"Legs Do It!" Challenge - Schedule for 2/1 - 2/6

I announced a few days ago that I would be participating in the "Legs Do It!" challenge 'sponsored' by Fit This Girl. Well it starts today... and I realized when I woke up this morning that I hadn't yet set up my schedule for the week of what I am going to commit to do! So here is my commitment to my legs this week:

Monday (Today): Sculpt
I am going to be having a beverage with one of the girls from our youth group tonight, but after that I am going to head over to Planet Fitness and do some sculpting. Since this is my first sculpting go-round, I'm going to keep it light and do:
  • 30 lunges
  • 30 jumping jacks
  • 15 calf raises
  • 10-15 minutes on the Stairmaster
Tuesday: Stretch
I am going to try out this Yoga video early in the AM before work that Fit This Girl (whose name is Mary, so I will just call her Mary from now on) has posted on her site. It's about 45 minutes long, so I'll need to make extra sure that I start it right at 5:30 or 6:00 AM to be sure I have enough time to do it before work.

Thursday and Saturday: Strengthen
I have a strength routine that I do at Planet Fitness that I need to be better about doing (since I'm not doing it regularly). This includes 3 sets of 10-12 reps on about 5-6 different machines that target different muscle groups on my legs. I am committing to make sure I do a lower-body weight routine on both Thursday and Saturday. This means I have to make darn sure I'm up and at 'em early on Thursday morning... which may be difficult, but I know I can do it.
I'm pretty excited about the next 4 weeks of this, and hope that I am able to develop some good habits by incorporating some leg-specific exercises into my routine. Of course I'll continue with my running and elliptical work, and hopefully getting to more Zumba! classes as well.
