My Workouts For Week 18/2011

Last week was a busy week again.

My average steps were 10 577. I’m excited I’ve managed to stay over 10 000 steps for so many weeks! For a first time in a very long time I also went for a long Nordic walk. I felt great afterwards and was reminded why Nordic walking used to be my favourite forms of physical activity. (That was before my knee troubles started.)

Here’s a summary of my workouts

  1. 4 x 30-40 minute walks
  2. 1 x 60 minute Nordic walk
  3. 2 x 40 min strength training

Overall, I’m pretty happy with my current level of physical activity, but I feel a bit bored with my strength training routine. I would like to do more advanced bodyweight exercises, but I’m also  worried I’m not in good enough shape yet. (I’m talking about muscular strength here, not endurance!) . 🙂

Well, the only reasonable solution is to try something new and see how it goes.

I’ll keep you updated.




  1. Satu, I saw your goal of 20 push ups. No woman is strong enough for that when they first start. You just work up to it. If you are interested, I can explain how I worked up to it. 🙂 Marion

  2. Satu says:

    I’m very interested, Marion, and promise to read and comment if you post about it on your blog.

    I actually visited already and was glad to notice that we are the same age. Most of fitness bloggers seem to be under thirty and often more interested in weight loss than exercise..

    Strengh has never been one of my strenghts(!), I’m very flexible and agile though 🙂
