Default Maintainers Starting Off 2014 in Motion Through January

The best time of year to start moving our bodies more is actually any time at all.

In January, it's easy to forget that.

Some of us see January as a continuation while some of us will come to it as a new beginning.

For those fulfilling a promise to themselves, welcome.

For those of us who seek the energy to keep going, welcome, also.



We're maintainers moving through the month of January.

Squatting in the Smith machine

New Year's Day

4 miles or so round London galleries, Tube and streets. (The steps in the Tube have been particularly good for me these last few weeks. Trying to think of something similar in my rural life.)

Thursday, Jan. 2nd:

45 minutes on treadmill at 4.6 mph, incline of 2.0, then 5 minutes walking at 3.7, then alternating two minutes at 5, with walking.

Sore joints after running, from knees to hamstrings to big toe joints. And I want to curl up and sleep, but I'm drinking coffee & keeping going.

January 2: 110 minutes bikram yoga. The instructor was mean and held us too long in lots of poses while correcting students. Everyone was rolling their eyes. I didn't care for her the first time I took her class....now I really don't care for her. Hypercritical but hopefully I burned a few extra calories glaring at her.

Totals:
2 workouts
215 minutes

Friday, January 3rd:

30 minutes Stairmaster, and this felt good
60 minutes back & biceps routine

I'm amazed to find that I can handle higher weights, which has pushed me out of a rut.

And yes, I trudged through a still settling-out blizzard to walk to my gym, where the manager was triumphant over having opened on time, when nearly nothing else was open for miles except the newstand where the guys who drive plows buy their coffee.

Nothing as yet and it's about 5.30 pm. (Rather a full day, getting back in order after being away for so long + electricity emergency.) I don't usually exercise in the evening but I think I'll try to fit in some stretches.
