My addition to April 2019 exercise challenge.
I'm going to try and achieve 894.6 km this month.

All things based on receiving new exercise cycle in good time.

Weight at 206 lbs this morning and looking to get to 203-204 lbs by May 2019.

The only exercise I log is my time on the exercise bike.
That's 21 out of 25 Days at an average of 42.6 km on each exercise day.

I do two sessions a day most days @ 35 minutes, 92-100 rpm, 36-40 kph, 120-130 bpm & 240-260 Watts.

Previous Months

2019) January 1249.8 km, February 1107.2 km, March 958.1 Km

2018) January 1109 km, February 1182 km, March 1246.7 km, April 1279.8 km, May 1216.9 km, June 1123.1 km

I start a new job on Monday. It will mean at least a 45 minute commute each way so losing some time.
Ive joined the pool and have 3 visits so far. I swim but just use that as a warm up for my aqua jogging. I wear a flotation belt and have resistance dumbells and it really is a good overall workout.
I do reps of 4 lenghts, one is a jog, second one a fast run pumping arms really fast. Third is like cycling but also pumping arms and working chest. And fourth is like a rowing machine or doing crunches and is going to get rid of my baggy belly.

So plan for this month is
Vibroplate x 22 times
Swim or walk x 16 times

I will also have a short walk between carpark and work, i will count steps but not include it in total.

Thats my plan for the month

I’m going to start skipping tomorrow, just need to get up in the morning and sort out my rope, Going to start with 5 mins a day and build up from there, just getting over a cold from hell so hoping I can do 5 mins without coughing my guts up. Also plan on doing 10k steps a day. Not including the ones counted whilst skipping.

I've not been able to add anything to April's exercise challenge.

My replacement exercise cycle has gone missing according according to UK Mail/DHL.
It has taken until mid afternoon 2 Apr 2019 for them to admit this.

It was picked up from DKN on Thurs 28th Mar 2019 for delivery on Fri 29th Mar 2019.

How on earth do these companies lose something of that size.

2 mins skipping. I’ve just found a beginners program for skipping so I’m going to follow that. Says to do it every other day, so that’s what I’m going to do.

12289 steps

Im in!!

My goal this month is to achieve 10k steps a day every day. I failed yesterday as I was ill, only got to 8,502 however I did 28,000 (very busy day) Monday so I think I more than made up for it.

So on track for 300,000 steps this month

Hopefully have replacement exercise cycle tomorrow ?
Still don't understand how such a large item can go missing !!!

Will build exercise cycle tomorrow and at least try and get one session in.
I've had a relaxed week due to previously mentioned issue.
Probably make alteration to my original exercise plans as a result.

Finally received exercise cycle today.
Don't ask !!! (More DHL/UK Mail hiccups).

Unboxed and built and ready to go.
Will make a belated start today to my April Exercise Challenge.
I have altered my original plan to take into account my lost days.
