My fitness goals for the Summer 5% challenge

Saturday, June 14, 2014

My fitness goals for the Summer 5% challenge are to keep it up!

*I'm doing great with tennis twice a week. Since Tennis is Tuesdays and Thursdays I will continue to do my TNT challenge (from BLC) before everyone gets to the court on Tuesday.

*I will keep doing distance hikes/walks/runs once a week on the weekend or an evening after work to keep warmed up for the distance races I'm going to do this fall. It has gotten too hot by lunch to continue my walking at lunch. Our office is small and I don't enjoy coming back from my walk all sweaty! I will go for a walk either after work or after dark at least once a week on non tennis (week) days. And go for a distance walk/run or hike once a week.

*I will do some form of strength training for at least 5 minutes every morning (m-f) when I'm getting ready for work. I'll post ideas (exercises) on my mirror for inspiration of what I can do. This is my biggest "weakness". I know it will make a difference but I make lots of excuses. I will work to eliminate those excuses by making what to do readily accessible (exercises on mirror) and getting it done early so I can be lazy and not get it done at the end of the day. I'm usually too hungry by the time I get home then I eat and I'll get sick to my stomach if I do ST after eating!

*I will get the "new to me" bike I recently got ready to ride so I can go for a ride when I don't want to walk or hike.

Work in progress, as other things come to mind or I need to tweek what is here I'll come make changes. And refresh the blog on a more current date.

To those of you reading this. If you have something that's working for you that targets my area of opportunity (strength training) please offer your suggestions in the comments below!
