Ok so I'm committed now, it's going down in black and white...
Now that i've figured out my vacation workout schedule, here goes:

Non vacation days (16): Workout 14 out of 16 days, at least 2 times per day with strength training 3 times per week.

Vacation days (15): Run 5 days, strength train 4 days.

And my minutes will be what they be...

to all the Newbies! I look forward to getting to know you all! This is a great bunch of girls and they are pretty much the reason I'm still exercising!

FSA~ Hey hun, I'm going to change up my August Exercise Goals a little, could you update my goals please?

Currently they are:
Continue HIIT 3x/wk, continue strength training 3x/wk, add C25K 3x/wk, + trying pilates

However, after doing the first C25K workout this morning, I officially came to my senses and decided that I'm ditching the HIIT. However...I will be adding another form of exercise on my ST'ing days so it's now:

C25K 3x/Wk, ST'ing 3x/Wk, Add an additional form of exercise on my ST'ing days

I figured that since I want to up my exercise I should start doing different stuff to keep it interesting! That's one of the reasons I had 'try Pilates' in my original goals. So, I've got a few workout DVDs and a few sitting in my Netflix Que, not to mention I've got On Demand cable with some exercise shows on there--and I'll just mix it up!

Thanks so much hun!

Since I didn't meet this goal in June, I will shoot for it this month:

  • Start hiking or some outside activity once a week
  • Work out while on vacay

Here we go...

August 1st ~ 27 mins of the wonkiest cardio ever!

Okay girls, I am not off to a fantastic start. I *attempted* my HIIT today and whoa...lemme just say that one should not underestimate the importance of a good sports bra! My good one is in the wash so I grabbed my old one--not good! I knew right off the bat that doing all the HIIT intervals wouldn't be an option. So, I put the treadmill to the highest incline and a combo of brisk walking up hill and I think I got in 6 30 second running intervals--have you ever tried running while holding onto your chest? Lemme tell ya, even though they're smaller, the girls were all over the place and boy did I have a hard time running!

However, by the end of my usual HIIT time I was dripping sweat and laughing, so I guess all in all it was a decent workout. Good thing I got in that extra cardio yesterday--I feel a little better about my sloppy workout today.

Welcome to August!
Work out number 1 accomplished.
I'm totally gunshy on the C25K though. Working out in public (read: struggling to work out in public) is hard for me.

Oh my goodness...I haven't posted my goals here yet. How did I miss that? Too much distraction I guess. Okay, so my goals are:

1. Complete C25K, afterward log 6 miles running/wk
2. Bike 12 miles/wk
3. Strength train 2x/wk
4. Log 1300+ ex. min. for August

I'm training for a 5K in September and a duathlon in October. It should help me have more direction in my cardio sessions. For strength, I'm actually going to follow a program instead of just "winging it" which never works for me. Here's to an even more successful month than July (was for me)!
