    Week One has begun!

    Here's my plan for this week:

    Monday, January 1

    – Easy 3 mile training hike up Pilot Butte for sunrise on New Years Day (recorded on Strava).

    Tuesday, January 2

    – 20 minute low impact cycling ride on my Peloton

    – Workout circuit + warm-up and cool-down

    To get acquainted with the exercises, I did just one set with 10 reps of each exercise. With the warm-up and cool-down, it took me 23 minutes. Note that there are 10 reps of squats in the warm-up, 10 reps of squats in the cool-down, and however many sets/reps you do in the main workout… so a minimum of 30 squats. Just something to keep in mind. 😉

    Wednesday, January 3

    – 30 minute cycling class on Peloton

    Thursday, January 4

    – 30 minute cycling class on Peloton

    Friday, January 5

    – Week 1 exercise routine (planning 1 set/10 reps again) (~23 minutes)

    Saturday, January 6

    – Training hike TBD

    Sunday, January 7

    – Rest day

    In Week 2 I'll hoping to increase the sets and in Week 3, add increase the workouts/week from 2 to 3.

    Note that this is NOT a requirement, nor how you log your exercise or training hikes, but I thought it would be interesting to share what I'm doing, and hear what others are planning for their first week.

    So what does your Week 1 look like?

    Dunno if this is where I should share this, but I need some accountability (and perhaps a gold star ⭐).

    Monday: Five miles on Gabrielino Trail starting at JPL in Pasadena, Calif.

    Tuesday: 12-weeks to Hike Fit Challenge Workout (2 1/2 times — the gym was closing #sad)

    Wednesday: 12-weeks to Hike Fit Challenge Workout (3 times)

    Thursday: 5.2 miles, about 1,000 feet gained at Griffith Park in L.A. (with Sierra Club, very fun)

    Friday: 12-weeks to Hike Fit Challenge Workout. (3 times) 1.4 miles at a very quick pace.

    Saturday: Be a potato. Or 12-weeks to Hike Fit Challenge Workout if I'm feeling spunky.
