My September 500 Challenge

Monday, September 03, 2012

Coach Nicole has this great blog post www.dailyspark.com/blog.
on a fitness challenge for the fall.

I've decided for a modified challenge in the month of September: 500 fitness minutes for the month and 500 cardio calories burned per week.

I know, it's not as ambitious as it could be, but physical therapy for my knee has slowed me down. I'm doing about 2-3 hours per week of strength training exercises, but my cardio has dropped off the cliff. High-impact activities are out, and even walking is sometime trouble. Most of my cardio has been on my exercise bike.

Hopefully this challenge will jump start my cardio activities and get me moving more.

    When I hurt my knee back in July, I still made sure to get my cardio in by working out on the bike as well as swimming. I was able to keep it up and slowly get back to TM workouts by the middle of August. Once, I really started going on the treadmill hard, I was able to do better and faster than before I hurt my knee.

    Keep up the cardio, even if it's just the bike, because you don't want to have to start over!!!

    You can do it! And I hope your knee is healed and you are feeling better and pain free super soon!
