I've been derailed this month. It started with knee pain and while I was recovering from that I came down with the flu. Th doctor said I should wait at least a week (or two) to start pushing myself again. <sigh>

But I will return, do my best for the rest of April, and then rock the May challenge.

Yay, casakran! It's wonderful to feel on the right track with exercise. I'm always astounded with how many other things that effects -- mood, sleep, willingness to eat healthy foods.

KarinRose: hope you're feeling better soon. Good for you for posting here and setting your commitment to get back on track. That's a great attitude!

About to go outside and do some more work on our new garden. I don't usually count yardwork in my exercise, but using the pickaxe is strenuous enough that I want to take credit for it.

4/02: zumba
4/03: c25k w5d2 - 20m walk, (9m run, 5m walk) x 2, 20m walk
4/04: more zumba
4/05: nothing, I'm sick
4/06: see above
4/07: see above
4/08: c25k w5d3 sort of - 1/4 mile walk, 1 1/2 mile run, breastfeeding break, 1 mile run, ~20 minutes walk
4/09:
4/10:
4/11: 1 hour digging up a new garden with a pickaxe
4/12: c25k w6d1 - 1/4 mile walk, 1/2 mile run, 1/4 mile walk, 3/4 mile run, 1/4 mile walk, 1/2 mile run, ~15 minute cooldown walk
