6 Months and Counting

OMG, IMMT is in 6 months!!!!  I am glad week 2 went better then week 1, sort of.  I missed my Thursday swim practice due to work commitments but the rest was done.  I had an issue with my long run on Sunday, I managed 13.4K before a muscle issue caused me to throw in the towel.  I spend 90 mins on my tri bike on Saturday, 2/3 of it in aero position and my right leg did not like it, not one bit.  I went to yoga last night and put heat on it and it seems better today so we will see. Next week I will go back to double spin classes on Saturday and then try the tri bike again.  I really need to work on that so I am use to it once I can get outside. Otherwise I am happy with how the week went.

I am great at doing all the cardio on my training plan, where I fall down is my strength training, I just don't do any, I know I need too but it just does not happen.  As I sit here typing this tonight I am suppose to go to the gym for a power bar class with friends and I am trying to justify not going.  Yes I have work to do and tons of ironing to do but they are not pressing, they are an excuse.  Last week three great stories popped onto my newsfeed talking about excuses and I knew the universe was sending me a message, time to stop making excuses and just do it.  I know I need to do it, I know I should want to do it but I still make excuses.

So I am not going to let my excuses be bigger then my dreams, I will go to the gym tonight, I will do strength training twice a week and I will use the hand-weights in Zen cycle on Saturday morning..YES I WILL.  I will do PIYO twice a week and a core workout after every run...YES I WILL.

I also need to start watching my nutrition and food, tighten up and less cheating, less wine and less carbs.  This will be harder but I can and will do this as well.  I need to put in a great effort, I need to put away all my excuses and I need to put on my big girl panties and just do this because the next six months will pass and I can be ready or not.

  2. How are you doing with PiYo? I've only done the intro and the upper body.
