thread, though the only exercise I got yesterday was walking at the Mall looking for shoes for a wedding! And the 20 minutes in the hot tub sounds really great!

On Monday, though, I went to my daughter's gym with her. (I was visiting - she lives out of state.) I'll count that workout as my first for May. It's a "Cross-fit" gym. They're pretty hard core on fitness and have what they call the "workout of the day." Everyone does the same workout, and the time it takes you to finish is recorded. They modify any exercise you can't do because of an physical limitation, but really encourage you to push yourself a bit harder than you think you can. Running was involved on Monday, but biking or using a rowing machine was an acceptable substitution. Here's what we did:
Row - 400 meters
Kettle bell swings - 20 (20 pound)
Squats with a medicine ball for added weight - 20 (12 pound)
4 times - in about 22:30
Then we did sit-ups (me - 85, DD - 100)
I was happy to match my daughter in time, but she used higher tension on the rower and a heavier kettle bell and medicine ball.

Tonight it's back to my gym where things aren't so hard core! Wednesday night is "boot camp" and I'll post later with what we did.

This thread might get me to the gym more often. Thanks for starting it, Small Steps!

"Boot camp" was a good workout tonight. We did Cardio, strength, and abs in cycles - 4 cycles in all - then a few more minutes of legs. It's an hour class and we were all dripping by the time we were done.

Tomorrow is Karadio - sort of like kick boxing. It's one of my favorites.

May 10th - just bumping this back to the top. Anyone else want to join us in posting exercise? I've just been editing mine, so it doesn't move up like when a new post has been made.

Small Steps - where are you? How was your birthday?

I just decided to try to up my discipline and be more stringent about meeting both my eating and fitness goals at the same time.

In general, here is what I do for exercise: running, walking, pushups, situps, rock climbing, and occasionally bootcamp or willpower and grace class.

My goals:

Run every day and push for improvement -- either increase distance or decrease time for the distance I travel every day.

Rejoin my weekly willpower and grace class starting the third week in May.

Start bootcamp class again in June.

Consider starting spin classes in July (can't do them until my kids are out of school because of the timing).

Complete the 200 situps and 100 pushups programs online.

Here's this week so far:

4 mile run in 1:06 on 5/7 wk 1, day 1 of 200 situps program
4 mile run in 1:04 on 5/8 wk 1, day 1 of 100 pushups program
2.5 mile run in :39 and 3 mile walk in 1:00 on 5/9 wk 1, day 2 200 situps program
2.5 mile run in :36 and 3 mile walk in 1:00 on 5/10 wk 1, day 2 100 pushups program

Going to run a 5k on Mother's Day!

Hi, Defenestrator! If "willpower class" is what it sounds like, I need that one! I really admire the fact that you're running. I really don't like to run at all, though I did participate in a 5K on 4/28 because I was visiting my DD in NC and she had already signed up to do it. I walked and ran and finished in about 37:30. There are a million other things I'd rather do for exercise, though.

I'm going to update my original list with today's workout. Good luck with your renewed exercise goals.

Willpower and Grace is a class that combines yoga and pilates and a lot of deep squats and lunges while having a cardio component too. It's done barefoot. It helps me a lot with balance and strength in my core.

The reason for the cramping seemed to be the stomach flu I had Sunday night and Monday. Did a very slow 2.5 mile walk on Monday the 14th, and a pretty wimpy 2.5 mile run today. Skipped my pushups and situps. Hopefully will get caught up tomorrow.
