Slice of Life- Day 1
One of my resolutions this year was to run 500 miles in 2014. I joined the #500in2014 group on Twitter. I even enlisted two friends to help keep me on track and focused during this journey. January went well. I ran a little more than I needed to average for the month. Then February hit. I developed a stress fracture in my tibia. Talk about disappointment. 6 weeks minimum of no running. I was told I could bike and swim. I'm not a swimmer so that was out. I have biked, but because I was bummed about not being able to run, I didn't bike either. I think I was in a little bit of a work-out depression. Maybe I was just being stubborn because I couldn't do what I really wanted to be doing.
But today is a new month. I have decided that I am going to get out of that rut. I went to the gym this morning and biked for 35 minutes.
I am also going to participate in the Ultimate Upper Body 30 Day Challenge. I am not an upper body person. In fact, I hate upper body workouts because I know I am weak in that area. However, I did complete the first day of the challenge after biking this morning and I survived.
So while February was not a good fitness month for me, I will not let March become a fitness flop. I am going in like a lion and I intend to end like a lion!
