Getting back on track

Monday, August 25, 2014

This summer has been a real challenge between grief and back injury. I lost my inertia, and for the last few weeks just haven't managed to do anything. So I decided that this week was going to be me getting back on track.

I got up this morning a bit later than I'd intended--but at least I'd slept well! I'd wanted to be out the door to the pool by 9, but it was actually a little after 10. For a moment I thought about letting it go, but instead I jumped up, yanked on my suit, threw a pair of gym shorts and a tank over it, grabbed my pool bag and headed out.

Things I remembered:
1. Goggles
2. Swim cap
3. Heartrate monitor

Things I forgot:
1. Flip flops
2. Underwear for when I changed

When I realized this, I thought briefly of running home. But then I realized that if I did, I'd probably never get out of the house again. So I went ahead and swam, then just came home "commando." It was a good swim, and I feel like I started the week right!

    I'm glad you went for the swim. It's so easy to give up when conditions are perfect - I've been doing that a lot recently.

Let's hear it for a good way to start the week!

    Good for you! It's too easy to come up with excuses and putting off working out, whatever the form. Kudos to you for sticking to it and starting off your week on the right foot!
