February Mini-Challenge 2011

How did you running go?  Mine was okay. Having to take a week off for traveling made a small impact.  But I am hoping to be caught up by the end of this week.  Overall  I am feeling pretty good!  I am definitely continuing to with this plan, it is working for me.

But it is time to add in some flexibility!  Definitely having injured my neck and shoulders last summer has given me a greater interest to make sure that I am properly stretching and increasing my flexibility.

I want to change up the focus a bit and add in yoga and pilates.  I really like yoga it can be relaxing or it can be intense.  It always has me pushing forward to improve.

Here is the Challenge


The Action Plan: Beginner Plan for individuals who have been exercising for several months, but are new to running.

  • Week 1 – 3 or 4 times a week walk 25 minutes and run 5 minutes
  • Week 2 – 3 or 4 times a week walk 23 minutes and run 7 minutes
  • Week 3 – 3 or 4 times a week walk 21 minutes and run 9 minutes
  • Week 4 – 3 or 4 times a week walk 19 minutes and run 11 minutes


The goal will be over the next 28 days to get in 14 yoga/pilates sessions.

Here is the Spreadsheet to track you work.

You will see over the month more yoga posts, I am not an expert, but I hope to bring in a few peeps to help me with some great info.

Hope you enjoy the Month!
