Right now I think it’s one of those times where having something to focus on and distract yourself is very important. I have found two things, exercise and writing. I think that’s what’s keeping me sane right now with all these horrible Covid19 news. I don’t write about Covid anymore like I did in the … Continue reading Exercising to stay sane
This Saturday has been very unlike the rest of my most recent Saturdays. But let go back earlier this week. On Thursday, after work, I stayed behind with my mom to exercise with another of our coworkers. We were each doing our own thing, I was running with music when I got a notification that … Continue reading Second Virtual 5k
I feel like I’m really getting into this whole exercising thing. I think I’m starting to see results and I don’t know how to explain it but I feel good. Even now, I’m tired from today’s workout but it’s like a good tired, if that makes any sense at all. Today I followed exactly the … Continue reading I didn’t know I had that much energy
Even though Thursday is usually the hardest day of the week at work for me, I’ve completed my second week of running with my coworkers after work on a Thursday. I thought it was going to be easier this week because I already knew what I was getting myself into and because I have been … Continue reading Running on Thursdays
I couldn’t wait to start exercising this morning mostly because it was a great distraction from the news and thinking about the election results. I started quickly after breakfast. I didn’t want to look at any news or updates on social media and exercising is a good way to get your mind and attention off … Continue reading Exercise to distract myself
After work today, a few of us stayed behind to exercise. It was a nice change from exercising in my apartment. We started walking or running around the parking lot, each at our own pace. After a while we took a lap outside, around the building. It was a little scary because there were a … Continue reading Workout at work
Today was one of those days I talked about yesterday, a day I had a lot of time to do anything I wanted in the morning. So to make up for the short 30 minute walk last night I wanted to do more today. I began with another walk, that turned into running too, that … Continue reading Walk, run and cycle first thing in the morning
I wasn’t sure if this was going to work but week one of blogging after I exercise was a success so here I go again. It pushed me to exercise six days of the week which is way better than what I can usually do when I get lazy. After seeing how well last week … Continue reading Just started week 2
Exercising in the morning is the best. This forces you to wake up and then you can just rest when you come home from work. This morning I finished working out before I had lunch and before I went to work, so now that I’m tired I don’t have anything to worry about, I can’t … Continue reading Morning workout
Today was the day I had been looking forward to for weeks. I had been training and I thought I was ready but I didn’t count on one thing, a very small detail. We were starting at 6 so I had to get up between 5 and 5:15 am. I was still half asleep as … Continue reading Finished the virtual 5CAP!
After resting yesterday, I want back to trying to complete the three miles today. Today I tried something new; I have been trying something different almost everyday. I decided I wanted to do something different for each mile today, so three different exercises. First I walked/ran on the treadmill. Here I did one mile in … Continue reading Almost three miles
I did it, I walked for three miles in less than an hour! Well, it was 56 minutes and 44 seconds and that’s less than 60 minutes even if just 3 minutes and 56 seconds less. Today I also walked at home but I didn’t use the treadmill, I did walking videos on YouTube. Each … Continue reading Three miles in less than an hour
Today I decided to start getting ready for the 5k I signed up for last week. This means walking for a lot longer than just thirty minutes which is what I usually do. It took me 113 minutes to walk 3.33 miles on the treadmill. That’s too much; last time I did a 5k I … Continue reading Getting ready for the 5k
I just finished walking and running for an hour on my treadmill. Well, it was more like walking for 57 minutes and running for three, but whatever, I walked for an hour. As I walked for the last few minutes, even though I was tired of walking, I was happy. I thought there must be … Continue reading So that’s why I’m happy
Remember that treadmill I mentioned not that long ago that we wanted? Well, my mom and I found it yesterday. We walked into Sam's Club and there it was waiting for us; it was exactly what we wanted, a good price, small and foldable and a well known brand. I even looked it up on … Continue reading We got the treadmill!
