Exercise Check-In for March, 2013
 
:welcome: Post anything about exercise and activity here.

We can just check in with a report of the day's workout,
Or give encouragement, ask for advice, tell about victories, offer tips and ideas.

We enjoyed a wonderful JUDDD exercise thread that ran more than a year until late in 2012, and spanned 47 pages :clap: so maybe it's time for shorter threads! I started to make this one a "spring" thread but many of our posters are in parts of the world entering autumn right now.

If a month seems too short a span, we can have one for several months next time - whatever works!

If you'd like to check back to what exercises you were posting during 2012 or late 2011, you can click here.

Thanks Whitlin'!

Saturday 3/2/13: Zumba in the morning, and rollerskating at the rink in the afternoon.

3/4/13: Zumba, night class scheduled.

LoCarbGal 03-04-2013 08:41 AM

Such a great idea, Whitlin'!

This morning I did an hour of Callanetics. Boy am I feeling it - my legs are all jello-y!

Thanks so much for restarting this thread. I need the accountability to get more exercise daily. Good point about it being different seasons worldwide. :doh:

My exercise plan this month is - I'm going to start doing more strength training 3 times weekly using Kelly Coffey-Meyer: 30 Minutes to Fitness dvds. The last couple of months I started using a 10 lb. kettle bell, but wound up injuring my shoulder from over use, so I think I need more variety. For my cardio & fat burning, I'll be sticking with a min. of 30 min. on my recumbent bike & elliptical machine 3 times a week. While concentrating more on doing high intensity interval workouts, rather than steady state.

Best Wishes!

Re-committed to exercising again in March after recuperating from an injury early January. Starting with some walking/jogging then hopefully getting back into weights and more strenuous workouts.

3.3 - 3 mile walk with weights workout

JMBM 03-04-2013 11:26 AM

Trying to do more daily deep cleaning and walking the dog regularly. Also grooming and riding my horses more often.

tobelowcarber 03-04-2013 02:09 PM

Cathe X-Train Legs and Rear Delts
30 min walk outside

MSN08 03-04-2013 02:15 PM

:hiya: 1 hour chest and back p90x workout, 16 minutes of ab ripper x and 45 minute pole workout. Exhausted!

Carly 03-04-2013 02:17 PM

My elliptical machine will be delivered on the 6th! So excited!

Lori_:) 03-04-2013 03:49 PM

5:45AM Boot Camp this morning. I try to do 4 days a week. I've been doing boot camp since the beginning of December. It is an awesome workout. Some days you don't think you're going to make it thru, but what a feeling of accomplishment when its done!

Lori
:cool:

Whitlin' 03-04-2013 04:37 PM

Wow, what a great variety of workouts.

I am a video workout kinda gal. With family needs the way they are, I manage best with something I can do on the spur of the moment without leaving the house.

T-Tapp mostly, but some Zumba. Also elliptical here at home sometimes. (Carly I think you will be happy. It was a sensible purchase for us.)

I'm on an every-day workout stretch right now (sometimes go back to longer workouts and take days off) and want to keep up every-day through March.

Yennie 03-04-2013 05:49 PM

Ug - I need to tone tone tone!!! I get my cardio with running & riding but my arms are a big flab fest. I need to get back on my yoga mat for more core strengthening (very important to have a strong core with the type of riding I do). I just hate it so much!
But I need to just do it already...excuses are like backsides...
Maybe this will be the motivation I need...
Not running for a few days to recover, then I'm starting up the Couch to 5K program in an attempt to rebuild the basics and get my times down. :)

Kismet311 03-04-2013 06:09 PM

Awesome thread! I just got a gym membership so hubby and I went last night and tonight. I did a combination of bike, treadmill and something called an air walker. It's like an elliptical but the arms dont' move. I didn't pay attention to how long Iwas there but I'll estimate.

3/3-Gym about 30 minutes (cardio)
3/4 Gym about 40 minutes (cardio + arm and chest machines)

SlowSure 03-05-2013 04:22 AM

3 March 60km recumbent exercise bike (40km at level 16)
4 March 70km ditto (50km at level 16: speed very slow but a PH DD)

I've got a couple of long-ish (for me) bike rides planned for Summer (100 mile events).

Normally I kayak at the weekend but won't be able to do that until late March so I need to find something as a substitute for my arms and core (tho' little gives me the sense of bliss as kayaking does).

Lori_:) 03-05-2013 05:04 AM

Killer boot camp that included many, many double suicides with lots of exercises in between and ended with straight arm planks with the trainer sitting on your back! OY!! Thank goodness I'm taking a day off tomorrow!

I think I'll make this (for me) like the daily weigh in thread, but with exercise.

Goal: Exercise 3 times per week

3/2/13 Zumba AM, Skating PM (-672 calories)
3/4/13 Zumba PM (-439 calories) Already hit 3 times this week, but planning more.

A marathon, Oh Wow! :up::clap:Good for you Babs:clap::jumpjoy:
I tried C25K for 7 weeks, knees started hurting :cry:and DH got mad :mad:as he said I'll end up with knee injury and won't even be able to walk! Now I stick to just very brisk walks with intermittent jogs here and there:)!

What race are you thinking about doing?
Its sold out this year but you should consider the 2014 SeaWheeze in Vancouver. Its only a 1/2 but it is rockin'! And there is some wicked swag, plus an awesome expo stocked by Lululemon who puts on the race. I ran last year - some issues with it being their first year, and I'm signed up again this year. I also just did the Hot Chocolate 15K in Seattle - another great one! Those are all over the US so there may be one close to you? Not sure where in Canada you are...
