I did it. Today I completed the 10,000 swing challenge. I finished up with an 800 swing workout, which took me 40 minutes. I sort-of followed a workout from Tracy Reifkind's book, The Swing. I needed more rest than she gave, plus I had to add 10 to make it 800.
I'm glad I did the month. I needed a goal this month. I haven't wanted to do any races, and with my back issue I couldn't just restart BeSlam, so this got me through. I feel like I completed something, and now I'm ready to move on.
I'm still unsure what I'm going to do. I did just get bands to help with pull-ups. I want to improve my upper body and core strength, so push-ups, pull-ups, as well as other core work is in the plan. I don't want to give up on running, or yoga, so I'll have to work it out. I think I'll need to not be so type A about it all, so that I can just do what I enjoy. My goal has been my health, both physical and mental, so I need to keep doing the things that I like and make me feel good.
