Thank you!

My bridges are actually in St. Paul - I go up the Wabasha Street bridge, and then cross west again over the Roberts Street bridge. I practically need ropes, pitons, and oxygen for that first one.

I guess if I had that bridge to walk across everyday, I wouldn't change a thing either. That has to be very beautiful and soothing too, even if it is exercise.

I'm from Mpls, but didn't live near the bridge. But I've crossed it plenty! Most of my family lives in Eden Prairie, Woodbury, and Brooklyn Park now, and I'm in SC. Happy Walking!!

I'm guessing Sly walked across the bridge again.

I did not go cycling. (My husband said he would go with me today, but by the time he was ready, it was raining.)

So instead... I did nothing! (Well, we went shopping, I did some walking, we cleaned the kitchen cupboards, but nothing I'm logging as cardio.) A day off for me.

OK. I did my usual half hour bridge walk across the Mississippi and then across again. And I must have sweated off three pounds, just so you know.

I will commit to at least 30 min, 3 days of cardio each week.

I will use a combination of my Leslie Sansone DVD's and the elliptical. I'll alternate my DVD's to include cardio w/ST on one of those days, and just cardio on the other.

I will also strive for more.

I can't wait for Fall when I can enjoy outdoor walks again!

I pledge to do at least 30 min. of cardio at least 3 days a week.

As weather permits, most of that will probably be bike riding. I like to go for at least one bike ride 5 days or more a week when the weather is nice. Sometimes I will go for one bike ride before work and one after work. That only lasts so long however. In the fall it starts getting dark far too early for me to continue my evening rides.

However, in August I expect to do a lot of bike riding.
When the weather is not so nice, I can do some indoor cardio. Step aerobics or a video. Maybe some WATP.

Let's step it up a gentle notch.

Can you commit to at least 30 min. of cardio at least 3 days for each of the coming 2 weeks?

If so, post here and make your pledge. How much cardio will you do these coming weeks?

Once again 3 lucky winners will win Spark Goodies.
