Posting this blog for the BLC18 weekend challenge. I'm supposed to tell you about my transformation in health/fitness/wellness. So here it is...
Every since I was diagnosed with cancer for the yet the third time, my fitness has taken a significant dive. The chemo makes me very tired and doing my marathon training is very much out of the question. I walk, sometimes with the dogs, but even holding their leashes and walking wipes me out. I walk anyway, it is good for my heart and it is good to keep my muscles from atrophy.
I'm getting ready to be put in captivity in the hospital for 100 days minimum for my transplant, so I have to go in as strong as I can, and so I've been trying to do push ups and other upper body strength training that I can do while sitting down, or on the floor, that way I don't have to expend energy keeping myself balanced too.
So much for a transformation, this year was supposed to be the year I get back in shape, and complete my dream of running the Dublin marathon. But I'll just be lucky to make it through the year. The Dublin marathon will be there in years to come.
