Hi Guys

Great idea:

My goals are 1280 minutes for the month as follows

10k per week running, so a total of 40k for September or 240 mins for the month

cycle to work twice a week - 560 mins for the month

Circuit training - 1 hour per week 240 mins for the month

Yoga -1 hour per week 240 mins for the month

If i get a swim or a surf in it will be a bonus. Also, this month will be a challenge as I have a friends wedding and a holiday abroad. Not complaining about that though!!

Good luck everyone :-)

Alright, my goal for Sept is 1500 minutes.

I took everyone's advice, and tried week 2 of C25K. I think I could have totally done it if I hadn't moved to the new house. Everything surrounding where I live is either up or down hill. I wasn't familiar with any of the little roads around here, and started to walk down it, only for it to turn into a dead end, so turned around and then my first run came. Almost died running uphill, lol. Tried another road--also a culdesac so I had to turn around, and yep, my 2nd run also ended up being on a HUGE hill, which this time I did not finish running. Third run was downhill (so easy, lol) and 4th run was on flat ground. 5th run uphill again and I just gave up. 6th run wasn't even on a hill and I said scr*w it--I'm done! Walking back to the house was so uphill that I was pooped just from that pushing DD in her stroller. So, I think I am going to put C25K on hold for a bit and just go walking up the hills around here for now. I am planning on getting a membership to the Y though, so I'll try starting up the program again on the treadmill. Nervous about running in front of people on a treadmill as I will probably slip and hurt myself or go crashing into another machine and hurt somebody else along with me and my pride....but I've decided to try this whole working out on public thing a try! So I guess that will be another Sept goal--to go workout in the gym!

Well I started REALLY really slow for this but at least I did something I suppose, I'm glad that I have something to report to.

Week 1
1. 10 min
2. 0 (grumble grumble)
3. 20 min and 1mile
4. 10 min and the stairs
5. 0 (I don't like putting that down )
6. 35 min 5 miles (on the bike, but it still counts in my mind)
7. 30 min 4.75 miles

summary week 1: 105 min 10.75 mi
Do or Do Not. There is no Try.

So I was all stressed out today and couldn't wait to get to the gym to work it out. But by the time I got there I had reached the point of stress-induced nausea. I hoped I could push through but I just kept feeling worse. So I left, telling myself "I'm going to go home, do what I have to do, and come back to do my cardio."
So I went home, cried, screamed, vented to a friend, and ate a banana. My nausea went away but I didn't feel like working out anymore. I felt like moping! The good ol' fatty stand-by that helped me gain so much weight: sit on my *** and feel sorry for myself.
Somehow, I managed to make myself go back to the gym. 30 treadmill, 30 min elliptical. I feel so much better now!

Whoo, I'll join this one too!! My goal is 1200 mins this month. That's elliptical and yoga and doesn't include walks since I throw those in randomly when I've got time and don't really track em. So yes, 1200 mins is my goal!
