Welcome to this week’s Readers’ Workouts where bookish people engage in athletic pursuits! Join us each week to report on the previous week’s exercise and to set goals for the coming week. If you’re recording your exercise on a blog, leave a link in the Mister Linky below. Or, you can participate in the comments.
Sheila challenged the Readers’ Workout participants in her post last week: Body Works and Biking. Her challenge was to try something new. I took her up on that, pledging to walk to the train station and back. And I did it on Thursday! Fun walk. I had no idea how long it would take, but I knew that my neighbor did it so it wasn’t an impossible distance. I chose a perfect weather day and it took me about 95 minutes. I’m looking forward to doing it again!
If I work out about an hour a day the rest of the month, I’ll meet my goal of exercising 1400 minutes in April. It’s been a struggle getting motivated recently, so I’m glad I’m near the end of the month. I really want to meet my goal and I know I can — that will help motivate my exercise each day.
My other goal this month was 15 full body workouts using my DVDs and I’m on track for that one — so yay! I seem to be more motivated by that because I really don’t want to have to do them two days in a row or more, so I’m making it a high priority to stay on top of it as much as possible.
My video workouts improved this week with new headphones. As you can see from the photo, they are much smaller and lighter than the old ones. I always felt a little ridiculous doing things like yoga in those giant headphones, but they were what I had. The best part, though, are that the new headphones are Bluetooth. I’m no longer tethered to my computer by a cable. I can’t wait to do my hula DVD without having to worry about the cord wrapping around me during the turns.
How is your exercise going this week?
