7/15/15 – Workout Proof

No Workout Proof for me today. My left knee is really bothering me and I’m paying attention to my body and chose not to run. However, I still “worked out”. I sanded all my cabinets and applied 3 coats of paint. Let me tell ya, that was a pretty good upper body workout!       Keep Moving,

7/14/15 – Workout Proof

Workout Proof 7/14/15 – Because life does interfere sometimes, I spent the majority of my day in the process of redoing my kitchen – stripping and refinishing cabinets, prepping for wainscoting, painting, etc, so I didn’t get as many steps in across the morning as I generally do. BUT, no excuses, my daily goal remains 15,000, so I left my house around 7:00 and hoofed downtown and across the Casco Bay Bridge. Total distance was just under 7. Total for the day – 19,783 steps and 8.16 miles. … Read more…

7/13/15 Workout Proof - Colette

Tonight was miserable, plain and simple, it was just miserable. The ball of my left foot is really sore because I did 7+ miles yesterday in the wrong sneakers, so I had that to contend with, but in all honestly, my head just wasn’t in it tonight. The other issue I keep coming up against, and NEED to formally address, is finding an appropriate and structured training plan that I can follow. I need to figure out what my goals are, then go from there. But, 4 more … Read more…

Hitting Goals and Staying Focused!

Hitting Goals and Staying Focused

Boy HOWDY, we are off and running here at 6 miles daily and I couldn’t be more excited. AND thrilled for the push that Colette is giving me to finally get this going. She keeps apologizing, mostly because she has absolutely no idea what it takes on the back end to make a functional website actually function (her words). But it’s also a good thing because up until we did this thing together, she really had no idea what it is I DO for a living. So I’m … Read more…

Colette - Workout Proof 7.11.15

Workout Proof 7/11/15 – I’m not an exercise physiologist, not a trainer, I just kinda run what I run. So, today that’s just what I did, I got on the treadmill and did intervals again – my walk was 4.0 for a minute and my run was 6.0 for 3 minutes. Then because I had time, I did hill repeats for 10 minutes. Total run – 3 miles. Keep moving,

Colette - Workout Proof 7.12.15

Workout Proof 7/12/15 –  I held off as long as possible, it was ridiculously hot and humid today!!  But, I managed to finish a walk/run of 7.41 miles.  I was hot, I was sweaty, I was downright disgusting, but I was also crazy happy I got it done. Keep moving,

Doing 6 Miles Daily

Doing 6 miles daily

C (that’s short for Colette, which I find difficult to type out, I’ll explain that further along…) mentioned the other day (I’ll be starting lots of posts in much this same manner and with a terrifically conversational tone, too…) that she keeps forgetting that it’s: 6 miles daily. Not a 6 mile work out. But 6 miles total. Daily. Great point, my friend. Perhaps, we should tell the folks about my concept in a little more detail. Because doing 6 miles daily may seem like a lot. Especially … Read more…

Workout Proof – What is It and Why It Matters to Me

Work Out Proof

I’m a behaviorist by profession and a data nerd by choice, so documentation is key for me. So… I do Workout Proofs.  Workout Proofs came about because I was working with a trainer who believed this kind of “data” would track progress and help develop future training plans. Workout Proofs are simple, just a quick note to document my workout.  The content of each Workout Proof can vary, but I choose to include the details of the workout itself, and a pic if possible.  (I actually love going back … Read more…

Welcome to 6 Miles Daily dot com

Colette Running

I read once that Will Smith believes you only have to (run) do 6 miles a day and you can then eat anything you want and… Hmmm. I read that and what I “heard” were a couple things: run 6 miles a day… The fabulous C, getting in her steps. …well I can’t/won’t/shouldn’t (it’s not really good for all your joints and whatnot) to run… …and… I can eat anything I want… So I did. Forgetting that I should at least try and move those 6 miles a … Read more…
