Do I get extra points for dodging potholes and vehicles when I walk to work?

I heard it's better to weight train before cardio. I've been doing that. Is it true?
I was told that cardio helps get the blood flowing so that your weight training yeilds more rewards, and also told weight training preps the muscles so that your cardio yeilds more rewards. I guess it depends what you want/need. My old trainer had me doing 15 minutes of moderate cardio, then weight training, then polish off the workout with another 15 minutes of cardio.

When I was an athlete, we never did weight training before cardio. We never did weight training without a proper sweat either, so a little cardio before weights is a good thing, IMO.

Gardening. Of the digging and hauling heavy sacks of stuff around variety. 3 hours. I'm spending some quality time with my heating pad this evening. Lol.

Carol took up a "Couch-to-5K" program where she has this app on her iPhone that tells when to walk, when to run, how far, how long, and so on and so on. She recruited some girlfriends to go with her, and it's amazing how much stamina she's built between this, Zumba, and our frequent long walks.

I have friends who used the app and really liked it as a good way to start slow, but stay motivated.


I'm back in the gym after a winter blahs break. I'm on the mile and a minute plan this week, then up to the 2 miles and 2 minute plan next week. Miles on the treadmill and minutes in the tanning booth in prep for a week on a Florida beach in May to celebrate my 50th.

Today is my rest day. Light yoga to stretch out sore muscles and promote circulation. Breath control to release stress.

Monday, it's back to the grind 6x a week for an hour and a half, plus increase in times and weights....Challenge here I come! Lol

My gfs have been canceling their workouts, which is frustrating as I was mooching off their memberships as a guest lol So, I'm going to finally cave in and buy the $10/month membership at Planet Fitness. I went at 5PM and it was poppin. Lots of body types, skin colors, ages...it was a beautiful humanitarian rainbow lol

I burned 657 calories and worked my entire upper body (totaling to 30 mins). I'm going to be incorporating more cardio (as I'm heavy on the weights, currently). I like to teeter-totter between heavy weights/light cardio and heavy cardio/light weight, high reps to keep my body from totally adjusting. I feel like if I don't wake up with pain somewhere, I didn't push it enough lol

1.5 miles / 36 minutes / 4 minute cool down on the treadmill, followed by dodging crazy people at the grocery store since we have "winter weather" in the forecast again.

Still working on getting back in the groove. Just couldn't seem to focus, but did a mile on the treadmill.

I made my knee go scrunch three weeks ago while squatting a really low weight for me, so I'm stuck walking until my knee feels better. Blah!
