Tomorrow I will start my journey to get Stronger – Day 1. It is an eight week challenge and is the best way I can think of to get back into shape. A little less than a year ago I was training for my first half marathon. I was in the best shape of my life – running three to four time each week after a targeted weight routine. Then I developed stress fractures in both shins. No walking, no biking, and no running. It was terrible. By the time I was able to start running again, I could barely run a mile without gasping for breath. My legs cramped up and it felt as though I had weights strapped to my feet.
Since then I have been plagued by several annoying injuries caused by poor form, not warming up, not stretching correctly, and not multi-training. You name it, I’ve done it. Now it’s time to do this the right way. From the beginning. Slow and steady, with hard work and sweat.
The Stronger series was created by Live Strong and contains ten different workouts. The first five of the routines are done for four weeks before moving on to the final five, more advanced, workouts. The trainer, Nicky Holender, was a pro soccer player and definitely brings his A-game for this series. It’s time to get Stronger!
I can’t wait to start tomorrow!
