#FitReaders: January 2nd 2015 Check-In


My first check in for #Fitreaders! Yes, I started on January 1st so only two days to report. A couple of goals I have are to increase my endurance for running, run a race, drink more water, and get some strength into my muscles. For running I plan to run a certain length - starting with a mile - and increasing it by 0.250 when I believe I have reached the time I want for that running duration. 

Thurs/Jan. 1st:
1 mi. walk/run - 17 min. 28 sec.
21 min. walk
56 oz of water
Thoughts: The 20 min workout and walk/run kicked my bum! I'm going to keep on with the mile and workout until I'm satisfied. Remember to stretch after next time!

Fri/Jan. 2nd:
1 mi. walk/run - 16 min. 16 sec.
60 oz of water EDIT: 68 oz
Thoughts: I know it doesn't seem like a lot but I'm like always resting between workouts and videos. I take forever! As things get easier I'm sure I'll push through better. And hey, at least I'm trying. I'm already sore from these two days. I'm making sure I'm only doing what I can to the best of my ability so I don't go overboard but I'm still going to be sore I'm sure. Lower back workout might have worked too well... Need to do back exercises more sparingly maybe. I feel like I'm going to regret all the squats I did. At least I remembered to stretch!

  1. I always forget or avoid stretching yet I know I shouldn't. Nice going - don't get too sore!

  3. Great start!!! I always forget about stretching and sometimes I end up paying for it! I try to do yoga at least 2 times a week - at least I get some stretching and strength-building through that!!!

    1. I feel like yoga is super intense though. I wouldn't know where to start but good for you. I'm sure it makes other exercises more achievable if you are able to keep pose for so long and have some good flexibility.

    1. I only can do quick workouts lol. I'm sure I'll be able to do just one longer one with my running but for now I'm able to strengthen all the parts of my body in these quick workouts.

    1. I don't go to the gym myself. I might have to if I ever up my strength goals. Yeah, VERY slow prgress but I'm okay with it. I always knew I had the worst endurance ever.
