What I actually did and let me tell you none of it really looks like a “workout” but I did everything I was supposed to do (and then some!)
Swim 1050 yards – that’s 900 more than I needed to do – first day of swimming class – try not to be jealous of my awesome suit.
Walk 25 minutes
Swim 1050 yards – lessons again
Bike 3.67 miles. I have to admit that I really did not want to go bike riding. I was tired and wanted to lounge around at home. BUT, I roped my dad into going out with me and we managed to catch the sunset over Eden while we were out. “I’ve never regretted a workout.” ~Thank you miss Julie!
Swim 1050 yards
(SUPPOSED TO BE A REST DAY)
Bike 7.5 miles at Gooseberry Mesa, Windmill Loop
16 miles hiking at Zion National Park, Angel’s Landing, The Narrows and The Navajo Loop at Bryce Canyon National Park
Rest day – driving/travel day
5.25 miles hiking at Arches National Park
Since I am still in the early stages of “training” – week 2 of 17 – the workouts are fairly easy to fit into my schedule. What works for me is to sneak in “workouts” like hiking in place of things that seem more boring like “walk 20 minutes.”
As I get into the next few weeks, the schedule gets a bit more tricky – fitting in 20 mile bike rides on the weekends is no big deal but finding the time on week nights is going to be a little more difficult. Life is a practice in balance and flow… continually balancing new goals and desires with responsibilities and commitments.
What keeps you on track – do you make a workout schedule or do you “wing it”?
**For me, winging it means that it’s not gonna happen. I need a plan – a flexible one but a plan nonetheless.
