Default Exercise Accountability August 2009

Welcome to the exercise accountability thread for Auust 2009. Whether you walk, run, swim, cycle, bellydance, or shred, let's get it done!



This thread is to keep us accountable and keep us motivated and above all to keep us moving! All are welcome, and feel free to join the thread at any time. Some people post a goal for the month, some just keep track of what they do every day. It's not important how you do it, we just need to do it!!

The summer can't last forever, so et out there while you can! Grab your runners, your bike, your yoga mat, your friends, your family, your dog--and get out there and be active!

Yesterday was a pretty killer day. 70 minutes on the bike trainer and a 30 minute run directly after the bike (Tri folks call this a "Brick") and when I was done running I stayed on the treadmill and walked for another 65 minutes starting on an incline of 8 down to 0 by the end. Whew!

I've finished hefting boxes and lifting furniture, at least for a while now, and am in possession of my new apartment, which is only a short walk from the gym I'd joined for the summer. I'd stopped lifting weights during the move, since it seemed kind of redundant, but I'm going to resume now. I am looking forward to re-establishing healthy habits in a new location. It's kind of weird, though, because no one here in my building has ever known the "fat me." They take me at face value, and they see someone of average build who goes out in the morning dressed for the gym or in the evening with a yoga mat over my shoulder.

1: One hour elliptical
2: One hour swimming class
3: One hour elliptical, weights
4: 30 minutes elliptical, 30 minutes bike, abs work, one hour yoga class
5: One hour bike, weights
6: One hour bike
7: One hour elliptical
8: Ran about four miles on a gorgeous, sunny & temperate day, did weights
9: One hour swimming class, the last till September
10: One hour bike, weights
11: One hour elliptical, abs work
12: One hour bike, weights
13: One hour elliptical, abs work
14: Ran for three & a half miles around Beaver Lake, weights
15: Walked eight miles from 9 AM to 5 PM at Bouckville Antique Show (& bought very little; this was not a good year & the dresser & chest of drawers I wanted weren't there)
16: Walked five miles from 9 AM to 3 PM at the show
17: 45 minutes bike, 15 minutes rowing, abs work
18: One hour elliptical, weights
19: 50 minutes bike, 15 minutes rowing, abs work
20: One hour bike, weights
21: One hour elliptical, abs work
22: One hour bike
23: Walked five miles in humidity from 10 AM to 5 PM at Lambertville and New Hope (still no dresser or chest of drawers)
24: One hour bike, weights
25: One hour elliptical, abs work
26: One hour bike, weights
27: One hour bike, some weights
28: One hour elliptical, abs work
