Shaping Up in ' 12
Monday, January 09, 2012
Wow, it's been years since I've posted a blog entry on here...YEARS! Wow :) Spark People has always been such a great site, and it's awesome looking back at my journey on here!
I am back on here to basically shape up and prepare myself for two big events I have planned this year: The American Lung Association's Fight For Air Climb on March 10th and the Ride for Roswell race on June 23rd.
I completed the Fight For Air Climb event last year with very little training (you climb 800 steps). I was the top individual fundraiser and I am looking to be crowned the top fundraiser this year too. I would like to get my time down (took me 8:48 last year) to under 8 minutes. I know I can do it, I just need to train properly and get my body conditioned the right away. Which means lots of stair climbing and lots of lower body strength training.
The Ride for Roswell is going to be my big challenge this year. I don't ride bikes normally and haven't for YEARS. As soon as my stair climb event is over I will begin training for the Ride for Roswell in June.
Would love to tone up the body and lose a few lbs. too! But the main goal is to get in the RIGHT shape to complete these events and be successful in them.
Here's to training!
