Mileage Monday

November 18, 2013 Leave a comment

Feeling a lot less sluggish than I was last week. I am glad I took last weekend off from exercise. I am also taking today (Sunday) off. It’s important to take days off every now and then or it can you can get run down. Haven’t made up my workout schedule for the week yet, but it might just be random. I am planning on strength training Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but cardio might just be whatever I do and whenever I do it. My niece (“K”) is down this week, and we’re planning on a bike ride Monday through Friday. Might squeeze in something else during the week.

Here are some more pictures from the virtual walk site. Since last week’s post, I’ve passed through Vincent, KY in Owsley county. I have about 38 miles until I reach Irvine, KY in Lee county.

Mile 692.8 (elliptical for 1 mile)                           Mile 696 (watp for 3.1 miles)

692.8 Elliptical for 1             696 Leslie for 3.1

Mile 697 (elliptical for 1 mile)                              Mile 698 (elliptical for 1 mile)

Hmmmm. my miles seem to be off. Oh well. Not sure what happened. I must have had a brain fart along the way when I was organizing the pictures. Pretty area of the country still! A little more than 700 miles in, and the trees are still green.

I’m getting close to getting caught up on the pictures. I have one left (from Saturday). Have a great week, and keep moving!

Still going strong with the virtual walk. I’ve been feeling a bit sluggish for the last several days, but I make sure to keep moving. Took the weekend off from exercise, and that helped a bit. Back at it today though. Since my last Mileage Monday post, I’ve passed through Booneville, KY in Owsley county. I have about 3.5 miles until I reach Vincent, KY. Should get there tomorrow with the five mile Leslie Sansone I have scheduled. Here are more pictures from the site.

Mileage Monday

November 4, 2013 Leave a comment

Back to regular Mileage Monday postings. For now, I plan on only including mileage from the elliptical and walk at home DVDs and videos (Leslie Sansone). For now I won’t include the miles I achieve with my adult trike. I may change my mind eventually. The virtual walk does allow for mileage from biking as well as swimming. For now though, I won’t include that. That may change soon though depending on my mood. I also won’t include any miles I rack up just marching in place as I watch TV shows or my YouTube subscriptions. I have no idea how many miles I get from doing that. I like being accurate in my mileage, so if I’m not sure it will drive me nuts.

On to some of the mileage pictures I’ve had saved for a while.

Mile 665 (watp for 3.1 miles)                          Mile 667.4 (watp for 2 miles, elliptical for .5 mile)

665 Leslie Sansone for 3.1                  667.4 Leslie for 2 Elliptical for .5

Mile 670 (watp for 3.1 miles                              Mile 672.6 (watp for 1 mile, elliptical for 1 mile)

670 Leslie for 3.1                  672.6 Leslie for 1 Elliptical for 1

Mile 675.6 (watp for 3.1 miles)                               Mile 680.6 (watp for 5 miles)

675.6 Leslie for 3.1                 680.6 Leslie for 5

Keep moving!!!

Mileage Mondays Are Back

October 21, 2013 Leave a comment

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Mileage Monday post. With Leslie Sansone’s October challenge, I’ve been posting the week’s schedule on Monday mornings. This week however, she posted it early enough on Sunday I decided to bring back the Monday posts.

On my last Mileage Monday post it wasn’t much of a post, since my computer decided to have a brain fart. I had to reinstall Windows 8, and I lost just about everything I didn’t have backed up to “the cloud”. The pictures from the virtual walk site were among the casualties.

Good news! I was able to retrieve them from the web site! There is a way to enter in a specific mileage point on the walk to bring up that mile’s picture. So, I went through the SparkPeople’s  Virtual Walk/Run Challenge team’s (I help co-lead this team) Where Are You now? thread to get my mileage points that I was missing.

Right now, I have about two week’s worth of pictures to get uploaded. So let’s get started.

