Jogged and walked the Muskie Days 5K. Time, a whopping 39.43! I started out intending to be a walker, but the walkers were getting ahead of me! Not wanting to come in dead last, I decided I would have to alternate jogging and walking in order to finish ahead of the walking pack. I beat some of them by 20 minutes, so I feel great about it. Well...except for the sore muscles!

After the 5K I helped do some raking in the yard, so I've gotten enough of a workout for today.

3 mile walk on trail.

50 crunches, arm exercises with 5# weights, stretches.

Now if I could just do this every day that I don't work at the deli, it might do some good! =0/

Walked 2 miles on the Heartland Trail. Collected a couple of flowers to press for a bookmark. Shhh, don't tell!

Hey! Only 3 months since I last exercised!

Walked 2 miles on trail. That's all I'm gonna say. We'll see if I do it again. =0I

I'm walkin'...

First 2 mile walk of the spring!
Took the loop around by Sather's and then back on the trail.
That taebo session aggravated an injury to my neck that I'd gotten the week before, so I've been doctoring for that and not daring to exercise. Walking shouldn't hurt, right?

taking a new tack...

The rebounder took me out of commission for several days. My calves were so sore I couldn't go up and down stairs and just hobbled around for days. SO, I'm thinking bouncing on a tramp isn't a very natural form of exercise! (How often do you do that in real life?)

Today I'm creating my own workout. I'm starting with 10 minutes on the stationery bike (while watching a 10 minute segment of Pride and Prejudice on You Tube).

Next, arm exercises using 5 lb. weights.

Shoulder raises-15 reps
Bicep curls-30 reps
Triceps-15 reps
Overhead press-20 reps

Then reverse crunches: 40 reps

This little 15 min. or so workout is certainly better than nothing, and hopefully I'll increase toward summer and be ready to start walking/jogging. At least, I hope to lose few pounds and firm up.

Tomorrow I will do my series of Pain Free excercises for flexibility (if I can find the book).

I'm back...again!

Wow, it's been two months since I've posted anything (or done anything)!

We ordered an Urban Rebounder and today I did the "First Timer" workout, which is about 10 minutes long and just gets you used to working out on the rebounder.

I did it barefooted today, but I'll try it with shoes tomorrow. Really works the feet and calves, but I noticed a little torsion on my left knee and I don't HAVE knee problems. Maybe shoes will help stabilize that.
