1) Wake up at 5:45am M-F and do at least 3 miles running/walking each day.
Not even close. Did it the first week, then my IT bands were unbearable. Then I couldn't wake up. Then I quit having the ability to breathe. I've kind of rebounded and done 2-3 workouts a week the last 2 weeks, but I got way the heck off track for a week and a half, and it KILLED me.
2) Foam roll my hips, IT bands, glutes, hamstrings, and calves 2x/week after my workout
I do this about 50% of the time after working out, which is pretty good in my book. But not 2x a week.
3) Do a 60 minute yin yoga practice every Saturday.
I totally forgot. This didn't happen once.
4) 20 minute fun workout on Sundays.
Yeah, not so much. It would be great if homework on the computer counted as physical activity. I did walk to/from coffee with a friend on one Sunday, so that's something.
What's happening in TRL hq in May:Big things are happening around here! About a month ago, I was invited to do a 12 week review of Revolt Fitness. In exchange for my actual opinions, Ammon and I are being granted free access to 2 6 week "Uprisings", weekly diet and exercise plans. This starts on Monday, April 29, and we are pretty stoked! Last night we took our before pictures... and our weights. The program asks that you also take measurements and body fat (caliper method), but I just wasn't there. We will probably start that with the first or second week. But for now, I'll give you a couple of before pictures to feast your eyes on.
Also going on, my work is hosting a 12 week walking program that started April 19, going through July 5. My goal is to kick some butt and take names. However, a week in and I'm in the middle of the pack. Time to turn up the volume.
Additionally, I have to start half marathon training in May. I have been awful about figuring out when exactly I need to start, but it's soon...
Do you get the feeling that I have a lot going on fitness wise? Me too...
How was April for you health/fitness wise?
