Fitness Update: Gentle Nudges

5 November 2017

Cycling Nov 2017

Hello hello! As I mentioned last week, I’ve been trying to increase my exercise routine.

If I were to describe my fitness routine – I’d say MINIMAL.

In one week, I do a bit of running, an occasional class, some workouts at home. But that’s about it.

I think about how fit, healthy and strong I was 3-4 years ago and I sigh at how poor my routine is right now.

So yep, no more excuses, I just have to do it.

I don’t have to be an elite athlete. I don’t have to run marathons. I just have to start getting beyond MINIMAL!

I’ve been cycling again. The weather has just been lovely for outdoor activity.

I’ve completed a few 5km – 10km cycles around the river.

And on the weekend, I managed to do a 21km cycle.

It didn’t even hurt. I felt great!

Baby steps are the best way to go!
