    Since I didn't have to work today, I walked with my 5:30 AM friends and then again with my 7 AM friends. 6 miles total before 8 AM! My family thinks I'm crazy for getting up so early on my day off, but it was so worth it! Yesterday DH and I got all the apples off the tree since it's supposed to rain today (first time in months!). I counted 10 minutes of that as exercise. Was sitting on the couch last night and noticed my hips were hurting. Figured cuz I'd been sitting there an entire hour! :faint: Then realized it was from all that bending over. DH got up on a ladder, took a hockey stick and knocked down the high ones! Now I have to sort them into ones for applesauce and ones to give to our friends with horses.

    Busy day; glad the exercise part is over!

    Great job, everyone!

    Kristin - Have a great trip! With how fit you have become and all the weight you have lost, I can't wait to hear how much more enjoyable this trip is for you. You are going to outwalk everyone you are with! :goodvibes

    Linda - Apple picking sounds like so much fun, but I know it's exhausting with all that bending and reaching.

    103 minutes of running (9 miles) this morning pre-dawn through a beautiful sunrise. It was a brisk 32 degress when I stepped out the front door. I', finding that I really like running in cold weather.

    Total for the month now stands at 653/1600

    Hoping the legs recover enough by 1PM to get in another taekwondo class today before a true rest day tomorrow.

    This morning was the first race of the season for the Special Olympics athletes I've been coaching. We did the Run/Walk for the Buds which benefits the Down Syndrome Association. It was the slowest 5k time I've ever had as I stayed with two of our walkers, but it was so much fun and it was a gorgeous morning!

    My new total is 830/1800

    2nd week total. 650 minutes!!!! And that was on vacation. :)

    I went to two Zumba classes, 3 water aerobics classes, hiked, walked 5+ miles and went horseback riding. Then on Friday I treated myself to a spa massage. :)

    What a great new way if life this is. I just booked our Disney cruise for next year and I'm already planning how to incorporate my workout. I'm seeing me running laps topside, on the treadmill overlooking the ocean, doing the Castaway Cay 5k, ooooooo and a spa treatment of course. Lol

    Congratulations! :thumbsup2

    I'm sure that is such a relief for you. Great job!

    I wasn't sure if you meant 650 is your new total or if you had that many additional minutes. If I don't have your total correct in the first post, please let me know. You work hard for those minutes!

    So glad you had an active vacation. I was feeling the same way in July - we were at an all-inclusive resort and I went to water aerobics classes and piloxing and we did so much walking at our cliffside resort because our suite was at the top of the cliff and the beach was many "levels" down. It was awesome to feel so active on vacation. Congrats!


    Great job, challengers!

    -------------
    As for me, I didn't add in the hours of dancing Saturday night at a concert, but it was great calorie-burning fun!

    This morning I did 45 minutes of strength training and 55 minutes on the elliptical, bringing me to 930/1800.
