checking in to add to my previous post: I did the exercise I had planned for today.

Still don't feel like running in the snow/cold.

I find 30 minutes to be the max for being on the stairclimber, more than that gets too tedious for my liking. So today the goal is 35 minutes, but in two parts:

One session 15 minutes, one session 20 minutes.

Will report back later to write down I did it (for accountability)

Where is everyone by the way??

Hope you're all having a great weekend!

It could very well be a good sign that there is a lack of posts on Saturday and Sunday

Sounds good Luscicous - breaking up workouts makes sense -

ROgue Slayer - welcome - keep that snow moving. We're snow free here in Boston, so I got an amazing run this AM - 3 miles - hilly in my neighborhood. Passing other runners we didn't say good morning, the greeting is "go pats"

made it to the gym today, didnt feel like doing my run and told myself i could just do 1.5 mile run, which would be an easy day. once i hit that point i felt good still and pushed it to 2 miles

moved to my chest/back weight lifting portion. felt pretty strong and focused for the day, improvement in most lifts! added incline and decline bench which i normally skip for lack of energy. knocked out decline without trouble, but incline my arms kinda gave out on me and i nearly caught the bar with my chest, i guess thats why they have the lower racks

and over the past 2 weeks ive tried to build up to a mile run to close out my day, today i reached that goal! feels good, now to have a cheat day and watch some football!

Friday, went to the gym and back to my rowing machine. Weights too.
Saturday we went canoeing. So many eagles and hawks.
Sunday, yoga today as I'm sore from canoeing. If the vibration from my motorcycle burned off calories I could post 6 hours of that, All I have to show is frozen thighs and sore butt.

RogueSlayer snowshoveling is pretty good exercise, it made me pant and a little dizzy to boot!
breethe congrats on achieving that goal
Easy on the cheat day tho, I had a midnight snack yesterday evening and it almost ruined the whole previous week, calorie deficit-wise.

crazigerl wow 6 hours on a motorcycle, that HAS to be more intense than 6 hours on a couch

Yesterday I did the stairclimber as planned, and threw in some calisthenics as well, I'm still trying to do a proper push up but whenever I get low enought to call it that I collaps, so I'd better call it planking with some movement haha

Today 2X 20 minutes on stairclimber, will report back later.

Have a good day all!

That was funny, when I do the plank I start shaking like crazy, my husband asked me if I was having a seizure.

Wasn't feeling the gym today for weights. Did 40 minutes on the treadmill with the run 1 minute, walk 2 minutes. Then 20 minutes hill climbing on the bike.
