Happy Hump Day to you all. It is Wednesday, May 20th. We are nearly 3 weeks into the 100 Mile May Movement Challenge, and it is time for an update from me.
This week I haven’t quite been the rock star on walking that I was last week. Here is my chart:
This past weekend there was a lot going on, and I wasn’t able to make it to the gym.Yesterday my schedule also got away from me after sleeping in. I know, EXCUSES! And you know how I feel about those!
So, with that in mind I was up promptly at 4:00am today, and have put in 5.00 miles on the treadmill. I have a normal day at work, with some time in for walking (I did get to have 1 mile at work yesterday, so I wasn’t a complete slug).
After work I am trying to connect with a friend to walk her neighborhood. Then, tonight will be the much-awaited first time for me going to Zumba!
This time tomorrow I will either be exhilarated or exhausted.Either way it should be a good time tonight.
How are you doing on your fitness this week? If you are working on the 100 Mile May Movement Challenge, then you should be at about 64.5 miles by the end of the day today. If you’re ahead of that, then accept my high 5. If you are behind it, also take a high 5 from me, and keep on moving.
I was talking to someone over the weekend who didn’t think she’d be able to accomplish the challenge. She is a couple of years older than I am, and is very active, but she knew that 100 miles would be tough. At the beginning of the month I told her to just do her best, and stretch herself a little. If that added up to 100 miles, then great. And if not, she’d have a lot of fun getting some exercise. Well, on Saturday, the 16th, she informed me that she was at 50 miles. That is half way there in half the month. I gave her a hug and told her how proud I was of her.
