“My successes came early as I was able to exceed my numbers in pushups and planking minutes”
- What were your reasons for accepting the Lean for Life Challenge?
This is my fifth challenge, and I asked myself that question at the beginning of the 90 days. The reasons I took this challenge was to continue focusing on my overall fitness journey, to make sure, as I started training for a marathon, that I am strong all over and not just my legs, and to keep surrounding myself with likeminded awesome people.
- What were your successes, obstacles, life changes, etc. during the Challenge?
My successes came early as I was able to exceed my numbers in pushups and planking minutes. My obstacles came when I started nursing some injuries from overuse when I added longer and longer runs to my overall regimen. I had to work through mental and physical changes and challenges to stay positive and make good choices for my overall health and to make sure I meet my running goals. The goals I had for this challenge had to be modified to meet my running goals. Thankfully I have Jennifer to help me move past the disappointments and really focus on the bigger picture. With her help and support, I have been able to rework my definition of success and stay on track.
