Recap–the (almost) 14 day fitness challenge

Whelp, it has been 14 days since I proposed the 14 day fitness challenge and made it my goal to exercise every day for 14 days straight (including the Thanksgiving holiday).  The first 7 days went as planned and I exercised each day.  Boo.  Ya.

Here’s how the second half of the challenge stacked up:

Day #8:  Power Pump class at the YMCA

Day #9:  Woke up with knee pain, so I decided NOT to exercise.

Day #10:  15 minutes on the elliptical, 1 hour of strength training & free weights

Day #11:  Turkey Trot!  5 miles in 43:48!!

Day #12:  30 minutes on the elliptical

Day #13:  3 Mile Leslie Sansone walking video with my mom

Day #14:  Stuck in traffic on the drive home from Ohio and got home 2 hours late – AKA no exercise.

So the 14 days fitness challenge was more like the 12 out of 14 day challenge.  Even though I missed the challenge goal, I’m happy with what I was able to accomplish.  First off, I listened to my body and decided not to run when my knee was bothering me.  This is HUGE for me.  Normally I am stubborn (and stupid) and try to run despite pains, which is exactly how I hurt myself two summers back.  Second, I EXERCISED ON THANKSGIVING. Insane!!!

The Turkey Trot was the first race I have run in, and I’m already searching for my next race.

Half marathon here I come!!!!
