We can’t sit still for long. This week marks the beginning of something new on the training/recovery front.
Beginning this week I’ll be working with Nick on his daily workouts instead of him going to a trainer. Actually, today will be his last day with his trainer, then it’s GO time at home with me.
For the last two months Nick has been inconsistent. In fact, ever since he ended Project Walk, he’s been slackin’ a little. (sorry honey) Now, don’t get me wrong, he’s been WAY more active on a daily basis by just walking everywhere, skydiving some, and doing more of his daily activities himself. He’s definitely been pushing himself in life, just not in the gym. He’s taken a lot of days off from hardcore training or pushing himself on the treadmill or stationary bike. No more.
He has a date with me now five days a week where we will push him through a workout that we design together each morning. Some days we will work weights, some days we’ll work on cardio endurance. Yesterday’s leg routine practically killed him. Oh I’m so pleased.
He wants to enter a 5k in April, and do a portion (or two) of a Challenged Athletes triathlon in August. Training has begun!
Last night Nick took a quick trip to Lowe’s for some “honey do’s” and ended up motivating a young worker who is out of shape and wants to get back into running to lose weight and eventually skydive.
Work with what you’ve got. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, do leg and arm lifts. Just move your body somehow. Use it or lose it.
