I made it to 100! My body was a little sore from yesterday's workout, ok, very sore, so I decided to do some zero impact exercise. Good thing I've got an Endless pool! I did 30 minutes today, including 1000 backstrokes (2x500). I would have done more, but Hubby wants me to trek into town to look at some furniture he found.
I think I've gotten better at rotating my workouts since I started exercising every day. When my body's sore, I like to swim. We keep our pool pretty warm, so it feels so good on this old body when I climb in. I've also done well with the weights. I've managed three weights sessions/week almost every week this year (only one week had one session). Here's a list of my various exercises:
Jogging when the weather cooperates
Swimming in my Endless pool (including kicks holding onto the kick bar, and backstrokes)
Lifting weights-we have a machine and some free weights
Crunches of all kinds
Zumba on the Xbox Kinect
UFC on the Xbox Kinect (I've only just begun this one)
Other Kinect games with the kids
Bicycling (hopefully the trails aren't trashed from last summer floods. I haven't biked for a while, but am axious to get back at it.)
All this variety has really helped me get through the winter and keep my streak going!
