LiveFit Challenge Week 15: Amy’s Update

Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center employees 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.

Well, another week in, one less to go before the triathlon.  This week was another busy week of training, homework, housework and oh yeah that work for money thing.  We went to a tri expo on Sunday, and in between classes (which were helpful of course) we did a mini-tri.  Yeah to us for fitting in a workout into an already busy day.  We learned about transitions, and how to hopefully master them by organization.  Yikes, that may be a bit of a challenge for me, I’m not much of a planner.  I much rather prefer to fly by the seat of my pants.  We did our first brick workout as a group on Tuesday, and wowsers it’s tricky to get those running legs out after biking.  Hopefully, with some more training, they won’t take so long to transform.  I did, however, learn the importance of taking that ever so precious day off.  Usually Sunday is my off day, but we did the mini-tri.  By Thursday my body was in full fledged revenge mode.

Still waiting for diagnoses for my children, it shouldn’t take so long.  The things that parents see as painfully obvious take so long to get an official diagnosis, in the mean time we just keep on keeping on, waiting and hoping for that diagnosis to get them the help they need.

The semester is winding down now, which is great because the workout time is slowly creeping up….again.  I’m hoping to wrap it up this week so I can have an entire month off before the summer semester starts….what will I do with all that free time?  Until then, I just keep pushing through, one task at a time.  If I think too far out, it is way too easy to get overwhelmed.
