  • Aaron says:

    This week was awash, everyone in the house had the flu!
    Already looking forward to next week, but keeping it simple as we come back from feeling sick.
    My goal for Nov 11-17 = 18 miles (3 short runs = 8; PT exercise everyday = 10)

  • Bev says:

    Since I am still recovering from a virus-sinus ‘thing’ I am setting up a couple of goals this week: 2 days of cardio-running; 5 days of jazz dancing; 1 day of rest.

  • Sharon says:

    My goal for the week is 15 miles ( 10 miles running, 30 min Fat B;aster and 40 min strength training).

  • Aaron says:

    Altered my goal this week (family still recovering from sickness). Goal was 18 and got in 18, but had to cut runs and do yoga, dancing w/ family, hiking w/ family etc. to do more low-key, family time exercise. Setting my sights realistic for an upcoming very busy work week with travel. Goal = 2 runs and other exercise for a total of 15.

  • Aaron says:

    Short bits of exercise last week, but everything was hard earned! (Three 12-14hr days in a row at work hosting a big event, two days traveling out of state to visit a parent in the hospital). Three runs, plus hikes and walks with family. 16 total. Phew!
    Goal for Thanksgiving week = 15 total again. Run on Thanksgiving morning plus at least one other run, rounding out the 15 with CT.

  • Kayne says:

    Thanksgiving week I was short of my goal of 22 miles. I did 20; 5 on Wed, walked 2.25 on Thurs and ran a half marathon on Sun.
    This week’s (Dec 2 – 8) goal is planks and 16 miles of running.

  • Kayne says:

    Dec 2-8 I missed my goal of 16 by 2 miles.
    This week’s goal is 20 miles and more planks.

  • Kayne says:

    Dec 9 – 15 I missed my goal of 20 by 4 miles. too much going on.
    This week’s Dec 16-22 goal is 20 miles.
