I was all set to shake up my fitness routine in 2011. Yup. I did a little research into what might help make me a better runner.
All the evidence pointed to core strengthening.
I did a little more research. More evidence pointed to losing a few pounds.
Which I totally enjoyed the benefits of when I ran the marathon, the 10 miler and the 5K at my lightest weight in years. If 5 pounds makes THAT huge of a difference, imagine what another 5 pounds would do? So, how do I lose a few pounds... Aha! Strength training.
So I poked a friend about her workout, and, through the randomness that followed found a group workout that is 9 minutes away from my house, at a time of day I like to workout (sure, 5:30 IS the best time of day isn't it?), and I know one of the women who does this group looks like... well... you know my joke about becoming a victoria's secret model when I "grow up"? Yea, pretty much like THAT. And because I'm married I'll refrain from commenting about the appearance of the guy I know who does the class - but I think that probably says enough.
Anyway - I was ALL set to go, looking forward to it, and immediately, I got sick.
And then a week later, I got all my childhood vaccinations re-done for Nursing School - and felt too funky and sore the next morning to try out a new program.
So here we are - several weeks later. And no new fitness routine has been attempted.
This morning was going to be THE DAY. No excuses. None. Yea. Tell that to the 1/4 inch of ice all over my car, driveway and roads (causing a cancelation of the workout group).
Excuses are for wimps.
SO next week... there will be no freakin' excuses.
Unless it snows.
