I'm starting to ramp back up with running (finally!) (and I've got to keep it up - our team leader for Hood to Coast Pacific City just sent us an email today! That's coming up in May.), but it's been a slow journey, and I've got to take it carefully from here. In the meantime, I've been trying other things to keep up fitness and mental stability, and, like the rest of life, it's all based in my phone. These are apps I've been using and recommend.
Down Dog yoga - This is photo-based, with algorithmic videos put together. I think the audio cueing is really exceptional for an app - transitions are very smooth. Each workout is similar enough to know what to expect, but varies enough to be interesting. I was using the free version for a while, and it's pretty adequate, though I splurged on an annual subscription for $30 for new year's.
Jillian Michaels - The free options on this one are very limited, but I like Jillian Michaels so I subscribed ($10/month) to do a program. I'm not following the schedule precisely, but it's similar format and intensity to any of her other videos I've done before.
UHC Motion/steps trackers - The app I use specifically is for a step tracker via my health insurance, but I've found any step tracker (previously used a FitBit) is great for motivating me to get more movement in! I'm on a 10,000-step streak since December 30, and it's kept me moving even when it's just been running circles around the living room.
Streaks (habit tracker) - I like quantifying things, so for both exercise and other healthy habits (e.g., taking vitamins), I've found this to be fun! (See also: 10,000-step streak above.) When I couldn't track mileage, at least I could track something!
REI Hiking Project - Actually, to be honest I haven't done more with this app than just log in. I just found out about it a few days ago. But this fall when I was cutting back on running, I decided I wanted to prioritize going on hikes as a family. That's a bit on the backburner now that we're full-on in the rainy season, but I look forward to exploring with this app and doing more in the spring.
