I was overzealous with my goal of 1,800 - It is halfway through the month and I am at a little under 800 minutes. But I am seeing progress. I have been able to up my miles from 2.5 per session to 3.5. And I'm running relatively fast for being new to running (again). I can run a mile in 10-11 minutes.

I still have trouble to motivate myself to run. I tell myself that I am too old to do this (I am 40), but my legs have been telling me that it's ok. Knock on wood, I have had no pains or injuries so far.

Thanks, everybody for posting. You all keep me going.

Here's my stats for the month:

Goal: 1,800 minutes. Starting weight is 149. Current weight is 142 (as of 4/16)

4/1 - 40 minute run
4/2 - 30 minute run/ 100 minutes dancing
4/3 - 60 minute walk
4/4 - 90 minute walk (could not face running- too sore)
4/5 - 30 minute run/ 45 minute walk
4/6 - 90 minute walk (think I ended up walking 6 miles)
4/7 - 40 minute run (stop/start 3 miles)

Week 1 minutes: 370 min

4/8 - 75 minute walk (not very fast)
4/9 - 90 minute walk (I should have run that night)
4/10 - 0 minutes
4/11 - 0 minutes
4/12 - 40 minute run/20 minute walk (Up my miles to 3.5)
4/13 - 40 min run/70 min dancing
4/14 - 30 min run/45 min walk

Week 2: 410 min

4/15 - 45 min walk

Hey MeowMix, looks like you've been doing enough exercise for everyone! I've been sick, but don't want to get out of the practice (since it takes weeks to make it a habit and about 20 minutes to break that habit).

4.1: rest
4.2: 60 min. Jackie Warner Workout dvd
4.3: 40 min JW power circuit training
4.4: 55 min. aerobics
4.5: 40 min JW power circuit training
4.6: 20 min 30DS L2
4.7: 55 min. aerobics

4.8: 40 min JW power circuit training
4.9: 60 min. Jackie Warner Workout dvd
4.10: 50 min. yoga, 40 min. JW power circuit training
4.11: rest--didn't get outside like I'd hoped
4.12: 30DS L1
4.13: 40 min JW power circuit training
4.14: 55 min. aerobics

4.15: sick
4.16: 40 min JW power circuit training
4.17: sick
4.18: 20 min 30DS L2

I've got this cough that comes on at night and keeps me up half the night. Nyquil works for the first few hours, then I'm up coughing away. My head and lungs are killing me, so I did short but intense 20 workout today. Ugh, I'm ready to feel healthy again!

This challenge is hard. I noticed that this week I have slacked on the running and doing more walking. But the running is my fitness exercise. I need to keep doing it. Tonight I have free time so I hope to do running and some strength training. My bowflex is giving me the evil eye.
