I have to admit – sometimes it’s hard for me to remember a time when I worked out five or more days a week. That person who appeared in Fitness Magazine? Seems like it must have been another woman. But it was me.
Life has changed. Priorities have changed. Time is at a premium. But I do miss that part of me.
It’s time to start making it a priority again. I’m signed up for a few races in the fall – including an Olympic distance triathlon and a half marathon. Yikes.
The next race on my calendar? A sprint triathlon on August 31. Guess that means I should finally get pedals for the bike Meghann gave me (before she takes it back as she has threatened to do.)
I need to come up with a training plan – and actually stick to it. For now, my goal is to run Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Then maybe I could add a bike ride on Saturday mornings? Swimming will be a little bit more difficult as I don’t have access to a lap pool – although the ocean is about two miles away.
Have any of you tried to restart a fitness plan after being pretty much sedentary for a while? I’ve been running about once a week (only about 2 miles) but I definitely need to step it up!
