The weekend was BAD - NO exercise... I ran today, but not to the point of calling it W7D1... My PMSing body wasn't feeling it today, so I just ran a mile or so then did run/walk intervals for another mile or so. Plus I have a 5 min walk to and from the course. I'm going to try to do some strength training tonight - 60 days left till vacation and I need to get moving on my toning!

I'm just updating my original post with my exercises as well as my ticker for minutes.

Realized today that I can prop up my laptop right next to my treadmill so I can catch up on all the Grey's Anatomy I've got downloaded! One episode is the perfect time for a workout, and it's a good distraction so I don't keep watching the timer. Was feeling energetic after work, so I walked home after work, too. The weather's been great lately - hope it keeps up! Happy Spring!

Got through C25K W2D2 last night with DS, we both did well on our own and it's good to run together again, but my body was in rough shape later last night. I think I must've tweaked something in my back after we ran. I had done some gardening and housework, but nothing strenuous. I guess I better call my chiro. It's still giving me trouble!

Another nice day out! Really enjoying walking outside. It's much easier to avoid staring at the time when I've got a destination in mind. Did a 2-mile walk with the dog today + treadmill time. Was hoping to get in 4 miles, but wasn't feeling it - still happy to do more than 3 miles. Working up to 4!

Keep up the hard work, everyone!

slowrunner: I love watching shows during workouts. One of the reaons I started varying my workouts is that I was getting injuries from doing only the treadmill. Now, I've figured out a way to play Walk It Out on my Wii and watch shows on my laptop. It really helps with motivation!

SBD Sass and Ms Perception: sympathies for the back trouble. That's something I have to be so careful about!

I'm going to have to get my rear in gear if I'm going to hit 1000 minutes... I'll be lucky to hit 600 at this rate - not good!
