I ran yesterday. I didn't jog. And it felt great! 50 degrees here in New Jersey and it felt like a spring day. I even managed to vacuum out two of our cars and wash one of them in our driveway. I would have taken the bike out for a ride but the roads are still mucky with dirt, mud, salt, sand and other elements that want to destroy my two wheels. So, I did the next best thing: I set her up on the trainer in my basement in what is known as the "Art Room." And tomorrow I shall ride before work.
My new year's resolution was to create a 2010 plan that would encompass all my life goals including working out. I have a drop dead date of getting it done by January 31but it's nearly complete and I will finalize it well before that date for sure. But just in case, the clock is ticking and I have 11 days to finish the final copy.
But isn't it funny that I have to put a workout goal in my 2010 plan? I mean less than 6 months removed from crossing the line at Ironman Lake Placid and I need to write down my workout goals! Yep, that's right. Because it gets harder as you get more involved and go greater distances. The mind fights you all along the way and you need to give your best shot right back. Staying on track with a workout goal(s) requires work and that work requires planning.
