Exercise Log 1
I started running last Monday. I am trying the Couch to 5K Running Plan. The nice thing is that it alternates running and walking, allowing an asthmatic like me time to catch her breath. I'm pretty proud of myself - I ran Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. I did the WiiFit for approx. 40 minutes of activity on Wednesday and today. That means Saturday was the only day I was NOT active. On Friday, I managed to not use my inhaler (a big deal when my allergies have kicked in!) and still make it through two miles in less than 30 minutes!
This morning I also did the test for the 200 Sit-Up Challenge. I've seen a lot about the 100 Push-up Challenge, but at the moment, I don't think it is a good idea. I have had some problems with tendinitis in the past, and it flared up last week in my wrist. Maybe after I can do the sit ups I will work on adding the pushups?
I'm hoping to do a condensed log like this every week. I post a daily update on my facebook as well as on a private discussion board. I am hoping that by making my efforts public, I can 1) stick with them! and 2) inspire someone else :)
