As running has become the main type of exercise I do these days, I think I'm getting fitter and fitter. I am quite pleased that if I don't manage to go running for a few days and then I do, there is no aching afterwards, my body still remembers despite not running for a few days. I think that's a great achievement. Last time I went running, it was a disaster, but that was a different story. As Isabelle is at pre-school every morning, I will try to go more often, I would love to go every morning, but I am sure once the weather starts to be cold and wet, it will be much more difficult. It would be much easier if I had a running buddy.... but unfortunately I don't. It's great we have our Fitness Tuesday, at least I get some encouragement on twitter and some of you really nice people even participate in the Mr Linky thing, which is great and thank you so much for doing so ;)))
And how did you do last week? What exercises have you done in the last week?
As every week I suggest doing the following exercises every day until next Tuesday. It will not take you long, you don't have to do them all at once. If you feel comfortable doing more, do it, if you feel you might need to do less, don't worry, do less this week and do more the week after. I am not a fitness instructor, I am here to encourage you to do some exercises to get fitter and hope you will be there for me too.
I suggest doing the following for the next week:
- 50 sit ups (towards both knees)
- 50 sit ups (touching your left knee)
- 50 sit ups (touching your right knee)
- 17 push ups
- skipping for 75 seconds (roughly 1 turn per second)
So what do you think? If you have any comments, suggestions or questions, please let me know.
Don't forget to come back next Tuesday afternoon and add a link to your comment on how it went and please visit as many of the others' posts as you can. We are here to help each other. Can't wait to see all your comments ;)
