Day 1 of Annie's 365-Mile Challenge.

Me on my last lap on Annie's 365-Mile Challenge


Today is my first day of Annie's 365-Mile Challenge.
My total duration of my workout today is 1 hour 30 minutes which means I got in 6.75 miles for a start. Not bad I suppose.

I was really tired today and was feeling sick. If you haven been noticing, people around the world are falling sick day by day. Even the old man fell sick today, one day before his birthday. And I'm not sure if he is up to any celebration tomorrow. Doesn't make today quite a motivating day to the gym. So I did a mini run around the neighborhood followed by my old time favorite home workout.

I did a 45 minutes run. For the record, I covered almost 3.75 miles. A little slower than usual. But my right knee felt weak and was starting to give way. So I had to slow down a little. After all, I was saving up a little energy for my squats. Just look at me in the photo - gasping strongly for air.

Another 45 minutes workout which consists of:

Super set this 2 exercises for 3 sets.
15 reps body weight squat
15 reps push ups

Then followed by abs workout.
30 x 3 crunches
30 x 3 Cross-Body Crunch
10 x 3 Air Bike
10 x 3 Lying Leg Raise

Overall, I'm satisfied with today's workout. What about you?

    Way to go! Especially since you're not feeling 100%. I'm satisfied with my workout today - 2 walks for a total of approximately 6 miles.

    Yes. Sure thing Annie.. I seen many are clocking in higher miles. Darn.. I've got to work harder today. And Sherre, great job on the 6 miles. Perhaps I'll be following your style. Split my workout to 2 sessions. Good Luck people!

    That picture looks great! You looked shredded in that one.

    When I feel sick, I would stay away from working out. Sleeping to recover is much more important.

    Anyways, I had a great workout today. I was able to increase my strength on the deadlift while I am losing fat. I also ran a mile in 9:17, and I was dead tired!
