UPDATE: 30 Day Quest was originally a separate web site, now merged into AI: Alan Intelligence.
Where do I start?
In May of last year (2021), I snapped the Patellar Tendon on my left knee, clumsily falling down some stairs while traveling. After surgery, my recovery was delayed by some massive COVID-19 vaccine verification reporting work, followed by winter, and then hernia surgery this past June (2022).
Saying I was out of shape is an understatement.
So, after the hernia surgery, as soon as I was allowed to ride my bicycle, I started “30 Days of Cycling.” Most was outdoors, but I also had my trusty NodicTrack Exercycle in the basement for when weather or convenience dictated indoors.
After completing that, I signed up for group circuit class at The Athlete District, completing my fourth week last Thursday. Every class, especially the first ones, reminded me just how of shape I was (and still am). I had been missing so many muscles in my exercising.
Where is this all leading? Well, my goal for this summer (kicked off with the 30 Days of Cycling) was to again be able to ride my bicycle to Byers Country Store and back (which Apple Fitness told me is around 14 miles round trip).
Guess what I did this past Sunday, September 4, 2022!
You…yes you…can do anything for 30 days. I did, and although I have a long way to go, I am on a road to physical fitness. I plan on doing other 30 day personal challenges, because I can do anything for 30 days.
And you…yes you…can too!
Do you want to lose weight? Get in shape? Read more? Start learning an instrument? <Fill in your goal here>?
Then, lock up all your excuses and see what type of habit you can develop in 30 days.
And then please let me know how it went!
