Well, I'm shattered! Talk about a busy start to the day. :-)
I have completed:
10 minute walk - Week 3 day 3 Warm Up for Walking Plan
Active Health Stats:
Pace - 21 min mile (pleased with this)
Calories - 47
Steps - 1184
Time - 0:11:09
Distance - 0.53 miles
I've been thinking about this, and when you take into account the time over the ten minutes used to get from my DSi to my front gate to start the walk, and the reverse to get back into the house and get my pedometer out of my pocket to record the session, I reckon my actual speed is more likely a 20 min mile. Also, I do about five minutes of warm up exercises before I head out for my walk, which I always forget to add to my count. :-)
Week 2 Day 6 Bootcamp Workout Challenge.
Upper body. Hard work but I do like this one. :-)
Plus the bonus Bootcamp video for the second time. I didn't read the email properly and didn't realise I had to do the bonus video twice in the week. LOL
So, hello again Mr. 15 minute Desk Workout!
Full body, and don't I know it! My poor arms! There is this bit where you do wall push-ups with your thumbs and forefingers touching in order to work the triceps, (I think she said triceps) and zowee! How do you explain the sensation after you have done about three or four of those! Not pain exactly, but it involves huge amounts of arm shakings every two or three reps to shake it off. LOL
I am going to try and keep this video in my repertoire for a while to see if I can improve on it over time. I'm not sure what is in store for weeks three and four of the bootcamp challenge, but I am going to try and fit this video in at least once, maybe twice a week if I can.
Still to do: Short walk to the Co-Op and trampoline/step exercises. Good old Tigger! I don't know where I'd be without him. :-)
On my Land's End to John O'Groats challenge I will reach Truro today (was a mile and a half short yesterday). If I recall correctly, my prize will be a Cornish Pasty recipe! Having been born and raised in Cornwall, and having lived in Truro for many of those years, I have a deep abiding passion for a good Cornish Pasty! Yum!
Well, I have just finished munching on my breakfast - a well-deserved bowl of porridge with cooked apple chunks on top, so I am going to head off to the shop, get the milk, and then see what the rest of my day has in store for me. I see a fair bit of sewing in the cards.... :-)
Hope everyone has a great day!

So, week 3, Day 2 of my walking warm up, and this morning we upped the ante to 15 minutes! It will now fluctuate for a week between 10 and 15 minute walks. And I DID get off my estate! I actually made it over the bridge on the Ipswich Road before my beeper went off for the return leg. I can't believe how excited I was to increase the length of the walk and to see how far I could get in 7 1/2 minutes! My excitement is reflected in my stats! (grinning like Cheshire Cat)
Active Health Stats:
Pace - 21 min mile (was 23 yesterday!)
Calories - 69
Steps - 1736
Time - 0:16:22
Distance - 0.78 miles
That was fun, but the next bit not so much. I hate being on the floor, but...
Week 2 Day 5 Bootcamp Workout Challenge - Done!
This one is all on the floor, working the lower body. I can do the stuff while laid on my back, but laying on my side on my hip is almost impossible. I managed the scissor lift (raising one leg in the air), but for the rest of the moves I turned onto my back and circled my legs in that position instead. It may not have quite the same impact, but at least it is done and I can still walk!
The walk to Waitrose in a wee while will take care of the rest of the steps today, popping me over my two miles and boosting my Land's End to John O'Groats stats a bit. In fact, (goes to check) oh no, not quite. I had hoped to make it to Truro today but I need another 3.3 miles. Hmmm.... maybe if I can get my 'extra ten' in for the British Comedy Lovers team on faithful ol' Tigger (my Trampoline's new name for those not in the know), it will flip me over the amount I need.
You never know!
(Eating the miles, hee hee)
Hope you all have a terrific day!
May all your clouds be helpful ones! :-)
