    Challenge Retrospective: Goal #1: Ease back into Strength training - 100%+ I said I wanted to do at least 2x per week, I did that every week and most weeks I got 3 Goal #2: Ease back into Running - 100% Started off slow, just hitting my 2x per week goal, because I still needed to be careful, but I've gotten back into a 3x per week cadence now that I can build on. Didn't run 5k but I'm pretty sure I could. Goal #2: Monitor weight - 80% I had a couple days where I spiked into my caution zone, but generally I stayed stable, perhaps slightly down overall

    Got in my 3 runs and 3 strength workouts this week I haven't yet run 5k (furthest was a bit over 4), but I feel like I definitely could, and probably I will next weekend; on Friday I got a 3km run in and then a few hours later walked 6-7km or so. It's my first week back at the gym so I've really been figuring out where I'm at. Program calls for Kettlebell Romanian Deadlifts but I had to switch to bar because the biggest kettlebell (35lbs) wasn't doing it for me.

    Currently doing good with 2 runs and 2 strength workouts down, with a decent amount of walking thrown in - and those 2 strength were back in the gym for the first time in about 6 weeks My April running total currently exceeds Feb + March, and won't be long before I've done more this month than the rest of the year.
  4. As long as you keep on trying to get into first gear you're getting somewhere!
  5. I can't say I specifically recall Brad Pitt dancing like an idiot (as a "Hardbodies" employee), but I love Burn After Reading - kinda a slow build at first but so worth it in the end

    Got in that strength workout though I did it at home, and then did over 3km of walking to do an errand Only got 2 days this week with no sweets.

    Did a 35 minute run/walk today, over 4km, and signed up for a 5km race in 4 weeks. I plan to go to the gym tomorrow for a 3rd strength workout. Looks like I somehow managed to do 11km of running in both Jan and Feb (and even less in March), and that's where I'm sitting right now for April I have some extra days off around Easter so next week I want to get 3 runs and 3 strength.

    On track - Monday and Wednesday I did strength, and I got out for a 20 minute run/walk today, just shy of 3km, even though it was lightly raining. I plan to get out for a 30-35 minute run/walk on the weekend. I earned my 20 mile badge on Smashrun, which I've been using since the beginning of the year. I had no sweets on Tuesday and today should be another sweet free day. Weight has backed down from it's spike towards warning territory.

    Success on the exercise this week - 3 strength, 2 runs, and 2 days with extra walking. My 2nd run was 1m run, 30s walk again, for about 25 minutes, I covered just over 3km. My weight poked above 156 one day (not consistent, but, the trendline is nudging slightly up), and I have definitely been eating too many sweets - I have been feeling stressed which tends to contribute to bad choices. To try and reign that in without going into full blown tracking, I am going to go 3 days per week without sweets.

    Well on track for week 2, I've done one strength, one run, and got in some extra walking today. I ran 1 minute walked 30s for a little over 20 minutes, that felt reasonably challenging so I'll do about the same next run but go to 25 minutes.

    Week 1 down! Strength workout #2 down on Saturday, everything I did felt fine Got a "real" run in today - I alternated 30s of running and 30s of walking for 15 minutes, plus a couple more minutes of walking at the begining and end, felt pretty good I'll bump it up a notch next time

    So this week so far: I did a walk at lunch yesterday. Today I did what I'll call my first walk/run - it was super short because it was cold and I wasn't wearing the right socks for it, but I ran a couple short segments and it felt good aside from my toes freezing. And my first real strength workout. 2 of the exercises bugged one of my incisions (which is still a little raw on the outside, I guess the dissolvable stitch was irritating it) so I'll leave those for a week before trying again.

    It's been a while since I've been around here but I thought the time was ripe to jump in on a challenge again! I think since I was last around here I gained some weight, but then I lost it thanks to gallbladder issues + surgery (yay nausea, loss of appetite, etc). At this point my objectives are to not gain back the weight I've lost and get back into regular exercise (I haven't been able to do more than walking and some gentle stretching and range of motion stuff for a month). #1 Ease back into strength training - follow the Girls Gone Strong beginner program, at least 2x per week
  14. Got out to the gym last night and lasted over 20 minutes on the treadmill after my strength. I am definitely not going to make my running goal, due in part to weather and partly to laziness. New goal is to at least beat what I did in January (So 26km or more!), I can do that with a solid run and a little bit more. I think one of the worst parts about treadmill running for me is I get really hot. The gym has a pool which makes the air pretty humid, while I am currently acclimated to cold & dry. There's no breeze in a gym; the treadmill has a fan that is so weak it may as well not be there
  15. Did STR on Sat and got out to Yoga for the first time in a while on Sunday
