Readers’ Workouts May 29 — 13 Comments

  1. Hi Joy,

    I linked it to my Mamaw’s Homeplace blog. I’m currently working on remodeling there and one of the features I plan to incorporate is a senior health category. I think this will fit nicely.

    I am currently trying to walk a mile a day somewhere. I don’t always make it but, on those days, I try to substitute some Yoga or strength training of some sort. I am a firm believer in the idea that any sort of active movement counts as exercise.

    Unfortunately, sooner or later “God laughs” and life interferes with my “plans” throwing me off track. Hopefully, being part of your group will pull me back to it when that happens.

    • Glad to have you! I think the key to good health is getting back on track after the inevitable derailment. A group to report progress, setbacks, and re-commitment is so helpful in those moments.

  2. Is it Tuesday already? Thanks for the twitter reminder to check in, Joy.

    Last week I only clocked in 281 minutes of exercise. I needed more days off than usual last week.. 90% of the time I just can’t exercise the first day of my period. So crampy! I’m 43 years old–you’d think after 30+ years of this, I’d be able to function through. Nope. Crampy, weepy, wimpy every lunar month. Boo.

    This week is off to a spectacular start though.. Yesterday I biked just under 60 miles with my cycling partner in just under 4 hours, so I’ve already got 236 minutes to my name! Yay!

    Happy exercising this week, ladies! End the month strong! 🙂

  4. Still walking a fine line between recovering from injury and getting moving again. I try to do something everyday. But would like to build up to a morning run (2mi) like I did every morning 30 years ago. First goal is to get a set schedule for the walk/run to make it a habit. My current job makes that difficult to predict.

  5. Hi Joy,
    Thanks for the push I needed to restart my exercise program. I really love how I feel when I exercise daily, but it is so easy to fall into bad habits. Might as well start again!! How do I get your logo on to my post? I couldn’t figure it out.

  6. It’s been hot in England. There isn’t a cloud in the sky which has been strange. I hate this kind of weather, it is way too hot for me so the fact I am out there running around at all is a completely bizarre act. I hear the weather is on the turn though… just in time for the Royal Jubilee celebrations!

    Well done to you – only 75 more minutes. You can squash that into one day and take the next few off!

  7. Last week went really well. So has this week, now that I’m thinking about it. I’ve been doing a lot of riding on my bike. I’m not getting tired as easily as I used to plus I see some definition in my legs. 🙂
