I am rebuilding fitness with outdoor workouts after over three months, tough for a seventy plus. Just back from an easy 5 kilometre jog/walk.
I jog/walk for 5 kilometres and cycle at an easy pace for 25 kilometres twice a week for each of these activities and do strength/flexibility workouts thrice a week. This will be my routine in June as I ease into my usual fitness levels and then I will increase the workload. Working out on the same course each time helps me monitor improvements in cardio fitness and recovery. I’ll build endurance as time goes by.
I am doing well so far and happy with the progress.
Super senior 65 + are welcome to join me in this fitness challenge. I would love to share progress with interested enthusiasts game for a challenge.
I want to complete a half marathon whenever such events are possible at a modest timing of 2 1/2 hours or better. We can take part in our respective locations when we can and share and encourage each other. Posting your progress and journey on my Facebook page, Celebrating Active Ageing at this link will encourage everyone who takes part.
My athletic friends, who are senior citizen ironmen and serial marathoners, are way above this modest challenge. I am sure their encouragement and tips and suggestions to all who take up the challenge will be helpful. I know all of them love to encourage others to take part in the thrilling journey of challenging oneself at any age.
