 << Week 1 | Overview | Week 3 >>
  • Goal for this week:  Keep it up!

DAY 1 — Change my daily routine

It is a particularly busy week this week, so I am not sure how I will get my exercise in….  However, I thought I would start by just changing my daily routine to get more activity.  I am now biking to and from the office.  When I go to get coffee (okay, green tea!) and use the microwave on the third floor, I make a point to use the stairs instead of the elevator.

  • Activity: Bike to work, walk the stairs
  • Time: n/a
  • Distance: n/a
  • Elevation Gain: n/a
  • Notes: It takes some time to change my habits.

DAY 5 — Hike Mt. Sanitas

One of my all-time favorite hikes (along with just about everyone else in Boulder) is Mt. Sanitas.  Every time I hike this trail, it is always a different experience.  Today I saw 4 deer!

  • Notes: I have to cut off those 3 minutes the next time I do this hike!
