Welcome to December! I saw a post on Instagram this morning that said:
“December: The month of joy, happiness, and to finish what you started.”
I loved that! We have 31 days left in 2016 so why not capitalize and make them the best 31 yet?
In terms of fitness, why not commit to ourselves to make time for your health this month? It doesn’t have to be dramatic, but ideally, consistent. And with today being December 1st, it is a great day to set up a fitness goal for the month! I will be in it with you.
Some of you may know, I was diagnosed with Mono this past month. I still am perplexed on how I came down with the virus, but regardless it has forced me to stop just about every form of physical activity. Over a month ago I was training for a full marathon and was up to about 12 miles. And then one Saturday went out for a 4 mile. After about 1 mile I started to feel dizzy and light headed and ended up walking home. Super frustrated, I thought maybe I was over training. Long story short here it is a month later and I went from running 12 miles to now I am lucky to get in 30 minutes of walking! What?!
