Dear Diary

In here you’ll find a peek into my daily activities (or lack of- rare, but it happens).

Right now I’m training for the Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon October 10, 2010;  in here will be a look into my training as well as what I do on the side of that for strength and conditioning.  Sometimes I’ll choose to count power walks, other days I won’t.  It just depends on how much credit I feel like giving myself and how hard it was for me to get out the door to get them done!

I also believe in active living. You should just move throughout your day on top of your normal exercise- I truly appreciate exercise and believe that my ability to move is a gift (one which I won’t ever take for granted again).

  1. I love the idea of listing your dailyworkouts on your blog. It can be inspiring to others, give them ideas of what workouts they can be doing, and it helps you keep track of what you are doing! I hope you don’t mind if I steal this idea! My workouts are no where as intense as yours, but maybe by posting it to the world will help me bring it up a notch!
