LiveFit Challenge Week 19: Lisa’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.

It is so hard to believe that the big event is just a few days away.  So many things going through my mind.  “Can I do this?”, “What was I thinking?” “What if I can’t do it?”.

I have to admit I have had second thoughts.  Even though everyone around me has been so encouraging, thoughts of doubt go through my head.

My training has not been what it should have been, not like the rest of my 6-packers.  And that makes me very nervous.  With everthing that has been going on in my personal life, from my sister’s cancer and dad’s surgery, I really don’t know what to think.  Tough to know that life does not stop around you to let you focus on your own health.  Emotions are changing all the time from excitement to nervous, confident to scared out of my mind.

I have no idea how I am going to be able to function this weekend.  I am sure sleep will be impossible. Very good info was given to us by Zach Bitter on how to prepare the days before an event, so that should be beneficial.

All I know is that I will not be first and more than likely will be last of my 6 pack – but I WILL finish this race.

Whether you’re a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine’s expertswill put you on top of your game. To start your customized training program, contact us at 920-288-5400.
