I completed my version of a Triathlon today. I walked 3.8 miles on the Henry Hudson Trail (all flat terrain), then came home and swam my laps (gentle breast stroke) and after dinner took out the bike and made a couple laps around my circular driveway.
Not bad for a Lymie who has been almost completely physically inactive for three years. I truly feel like I've turned a major corner, as I am finally able to partake in physical activity. It's baby steps, I know, but feels so much better than being a lump on the couch. I didn't know how much I missed being active, until it was taken away from me.
Of course, the real test comes tomorrow. Will I have the energy and stamina to stay active? Or will climbing the steps feel like I'm climbing a mountain? Stay-tuned.
