Book Blog Walkers is a challenge developed by Felicia @ Geeky Bloggers Book Blog – for details go check out her info page. I hope you’ll join us, it’s a lot of fun and a great way to motivate each other to get and stay moving!
Now that moving is finally over I’m getting back to a regular routine with my workouts. My apartment doesn’t have a fitness facility, so I’m taking my C25K outside. I think that’s best, since the 5k I’m doing in March will obviously be outside too. But I discovered that running outside is a little bit harder – on the joints and in general. So I quickly decided to restart the C25K outside (which I did on Wednesday) and to buy some new running shoes.
Thankfully I have more than 9 weeks before the 5K I signed up for, so I should still be ready for it. And hopefully the shoes will make it a little easier on the joints. I bought them Wednesday and will be officially trying them out for the first time today. Aren’t they nice? I did a bunch of research before picking them out, even though I went against what all the experts said and bought them on sale. Sorry, but I can’t afford the shoes they recommend. These have all the qualities I was supposed to be looking for (I think).
Besides that I just decided to have a little fun with my days in-between C25K days and played fitness games on the Kinect. I won’t be doing the Kinect Adventures again, because it wasn’t a good enough workout. But Dance Central is pretty great. I’m also thinking of checking out Zumba.
I also felt like I need to start doing some sort of toning, so I did some searching on Amazon Prime and discovered that Jillian Michaels has a Cowbell program on there (so free!). I don’t have a Cowbell, but she shows how to do it with a dumbbell which I do have, and it was a good workout. I’m considering getting a cowbell just the same, since I think it would make it a bit of a better workout – especially since my dumbbell is only 3 pounds and maybe a bit too light.
