Exercise Challenge: Month 8, Week 3

Sunday we biked to the Eastside Culture Crawl, then Science World & home again. Total riding time was about 50 minutes.

Monday I skipped Fitcamp (I know, I know, that's two classes in a row) but I did ride down to Langara & back for a total of 40 minutes of cycling.

Tuesday I got in some walking while running errands, maybe a half hour all together.

Wednesday we did a minor amount of walking, but SweetSalt Bakery is just too close to our house, so it wasn't ten minutes at a time.

Thursday we got stuck waiting around most of the afternoon for a plumber, so didn't get out at all.

Friday I skipped Fitcamp again (I'm blaming Sprout's wacky sleep schedule. Naps are throwing off his bedtime to too late for even me. More on that in a future post.) No real exercise to be had.

Saturday the weather was (finally) nice, so we biked to UBC & back, about 110 minutes.

Exercise total for the week: 200 minutes. 80 minutes under my goal for the week. ARgh! It's the weather I'm blaming. I haven't been particularly inclined to get myself & Sprout into full rain gear & slosh out on the bike. The cold, I don't mind so much.

This time of year, I'm more likely to use the bike trailer so Sprout stays warmer & dryer. However, the trailer is also a slight disincentive to getting out of the house, as it's a bit more of a hassle to hook up & unhook when we get somewhere, not to mention it's rather large as a stroller.

What is this Exercise Challenge, you ask? Read my post on Day One for details & how you can get involved too.

Nothing says “best gift ever” like a caribou!
Starting at just $40, Gifts of Canadian Nature help protect habitat for Canada’s native wildlife. A Gift of Canadian Nature lasts for years to come and is a gift that gives thrice! Once to the recipient with a personalized certificate and a beautiful calendar, once to the giver with a charitable tax receipt, and once to Canadian wildlife.
