Days 365 & 366-One Leap Year of 10min/day of exericse!

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Today, November 29th, is my one year anniversary for doing 10 min of exercise per day! I thought my math was off, but then I remembered that 2012 is a leap year. I double checked my blogs from a year ago, and November 29th was when I started this challenge.

Yesterday's workout was a nice walk with hubby and my twins (7). It wasn't the stellar workout that I wanted, but I really enjoyed having some of my family with me. I've been working a lot of shifts at both my jobs, and it's slowing me down a bit. It's also taking away a lot of valuable exercise time.

Today (Day 366) !!! I wanted to do a better workout to celebrate one year. I walked by myself in my new shoes for a total of 60 minutes and 3.4 miles. There were several hard hills, and I tried to push myself. Hubby exchanged my Asics that I just got (one or two months ago) and got me new ones. The new ones are slightly different, but I think they'll work. I can't believe my shoes got a hole in the toe, and they were so new. My last Asics didn't get holes until after two, maybe two and a half years. Anyway, I had a fantastic walk at a pace of 17.6 minutes per mile. That is a fast pace, especially considering the hills.

Well, I have to go. My 14 year old son wants to go on a walk, so I think I'll up my mileage for the day.

We just added 1.2 more miles to my total today. Half of that was up hill, including about 130 stairs by the schools.
