Treadmill Self-Challenge – Day 02

I haven’t been as good as I’d like to be with my exercise regime. I’ve got a treadmill, and I hop on it for a half hour, approximately every other day. That’s not good enough. So, I’m challenging myself with a goal of getting on it every single day, and working up to perhaps an hour, if not a little more. I maintain a fairly slow pace (30min/mile) and don’t plan to change that significantly (if at all). My goal it to do it more often, and for a little longer.

My hope is that posting a chart about my successes/failures will help motivate me to stay on track.

Today I mowed the yard and figure that counts in lieu of treadmill time. Considering the amount of time, and that I’m pushing a mower on a hilly yard, it’s actually a better workout than using the treadmill.

  1. *groan* Mowing the lawn is soooo boring! We had a house with the worst lawn ever when we lived in Sweden, big and hilly and it took ages to mow the damn thing. Bribed the daughter when she got older so she did it for me 😀 I don’t miss having a garden and mowing the lawn! 🙂

    But you’re right, it’s a great workout. Good job!

  2. It is boring. I get a little daydreaming in but tedious as the job is, I do have to pay attention to the task or it can be dangerous. So yeah, boring. But at least the weather was pleasant. Chilly, but otherwise nice and peaceful.
