April workout challenge - join me!

March has been...something. With the barrage of scary news reports, plus the current isolation, it's not a surprise I feel sluggish and don't want to exercise. If I can find the motivation, I know I'll benefit from it (physically and emotionally).

Anyone want to join an "Every day in April" workout challenge? I know there are threads in the check-in forum similar to this...but I rarely pop over there. Let your workouts be whatever you want. I think I'll do a combo of yoga and Pahla B. I need something that makes my heart happy.

How about it? Who's in? If so, make a post to list all your workouts (but conversation posts are great, too!)

I'm in! I have been more consistent with my workouts lately, would love to keep going.

What about rest days - are those allowed?

I'm planning on every day because I'll be doing fairly gentle workouts.

I'm in!! I think rest days should be allowed, especially if you're doing really intense workouts. Just having somewhere to post is good motivation.

No, not at all what I was communicating. Sorry.
I just meant, I'm not really making any rules. *I'm* doing every day...but you do you!

I started the thread wanting a communal, wow-these-are-crazy-times-let's-do-this-thing-with-encouragement-and-stuff. Rest days are fine with me!

After 5 days in a row of Pahla B, I was starting to feel a bit aching and run down. So I did Jane Adams Floor Practice and Morning Energy Practice. Back to Pahla tomorrow.

I did really well this month. I only had 3 days (so far) when I didn't work out. I usually average working out about 6 days a week, so April was better than normal for me. Really concentrating on my workouts has helped me tremendously during the shelter-at-home and pandemic situation. I'm so thankful for VF!!

I did well. I didnt miss a day. I missed some days of yoga but overall I felt I did pretty good. This was a good way to stay strong, positive and hopeful this spring.
