If you follow my blog you will know that I got injured in the summer and have been going to physio and trying to recover for a few months now. I’m doing much better now. Obviously my hypermobility is not going to vanish, it’s always going to restrict what I can do in terms of physical activity but over the winter months I really want to start getting fit again.
I’ve set myself a few little goals for December and in January I’ll probably do an update post.
- Go to the gym 4 times a week – That may sound like a lot when you consider I haven’t been to the gym regularly in months and I’ve been injured but I’ll definitely be easing myself in gently.
- Do physio/rehab 3 times a week – Over time I’ve actually found some of my physio to be really relaxing so this is as much about unwinding than it is about physical fitness.
- Walk outside (other than my walk to and from work most days) – Weather permitting, obviously I’m not going to do this when it’s icy and risk injuring myself further, but particularly on bright days I’m going to try and get out for a walk in the middle of the day. Fresh air, day light and movement are a winning combination!
It goes without saying that while I’ve set some loose goals this is meant to be fun and if I’m not enjoying it then I will stop. I don’t want to get sucked in to negative patterns of thinking or forcing myself to exercise ever again.
Do you have any winter fitness goals? Leave them in the comments.
