It occurred to me that because I don’t provide daily updates on my Year of Sweat progress that, perhaps, you might just wonder if I’m actually still on track with my goal of every day workouts.
When I began this blog I made the decision that I would write about the things that were important to me: a spectacular hike, overcoming a long-standing fear, discovering something new about myself, things that scare me, or move me, or make me giggle […along with a whack of other inane things].
I knew I didn’t want to make this a daily exercise [no pun intended] of “Here’s what I did today” as proof of my commitment to the journey measured in the specifics of my sweaty endeavours. So I have not, aside from the several posts about hitting a personal best on a run, or finding a great fitness class, or the details of a breathtaking hike, shared specifics of my daily exploits, of the physical variety.
In retrospect, I see that had I kept a running tally [again, no pun intended] of what exercises I had done each day of this journey, that would have been a really cool thing to look back on at the end of the year. If for nothing else than to see just how much more I’m capable of now versus at the start. <sigh> Live and learn.
With that said, starting this coming Monday, I will be providing a once-a-week summary of the previous week’s physical activities, broken out by day. These posts will be super short / bullet format, and centered on the facts and figures. There won’t be a lot of room for humor or deep thoughts [and that’s fine…not the intended purpose of these posts]. These weekly summaries will offer an at-a-glance view of how each week, from here on in, panned out.
As I reflect on this, I’m actually pretty bummed I didn’t think to do it earlier.
But in case absolutely no one (apart from me) gives a flying Fluggen-klingin-kien [bonus points for anyone who gets that reference] as to what my daily workouts look like, then I’ll make it super simple to identify those posts so you can just ignore them. 🙂 Each post will have a title starting with “Weekly Summary”. If you see that title, and you don’t care, just don’t click on the link.
For those of you do have interest in the specifics about what makes me sweat, you’ll be able to pick up those details in a post of less than 100 words (I’m guessing).
I hope that these might provide some inspiration for you to get your sweat on, too. 😉
