Default Maintainers on the Move, Marching Forth

When someone says the word "march," I don't know about you all, but I think of several things: The month. A uniformed high school band with a huge drum. The family in "Little Women." And very persistent birds walking upright across frozen fields.



Let us all show the persistence of penguins as we move through the month of March, maintaining our hard-won health and fitness.

[P.S., Yes, this title means I'm thinking of you, Lori Bell, and wishing good things for you in the coming month.]

Friday, March 1st:

30 minutes Stairmaster stepmill, resistance at nine, random intervals, and this was like punishment today
60 minutes back & biceps routine
30 minutes back on the Stairmaster, which is usually easier on the second bout -- but this time, it wasn't.

Look, I did it. It wasn't pretty today, and I didn't want to, but I did it.

Hiking with a woman who runs a weight loss support group. I am one of her "wellness experts". We were going over the subject of the talk she wants me to give this month on eating your vegetables. I had to stop and laugh out loud at how much my life has changed. Former almost-couch potato who loved her candy and junk food, now an "expert" on activity and eating well!

Saturday, March 2:

60 minute spin class with weight intervals
60 minute Pilates mat class


Another lackluster workout session, this one again due to my not getting in enough sleep. I forget that part of the equation at my peril.

Haven't any exercise to report, just wanted to say I love the title "March Forth". I kind of think of "76 Trombones" wlth all of us trying to keep in step.

Marching is much better than waddling a la the penguins. Although if I remember the documentary correctly the emperor penguin males don't eat at all while babysitting their chicks - for months! They must all be really skinny by the end of that - no waddling due to corpulence there.

March 1st: 1.65 mile run
March 2nd: 1 mile run & 90 minute Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga class

I've set a goal to run at least one mile a day in March. I have a 5 mile race booked in two weeks and on Sundays I usually run at least 3. The weekends will be easy, it's during the week I'll have to really really work on it, but if it was going to be easy I wouldn't have to set the goal

Sunday, March 3rd:

15 minutes Stairmaster, the usual setting, realizing that I sweat so hard partly because of the layer of warm air that has risen toward the gym ceiling & the height the machine raises me to
60 minutes shoulders, biceps and triceps routine
45 minute spin class

March 2: 70 minutes Spin class-- the computer on my bike was wildly inaccurate and I quickly realized it was saying I was burning more calories, going faster, etc. than I actually was. I started having fun with it to see how high I could get everything to go. According to the computer, I went over 40 miles and burned over 1700 calories. Don't I wish!?

2 workouts
