My winter goals

I recently wrote a blog about this being MY TIME! I am planning on retiring in May so I can spend more time w/ my DH, daughters, and grandchildren.

My DH and I want to take some hiking/biking vacations, so I need to get in better shape. A few years ago, I was able to do an extreme exercise course "in the trees", but don't have the strength for it now. I would like to be able to do it again and complete more of the course than last time.

I recently wrote a blog about this being MY TIME! I am planning on retiring in May so I can spend more time w/ my DH, daughters, and grandchildren.

My DH and I want to take some hiking/biking vacations, so I need to get in better shape. A few years ago, I was able to do an extreme exercise course "in the trees", but don't have the strength for it now. I would like to be able to do it again and complete more of the course than last time.

So, besides cardio, I need to pump up my ST so I can make my arms stronger. I am also scheduled to do a sprint triathlon and a 1/2 marathon the first half of the year, so I need to bike, swim, run several times a week.

I am ready to take back my life!

Fitness Minutes: 53,236

My Goals:
My goals for winter:

1) bike/swim/run (one or two of these a day) 6 days a week

2) track EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth!

3) Hike 2 times a month

4) spend more time with our grandchildren

5) spend more time with God

My Program:
I have signed up for a sprint triathlon at the end of March, so I need to get busy training. I have a program to follow, but am not always consistent, because of work, home life, etc. However, my goal is to swim 3 days a week, bike 3 days a week, and run/walk 3 days a week. Some of the activities should be done the same day, so I will have a day of "rest" or cross training. I need to find time to stretch and strength train also, because both of these will improve my stamina, my flexibility, and my ability to bike, swim, and run.

Personal Information:
I have been married 38 years, am mother of 3 WONDERFUL daughters, grandmother of 7 grandchildren (4 boys, 3 girls). I am a Nurse Practitioner who cares for the homeless population, doing what I believe God wants me to do. However, it is time to close this chapter of my life; I will certainly miss all the wonderful people I have cared for, but plan on retiring. My DH retired 5 years ago, so it is time for me to spend time with him.


Other Information:
I love to sew and quilt; I am hoping to reorganize my life to work on some unfinished projects, although I am not sure how that will happen. I love to read, but seem to only get time when I am sitting in a waiting room. I usually carry a book in the car "just in case".

I just stopped by because I love the name "Grandmacoo" Well, then I looked at couple picks and read you bio. Wow!!!! I kind of want to be you! I'm heading toward retirement, fractured my back a year plus ago, and gained so much weight and lost so much strength. Reading your page just inspired me to stop whinning and get moving. Thanks!!!! emoticon
