December workout #1/30

It was very hard to get myself out the door, as I am basically still in condition of deathly fatigue from travels and large amounts of human contact (but I don't have to see anybody now till Monday, which will be highly beneficial!); but it was a beautiful afternoon, and I told myself I only had to run for 30 minutes, and that was exactly what I did.

I am in a Facebook group that is aiming for 30 mins. cardio workout every day in December, for a sort of "30 in 30" approach - I have regrettably missed day #1, but better start late than never...

The next two weeks are basically insanely busy, so I don't want to set any unreasonable workout goals, but I think I am adding a couple other commitments to the 30 in 30.  The first is that I will go to the Monday and Wednesday evening running classes at Chelsea Piers for the next 5 weeks unless I actually have a schedule conflict (will try and avoid such, but it is not always possible); I really like the teacher, and it's a fun way of having some higher-intensity intervals with external prompting to work hard.  And once school obligations start winding down as of Dec. 16, I will also add back in as much yoga as I can (it's possible that I'll hit a few classes before that, but I will have to see how it goes) - I find it highly beneficial.

.5hr run

Well the M/W night running counts as your 30 minutes, right? So it isn't like it is an *extra* commitment!

30 commitments in 30 days are a lot of work, but I am sure you will do it.
I hate the "large amounts of human contact" at work!!!! I hate the pointless mandatory meetings.... yes I am getting really older.

Yeah, 30 in 30 may lead to some perfectionists dropping out on the first miss but might strongly encourage some to make the full 30 happen.

Maybe 30 in 30 should be the platinum standard, and (30 - n) in 30 get graded on a curve....
