The last six weeks have been exceptionally unpropitious to exercise! But I hereby announce (is it hubris?) that I think I am back on track.
(A more self-disciplined person than I would have been able to exercise on our Florida vacation, but as it was, all spare hours saw me so sleepy and cold that I could not imagine spending them anywhere other than under the covers!)
I was in good shape at the end of November, but truly have exercised very little since then, not through lack of desire - on the basis of this morning's workout, I will guess that I have maintained some base fitness and should be able to get back into shape pretty quickly, though I am prepared for swimming to feel like a completely alien activity for the next couple of weeks...
Got a ride over to World Gym from Brent, then did a good half-hour on the treadmill: 10 mins. very easy (5.2mph, 11:30/mi.), 10 x (1:00 @ 8:00/mi. [7.5mph], 1:00 easy). 3 miles total - I didn't want to overdo it, so I kept the recovery speed very slow, but I think interval training will be the way to speed up regaining fitness.
Half an hour of lower body, then the 45-minute core strength class.
