First of October already - how the time flies!
I have settled on a new fitness plan for the month of October:
Cardio - intervals on the treadmill. No kind of official interval workout or anything, just doing my own thing. Making another attempt to get back to running. I tried Couch 2 5K last winter, and it just wasn't working for me. I managed to go from walking to running on the treadmill once before, just doing my own thing, so I'm going to go with that again.
Strength - I got my October Fitness magazine in the mail on Monday. It has an article about creating your own Boot Camp routine. The basics are 3 minutes of cardio + 1 upper body exercise + 1 lower body exercise + 1 ab exercise...Repeat.
I actually started this plan on Monday, which technically wasn't October...We'll call Monday & Tuesday trial runs. So far this week I'm 3 for 3 as far as coming home and doing my workout right away. Hopefully I can keep doing this if Husband doesn't get too cranky about having to wait for dinner (or maybe he could actually cook dinner...how crazy would that be?).
So Monday & today were cardio. Yesterday I tried out my Boot Camp workout. I am using the treadmill for my cardio portion; I thought it might be irritating jumping off and on the treadmill every 3 minutes, but I was willing to give it a go. I definitely worked up a sweat, and did not have a chance to get bored. What I do like about this idea is that it is fairly flexible. I can change things up as far as what exercises I'm doing, or how long the workout is. Hopefully it will work out.
I do reserve the right to swap out workouts now and then though. I am of the opinion that if I really can't face the scheduled workout-of-the-day (whichever it may be), I'm better of doing something different than doing nothing at all.
Things have been really busy at work this week. I'm finding that I get home, do my workout, get supper, and I'm not feeling much like being on the computer. So I'm not sure whether I will be posting every day - it may be less often from now on. Or maybe this will pass and things will get back to normal soon.
