Thumbs up April Exercise Challenge

Hop into April with extra exercise energy!

State your exercise goal and track it throughout the month with this supportive group of fellow exercisers. We'll compile our workout goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

This thread is for fitness and exercise goals. For other weight loss goals, be sure to see our sister thread: April Weight Loss Challenge

Tabbycat here.
I really dropped the ball the last few months.
I have a walking 5K at the end of April, so my goal will be to get in shape for it by walking 30 minutes a day four times a week.

Monday April 1: 30 min
Saturday April 6: 30 min
Mon Apr 8: 30 min
Tues Apr 9: 30 min
Fri Apr 12: 30 min
Sun Apr 14: 30 min
Mon Apr 15: 30 min

Monday's workout was solid - 55 minutes of heavy weight-lifting, 45 minutes of cardio, 15 minutes of stretching.

Today's workout was also solid effort - 40 minutes of heavy lifting, 50 minutes of cardio, 10 minutes of abs and stretching.

I am traveling the rest of this week and won't (formally) workout, but do expect to do some leisurely walking on the weekend.

My "goal" for exercise this month is to make sure I am getting in 3 x solid workouts every week and try to add in the odd hour or 2 of walking in the evenings (now that they are getting longer and spring is coming!).

Back to the gym, today. Lifted weights for about 35 minutes (my back really did poop out during my deadlifts and my T-bends. Sigh). And I did cardio-step for 50 minutes and a quick 10-minute ab/stretch at the end.
