I did great on my running over the summer because I had a 5k in August, and one in October but that was a fun one so time didn't matter. Dropped right off the wagon in October after the fun run and have only gone jogging maybe three times since Put a few lbs on, realized it & got angry, have dropped the few lbs off again with stricter controls on what/how much I'm eating, but I have to at least get back to a few times weekly jog. I did 2 miles and sometimes 3 to get ready for the 5ks, 2 miles is a standard jog for me (I'm really slow, like 10:30-11m miles)
I was going to a yoga class over the summer that I loved, but I stopped because I have some shoulder thing going on. I noticed it in June and kind of ignored it because I thought it would go away, but it's slowly been getting worse. Can't even wash my hair without it hurting. I have a physical tomorrow and hopefully she can refer me to PT or some exercises to help it, I'm afraid it's some rotator cuff related thing but we'll see what she says. I thought yoga would probably not be good for it... oddly enough I thought lots of violin would aggravate it, but I feel it almost makes it feel slightly better for a few days, like I'm stressing an opposite muscle while playing, so the injured area doesn't hurt as much because of that? I don't know. We'll see, I'd like to get back to yoga if I can because it's mentally and physically good for me.
Good thread to see what everyone else is doing and try to stay motivated! I am currently motivated to do absolutely nothing. I'll keep up to date here and you all can make me feel lazy until I get my ass in gear again.
It takes me 14 minutes to run a mile. I am trying to get faster.
it took me a long time to slowly get to 10:30-11:00, but little by little if you keep it up and push a bit but not too hard, you will see faster times! It's very rewarding to realize you *can* actually do it if you stick with it! (I never in my life thought I'd be a runner/jogger)

In school I hated running - physical education of any kind really. I have been wanting to run a 10k for a few years now and have always put it off. I am starting again and I am going to try to add 1/2 mile each week. Yesterday I ran/walked for 4 miles and it took me 59 minutes. Granted it was after a full days work on my feet but I am going to try to keep it up.
Hi, I'm going to jump in here as it's good motivation and discussion. I work out 3-4 days a week in a variety of ways. Monday I did zumba 1.25 hrs, today is body pump class at the gym (kills me).
BTW - people come in late to our class all the time, but never really disturb people or interrupt the flow so I don't think it's a big deal where I'm at. If someone asked me to move after I got all my equip. set up I'd be really annoyed.
And I have P90x but it is so killer I can't get through the 90 days so just do a dvd on occasion to supplement other stuff. I'm going to ask for the ChaLean series from the same company for my birthday cause it looks good and doable. I just can't commit to min. one hour a day six days a week.
You might try T25 if you are looking for a decent workout without a lot of time. It's actually probably about 30 minutes or a little more with the stretching, but the workout itself is around 25 minutes. I stared week 3 of Insanity this week...have to see if I can keep it up with work. I started it while I was on vacation, hoping if I could get a couple weeks in before going back, it would be easier to keep going once I started work. We'll have to wait and see.
