So in addition to my garden this summer, I decided to enter yet another 52DC. In short the 52DC stands for 52 day challenge. It is a fitness Challenge where you set a certain number of goals for your health and fitness to be tracked over the next 52 days. Why 52 days? because the person that created this thing said so! It has helped me tremendously with my weight loss (26 lbs in 12 months) and staying on target for my fitness (3 triathlons and 1 1/2 marathon since last summer). It’s fun and challenging.
Funny thing is I wasn’t going to join this challenge. I was feeling burned out. Had enough. Gonna eat and drink and be fat and merry! Then a friend/nemesis on the board fried me like a green tomato (yum! cant wait. I bet my friend TNTMAN has a recipe…..) and I made the decision not only to join but to push myself farther than ever. So the next 32 days will include running at least 75 miles, biking at least 225 miles, 1000 pullups, 1000 pushups, lifting weights and eating healthy.
You know, the push from Matt is really what the 52DC is all about, but don’t tell him I said so…….
