Readers’ Workouts August 21
Welcome to Readers’ Workouts! Each Tuesday, bookish people report their athletic pursuits. Link your post below or tell your story in the comments. Don’t forget to visit the links for encouragement and support!
This weekly reporting mechanism is working really well for me. I’ve been setting goals in the form of minutes per month for several years. Lots of times, though, I did a lot of catch up minutes in the last few days of the month. Now, I’m more motivated to report each week that I’m on track. I didn’t strive for this — it just kind of happened. But I’m thrilled that my consistency has improved. I’m much less likely to miss a day and, when I do, I make up the time more quickly. So, thanks, y’all for playing along with me!
I’m right on track with both of my goals in August — I’ve done 9 of 15 Wii workouts and 920 of 1400 minutes of exercise. How are you doing with exercise?
After a 2 month hiatus for physical therapy, I’m back at my 2.5 hours a week level of karate, picking up the third hour next week when I go back to sparring class. Hopefully I can test for 3rd degree brown belt this year, we’re in the review stage now.
And I am hopelessly mired in Game of Thrones books. I was warned and I didn’t listen and I’m partway through book 3.
So far I’ve resisted the allure of Game of Thrones — but your comment is the second time in two days that I’ve been tempted! My resistance may not hold out much longer.
Yay for getting back to your karate! Working toward the brown belt would be very exciting!
I agree; it’s been great to have a weekly report to stay consistent and hold myself accountable. Thanks for hosting this! I have nothing to report except that I haven’t done any running in eight days again because of an injury. SIGH! 🙁
I hope you’re feeling better soon!
Thanks for encouraging me to share my post! I am just getting the bug to start blogging a few times a week again, now that life is settling back in some sense of normal (no travel/company/parties to plan). 🙂
Thank you, Joy, for providing this very encouraging meme.
