Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where book lovers share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges.
Last week, I needed a big day to meet my goal of 1200 minutes in January — and, I did it! I walked 75 minutes and stretched for 15 minutes, giving me the 90 that I needed to reach my goal.
For February, I decided to go with 1200 minutes again, even though it’s a shorter month. I’m hoping some nice weather days will help me with some longer walks. Today will be one of those, but, tomorrow, we may have snow!
In January, I tried a goal of “strength-training or stretching every day.” That worked most of the month but I broke my streak on the 22nd and that killed my motivation for the rest of the month. So, for February, I’m going to try a goal of “strength-training or stretching for at least 20 days.” We’ll see if that works better for me.
How is your exercise going?
