Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center have embarked on a wellness challenge that will change their lives forever! Over the next six months, these people will be coached, trained and transformed into triathlon-level athletes through the Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Live Fit program.
Amy Fischer shares her week 3 triathlon training results:
“This week, I am having a divide and conquer take on life. I am feeling more inspired, surprising myself with every workout. I go into a workout thinking, ‘ I’ll never be able to do such a task,’ but then I push myself. This past week I ran for 20 minutes at 5.5 MPH. That’s less than an 11 minute mile, and a 10 minute mile was my average in high school. This was a huge accomplishment for myself!
That stubborn scale finally moved down again this week also!!! As Linda says, “I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard for 2 stinking pounds.”
As for the divide: taking on this challenge, I realized how much time this would take. I have people around me who did not understand my time would be so consumed, and those are the people I need to not let bother me. I do enjoy doing fun things every now and then, but with my time being so spoken for, my family comes first, and needs to continue to do so.
I am thankful for the support from my husband, because without his support there would be no way I could take on such a challenge with three kids. Homework, housework, packing lunches….he is definitely carrying the weight on these daily tasks.
I am very thankful to have such strong support in my life. These are the type of people I need to surround myself with!”
