Lifted yesterday.

Today, I'll run 3 or 4 miles. (Yup, no variation for me, until the snow starts piling up, then it's ski time. :D Lookin' forward to it. :) )

Plan to run 2 miles tomorrow morning before work. Yep, my routine is a little boring right now too, but I'm just happy if I have enough time to exercise at all these days. :)

Yup, I'm in a pattern, too. But not a rut. It'll be a looong time before I run out of yoga poses. Especially since I tend to make up my own. :silly:

Go hamsters!

yesterday:
50 min Irish Dance
45 min Tae Kwon Do
about a 3 mile bike commute to, from, and around campus

today:
Does practicing the irish dance routine around the apartment count? ;)
Also, I'm about to walk to the grocery store, which is probably about a mile and half walk round trip.

Monday and Thursday I did a one hour Kempo workout. Now my son, my husband, and I are all doing Kempo 2-3 times/week :D

My brother's girlfriend is doing Kempo! She goes at least three times a week too.. she's learning all sorts of crazy pressure points. It sounds addicting :)

Today I did the campus commute by bike, ~2 miles, and I'm about to go on a 2 mile run before it gets too cold out.

Tofuy- that does sound exhausting. good work!

I'm planning a relaxing de-stress run in the morning. I had a stressful Friday. :(

Sorry to read about your stressful Friday, spidermonkey.

Thanks for joining in, gladcow!

Basically a rest day for me (not by choice—I had a lot to do today)...

Exercise can definitely be very therapeutic.

Saturday, 11/13/04
• walk to friend's house (three miles round trip)
• 40 minutes padmasana and savasana

Wow...exercise might be a good idea, but in my neighborhood you only run if someone's chasing you. Does watching my dogs exercise count? Cuz I'm very conscientious about THEIR level of physical activity....

40 minutes padmasana and savasanaAre those different types of yoga?

Today I ran two miles. I also just biked to Bloomingfoods and back, which is probably around 2 1/2 miles. Now I'm happily drinking silk nog. Yayy!

Tracy G

Two types of poses. Basically, that was my silly way of saying that I sat around on my butt and then laid around flat on my back for 40 minutes while breathing in and out. :D

Nice work with the running and biking. Wish I had some soy nog. The way everyone talks about it, it almost sounds better than yoga!
