Readers’ Workouts — July 30
Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where we share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges. Join us each Tuesday!
Marvelous weather here coaxed me into the yard over the weekend where I lunged, lifted, and hauled for hours. That’s put me back on track to meet my goal of 1500 minutes in July. Woohoo! I wasn’t at all sure I was going to make this month’s goal.
I was all prepared to set a lower, more realistic, goal for August, but on a wave of success, I’m going for 1500 minutes again.
How was your exercise in July? What do you have planned for August or for the coming week? Answer on your blog (feel free to grab the logo) and link to your post below or join us in the comments! Be sure to visit the other participants to see how we all did.
My exercise had some highs and lows. I accomplished something I don’t remember ever doing before but I also hurt my knee at one point and had to ease off to let the pain subside. As a result, more pain went away than just behind my knee so I have been trying to reintroduce exercises but not reinjure my knee. So far I know that using my recumbent bike is a source of pain and problem which is disheartening. After all, read any article on safe cardio machines for people with knee problems and bikes are on every list. I, obviously, am the exception to that rule. But I’m pain free now, again, and I need (no pun intended) to keep exploring. This week I’ll be reintroducing Pilates. We’ll see how it goes. And I have a personal fitness challenge I’ll be doing next month. I’ll blog about it for next week’s RW.
I had a problem with recumbent bikes for awhile. They caused a pain in the back of my knee. Moving the seat a little closer to the pedals helped — I think I was hyper-extending the tendons with every stroke.
I’m doing a zombie run on Saturday.
I seem to have lost a bit of my mojo lately and the heat has really gotten to me.
Heather – zombie runs sound sooo fun. I want to do one – my running group put something up about it but I dunno if there is a team or how many people were interested.
