I have decided not to bore all of you with my positives for each day, but I still write them down. It does help me realize that each day has something to be grateful for, even if it is small.
On other fronts, I am consistently working out each week. I am now two months into a strength training program that I do 2-3x a week. I never thought that I would be doing assisted pull-ups, dips, overhead presses, squats and a range of strength and core exercises. I hope that this helps me to keep my strength up, even though running has not been going so hot. I also started back to indoor rock climbing. The only sport where you feel every bit of lost strength. Paul and I climbed yesterday and I assumed that with all of my strength exercises I would be bounding up the 54 ft, 10 ft pitch indoor wall...ha. I was so pumped (a term climbers use for when your muscles turn rock hard and your veins poke out from exhaustion), but it was good. I was happy to get a chance to do this again. Paul was feeling pretty weak as well, so at least I could not blame it on the MS, it really was just not climbing recently.
I have not gotten into the pool in a while and I won't until my rec center starts their triathlon training March 7. At this point I am trying to stay above the dry skin that is caused by consistent 0 - 20 degree weather and chlorine just adds to the dry skin issues, so I am happy waiting out until winter is almost done. I have my bike on a trainer and have managed at least one workout a week...not great, but I have a hard time motivating myself on something that keeps you in one place. ;)
