    Oh my gosh! How difficult was that! Slogging through snow is a work out, but in 15 degrees? You're heart had to be pumping. You deserve extra credit for that!

    It wasn't deep snow but there was snow covering the sidewalks in many places and there was ice under it so in many places I had to walk like I was wearing 4" heels. My lungs burned from sucking in the cold air. I should be walking more because this has been a relatively mild winter for northern Ohio.

    The most depressing part is looking at my pedometer app when it says that only burned 175 calories.

    Oh, yes! I figured you would have to walk carefully if the snow wasn't deep. It's work out either way and in such cold air, I think it's harder.

    What a bummer. I wish pedometer's gave you extra credit for the extra effort. You surely burned more calories than that. Trying to keep from falling on ice, is a full body effort.

    I already feel it in my butt and I will be sore tomorrow so I need to remember to stretch before I go to bed in a few minutes.

    There are some people who refuse to shovel their sidewalks. They don't seem to understand that people walk dogs, some of us walk for exercise and the USPS person needs to be able to deliver their junk mail. I have thought about getting a pair of Yaktrax for my shoes but I keep putting it off. Somebody in the neighborhood has them because I saw the imprints that they leave in the snow and ice.

    Yep, walking on ice is full body effort! I hope you'll get your stretch in and feel good in the morning.

    Those are nifty! I don't live where it consistently snows, but when it does, it's a literal pain in the bottom because it eventually melts a bit, then ices over. It would be neat to have something like Yaktrax to be able to walk with greater ease and peace of mind. Thanks!

    Re: Daily exercise log

    Yesterday, I took it easy. Just did 2.8 miles in 30 minutes. I couldn't sleep the night before and woke up exhausted.
    Today I did a HIIT, because I can't run tomorrow. Did the same distance in 30 minutes, but on my high intensity intervals, I was running 7.4 mph for the minute. Another new personal best. Before today, I could rarely hit 7.0 for the minute.

    Re: Daily exercise log

    My weeks typically look like this:

    Monday: Mostly a rest day. 200 to 240 push-ups, split into sets of 30. Usually so many standard pushups, so many decline pushups and so on. Deadlift, Squats (not overly heavy since I run so much, usually 50 pound goblet squats - 3 sets of 10).

    Tuesday: 5 mile run, 100 pull-ups / chin-ups in sets of 10 to 12.

    Wednesday: 5 mile run.

    Thursday: Bench heavy, some shoulder work, lots of core / abs work. 100 push-ups. 4 mile run.

    Friday: 5 mile run, 80 pull-ups.

    Saturday: Barbell Shoulder press, barbell rows, core, dips, rows, core, bench, rows, core, Landmine press, loaded caries. This is my hardest weight lifting workout of the week, done in circuits, no rest between exercises other than maybe walking off the heavy ones.

    Sunday: 10 to 13 mile long run.

    Been doing this for my whole life. I am 43 and still rocking abs.

    Re: Daily exercise log

    Yesterday, I wanted to go a bit farther, so I did 3 1/2 miles in 34 minutes. And I lifted for 1/2 hour. Two sets of 15 reps, upper body.

    Today I ended up getting 4 miles in. I did the 3 in 31 minutes but I wasn't feeling done, so I did another 1/2 mile walking at 6.0 incline and then the other 1/2 mile at 6.4 mph. Just trying to mix it up.

    Definitely not going to post the daily log. Finally all caught up to where I was in 2014 before I screwed up both shoulders pretty badly. Progress has naturally been quite pleasing since Jan. 6 (bar for deadlift + weights arrived), top set up ~30lbs with the others comparably increased, more reps, longer total workout.

    I have been running less, though. Oh well, I'll find a balance.

    Re: Daily exercise log

    I have a nice workout room in my basement complete with a bench ( which I almost only use for leg curls ), a heavy bag, Bas Ruten training CD's, pull-up bar, mats and all the dumbells I'll ever need.

    I decided to stop throwing time & $$ down the drain going to "fitness clubs" and invested in these items. NOW the only challenge is getting down there and using it .. which I do regularly.

    I find that once you make a habit of it, you don't feel right unless you get some work in... a healthy habit !! .. about TIME for me LOL

    As far as keeping a log, I'll do so one of these days when I impress myself with a good workout LOL

    I bridge every day though, I don't know why but it just makes me feel better.

    Those who don't have the space for such things, can STILL get good work outs using good sets of body weight exercises - there are hundreds of great ones... even in a small area.

    But it CAN be a challenge to get yourself to DO them I know LOL . . . make it a habit, a GOOD habit.. if I can anyone can : )
