I missed another week’s rundown! But nothing exciting happened that week except it was warm enough to take Daisy for an outside walk. This past week was a little busier, with more and more burpees and a trip north on Saturday. My knees have been a little achy, and I blame the cold!
Monday: Treadmill run for 2.6 miles in 23 minutes. I did a .20 warm up and cool down on either side of the run. I never used to do that, especially if I was active before the run. But I think it helps my knees, so I have been trying to be better about adding it in. I finished off with 18 burpees, a 30 second plank and 6 minutes of stretching.
Tuesday: off! An easy day and only 1 burpee required 🙂
Wednesday: I hopped on the treadmill before work for a brisk walk. I have been trying to get more walks in to save my knees. I am aiming for fast miles, and I worked my way up to 4.7 MPH for a 13:35 mile. Followed, of course, by 2 burpees.
Thursday: Pretty much off. I had planned for weights and yoga, but life did not comply. I did manage 11 minutes of relaxing yoga (necessary after the long day) after finishing 24 burpees.
Friday: I had to go town for an appointment for my husband, then planned to go back for errands. I didn’t want to be worrying about getting my exercise in, so I snuck a quick workout first thing. I did pretty much the same as I did on Monday–warmup, 2 miles and a cool down. And, of course, the perpetual burpees–26. But no push up, it felt like I was cheating! I did just “regular” burpees without the push up, although to me burpees with a push up are the regular ones. But my shoulders objected, and I decided it was better to do any burpee than not be able to do them after pushing too hard.
Saturday: We went snowmobiling bit further north in Maine. It was a lovely day. I did walk a quick mile (I’m improving, 13:13 this time) on the treadmill before leaving, just so I felt I got something done. I also broke my burpees into 2 sections to make life easier, with 13 before the walk and 13 after. Still no push up, didn’t want to stress my upper body before fighting with the snowmobile all day. We rode out several hours to a restaurant for lunch and then back. The ride took about 5 hours, then we had to drive home!
Sunshine was gorgeous, and the trail was perfect.
Sunday: Fortunately, another 1 burpee day. And a bit of rejuvenating yoga. Followed by a nap!
