That’s true. It’s my first real workout in 60 years.
That may be a bit of a misnomer. I’ve done a lot of cycling, hiking, and other things in my 60 years on this spinning ball, but I’ve never met with a professional to work out a plan to get healthy again.
I’ve got a plan to alternate workouts between strength training and cardio training. My initial goals are weight loss and better general overall health with an aim towards doing a lot more cycling this summer. An added benefit is that as the weight comes off, my ankle and knees will become less painful when I walk, and I can enjoy that more.
This morning was my first strength training workout, 45 minutes of circuit training. To say I’m exhausted is an understatement, but I’m happy and I feel like I’ve accomplished something early on a Monday morning!
