So I’ve been feeling a little stuck lately with my workouts. I am still working out, getting to the gym, going on runs, etc. but I just feel unchallenged lately. And I know why. This is the first time in three summers that I am not training for a marathon, in fact I do not have any race on the horizon at the moment. So what shall I do…triathlons totally freak me out for the swimming part (I would need to invest a lot of time and get a coach). And my bike is in major need or repair (which is on my to-do list…I was at the bike store nearby on Friday).
I’ve been thinking about signing up for a Spartan Run or something a little off-beat as a new challenge, but I am not sure yet. I know that I am strong but just how much upper body strength do I need to accomplish the obstacles? I’ve been focusing more of my workouts on my arms, chest and back so if I up it a few notches I’m sure I would be ok. There is nothing more that I hate than when people make fun of my “little” muscles or tell me I’m so tiny. Try me-I could probably out bench you! And let me tell you…this girl has muscles after all this last month or so from moving and carrying boxes, furniture and rugs around.
So what have you done when you needed a new physical challenge? I am up for suggestions! And if anyone is interested in doing an event together that would certainly help in the motivation department.
