2017 is going to be hard. It’s going to be work. And it’s going to be lit.
This weekend, an amazing thing happened. A movement began.
And so did my 2017 fitness plans, haha.
It feels trivial to talk about running when there are more important things to be done and said and chased after. But I believe there are parallels in putting in the work to better yourself and putting in the work to bettering the world.
On Thursday, I did a MuscleFit class at the YMCA. One 2017 goal down.
On Friday, I did a yoga class. It was boy band themed. I stretched and laughed and had a great time. It was one of the best yoga classes I’ve done in a long time, thanks to the soundtrack but also thanks to the challenging and clever sequences put together by the instructor, Heather Gardner of Tribe Fitness.
On Saturday, I was too sore to move. Ah, the re-set of fitness after a recovery period.
On Sunday, I ran for the first time since Dopey. It was at the Running Room, it was 8k and it was relatively easy. The more important thing I did on Sunday, though, was purchase and commit to the advanced 10-week NYRR half-marathon training plan. I used this system for NYC and I loved it. The plan begins on February 28th, so my plan is to get back into a fitness and running groove so on the 28th I can hit the ground running. The advanced plan is intense – it has me running 6 days a week and the slowest pace is 5:45.
But if you want to see change, you have to put in the work.
So let’s get to work.
