Last weekend I exceeded my monthly goal of 1k fitness minutes. I told myself this didn't mean I was done for the month - I even put it in a status update. And then I promptly didn't exercise all week. There's one more week left in the month, and part of it I will not get to see my running partner, but I want to soldier forth!
I've decided '13 will be our lucky year (collectively). But as far as fitness minutes go, luck is not a factor. Wishing and hoping aren't really factors either, doing is. And even more importantly, making those minutes count, with appropriate intensity levels, is key.
Here's what my Dec 1100 minutes looks like. I included my stretching and Crossfit, they are not all cardio minutes.
12/1/12 ::: 91 min - crossfit at gym a.m.
12/2/12 (Sunday) ::: 75 min - run week 5/1 3.6mi, stretch
12/3/12 ::: 82 min - run week 5/1 again, 2mi, and 1+mi walk, stretch
12/4/12 ::: 120 min - 60 min - crossfit lunch, 60 min - p.m. Zumba
12/5/12 ::: 45 min - run week 5/2 treadmill gym
12/6/12 ::: 60 min - crossfit lunch
12/7/12 ::: 80 min - run week 5/3, 3mi stretch
12/8/12 ::: 80 min - crossfit at gym a.m.
12/9/12 (Sunday) ::: 80 min - run week 6, day 1, 3mi, stretch
12/10/12 ::: 10 minute walk
12/11/12 ::: 60 min - crossfit lunch
12/12/12 ::: 0
12/13/12 ::: 60 min - crossfit lunch
12/14/12 ::: 0
12/15/12 ::: 75 min - run week 6, day 3, stretch
12/16/12 (Sunday) ::: 90 min - crossfit at gym a.m.
12/17, 12/18, 12/19, 12/20, 12/21, 12/22
late off work, missed crossfit due to work lunch parties, no 10k run training, worked Saturday, lots of excuses, and no backup plans
12/23/12 (Sunday) ::: 88 min - run week 7, day 3, stretch
What's the minute plan for this week, 2 holidays and 1 14-hr workday?
I was going to bump up my minutes to cover the 120 minutes of post running stretching in there, but at 1100, that's not too far away. My busiest week was 462 minutes, I think that's a bit high (but brings me over 1500 mins, tempting). Instead, let's do an additional 250 (my current weight) beyond what I did today.
Total Goal: 1,350 minutes
* 1,313 (because it's more fun to think about, and in honor of our lucky year coming up)
* Christmas morning run with Heather
* All the days of the 10k program due (no more skipping)
* At least 1 crossfit routine - it will have to be on my own, no instructor this week
