"If you are coasting, you are either losing momentum or headed downhill." - Joan Welsh
When I first started getting serious about fitness, I discovered that the hardest part is getting out the door. I've told this to others who are trying to start a new habit. And after a few months hiatus, I'm re-learning just how true it is. Right now I feel like I'm coasting, and it's difficult to regain momentum.
- This weekend I thought that I would ride my bike. But it was windy and cold. So I stayed inside instead.
- Last night I thought that I would get up early in the morning and swim. This morning I decided to sleep instead.
- Tonight I should be joining my running group. Now I'm thinking of going to a baseball game instead.
Logically, if I want to have a good experience with the triathlon in August, I need to get serious about riding my bike and swimming. And now that my knee is going better, it's time for me to get back into a rhythm with running. It's good to know that even after a long break, I can get up and run a 5K, but I'd like to run one well and that is going to take some work.
I'm thinking if I can just get a few good workouts under my belt, I'll have the momentum that I need to get myself out the door and get in gear again...
