Get back in the swing of things now that PT is no longer stealing all my gym time (although it is still stealing most of the time AT the gym)

Run 4-5 days/week - I'm at 4 most weeks now, my relay team will be starting an evening trail run weather permitting, still not sure if I am ready for the terrain or pace.

Gym 2 days - cycling, pt exercises and if time weights (I HATE that they have been pushed to the back burner but pt has to come first)

Yoga 1 day/week

Today I will try to do an easy run ~ 4-5, still having to work around dh taking family back to the airport today and tomorrow.

I'm going to be active for at least 20 minutes a day. I'm joining the walk in at work this month and will walk in the three mile route at least 3 days a week.

I will also have my friend Kate take me to her gym and will get her help on feeling comfortable with weight lifting.

I'm going easy on goals this month because of the whole wedding thing - but I have at least 2 full weeks that will be "normal routine", then a week where I can probably slide in some routine..then the cruise, where I've given myself a rough exercise goal of 360 min (1 hour, 6 days out of 10). I may get more on the cruise, depending. Soo...

1000 minutes in April. More modest than most months, but I think its closer to feasible.

Starting off with 60 min elliptical today.

This month I plan to keep up with my running, maybe even stepping it up to 80 miles total. I also want to make sure I do strength training at least twice a week and yoga at least once a week.

I didn't think I'd want to work out today because I ran my 10k yesterday, but I had all sorts of energy, so I did 20 minutes of yoga, 40 minutes of cardio kickboxing, and 40 minutes of upper body and ab work.

Ok, girls - I must admit...I hate to exercise! I never used to, but since I've gotten heavy it hurts my joints. I find it hard to fit exercise into my day, but I am going to try to walk around the track for 20 - 30 minutes everyday if possible. I have restless leg syndrome, so I can't exercise at night, it has to be during the day. This can create a problem because my work day is really unpredictable. I'm going to really try this week, though, I do feel better mentally when I get moving. Thanks for a motivation thread!

babsyW -- I have restless leg syndrome too, I find exercise aleviates the restlessness... I totally understand not working out at night specially something that works your legs and lower body. I have started swimming and that makes me sleep like a baby... I also take calcium and magnesium before bed...

Today -- leg workout

Thank you Ilene - I have not met another soul that has RLS! Are you on any medication? I take Mirapex right now, but it is starting to become ineffective so I think that I will have to switch to Requip.
Maybe I will try swimming. We have a terrific pool at the High School. As for today...I WILL walk! No excuses!

Hope everyone has a Great day!

Babs -- I don't take meds, I guess I'm not that bad, of course my doctor wanted to put me on meds, but I wanted to try Calcium Magnesium at night before bed first, it works for me and I feel the difference when I forget take that supplement.
