Winter is over and I'm overweight and out of shape. The Susan Komen Race for the Cure in Columbus, OH is just a little more than 2 weeks away and I need to be in shape to run the 5K by then. I decided coming into this week to push myself away from the table and begin exercising more vigorously on the bike path. I've regularly walked 3 miles throughout the winter but have stepped it up to running about half that as I prepare to run the entire distance. Based on my exercise plan I should ready by the 16th. Quite honestly, it feels good to be able to get myself in better physical condition, knowing that others are benefiting from it as well. Anybody else using some sort of crutch or incentive as a stimulus to get yourself into shape this spring?
Ouch! Your resolve hurts me so! It just brings back over and over my uncontrollable laziness! GOOD LUCK!!! :-)))
Actually I am extremely lazy. That's why I gained these extra 15 pounds and have to work my way back to what was easy last fall. But laziness aside, I refuse to grow up and leave all the fun stuff to the young folks. Even pushin' 63 I still enjoy playing kid's games. See this from March in NC...
You daredevil, you! How many times did you break an arm or a leg in your lifetime? That would be zero for me which probably is a good indicator for a sheltered and inactive life. :-)))))
Your post is inspiring! Thanks for posting.
I live in the Northeast, and this winter was brutal. I'm not much of a runner, but I love to bike. Luckily, New York City has added many bike lines over the past few years, so I try to bike at least an hour a day. And today the weather is hitting 70 degrees, so I expect to be outside for several hours!
