In conclusion June was…
how could it be anything other than awesome! I finished my 365 project in it…which heralded the completion of the overall giant ongoing challenge…in a hugely successful way…
I set myself some challenges in June.
there was the arm challenge and the dumbbell challenge, there were Thor Thursdays and a running challenge.
Well firstly...there was the whole 365 project thing…
did I tell you about that?
ok I did…sorry I’ll shhh!
Well, apart from that, June saw me decide that this health and fitness lifestyle is too big to leave behind after the completion of my original 365, so I have committed to doing it again!
June has seem me try to complete multi-rep challenges (arms stuff and dumbbell stuff) and question why I was doing them. I found them dull and not challenging in the way that I needed.
Maybe I chose the wrong ones…
I found they were not well rounded enough for me at this stage, they were doing nothing to further my quest to become a superhero. They really just made me better at the one or two particular things I was increasing each day. They have their place, and there is a lot to be said for challenging yourself to one of these if you believe it will benefit you.
But for me they are to specific, and did not further my overall goal. Possibly because I knew I could complete them, they were challenging in willpower to do them terms rather than exercise terms.
So I started Insanity…which for me is a huge new challenge!
June saw me consider my running, consider the goals I had set for myself
yeah, I only promised to do exercise to be fair…I never promised to make decisions or do thing s that made any sense at all!!
It is ok though I will save some bears!!
I think what I am trying to say, that even though I didn’t do what I thought I would at the beginning of June, I have a clearer idea of the sorts of things I want to be doing. The sort of challenges I want to be setting for myself. Ones that I find exciting and not ones that I *have* to set.
I am therefore not going to set myself a June specific challenge, but the current ongoing Insanity and half marathon training as well as peak dancing season and a desire to lift heavier weights should keep me going…
