Fitness Focus / by Craig Kerbrat

Happy Sunday everyone! We've moved into March, and we've just lost an hour of sleep, but it's almost officially Spring, so I can't be too upset about it. Anyway, Sunday also means it's time for my weekly fitness update!

March 1-7

  • Workouts: 1 (+1 moving bonus)
  • Run Training: 1/2
  • 10000 Steps: 7
  • Steps Streak: 21
  • Top Steps: 13983
  • Starting Weight: 78.9 kg
  • Ending Weight: 79.0 kg
  • Change: +0.1 kg
  • Total Change: +0.6 kg

So I only got in one real workout this week. After helping Andrea move last week, I was feeling a bit on the sore side until the middle of the week, so my workout didn't happen until Wednesday. Which means I should have tried to work out on  Saturday, but I just wasn't feeling it, so I decided to go for a long walk instead. I added it under "run training" even though I didn't actually run. But getting out there is half the battle. Now that it's getting more Spring-like out, I'm finally going to make an effort to get out and start the Zombies, Run! 5k Training app again, so I should have more to put in the "run training" field.

I've managed to keep up the steps streak, and I'm sitting at 21 days. I'm pretty excited about this one 'cause I don't think I've kept a streak going this long before. And if I get going with the "run training", I should be able to keep the step count going, and maybe even increase my step goal. But I don't want to get too ahead of myself.

I'm still sitting at about the same weight, which means I really need to get more cardio in. Which again, the running should help with. Hopefully adding that to the mix will help me finally lose some of the weight I've been wanting to get rid of.

So basically, my goal for the week is to stick with my two regular workouts, and I'm going to start with the Zombies, Run! 5k Training. The first week is three workouts, mostly walking with a little bit of running to ease into it. We'll see how that goes. I'll have to figure out a schedule this week as I go and see how I'll implement it into my daily routine.

Anyway! That's all I've got, so I'll leave you with this picture of a shirtless Chris Pratt. Because why not?

The dream.
