With the passing of my mono earlier this spring / summer, I had to forgo much in the way of strength-training. I haven't caught up with my primary care doc in a bit, but it sure feels to me that this mono thing was 1) a pretty mild case, as I rarely felt the fatigue that is so characteristic of mono and 2) MUST be resolved by now, as I've been able to do some fairly strenuous stuff such as biking back and forth to nearby towns around 10 miles away.
So...strength training for upper body / core is going to be my focus once I get the go-ahead. I would like to feel less self-conscious about these areas. My legs are doing just fine with all the treadmilling and bicycling I've been doing! :-)
Also I hope to check out cross-country skiing as a replacement for bicycling. We have a county park nearby which leases them during the winter months. Would like to try it a few times and see if it would be something I could enjoy doing on a regular basis.
ps, great topic Daz! Good to look ahead to the colder months and begin to set some goals...!
