I'm spending a few days with the parents up near San Francisco. It's much colder here than San Diego! It barely reaches 60 during the day! (small violin playing). I've been better about exercising and eating healthfully! Yipee! Last week was my first week back on the wagon (or is it off the wagon?). I ran and weight-lifted 3x. I'm trying to re-introduce my body to exercise. My goal is to work up to doing a little something every day. It doesn't matter what at this point. I can get more workout specific in a few weeks once my body begins to adjust. Right now, running and weights are the easiest. I do them back-to-back and get it all over with. Weights are kind of boring anyway so I just do it afterwards for 30-60 minutes in front of the t.v. I'm just happy I can still run 3-4 miles without dying! At least I can start somewhere!
I've been looking at all the biking, running, swimming, and tri clubs and events in the San Diego area. It's hard not to get overwhelmed. I'm just going to take it one step at a time. There's a little park in our backyard too with a 1/4 mile track, tennis courts, and basketball courts too! Perfect for cross-training. Only 1/2 mile from our apartment is a huge, long canyon with tons of dirt trails for running! And the UCSD campus is perfect for biking and running around--it has a 6-8 mile loop around the perimeter. Oh, there's also the 24-hour gym at our apartment. Plus, I have the bike trainer and weights in the apartment. I'm also signing up for the UCSD gym, which has a TON of facilities, including a HUGE Olympic-sized pool with awesome hours. And, I'll be commuting by bike to and from work so that'll count too! Basically, there is absolutely NO excuse not to get off my butt with so much to do.
