Well, it's almost halfway through the month and I just realized that apparently I forgot to join this... better late than never.... I have my usual goal of 1hr/day.

ETA: I am currently re-thinking what my fitness goals are. I am beginning a weightlifting program and instead of just "trying to run" I may just embrace my intervals, push it a bit harder and call it HIIT. So then my minutes goals don't make any sense. I think my goal should be do *something* even if it's just a walk, every day, with one planned rest day each week ...

Goal: 6 days/week workout (yoga/weightlifting/running intervals/walking) "rest day" can include walking but not counting walking unless it is 30+ min.
  • M & W - strength-training/weightlifting
  • Tue/Thu/one weekend day - Yoga (I hope I am going to be able to do this with strength-training!!!)
  • 2 or 3 times/week/doesn't matter which day - HIIT; running/walking
√ Feb 13 - 30 min strength-training (plus 30 min stretching)
√ Feb 14 - 120 min (60 min yoga + 60 min walking)
√ 15 - 30 min strength-training
√ 16 - Yoga
17 - HIIT
18 - Yoga
19 - Walking/HIIT
20 - begin strength-training "for real"
21 - Yoga PM
22 - 2nd day real weightlifting program...
