Readers’ Workouts — December 9
Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where book lovers share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges.
I’m off to a mixed start on my exercise in December — a bit behind on my minutes, but a bit ahead on the number of strength-training workouts. I’m feeling confident that I can catch up this week. We have a couple of social engagements, but I’ll be able to exercise around those.
Is your December proving to be a busy month? How are you fitting exercise in?

After the hustle of November, December always seems quieter. I’ve not got out of the habit of having all the Christmas stuff done by November to catch the (not non-existant) sea-shipping deadline to the UK, so that makes life easier.
I’m going to try the stair climbing again today, I way overdid it the first time and had aching calf muscles for a week. Sparring class last night was good, I fought someone I don’t usually fight and he left targets open I wasn’t expecting. It’s always nice to score points on a black belt!
It’s still crazy to believe that it is December! My workouts have been going pretty well, I’m starting to do more strength training, and I’ve been running at least a mile every day. I’m following a fitness plan right now and it’s been pretty easy working out either during lunch or right after work. On the weekends I tend to run in the evenings since I’m trying to do everything else during the day!
I’ve had a bit of a slow start to the month with all that has been going on, but yesterday I was plotting and scheming to get my race dates planned for next year as a way to stay motivated during these cold months.
Making plans for 2015 is a great way to motivate exercise now. I’m going to try that!
I think I went to the gym once this week and did some weights at home one day – not so hot. I got a new notebook, though, so hopefully writing things down will help.
I didn’t get my post done this week because we upgraded our internet speed and instead of taking a few hours it ended up taking 3 days. Grrr…..
I’ll be back next Tuesday with an update of how I’m doing.
