The exercise week in review

I'm getting back into my exercise routine, and I thought I'd try to update weekly on how it's going.

Goal #1: finish the half-marathon at the Fargo marathon in May. More to come after, but for now, that's what I'm setting my sights on.

I'm actually riding my bike as I'm writing this. This is usually late for me to be exercising (I prefer the morning), but I think this is a good sign.

See, I thought about skipping. But I didn't. I decided that I didn't care if it was 9:30, I was going to STICK with it.

So the good news is that I have done my exercise this week, the first week of the plan.

There is one but...

Part of my plan is to be doing some swimming. I have decided to put the swimming on the backburner due to lack of a cheap, easily accessible pool. I'm going to have to figure out what to do around April, but I figure this is one area where I can probably wait a bit.

So my plan is to ride bike 2x per week as if I were training to do a sprint tri in May as well as walk twice per week as if I were doing a half-iron. In reality, the actual goal is the half-marathon. I can't handle walking six days per week, like most half-marathon training plans recommend. I like cross-training. The goal is to finish, and that's all I'm worried about.

Week 1 is finished with 100% of biking and walking workouts complete. Woot!
