Official New Exercise Challenge: Week One

Monday, August 03, 2009

Current routine:
-Strength: Sweatsuit to Swimsuit videos.
- Cardio: combination of walking and elliptical.
- I sneak in a few yoga poses here and there.

What I'd like to do this week:
- Run!
- Meet with a trainer to discuss a new strength workout.

Other new exercise ideas:
- Find a new walking path
- Learn a new yoga pose
- Try a new core routine
- Try out Pilates - I used to do it when I had an injury and kind of abandoned it as soon as I was feeling better!
- Organize a new playlist for cardio
- Try programming my own intervals on the cardio machine

I'm very excited about this challenge! I have a tendancy to let my workouts get stale. I think this will inspire me to spend more time thinking about what I'm doing and how to keep it fresh.

Here we go!

    Wow - you are a woman with a plan!

I really like this book: Pilates for the Outdoor Athlete, by Lauri Ann Sticker. It is a wonderful book, and includes a routine geared towards walkers/runners/etc. I got it from the library, and highly recommend it! It's the coolest pilates book I've tried.

I love your plan! It's so positive!
