I was successful last week! I stuck to 3 trainer sessions, 3 pushups sessions, and 3 situps sessions. I even got a run in. Certainly nothing like last year, but it's a solid start.
And because of it, I do feel better all around - mentally and physically. I feel fresher, calmer, and prouder.
And I've done more pushups in one week than I've probably done all my life. :)
I'm hoping for more of the same this week, and start to get some strength work on the bike. If the weather holds, I'd like more runs as well. There's been a lot of melting this week, so instead of dealing with lots of snow and slush, it's switching to puddles and ice. If I do run this week, it won't be fast or strenuous. No need to start the year with a broken ankle.
