I'm sure many have experienced the problem of not being able to stick with one's fitness goals. It's a common problem. You decide I'm going to go to the gym a few days a week, you stick with it for a week or two, then get lazy. I've dealt with this and have found a way to "trick" myself into sticking with my goals.
Two months ago, I decided to go for a run, something I've been doing during most of the pandemic. What I didn't know was that this run would be the start of what would become a 2+ month running streak.
Four months into the COVID-19 Pandemic, I finally broke down and built a gym in my basement.
One of the things I’ve been trying to do while getting in shape is tracking my progress. Weight is obviously one of the metrics I track, but it’s not the only one.
So last Friday night, I was able to do something that I've been dreaming of for a while. I was able to skate outdoors on an ice rink in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
I guess the one thing I could say that went well this month is that I got my lifts to my previous bests and I got a lot of runs in.
I feel like August was another wash for me. I could never really get into any kind of rhythm with trips to the gym or runs.
This month was pretty much a complete wash. I didn't really progress at all.
