Summer 5% Challenge Exercise Plan
Sunday, June 15, 2014
Ahh, summer. When the sun is shining and the days are long. Plenty of time to get in some exercise! My weekly exercise plan for this challenge is
1. Walk 30-40 minutes twice a week before work
2. One upper and one lower body strength workout (30-40 minutes)
3. One long (30+ miles) bicycle ride or one long hike (6+ miles)
I'm becoming more consistent with the early morning (5 a.m.) walks and have a friend who will join me beginning tomorrow. That should really help with consistency.
The challenge starts June 21 and I'll be getting a head start on the 20th with a 3-day, 25-mile, backpacking trip with 7 other women. The first day we'll hike between 6 and 9 miles. The 2nd day will be 10-12 miles and the last day will be whatever is needed to get us back to the cars.
