I can’t believe February is officially over! Although I didn’t accomplish my goal of an entire month of movement, I must say I am pretty darn proud of myself. I exercised 24 out of 28 days, and even if you don’t count the days where I cleaned instead of doing a workout, I still exercised 20 out of 28 days. Here’s a summary of what I did during my last week of my Month of Movement:
- Cleaned house.
- Run (5 miles!)
- Run (1 mile) and ZUMBA!
- Run (6.2 miles!)
Yeah, you read that right… my last day of the month of movement I ran a 10k! I am completely amazed by how much my fitness has improved, and I haven’t really run that much this month. I ran only 9 times this month, and one of those runs was a race. Yet I am still improving on both my speed and endurance. I have to say… committing to this challenge, and joining the new gym in the first place was the best thing I could have done to keep myself on track as a runner. I’m really proud of myself!
So let’s sum up the whole month, shall we? This week I exercised for 304 minutes, which is an average of about 43 minutes per day. I burned 2934 calories, or about 419 calories per day. Last week I exercised for 260 minutes, or an average of 37 minutes per day and I burned 2527 calories, which is about 362 calories per day. Add those stats to week 2 and week 1 and we have a grand total of…
1347 minutes (about 22.5 hours!) and 12,539 calories.
That’s an average of 48 minutes per day and 448 calories per day. I also logged about 29.2 miles, which is low but it is good to see that my miles per month have been gradually increasing since I fell off the running wagon back in September. I burned off about 45 hamburgers’ worth of calories and put in enough miles to get me from Saginaw to Midland.
I am pretty awesome and looking forward to crossing more things off my “Goals for 2014” list… including running my first 10k race, which I am signed up to do on March 15th! :)
