Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, our weekly gathering of bookish folks doing active things. How was exercise for you in the past week? What are your plans for the coming week?

My first HIIT workout last week was a hit. Heh. I probably didn’t push as hard as I could have, but that’s the beauty of a treadmill workout — everything is measurable. I took notes, so I can bump up the intensity a little every time until it feels right. I’d rather under-exercise with a plan for gradual increase than over-do it the first time and abandon the effort before I’ve really started.
Edited to add: You all might be interested in my article that just went live on Huffington Post: A Librarian’s Tips For A Healthy Heart.
How are you doing with exercise right now?
