First Step Taken

Thanks to some encouragement from Swim Bike Mom and fear of the humiliation that comes with publicly proclaiming the desire to do something, I've started back into my workouts.

Over the weekend I started back into P90X.  I have to start gingerly at my size and I only do as much as I can without the bad kind of pain.  I already feel better, though.  It's hard to beat feeling your muscles all day, even if no one can actually see them.

Last night I got a great night's sleep, up without the alarm clock at 4:45 and heading out the door with the dog at 5:15.  Got to the end of the street where the dog dropped into potty emergency posture.  Only one freaking cleanup bag left in the dispenser.  Walk Phail.  I'm hoping I've at least turned around the sleep schedule for a while.

Tomorrow is Kenpo and hopefully a nice long walk.  I can't wait!

  1. Congrats on taking the first steps! They're always the hardest. It's amazing how trying to tri and then doing tris changes your life - I've gotten so much more out of it than I ever expected. Can't wait to follow your journey. You're going to rock it out, I just know it!

  3. You've just done what 99.99999% of the population will never do. You got started. You also have the guts to do what I didn't...blog about it. :) I look forward to cheering you on!

  4. Awesome!! The first step always feels like falling off a cliff. Each one after that is a little easier. I LOVE that you already claim ass-kicking in your future! You most certainly rock. Kiss the sky, my friend!

  5. Goofy dog :)

    As a guy whose little brother once proclaimed him "the laziest man in the world", I can honestly tell you there's nothing to make you feel better and give you a sense of yourself as a physical being than a solid dose of triathlon. Be warned it's addictive. But also wonderful :)
