So I’ve been trying to shake things up lately with work outs. I started going to the climbing gym (which I used to do every day almost), which is a great ab work out and arm work out. I’ve also been running trails to get a change of setting, and I joined a co ed soccer team with some friends which hasn’t started yet. On top of that, I need to kick my running into high gear because I’m running a half marathon in a month. I’m feeling like I’m not going to be ready because my running has been less consistent this summer. I’m also on the look out for a new road bike and I want to start doing a lot of biking and hopefully eventually planning a cross country trip (at least 500 miles). Who knows if this will actually happen, but it’s never bad to have a goal!
