SparkCoach ftw!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Once again, my daily SparkCoach challenge, coupled with my goal of 500 monthly fitness minutes, got me off my butt today! In between jobs today, I decided to get in 10 minutes of informal, low-impact aerobics, so I did a little Leslie Sansone-Chris Freytag-Amy Dixon mash-up while catching up on a little Barefoot Contessa (I am a Food Network JUNKIE). My SparkCoach challenge today was to do at least 60 minutes of high intensity exercise during my normal workout, so I did a 90 second jog. That doesn't sound like much, but you must realize that I am not a jogger. I walk fast and do aerobics, but I haven't progressed to jogging yet. So that 90 seconds of jogging was not only challenging; it was encouraging. I didn't even know that I COULD jog for 90 seconds. Go, me!

I felt pretty good after that, so I did 25 full jumping jacks. I normally do modified jacks, but the mini jog had me so pumped up that I ripped out those jacks like a boss.
