Readers-workouts-Joy-1

I’m posting a day late, but here are my steps for the week. Saturday really upped my average – but I was totally paying for it on Sunday and Monday.

steps

 

My current plan is to do cardio on Tuesday (60 mins), upper body on Wednesday, cardio on Thursday (60 mins), a total body workout on Friday, cardio on Saturday (60+ mins), and a core workout on Monday. I’m also trying to do a 10 minute-ish Pilates workout each day.

Tuesday – 60 mins elliptical, Walk with dog

Thursday – 25 mins elliptical, Walk with dog, 10 mins Pilates abs

Saturday – Half marathon, Dance class

Sunday – Walk with the dog, Fishing

Monday – 10 mins arms

Today's race, which I'm totally under- prepared for. Wish me luck.

My time for Saturday’s half-marathon was pretty bad: 2 hrs 412 mins. I should have done a better job training than I did and the heat didn’t help. But I finished and that’s what counts, at least for me. I like the long sleeve tech shirt they gave out this year.

Dance class was really fun. They’re holding it in our church basement and there were maybe 10 couples. We started with the waltz and then moved on to swing just a little. Ballroom dancing lessons was on my bucket list and I’m really enjoying it.

I usually listen to a book while I’m walking, jogging, whatever. This week I’m listening to A Great Reckoning by Louise Penny.
