My favourite time of the year is Spring.
After a long and cold winter I love to watch the snow melt and get back to training outdoors.
Additionally, I just really enjoy getting back on my bike to commute to and from my gym.
Longer days and warmer temperatures. What’s not to love about this time of year in Ottawa.
Personally, I find the period of April to the end of June to be my most productive and enjoyable time when it comes to physical activity.
So what is my goal for the coming three months?
Will I train in the hopes to race in some 100 and 200 metre sprint events like last year?
All I know is I want to get away from the gym and get outdoors.
I tend to gravitate towards track based training because I can do them when they fit in to my schedule and they are an excellent way to lose body fat and improve overall fitness.
I did sprint triathlons for a few summers in the past, but the time commitment is just not realistic at this point in my life. Business, kids, and family does not leave large blocks of training time over the course of a week.
How about you?
Do you have a goal for the coming three months?
My advice is to establish some goals and then dedicate time in to your weekly schedule where you commit to working towards them.
Just saying, “I’m going to go the gym more”, is not really a concrete goal.
Saying, “I want to lose 10 lbs of body fat”, or “I want to run a faster 400 metres”, is a goal that will more likely have you stick to your plan.
Sit down, write out some goals, establish a start and end date, plot out a plan, and get going.
Need help? Let me know and I can help you.
I’ll post my goals before the end of March.
Have a great Sunday.
