Last minute change in our walking route

Today, our new walking group bailed on us so my mom and I decided to pick our own walking route. We thought is would be better to walk outside, not in a parking lot so we went nearby to my grandparents neighborhood. It’s safe, it’s open and my mom knows her way around because she … Continue reading Last minute change in our walking route

Exercise to distract myself

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

Exercised and got the flu shot!

Today I got to my workout pretty early after I came home from work. I had to be done early because I was getting my flu shot so I started walking quickly after I finished my lunch. Now I realize that was a mistake and that’s probably why I didn’t want to walk. Because of … Continue reading Exercised and got the flu shot!

Tired but still walking

I was right, my legs hurt today after last night’s run but it wasn’t too much pain to stop me from walking. I’m tired but I’m still committed to exercising six times a week, even if it’s only for a little while. No running, cycling or videos today, I just walked. I was tired when … Continue reading Tired but still walking

Walk, run and cycle first thing in the morning

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

This is the best I can do today

I can’t expect to have a great workout everyday or for every week to be as successful as the last because that’s just not realistic. What I can do is do the best I can everyday. Some days that will mean an hour on the treadmill, workout videos and more time on the treadmill, while … Continue reading This is the best I can do today

Just started week 2

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

Finished the virtual 5CAP!

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!

Almost three miles

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

Three miles in less than an hour

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

Getting ready for the 5k

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

A day in San Juan

I thought our Sunday walk would not be that long today because we walked with Indy and Sandy yesterday and it looked like it was going to rain today. We first did the Paseo de la Princesa and El Morro walk, which seemed shorter today. Maybe it was because we had already done it, maybe … Continue reading A day in San Juan

So that’s why I’m happy

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

We got the treadmill!

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!
