This month has flown by, I can’t believe there are only two days left for this months incentive program. Unfortunately I took too many days of in the last few weeks that I will have workout today and tomorrow to complete the 80% for the month or I will have to do over three hours to complete the 70%….I think I’ll be going with 2 more days of working out. I had taken a break from Couch to 5k due to the fact our weather has been rain, rain and more rain which makes it difficult to get out and run. The Hubz on the other hand has a beautiful gym at work so he has been doing his C25K on the treadmill at work and is a week ahead of me. Also in new and exciting news the Hubz an I signed up for our first 5K you can read more about it here. With that being said I am back on the C25K wagon and am taking advantage of the sunny days to get out and prepare for my first 5K. Okay so lets get to the break down of the past week April 22-28:
- Friday OFF
- Saturday 1.5 mile walk and power yoga 1hr 35min
- Sunday 2 miles hike – 1 hour
- Monday 20 minute Yoga/Abs/Legs workout
- Tuesday OFF
- Wednesday C25K Day 2 Week 1 plus walking- total 4 miles in 58 minutes
- Thursday- 20 minute Ab workout
Totals: 22/24 days and 14hrs 23minutes/15hours
April 29th Friday- 20 cardio workout
April 30th Saturday- nothing- I spent Saturday cooking, cleaning, demoing chocolate, preparing for a birthday party and hosting a birthday party with only about 30 minutes to sit down and relax. This resulted in my fail of not completing this months challenge.
This equals a giant FAIL for the 80% & 70% rule for April. It is really unfortunate because it as a matter of 17 minutes and 1 day. So what have I learned? Those days when I took a day off because I was tired or just didn’t want to workout I should have just sucked it up and done 20 minutes because you can never tell what is going to come up, especially at the end of the month. Oh well lets move on to this month:
May 2011 Goals
- Must workout 25 days
- Total of 15.5 hours
- Must workout 22 days
- Total of 18.5 hours
So far off to a good start after yesterday’s 2.5 mile 60 minute walk and plans for C25K and lots of work in our garden plot.
