Readers’ Workouts July 31 — 11 Comments

  1. I thought the Opening Ceremony was fabulous. As a history teacher I loved how the change from an agrarian society to an industrial society was portrayed. I have to figure out a way to use it in my classroom, but I think it’s copyrighted.
    Great job in hitting your goal. Look out August.

  2. Great job at meeting your July goal.
    I loved the Opening Ceremony especially the change from an agrarian society to an industrial society.

    • We watched the synchronized diving — I really expected to watch a couple of minutes before fast forwarding to something else, but we got all caught up in it!

      I’m looking forward to synchronized swimming next week.

  3. I love this idea, Joy! My workout goal is 3 1-hour gym sessions a week, with the option to swap out one of those sessions (or add on in addition to those sessions) with a drop-in dance class.

    • Welcome! Those are terrific goals — I like having a back up plan like a workout to swap in if something else isn’t working for me that day.

  4. Congratulations on meeting your goal Joy!
    I haven’t watched any of the Olympics but it definitely does get one motivated to exercise just a little bit harder. After my milestone run yesterday I called myself an Olympian in my own mind 🙂

  5. Wouldn’t a trip to London be fabulous! To run the marathon course, the bike race, anything… I’m watching water rafting right now… that would be fun to try too.

    I will finish my third month in a row with 200+ miles… running/jogging/walking. With my hip injury I have come to terms with ‘as long as I’m out there, who cares if I’m walking or running’.

    Congratulations for meeting your July goal!

    • 200+ miles a month, done consistently, is definitely a great way to stay in shape. I’m so glad that you’ve found something that’s working for you.

  6. Yay for the Olympic spirit! Well done and hope you enjoy your new Wii Fit game. I’d love a Wii fit but with no room I’d probably end up punching the TV by accident.

    I’ve been watching the fencing, archery and admiring the male gymnasts…… bronze medal of course.
