The race was a benefit for the zoo and the runners got free admission to the zoo (the after race food was in the zoo area).My highlight of the day was that I got to see the Giraffes eat breakfast.

Got another 5k next Sunday

Default today's excercise

Today was weight training day. I carry a book with me so I look like a complete geek but I like it mainly because the book keeps me motivated. If there are more than one or two days in a row without a workout I'm unhappy. I get my excercises from Shapefit.com and I change them up as much as I can to change the stresses on the muscles (if you could call what I have muscles) and to keep it interesting.

It's been all about walking now that spring is here (or so we pretend) Saturday DH and I walked about 3 miles. Sunday, I walked to church (2.5 miles) I normally get a ride home, but all my ususal suspects were busy, so I walked, bringing it to five, then, this morning no gym (Monday's are so challenging), so I walked to the Subway instead of taking the bus, 2 miles!

Not a great aerobic workout, but better than nothing!

Did my usual just a hair under 2 mi. route today in about 27 minutes. Added more jogging, which is getting easier. Will have to think about upping the distance again soon!

Regards,
Michael

Hey everyone :-)

New to this thread... But today I did a full body weight routine. I have two different full body weight routines that I alternate between on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I got them from Men's Health, and had just switched to these routines last week. I upped my weights today and pushed myself to do more than last time. I'm a little sore, but I love the "pumped" feeling!

Hi Tommy,

Glad to have you on this thread - it's the main reason I joined the forums, I find my friends really get bored when I want to tell them all about today's exercise session. That "pumped" feeling needs to be celebrated!

Hi Abbey,
Its wonderful that you are walking, great for your body plus you are lowering your impact on the environment. If we all walked more we could stick it to the oil companies (at least a little bit). Hope you're not an oil company executive or something!
