OT - Quarantine 15 fitness plan
Warning - this post is going to be over the top optimistic. I'm in a great mood.
Like just about everyone else I know, lockdown has kicked my previously healthy and lean butt. Lack of motivation to exercise and a crap diet have caught up to me, and I'm a little squishier than I'd like to be. I'm a cyclist and a runner, but I haven't had the motivation to cycle at all in months, and running right now would be ROUGH. I needed something new.
So I bought rollerskates. Super retro inspired, pastel colored, pro rollerskates. With matching safety gear. I've finally been able to go outside with them and it's the most delightful workout I've ever done. I watched a ton of tutorials on how to glide, stop, and even how to fall. Today I went outside for the first time and skated for almost two hours on the beach path. It was fun as hell, and even though my shins hurt like crazy, I'm going out again tomorrow. And the next day. I'm going to shoot for one hour per day of pure skating JOY.
It really doesn't matter how much weight I lose, really. I'm just glad I found something that makes me want to work out and get sweaty after all this lockdown gloominess.
Has anyone here discovered something new that you're suddenly passionate about? Maybe you can inspire me to try something else new!
