Martha’s post and Sam’s autumn plans

Martha posted this week about the challenge of keeping fitness a priority when winter hiberation calls. I share her pain and her worry. It’s too dark to bike after work already and too cold to ride before. There’s only so much indoor exercise a person can take. I wrote a short comment on her post and then realized I had more to say.

This is halfway between a long comment and its own blog post. LOL.

Like Martha, come fall I need some motivation. The 219 in 2019 group has been good for that. I blew by the 219 goal at the end of September and now I’m at workout number 227. There are 83 days left in the year. If I hold to my commitment to workout 300 times in 2019 that’s working out all but 10 days for the rest of the year. Can I do it?

November is my worst fitness month but not this year, I guess. What’s my plan?

I do a TRX class at the university one day a week. I do a spin class once a week. Personal training with weights once a week. I bike commute most days and when knee is feeling okay, I take walks. (On my way of counting my short bike commute plus a walk counts as one workout.) Come October 23rd I plan to return to indoor riding on Zwift at the Bike Shed. I’ve got a 7 pm date to drop off my bike and get riding.

For now I’d like to get a few more outdoor rides in on the weekend, head to my discount gym with my son some evenings, and find a good at home thing I can do when all else fails. Yoga? Planks? Something!

What’s your fall plan fellow fit feminists?
