All right, so it’s time to look at the exercise program again. My wife’s probably going to keep running consistently, but my recent “hard” row reminded me of how much I like it when I’m taking it seriously. So I may wind up doing it a bit more… aggressively than previous. And more often.
Past successes: I think the best shape I’ve been in was when I was doing a combo of running, weights and rowing. So why not try to repeat that? I’m keeping an eye on for-sale groups for cheap weights, and will be trying to rebuild myself into a decent set of free weights over the next few months.
It’s — again — a question of avoiding my historic problem of overdoing it. Get to a point where I’m pushing myself, but don’t kill myself. Call it the anti-Crossfit. Slow, steady gains with no injuries.
Taking an hour to sit down and work out a real, functioning plan is basically my weekend goal… keep the long runs, get some strength training going, more rowing.
Exercise is back on track post-cold, diet is pretty okay, and sobriety is good, so I’m comfortable pushing out in this area.
