Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where book lovers share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges.
I had an all-day business trip yesterday, but I managed 15 minutes of stretching when I got home. That felt good after spending the day in the car, but I really did it so that I could report that I didn’t miss a day of exercise. I’m on track, or close to it, for all my goals this month — 1300 minutes of exercise, 21 days with 8000 or more steps, and 8 strength-training sessions.
How is your exercise going in May?

Joy, at least you had that good stretch in after a long car ride. I try to stretch every morning while coffee is brewing. Sounds like you’re doing well with your steps
All of last week I did the stairs in work at least once a day, and it’s a little easier to get to the top without stopping now, all 7 floors with high ceilings. I’m trying to do them when I get to work, before breakfast, then later in the day.
I hate long car rides. Stretching afterwards probably felt wonderful.
That’s great that you’re doing so well on your goals.
With my leg long, and even short car rides sometimes, are rough on me.
I’ve not been doing a very good job with my stretching, chi-gong etc so that’s going to be my priority starting next month, after I’m done with my SparkPeople challenges.
That’s great! I’d really like to get to the point where I am exercising every day, too. I think I’ll have to start planning out my goals like it seems you’re doing. 🙂
I also hate long time rides in the car, so good you streched when you got home!
I’m doing quite well these days too: I’m tutoring a girl in a couple of subjects and she lives 3,5 K from my home, so I usually go by car, but yesterday I decided to go (and come back!) walking, so it was quite a workout in the end 🙂
I’m linking a review about a book that has blown my mind regarding exercise, because it talks about all the benefits that exercise brings to your brain, which is a subject I had never heard of.
Have a good rest of the week!
