Here’s my plan, more or less.
Since last check-in, I finished Week 2 and am starting Week 3.
Tuesday I did 30 minutes of Yoga and took the dog for a mile walk. Wow, the yoga made my inner-thighs sore. It’s been a while since I’ve done it. Wednesday I was supposed to do 30 minutes of cross-training, but I must have read the plan wrong before I went to the gym. I ended up doing 60 easy minutes on the elliptical on the “hills” setting. Thursday I ran 2.3 miles and took the dog for a mile walk. We also went fishing, but the only exercise to that is walking up the hill from the parking lot and down the trail to the lake.
Saturday I ran in the Debbie Green 5K in Wheeling. My time was 32:41, 19 out of 36 in my class. You can tell I forgot to “finish” my workout on my watch right at the finish line. Not a great time but at least it wasn’t raining. I think I need to work on running a bit quicker, maybe try to push myself on the shorter runs.
Yesterday I ran for three miles then did some stretching. I also did a short dumbbell arm workout.

Today, Joy asked how we deal with resistance to exercise, that “I don’t wanna” feeling. For me, I need a goal, otherwise it’s too easy to just let things go. And I know myself well enough to not expect to feel like exercising in the morning. If I have to I can, but it sucks every time.
