Exercising With a Friend

       This week I added two 30 minute sessions of weight training.  I am proceeding very slowly with that to avoid injury since I haven't done weights in awhile.

     I'm still on track for my goal of 900 minutes for the month of June.  I added a whopping 365 minutes to my total which included a few hours of weeding and planting. (bending and sweating counts, right?)

    I varied my workouts in another way this past week.  I usually exercise alone and  occasionally with my best friend, the Admiral.  (sorry Pete)  but, rarely with anyone else. 

   Last week I went for a long walk with an old friend and I highly recommend it!  We talked books and writing and a hundred other things, chattering away as the miles and minutes went by painlessly.  It was a welcome change from my usual solitary , meditative walks.   Exercising with a friend can be good for the body and nourishing for the soul.
  Week Two Accomplishments:

                         Added weight sessions
                         Varied my regimen  
                         On track with minutes
                         Enjoyed exercising with a friend

 Goals for next Week:

                         Maintain momentum
                         Increase walking speed
                         Vary walking speed within each workout
                         Add some bike riding

Walking with my best friend, G

Take-Away -  Occasionally multitasking is a good thing when it involves spending time with a friend and exercising too!
