Move Monday – Fitness Series

Move Monday

Sunday 25 September, 2016 was a recovery day. My knees and bum hurt so badly from the 10 km race. I am now 4704 minutes away from meeting my goal challenge of exercising 10950 minutes which is 30 minutes of exercise every day. I’m not sure if I’ll get there but I’ll keep trying. I already know I’m better than were I was this time last year.

Tuesday 27 September, 2016 I went for a walk and did about 1.9 km in 25 minutes and this brought me to 6271 minutes in total.

Wednesday 28 September 2016 I did 20 minutes of zumba that race took out of me more than I expected. The recovery was taking longer than expected. This brought me to a total of 6291 minutes.

Thursday 29 September 2016 Fitness test – This might have been a bad idea so soon after covering 19 km in one day. I had to stick to my schedule but I did some of the moves with caution. I did notice that there was some improvements.

Friday 28 September 2016 As usual my go to work out came in handy I managed to do 20 minutes of zumba just to get me moving. This came to a total of 6311 minutes.
