In our county school has already started. I can’t believe that school is back in session and that summer is winding down. I know the calendar says there are a few more weeks of summer, but for me, when school starts back – it’s over.
We didn’t travel anywhere this summer, but we did enjoy some great family time. We swam in our above ground pool, tried to keep the garden weeds away (unsuccessfully) and built lots of Lego castles.
I had set some fitness goals for myself this summer. I really wanted to commit to strength training with my Gym in a Bag, with my stability ball and using my body weight for exercises like planks and push-ups. I am still horrible at the push-ups, but the planks are coming along.
I also wanted to cross-train on the bike in case I ever wanted to do a small triathlon. I did okay with the bike, but riding on the road scares me. That forces me to stay in the neighborhood which is pretty flat. I need to either get over my fear of road riding or give up on that goal.
I think all in all I’d give myself a “B” on achieving my summer fitness goals. I didn’t get it all done, but I didn’t let it all go either.
Did you set any summer fitness goals? How did you do? Diane
