For my goal, I don't know, I might even write that in the list, lol. I'm in Mexico from March 31 to April 7 so I won't be keeping my regular routine and I'll need to re-assess my running injury once I get back to see how it's doing.

The plus side is I'm doing school on April 15 and don't start again until May, I have a whole month to workout without having to balance school in there, sweet bliss.

That was the long way of saying I will hold off and commit to figuring out what I'm going to do but only after I have a tan.

Alrighty ladies, what's your aspirations this month?

Tummy-I love your explanation! I'd love to wait and assess things after I have a tan, but we'd be waiting a while!

My goals are:
1. Swim 600M or more 1-2x/week
2. Bike 1x/week (if temp allows)
3. Run 3-4x/wk, build up miles

Joining in here for the first time!

My goal for this month is a small one - just to keep on track with my physical therapy excercises as set by my physical therapist - this means both doing all the excercises he assigns on a regular basis AND following his recommendations about what NOT to do to avoid re-injuring my back. It will be a delicate balance!

I'll go for the same goal as last month. Start doing yoga and exercise 5-6 days per week.

I didn't start yoga last month like I had hoped to--I'm still waiting for my yoga friend to give me her dvd she made--I will start that when I get it.

It seems wrong to start the month off with a rest day, but after going for 11 days straight, and having to be somewhere this morning, I haven't exercised yet, and don't know that it's going to fit into my evening. Oh well!

I posted some of this in the April weight loss challenge. But I need support in a fitness thread.

I have a dance music festival to go to on Memorial Day weekend. It will entail 36+ hours of music and dancing over 3 days. I need to get in shape. Haha, some people train for marathons- I train for dance parties.

I want to exercise (run, walk, bike, and/or dance) every single day this month. Will mix up exercise to reduce injury risk.

Goal: 1,800 minutes. My starting weight is 149.

4/1 - 40 minute run
4/2 - 30 minute run/ 100 minutes dancing
4/3 - 60 minute walk
4/4 - 90 minute walk (could not face running- too sore)
4/5 - 30 minute run/ 45 minute walk
4/6 - 90 minute walk (think I ended up walking 6 miles)
4/7 - 40 minute run (stop/start 3 miles)

Week 1 minutes: 370 min

4/8 - 75 minute walk (not very fast)
4/9 - 90 minute walk (I should have run that night)
4/10 - 0 minutes
4/11 - 0 minutes
4/12 - 40 minute run/20 minute walk (Up my miles to 3.5)
4/13 - 40 min run/70 min dancing
4/14 - 30 min run/45 min walk

Week 2: 410 min

4/15 - 45 min walk

I started the C25K yesterday. I will be redoing the first day on Sunday to sync the program up with my weekly schedule, but I did start it on the first day of the month.

4.1: rest
4.2: 60 min. Jackie Warner Workout dvd

I thought I was going to die today. For some reason the workout was really hard. I changed up the routine so I did upper body first, then core then lower body. Anyone know what the "proper" sequence is supposed to be? Maybe there's a way not to feel so whipped by the end of it. On the other hand, I was able to do a harder workout on the core, which I usually save for last, Maybe it's just that I'm gonna be whooped by the last routine whatever it is!
