Healthy Writers Club: Move and Write
This has been a mixed week for exercise, what with the cold and wet weather starting. I felt a little off my game, since I started week #2 of my own Couch-to-5K program, inspired by Josh Clark’s article on the site, coolrunning.com. The workouts are a little more intense, and I wish I could run, but want to make the workouts totally doable so I’m sticking to walking for now. I walk fast during the High Intensity intervals and stroll comfortably during the Low Intensity intervals.
Day #3, Week #1: Saturday, Nov. 3 . I walked in my neighborhood. Can’t remember where. It’s a blur. So much has happened since then. Though I do remember working at my computer on a free report I’m releasing soon. LOL
Day #4, Week #2: Monday, Nov. 5: I walked on Piedmont Ave. to Mountain View Cemetery and back. I also practiced deep breathing and did a more intense interval cycle, as is requested for week #2. It was nice walking in this calm space, while listening to election news — pre-final results.
Day #5, Week #2: Wednesday, Nov. 7 — I walked with my friend, Meta, and didn’t do the fartlek training, but I did go to Capoeira class at Capoeira Mandinga! Yes! Marcelo the mestre was teaching. He did a great job helping the newbies like me feel comfortable.
Day #6, Week #2: I’m planning to walk when I get back from my SFA-RWA (San Francisco Area Romance Writers of America) group meeting tomorrow. I’ll update you if I did next week. Thanks for keeping me honest!
