PMP Week FIVE Challenge! 10/3-10/9

1. Between now and Friday Night, aim for (not necessarily have to MEET just AIM for) 3 hours of ST (that's approximately 36 minutes per day - on the HIGH end of your goal.) Try to reach a minimum of 2 hours though (which is about 24 minutes per day).

Monday - Spark generated strength training - 45 minutes / DONE
Week 7, Day 1 c25K training / done

2. This week, do your FAVORITE ST routines and keep it as not boring as possible.

Tuesday - Spark generated strength training with medicine ball - 45 minutes /Done

3. Its a new month and you still have FOUR WEEKS to make a visible change in your body, which is far more posible than you realise! Start October off, not just with a bang, but with a postive attitude.

Read some good entries to help remotivate and pump up the volume/ DONE

Wednesday: 45 minute walk with dogs/ 25 minutes strength training/ DONE

Thursday - Week 7 - C25K day 2 training plus any some extra strength exercises with stretching (yoga?) DONE/ FOR EXTRA STRENGTH I INSTALLED GUTTER GUARDS AND MY LEG MUSCLES AND ARMS ARE BURNING.

4. Repeat #3. Ran and walked for 40 minutes/ done
Read more, do more, blog more, exercise more/ 45 minutes strength training/done
Another 40 minute walk/ done

5. Between Saturday morning and Sunday night, see how many minutes you can rack up, working on any kind of exercise flex/cardio/strength) and see if you can add them up to a number that you are stupid proud to announce on Monday.

90 minutes installing gutter guards/done
10 walking/ 25 minutes jogging/done

Will have to think about this one for awhile. Have been reading many blogs and also articles on jogging to help keep me motivated.

6. *BONUS* See if you can surprise yourself, somehow, this week./ I surprised myself by climbing a very tall ladder and working on it for almost 2 hours this week/ I have a fear of heights and also afraid that because of my weight I am not very stable. I think because I have been doing the strength training I was able to feel more secure on the ladder and definitely it helped me to be able to do this installation work.
