Week 37 Exercise + Mini Challenge

Time to post last week’s exercise. (You might have noticed I haven’t posted week 36’s exercise – that is because I didn’t really do anything . I spent my week moping and listening to sad songs and wetting my keyboard with my tears.)

As you can see, I did well regarding how many steps I took last week. My weekly average was 9031 steps, which is more than my goal of 8000 steps. Good girl!

Also, I did

  • 2 x  FBB strength training workouts
  • 1x metabolic circuits (instead of the intended 2)
  • 1 x Feldenkrais kessibs (out of the intended 2)

I didn’t quite reach my goal, but I’m still pretty happy with myself. (You can see my goals here).

If I’m to be in a better shape in a few weeks, I decided to uplevel my training and take the one week challenge I mentioned in my earlier post. It’s called “exercise before 8am every day for 7 days“. I’m going to be lenient though: it’s enough if I exercise first thing in the morning even if it’s after 8 o’clock.

I hope that the morning exercise makes me feel more energetic. I’ve been feeling pretty sluggish and blah lately. Also the weather is pretty horrible in Finland right now. It’s gray and dark and raining all the time.

    Hi Satu! I think morning is an excellent time to exercise. You can get that endorphin high before you even think hard about the day. I think your workouts for the week went well. I would give that a really good score.

      I love it how I feel when I work out in the morning. I’m much more focused.

    Satu I hope you are feeling better. I love the idea of fitness challenges. However, with my weird night shift schedule it is difficult to commit to group challenges. I think this is why I enjoy training for races because I can work my training schedule around everything else in my life. I look forward to hearing how the challenge goes for you. I do enjoy getting my workouts done as early as possible in the day.

    I wish you a sunny weekend.

      Hi Aimee!

      Being the master of your own schedules is the good thing about working out at home and living alone. The first day of the challenge went well..

  3. Great work Satu! I’m needing to adjust my routine a bit so I’m hoping your morning workouts will inspire me!!!

    I never used to exercise in the morning, but I gradually changed that and now I love it. It gets the exercise out of the way and gives me a good endorphin rush 😀
