Happy New Year! I’m starting a nice shiny new thread to keep track of my 2019 exercise goals. Please feel free to join me.

My goals are:
1. To do some exercise on at least 250 days during 2019;
2. To do at least 200 hours of exercise.

I made a start today. Exercise DVD (No More Trouble Zones): 50 min.

My goals:

3. I have signed up to a 100miles in a month for February
4. To do more parkruns - ideally 2 a month

Hello. Can I join please? My aim is to run 780km in a year - that's 15k pet week.

First run this morning!

My goals for 2019 are:

* Go to the gym 3 times a week which I started at the end of last year but want to continue until it's a habit.
* Improve my 10k time. I ran my first 10k in November in 1h 13 and I'd like to get that under 1 hour in the same race this year. However, I'm a bit of a fairweather runner and have packed my shoes away while it's quite so dark and cold out in the evening.

So far this year I've done two HIIT type classes, Pilates and spin. Tomorrow is my rest day.

OublietteBravo Sun 06-Jan-19 21:23:11

Oh dear, I’ve somehow managed to have 2 rest days this weekend rather than the usual 1. I blame DH - he was away, so I had to do children taxiing at my usual exercise times.

OublietteBravo Wed 06-Feb-19 19:38:20

Hi Oubliette! Bravo on all the exercise and commitment!

I have been exercising but having been trying to cut down on the one spent on my phone (hence not using MN very much).

My knee is much better and I've just started using the Jillian DVDs again - I was sooooo sore the first few days as haven't done any squats or lunges since June! Am rotating between Killer Buns and Thighs, Killer Arms and Back and Extreme Shed and Shred at the moment. Just deciding whether to do 6W6P today for a change!

OublietteBravo Sat 16-Feb-19 09:56:44

Hi Sophie - good to hear from you. I’m glad your knee is getting better. I’m not surprised the JM workouts hurt - I find them difficult even after a weeks break!

I did 30DS L2D4 & 6W6P L1 yesterday (1 hour), and KB&T L1 this morning (40 min)
