Fitness Focus 11 18 16

This week was my best ever and I’m not the only one saying so. I accomplished a 7 day streak on my Nike Fuel app – I got to my goal of 2400 points/day for 7 days in a row (that happened on Tuesday). After that, I went one day where I went 150% of my goal and Thursday was a whopper day where I doubled it. I did it by walking, running or biking every day and it feels good although now I have a slight blister on my foot which means I’ll be focusing on biking until it heals.

Daily recap

Saturday – 1.75 mile run + walk 3 miles Total 9K steps

Sunday – 13.2 miles walk. Total 26K steps

Monday – 11.5 mile bike ride + 8 mile walk (16K steps) I rode along the Westside Highway to the Intrepid Museum at 45th Street

Tuesday – run 2 miles in the rain + walk 3 miles. Total 9K steps

Wednesday – run 3.1 miles. Ran/walked a total 16K steps

Thursday – run 1.5 miles but ran/walked a total of 13.6 miles. Total 27K steps. Woohoo. I walked all the way to Lincoln Center and got a picture of the waterfall at dusk.

Friday – walk 7 miles 14K steps

I’m really enjoying this fall weather and I’ve been to several of the parks around me looking at foliage. In a couple weeks, the trees will be bare and all that will be left are my memories and these pictures.

In a few weeks, all the trees will look like that one in the center. But for now, it’s gorgeous juxtaposed between the other trees and the striped sky

This week, I didn’t do much strength training but I’ve been trying to work my core with daily planks. I still can’t hold it for very long but I think I’m getting better. Next week, I’ll start timing it and see if I can work up to a minute.

How was your fitness this week?
