Update: May Fitness Challenge (05/09-05/15)

May 9

  • 20 minutes of power-walking through a bunch of airports (my trajectory was SF => Pittsburg => DC => Lewisburg)
  • Running around with the cats on the farm + vacuuming (~10 minutes?)

May 10

  • 4×100 bridges
  • 5×2-min. Supermans
  • 5 minutes Tahitian practice

May 11

  • 30 minutes cleaning apartment/running errands

May 12

  • 1.5 hours (aka the time it took me to finish 300 practice questions) powerwalking on a treadmill at 7% incline

It’s finally beautiful outside, but I can’t run out there because (a) allergies and (b) I can’t concurrently study. :[ sigh!

May 13

  • 3×15 @ 95 barbell squats
  • 3×10 @ 150 leg press
  • 3×12 w/ 20’s dumbbell lunges
  • 3×10 @ 80 leg extensions
  • 3×20 BW squats
  • 3×10 hip ups
  • 3×20 quadruped hip extensions
  • 3×20 quadruped donkey kicks
  • 3×10 V-ups
  • 3×25 bicycles
  • 3×1-min planks
  • 3×20 @ 20 Russian twists
  • (The above took about an hour.)
  • 15 min. powerwalking on treadmill at 5% incline
  • 10 min. walk outside (running errands at different buildings on campus/outside my apartment)

This was on the way to my mailbox. :O

May 14

  • 25 min. powerwalking on treadmill @ 6% incline
  • 25 min. stationary cycling @ 6% resistance
  • 20 min. ellipticals @5% resistance
  • 20 min. running errands/walking around outside

So…I have excitingly abrupt news. I’m moving out of my apartment in about 2 weeks. It was an impromptu decision that was basically made…today. There’s nothing at all wrong with my apartment; I have the best neighbors I could ever ask for (two of which will be my neighbors next year too, if all goes well! <3), but the prospect of living with my best friend here and not having to pay rent was too good to pass up. I’m moving to the farm*! <3

*When I told my friend, “I’m moving to the shelter!,” he was momentarily concerned because it sounded like I was either (a) homeless or (b) an abuse victim, so he suggested that I amend the statement to ‘farm.’ Both are equally accurate, so I’m goin’ with it.

Waiting for Mom to come home! (She’s adopted me as the daughter she never had. <3)

I’m having major issues with the internet at the gym. It’s wreaking havoc on my concurrent productivity. :[

May 15

  • 15 minutes walking
  • 20 minutes Tahitian practice (while study-questioning)

Since I forgot to take a picture for the day, here’s my adorable roommate! I may be kidnapping her to Kentucky next year as my foster kitty. <3

Total: 375 minutes
Running Total: 1195 minutes!
(See past progress here (start) + here (week 1)!
