just before the raisingdc year i was in pretty good shape. i was training pretty hard for the triathlon season. in fact, the weekend after the girls moved in i won a third place ribbon in a sprint distance tri (it might have more to do with my competition than anything.) but soon there after parenthood made training impossible: actually it made everything else impossible. we ate different because we had to please a teenage pallet and we had to make more food on the same budget. i quite exercising all together. the combo turned me soft: super soft.
dianna and i set out on a quest to take out bodies back, but for some reason that quest is quite elusive. i am still working on it. it is funny how once you get out of the habit of working out, it is really a choir to get back into the swing of things. so... my goal for now is consistancy. i am trying to come up with a daily exercise schedule that is fun and that i will commit to. i haven't quite hit the perfect balance. some things are clear:
- i must work out with friends the majority of the time -- getting out of the door is the hardest part for me. having a friend that i have to get out the door for really really helps (so friends in dc, this is a call for workout buddies)
- i need a real regimine. i just do better if i know that every wednesday i swim, etc.
- some workouts have to be short
if you decide to do the push ups training program, let me know. it will be more fun to have training buddies.
