Let’s #WalkOnWalkStrong team! YOU GOT THIS <3
Day 9 and I did the suggested Stride and Strength 2 and Fusion Band from YouTube. I did them in my office (spare bedroom). However, I now have space to work. Before we moved I worked in my living room. Not so good as it is important to separate work from leisure. My cat came to join me. She sat on the futon looking out of the window.
Mauree and mholdsworth’s posts yesterday made me reflect and yes, I do need to hit the trails again. I have signed up for a walk/run tomorrow. It is 15km. I know the trail really well so if they leave me behind it’ll be okay.Will let you know how I get on. I am worried as the temperatures and humidity are still very high but I will listen to my body and see how I go.
mholdworth where you live sounds wonderful. Blue herons are gorgeous and I love to watch them. We have many birds who torment my cat through the window as they are nesting in our trees (sadly I don’t know the names of them yet) but we do have a pair of kites and I do so love watching them soar and glide.
I have to go as I have an appointment this morning and less than an hour to get ready and get down to the Ferry… which waits for no one.
mholdsworth sorry about your tooth. Sounds very very painful.
Mauree I hope you and your husband are feeling better now.
Jackie and Mauree I do enjoy reading about your love of hiking. The views you both described sound like heaven. We are blessed to be near many rivers of all kinds . Which means we have some lovely beaches and abundant wildlife. We see huge blue Herrons often . What beautiful birds. Sunday I did 15 minutes of yoga before work and that’s about it as I had a very full day of work .
today day 8- before work I did youtube dynamic stretch . After work 4 miles on the trail – talk about being in heaven!! It was breezy and the temp was almost perfect in the mid 70’s. I prefer running in 60 degrees and below. After dinner I did the recommended cardio ball blast. It was the first time with this one .It was so fun and I think it’s harder and more intense than have a ball. Which after doing the 4 miles earlier my legs were begging for mercy . hoping to to some yoga before bed. Unfortunately last week in the middle of all the craziness one of my back teeth shattered in half and now I’m in some pain . Thankfully I have a dentist appointment tomorrow after work and the topical ointment is helping some with the pain.
Thank you both for the well wishes .
mauree – sorry to hear about your cold . Hope you at able to get outside soon and enjoy the fall season .
Day 8 and I did the suggested Have a Ball and Cardio Ball Blast. I love my time in the morning with Jessica, and Debbie, Beth and Peanut. I actually spend more time with them than with my family as I am living overseas. It is so reassuring to know they will be there for a workout each day. Jessica’s bubbly personality makes me smile every morning and the amazing relationship she has with her mom takes me back to when I used to exercise regularly with my mum during my summers home.
I am thinking of enrolling on a Yoga class at our local community sports centre. It is cheap compared to the private classes so competition for places is sometimes fierce. Registration begins next Monday so I will get down to the sports centre and get in the queue and keep my fingers crossed.
Mauree I hope that you and your husband had a good Sunday together and that you are feeling better. How was your cookout?
mholdworth I hope that your mother in law is continuing to recover from her procedure and that you are well and got some rest.💪
Sounds like everyone is doing wonderful 😀
mholdsworth, I know what you mean about your trail runs my husband and I were out running errands a few weeks ago and he just suddenly went down a road we had never been down which led us out in the country surrounded by pine trees (pine trees and water are my thing) and he said he could literally watch my stress go away…something about nature. Jessica even has a walk and talk about what we can learn from nature, it is just great 🙂 Fantastic that your mother in law gave up smoking!!!!! She will see such improvement in her health even if she has smoked for years 🙂
JackieMc, speaking of nature, I meant to say last week that the Stride in Strength on You Tube made me think that it looked somewhat like what you get to see everyday…it looked very tropical to me 🙂 Will you be doing any fall hikes this year?
We are having great weather for hiking and the color is coming on but my husband and I can’t stay healthy long enough to enjoy it….I even have a ton of yard work to do but came down with what seems to be a 24-48 hour “cold” felt terrible but feeling better today.
Hope everyone has a great day:D
WEEK TWO: HAVE A LITTLE FUN!
n addition to your workout of the day, don’t forget to get your daily dose of vitamin W… WALKING! If you aren’t already there, try gradually working your way up to 10,000 steps a day (that’s the approximate equivalent of 5, 15-minute walk sessions throughout the day). Remember, you don’t have to tally up all of your steps in one single shot – in fact, research shows it may be even more beneficial to take several short walking breaks throughout the day!
If you need an indoor walking option, be sure to check out our “Walk On: 5 Fat Burning Miles,” “Walk On: 15 Minute Fast Fat Blasts and/or our walking playlist here on YouTube for some fun ways to add more steps to your day.
