So, I am back on the exercise wagon! Granted, it’s a Radio Flyer, but it’s a wagon nonetheless! For quite an extended period of time, working out was my priority before all else. Somehow though, I allowed life’s other tasks to creep to the top of my ever famous ‘to do’ lists. I was still working out consistently, but life’s tasks are stealthy ninjas and eventually, they coordinated a complete and utter takeover.
What I’ve learned after several sedentary months: the first few steps of the journey are the most difficult to take, even when it’s a journey you have been on before. I have a little over a month to prepare for the Special Olympics: Law Enforcement Torch Run; our leg is the longest. Therefore, I have found my most immediate goal to work toward. Tough Mountain is a mere three months away, and so, in addition to honing my cardio abilities again, I must get my other muscles in tip-top condition as well.
Tomorrow will be my first “hard” workout in at least two months! (Not hard in difficulty but hard as in intensity). Who am I kidding though? It is likely going to be all-around difficult because let’s face it, I’m not the machine I was before the winter months settled in.
So, on tomorrow’s agenda:
*3-5 cumulative miles.
*Body weight exercises: squats (weighted), lunges, pull-ups (modified), push-ups (modified), Russian twists (weighted), and sit-ups (weighted). 3 sets: 1st – 20, 2nd -15, and 3rd – 10.
*Wall sits, planks. 2 cumulative minutes.
*Agility ladder drills. At least 5 drills, 10-15 times each.
I shall name this back to business workout … Bobby. As in, “Damnit, Bobby, I’m gonna f*** you up!” Bonus points to whomever names the movie that this quote is from, sans Google! 🙂
