Day 14 Exercise Challenge
Thursday, September 09, 2010
I haven't been providing updates, but I am keeping to my exercising everyday. I think this has has been one of the best things I've done so far on spark.
I ran a half marathon on Saturday. I ran with friends and we took our time, stopping for photos, stretching and a ridiculous number of bathroom breaks. Sunday it would have been so tempting to say that I was tired, sore, or had done enough the day before. But because I have this challenge, I did a yoga video. I was also back out running with a 3 mi run on Monday. The swimming plan is going well too. I'm on week two of 0-1650. This week, I'm progressing to 200m without taking a break.
I was having a hard time keeping track of which day I was on, so I started a spreadsheet (nerd!). And since I'm a complete data junkie, I can tell you that for the past 14 days I have exercised 705 minutes and the counter says I've burned 6650 calories. Consistency pays off.
