So far I have done something active every single day and I am loving it. I feel great and my body is really starting to crave activity. I feel more energized and am starting to feel stronger even though I haven't done any strength training yet.
This goal will also help my body get accustomed to triathlon training in the spring and summer. Even if I am only going for a walk with my dog, knowing that I am moving and not just sitting around will really help me gain confidence going into heavier training.
So far, this is what I have been up to in January:
- January 1: walk
- January 2: 30 min bike, 1.5 mile run, walk
- January 3: 2 x 800, walk
- January 4: 30 min bike, 10 min run, walk
- January 5: skiing
2012 is all about being healthy for me and doing what is best for my body. I know being more active will keep my body running smoothly.
