Day 18,19,20 - Sandy happened

3 days of no workouts and I'm going slightly stir crazy...
There was plenty running around for BCP, office shutdowns, securing my house, saving Smitha's house and helping my friends who didnt have power. But either way... couldn't really think about workouts the last 3 days.

Setting aside 60$.. all thanks to Sandy.

Day 17: Dancing counts

Day 17 - Oct 27 - Saturday - late post

About 3-4 hours of dancing today thanks to Anuja's bacheloretter (and running around prepping for it!)

Counts :)

Day 15: half way point

2 mile treadmill run followed by the elliptical.

Strange feeling to workout in the evening. Too much adrenaline now :)

Day 14: attempt

Lack of time is my excuse today. Today is Saraswati there were pujas to be done and golu(s) to attend. I woke up at 5 and plotted all day to somehow find an hour to exercise. It just didn't happen.

I did walk 2 miles though. But setting aside 20$ for this incomplete attempt.

Half way point tomm. Let's do this!!

Day 13: it's too early

Today was definitely a rough day to wake up early and trudge to the gym. But did it! An hour of kickboxing later...closing in on the half way point of this challenge :)

Day 12: Punch with care

60 minutes of kickboxing. Running on empty today...still pushed through some shoulder and elbow injuries.

Say it with me... This is fun! :)

Day 11: Got my garbo on

As my darling Puffling would say, 'Get my garbo on'... that's exactly what we did :)

So the workout for Day 11 was a solid 2 hours of dancing. Friday night was also another night of dancing ...latin this time. So no gym or running or walking... but this dancing suffices as a good workout, I'd say. Yes? :)

Day 10: mind is blown

Still reeling from Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day movie! Seriously epic.

60 mins of kickboxing. 10 minutes of painful stretching with Geoff's help.

Day 9: speed walk express

Speed walked 5.5 miles. Ambled another 1.5 miles. Total 7 miles FTW.

The 5.5 mile speed walk was from work till The Bull till Times Square. Took 1.5 hrs.

Day 8: Sore no more

Geoff kicked the soreness out of me. And I punched my anger over Romney away.

50 mins of kickboxing. 10 mins of core training. Planks are getting easier now.

Day 7: so sore

Horribly sore due to the run. But it's a good kind of pain...or so they say.

2.6 mile walk this morning. Another 2 miles planned for this evening.

Day 6: Rockette training

60 minutes of kickboxing and calisthenics. Geoff calls this my rockette training ... hah!

In other happy news - I shed another dress size. Le yay :) This does not bode well for my wallet but my heart is ecstatic.

Day 5: Run ammu run!

First run in about 6 years! 3 miles in 50 minutes. I can do better the next time.

Knee injuries be damned. #letsdothis

Day 4: Migraine madness

Been waiting for this horrible migraine to subside so I can hit the gym today.
Keep you posted.

--evening update--

Managed to do a slow paced 3 mile walk. Will push harder tomm.

But setting aside 20$ for today's almost missed workout.

Day 3: Barely breathing

You know that song by Duncan Sheik... it's stuck in my head today. "I am barely breathing and I can't find the air...". No connection to today's workout :)

60 minutes of pure kickboxing. One of the older visitors of my gym...who's super fit... came up to me today when I took a breather from the '3 punch - kick - shuffle - kick - jump' routine. He said..."That looks painful". It was. Showing the first signs of muscle fatigue today but totally "get over"-able.

Day 2: Winter is coming

Freezing brisk walk this morning at 6:45. 2.7 miles in 45 minutes.

Another 2 miles planned for this evening. Brr.

Edit at 10:30 pm: Managed another 3.2 miles in the evening. So total 5.9 miles in total today! BooYah! :)

Day 1: kickboxing in the rain

65 minutes of kickboxing and calisthenics. Thank goodness my trainer has a sense of humor. Makes it easier to deal with 6 am icy rains. Also helps that he is a clown and we end up dancing to old pop songs randomly :)
