June Fitness Challenge: Week 3 Check-in – life+running

June Fitness Challenge: Week 3 Check-in

June Fitness Challenge: Reset my Workout Habits

This month I aim to:

  1. Add three 20-minute sessions of vigorous cardio once a week (running, biking, other heart-pumping activities).
  2. Strength train two times a week. Each session should include six exercises. I don’t remember where I read the rule of thumb as six different exercises, but this rule has proven its worth to me, so I’m keeping it.
  3. Do 15 minutes of yoga each week. Ideally, add a few moves after the vigorous cardio.

Here’s what I did each day.

June 15

  • Walked for 60 minutes over lunch.
  • Walked for 60 minutes after work

June 16

  • Walked for 30 minutes over lunch
  • Walked for 60 minutes after work

June 17

  • Ran 20 minutes
  • Strength trained (shoulders, biceps, legs)
  • Yoga (sun salutations)

June 18

  • Walked for 90 minutes

June 19

  • Unexpected rest day due to allergic reaction. This time: Onions! I thought I had them back (even had raw onion last week), but I guess only in small doses. We put red onions in a stir fry that calls for a lot of onions (normally we do shallots) and they made me sick.

June 20

  • Ran 20 mins
  • Strength trained (lats, biceps, hammies, quads)

June 21—(today’s plan to finish this week’s goal!)

  • Stair stepper 20 mins
  • Strength train
  • Yoga for 10 mins

What to work on next week

YOGA. I still can’t seem to find a way to make myself do it, and it’s ridiculous because yoga’s so good for me physically and mentally. I get absolutely no enjoyment out of it. I need to find a way to inch it into my routine so it becomes that—part of my routine.

 Love on ya, chimes
