30 Days Active Challenge Follow Up Report – Week 2

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Hey guys! The Hump Day is here!

Are you having a good week so far? I’m pretty excited to be back here with my Week 2 of the 30 Days Active challenge report.

This challenge to myself started with this post where I wrote a Tough Love Letter to myself following a session at FitBloggin’ 14.

And I’m happy to report that the challenge is going very well and I am staying active every day. Here’s how:

{WEDNESDAY}Β  last week was a yoga night! My legs were SORE from biking and running the week before, so yoga just felt super nice and relaxing.

I chose to walk to the Y instead of driving

{THURSDAY}Β  was HOT! Didn’t really feel like spending any time indoors though, so hubby and I went on a nice long walk together.

Sporting our Vibram Five Fingers (Stats on the right are for the day. Yeah, I know…I have a desk job)

Check out what we saw in one of the yards while walking:

Some people are amazingly creative!

{FRIDAY} was another run day – this time my husband decided to join me and train for a 5K too!

And that run marked the end of my Week 1 of 8 with Coach to 5K.

{SATURDAY} I did not feel the energy AT ALL.

All I could push myself to was a yoga class andΒ a few laps in the pool. But I did it! And that was it πŸ™‚

{SUNDAY} was another C25K Day

Hubby and I agreed to leave the house early in the morning (before the major heat kicked in) and go for a run. It was supposed to be the hottest day of the week, that’s why we wanted to get that run in early so we don’t have to suffer through it.

Well, Mr. H slept in and I waited for him patiently (because I am a good wife, you know). And then we suffered through it.

Not only was it miserably hot, but it was also the day in C25K when you switch to longer running sets.

That run was the worst of my life so far! I was drenched in sweat, breathless and a little dizzy when we got home. It took me a while to recover from that one…

The numbers above probably look funny to someone who runs regularly – nearly 14 minute miles… But I’m not sweating it. I’m getting there and working on it.

And I’m still lapping everybody on the couch πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

{MONDAY}Β  was a work day – I taught my regular Indoor Cycling Class at the Y.

It was raining outside, so I had 7 (!!!) people in my class – a record number for summer time πŸ™‚ It also so happened that the class mostly consisted of my regular riders and good friends (Mr. H attended, too!).

We had a BLAST! I felt such wonderful energy exchange and inspiration! Don’t forget to check out the latest playlist right hereΒ to get the feel of what it was like πŸ˜‰

{TUESDAY} was a weird day…

Mr. H and I were originally planning to go for another run with C25K, but he had to get up really early and leave, so we decided to re-schedule that run for Wednesday.

I had to do SOMETHING! I felt like peace and quiet. So I went upstairs, lit up some candles and did yoga.

And that was it, my friends!

  4. My favorite workout last week has been the stairs a Swallow Cliff. I wasn’t feeling exercise these past two weeks. Thinking about taking out the bike for a spin tomorrow morning with a client. #wowlinkup

  5. That sounds like a full week. My coach made me do doubles today b/c of my dietbet.com challenge and needless to say I was smoked today. Yoga does seem peaceful though. #wowlinkup

  6. Looks like you are doing well keeping active. I recently started an online martial arts program and that is working for me.

  7. I went to spin for the first time in a year yesterday morning. Holy cow that was hard! I’d rather go for a run! To each his own….

    • The more you do it, the easier it gets. Then you challenge yourself again and it gets harder πŸ™‚ And that’s how you get fit and strong.
      Good for you for going!
