First of all, I'd like to invite you to pull up a chair (or stretch out on a yoga mat) and join me for some chatter. There's a few things I'd like to discuss...
Let's start with 2018 Goals. It's a brand new year and most people use this time to make positive changes and set some new, year-long goals for themselves. I respect that rhetoric, but I'm of a different train of thought. An entire year is simply too long for me to be focused on one thing.
For example, January. One focus is daily cardio (a minimum of 20 minutes), whether it's walking, running, stair-climbing, or even basic calisthenics. I will still be running, but not very far or fast, and certainly NOT daily. Another big focus will be to rejuvenate my strength training.
This week, I wrote a new lower-body circuit session, and it was tougher than I anticipated! Take a look:
Lastly, I do have a word in mind for 2018...Reality. How's that sound? I have learned, no matter how lofty any goals are, there will be some unforeseen challenges and roadblocks thrown at me. There may be undesirable weather, unfortunate injuries, or the influx of too many other commitments that take precedence. That's not all bad, but it's reality. Instead of dwelling on the stress that may arise, I am hoping to cope with whatever I'm dealt...and then move on.
Anyways, that is what's happening in my little world as I enjoy my (running) off-season. How has your new year been so far? Is 2018 off to a great start for you?