Mile 653.8 (watp for 4 miles)                                  Mile 654.8 (elliptical for 1 mile)

653.8 Leslie for 4                  654.8 Elliptical for 1

Mile 655.8 (elliptical for 1 mile)                                Mile 657.8 (watp for 2 miles)

655.8 Elliptical for 1                  657.8 Leslie for 2

Mile 659.8 (watp for 1 mile/elliptical for 1 mile)       Mile 661.8 (watp for 2 miles)

659.8 Leslie for 1 Elliptical for 1                  661.8 Leslie for 2

Since my last Mileage Monday post, I’ve passed through Chavies, KY in Perry county, and Buckhorn, KY in Breathitt County. I have about 17.4 miles until I reach Booneville, KY in Breathitt county.

Have a great week, and keep moving!

Leslie Sansone’s October Challenge: Week Four

Hey hey! Leslie Sansone has this week’s schedule up already. Good deal. Only ten days left of this challenge, Time flies when you’ve got daily assignments. I think I may plan my weeks from now on. I usually just play it by ear. During this October challenge, I’ve been adding all of the workouts to my calendar, so every morning I have an email sitting in my inbox yelling at me until I get it done.

Week four looks like it’s right up my alley. I may add in my elliptical on one or two of the “strength training only” days though. I want to keep that up. Looks like I’ll be doing the 5K With A Twist dvd a lot this week. Fine by me, that’s my favorite DVD. I did that a lot last week also.

Here’s the plan for this week.

Monday, October 21 – Full body strength training only.

Tuesday, October 22 – 3 miles.

Wednesday, October 23 – Full body strength training only.

Thursday, October 24 – 3 miles.

Friday, October 25 – Full body strength training only.

Saturday, October 26 – 3 miles.

Sunday, October 27 – Full body strength training only.

There you have it. Week four. She gives some suggestions on her blog about which dvds to do 5K With A Twist being one of them. I can’t recommend that particular dvd enough. I absolutely love it.

Have a great week, and keep moving!!

Leslie Sansone’s October Challenge: Week Three Schedule

5K With A Twist

I need to get my butt in gear. I took multiple days off last week again. Excuse after excuse after excuse. So, this week, I will be doing my best to get in a daily workout. I can at least get in one of Leslie’s miles. It is only 15 minutes to do one of her miles after all. No excuses!

So we’re on to week three already. This week is the same thing every day, and totally up to you as to what you want to do. We’ll be doing at least two miles every day, and then we have the option to a “bonus” activity, which means strength training. So you can do two miles one day plus upper body work, or you can choose to do three miles and do no strength training.

Check out Leslie Sansone’s full blog post for more details. Here’s my plan for this week.

Monday, October 14 – 3 miles

Tuesday, October 15 – 2 miles and full body strength

Wednesday, October 16 – 3 miles

Thursday, October 17 – 2 miles and full body strength

Friday, October 18 – 3 miles

Saturday, October 19 – 1 or 2 miles or a bike ride depending on what we’re doing that day. May be a chiropractic morning.

Sunday, October 20 – 1 or 2 miles or a bike ride depending on what’s going on that day.

I am getting back into my strength training slowly. My left arm is finally starting to feel a bit better. I pulled a muscle somehow a while ago, and it’s been giving me issues since. Stretching it helps a lot though.

So a full week of activity is planned. And I will be sticking to it! No excuses! Keep moving everyone.

Leslie Sansone’s October Challenge: Week Two Schedule

5K With A Twist

Well, week one went OK. I missed two days though, oops. Oh well, on to week two. I don’t plan on missing days this week. I weigh in every Monday morning, and this morning I was down one pound. I actually checked it three times, because I wasn’t sure if the scale was flat on the floor. But the needle was down one tick (yep, a needle scale, still thinking about the FitBit Aria scale).

So, the week two schedule has been posted. Here we go.

Monday, October 7 – 2 (or 3) miles.

Tuesday, October 8 – Full body strength (see the bottom of her blog post).

Wednesday, October 9 – 2 (or 3) miles.

Thursday, October 10 – Full body strength.

Friday, October 11 – 2 (or 3) miles.

Saturday, October 12 – Full body strength.

Sunday, October 13 – 2 (or 3) miles.

There you have it. Two or three miles today. Totally up to everyone as to what they want to do. I’m thinking I may do one or two miles with a DVD and then a mile on the elliptical. No miles to be done Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday, but I may do a DVD anyway since I skipped a few days last week.

Keep moving everyone. I have some blog posts I want to put up this week. Still need to write them though. Will work on that today. Have a great week!
