30 in 30 Day 3: April 21

Today is John Muir's birthday, according to my Sierra Club calendar, so it would have been nice to do my 30 minutes outdoors. I did a yoga/Pilates class, then fiddled around trying to find the perfect cheap flight and hotel room in Washington D.C. for more than an hour, and then had to rush to work. It is beautiful out there so I hope some of you are able to do workouts outdoors.

One of the big ideas behind this challenge was to throw out the idea of the "perfect" workout and just get those 30 minutes in. Hope you're enjoying it so far.

Tomorrow will be another Bridge to 10K day, and I will have to do my workout early to get it in.

Work is interfering with my workout daydreams: long bike rides, garden rehab, monster decluttering sessions... I will really be glad when school is out!


  1. I did do my 30 minutes PLUS yesterday. Treadmill in the morning and walked around the park with my 4-year-old for about 45 minutes in the afternoon.

    So, I suck and didn't get up at 5:30 this morning. :(

  2. I got in a couple of hours of walking the golf course, walking around the campus of the University here in town, and then walking to and around the farmers market...I am sunburned and fried!

    When are you going to DC?

  3. 30 minutes at gym, weights and elliptical. Feels good!

  4. I'm a little late joining the conversation, but I've been active for 30 min every day since you started 30 in 30 (I think :-) ) The weather is beautiful here in NC, and I've been soaking up as much as I can before the heat makes it miserable!
    Work has ALWAYS interfered with my fitness goals, until I was laid off in Sept. Now, I'm in the best shape of my life, physically. Financially... that's another story!
    Thanks for the motivation, Jen. I'm off to ride my bike soon. By the way, have you been out to enjoy your new bike, yet?
