2012 Month by Month: March/April

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Walked 20/29 days in Feb, but the food recording bit the dust really fast, alas.
Walked 19 days in March plus kayaked 2 other days. And so far, 3/4 days walking in April.

This month I've started using a heart rate monitor to make sure I'm not just strolling for nothing, which will likely speed me up a bit. The friend I walk with is not so keen to work hard (has some medical problems), so we'll see how that works out, though our pace hasn't been bad--certainly we arrive home in a sweat. Today I was alone & got through my 3.52 km (2.2 miles) several minutes faster than usual. I did toss in a couple of running intervals, which I may be able to do while walking with my friend--run out ahead & then back to her or something.

Anyway, walking through way below freezing temps and snow should be behind us. It's great to see spring! I won't ruin the moment by mentioning black flies ... oops, did I say that out loud? ;-)

Best wishes to everyone for keeping on with the exercise program -- if we want our health & strength to last as long as we do, exercise is a must!


p.s. I still have to get my free weights back in action ... will this be the month?? Stay tuned.

    Me too -- I wish I lived near you so we could be walking buddies. I could sure use somebody to help me get my butt out of this chair! emoticon

    That sounds good, running ahead and then back. Good luck on getting back to the weights. Have a great day.
