Day 14 Exercise Challenge

Thursday, September 09, 2010

I haven't been providing updates, but I am keeping to my exercising everyday. I think this has has been one of the best things I've done so far on spark.

I ran a half marathon on Saturday. I ran with friends and we took our time, stopping for photos, stretching and a ridiculous number of bathroom breaks. Sunday it would have been so tempting to say that I was tired, sore, or had done enough the day before. But because I have this challenge, I did a yoga video. I was also back out running with a 3 mi run on Monday. The swimming plan is going well too. I'm on week two of 0-1650. This week, I'm progressing to 200m without taking a break.

I was having a hard time keeping track of which day I was on, so I started a spreadsheet (nerd!). And since I'm a complete data junkie, I can tell you that for the past 14 days I have exercised 705 minutes and the counter says I've burned 6650 calories. Consistency pays off.

    Hahaha - I'm a total nerd too. I love spreadsheets that auto-calculate things for me. :) I'm very visual so being able to see my progress really helps me out, plus I'm totally OCD and need stuff like that to stay organized.

Sounds like you are really doing awesome. Great job! :)
