Sunday Fitness Update by Craig Kerbrat

Hey! It's Sunday, so it's time for my weekly fitness update. And I actually did something fitness-y this week! So that's fun! Check it out below! 

August 9-15

  • Workouts: 0
  • Run Training: 2
  • 10000 Steps: 7
  • Steps Streak: 32
  • Top Steps: 13939
  • Starting Weight: 77.1 kg
  • Ending Weight: 77.8 kg
  • Change: +0.7 kg
  • Total Change: -0.6 kg

So I didn't get in any gym workouts, but I did go running twice. It was actually pretty nice to get out running again. And I improved my pace a lot between the two. There was still a lot of walking involved, but I didn't feel nearly as out of shape as I thought I would after not running for so long.

I also did a little better with my challenge this week. I did my ten push-ups 6 out of the 7 days. I forgot on Monday when I went for my first run. Interesting fact: the push-ups have still not gotten any easier for me. I'm going to continue with just the ten per day for now, and maybe increase it later. 

The only thing I'm mildly concerned about after a good week, is that I was off work all week so it was easy to just go for a run when I felt like it. Now that I'm back to work, am I going to feel like doing anything athletic before or after work? I'd like to think yes, but I'm worried. I know me. I know I have been struggling to get up early, and after a long day of work and transit, I'm usually feeling pretty tired when I get home. So I need to figure out how I'm going to motivate myself to keep up the momentum. I guess that will be my project for the week.

Anyway, that's what I've got for the week. Thanks for reading, and have an awesome Sunday! 

Fitness Comeback by Craig Kerbrat

It's Sunday! And what a Sunday! It's sunny and beautiful out, I got to have brunch with Rob and our friends, bought some new shorts at Old Navy, and just grabbed some groceries for the week. It's definitely going to be a barbecuing week with all of this sunshine. Anyway, let's get to the main event!

May 31-June 6

  • Workouts: 2
  • Run Training: 1
  • 10000 Steps: 7
  • Steps Streak: 49
  • Top Steps: 16032
  • Starting Weight: 78.9 kg
  • Ending Weight: 79.0 kg
  • Change: +0.1 kg
  • Total Change: +0.6 kg

So this week I finally got back on track with my workouts. I got up on Tuesday and Friday mornings and did my thing, so I feel better about my fitness efforts. I also found an evil ab workout on YouTube that I gave my best effort. The workout is supposed to take 5 minutes, but I did it in about 15. And I cut out a bit of it. So that's something to work on for this week.

I also finally went for a run last Sunday, so that was good. I started over with week one of Zombies, Run! 5k Training. It's a very easy week, but the last time I ran was last summer so I really need to start back at the beginning. I had the intention of running at least once more last week, but it didn't end up happening.  So my goal is to go running at least twice this week.

Otherwise, I don't have much to say. It was a good week and I plan to keep it up. Enjoy your Sunday, and have a great week!
