Since finishing the challenge last month I can't help but notice a rather disturbing habit has started to form. I can't get through a day without exercising.
Seriously if I don't get out and train in one form or another I feel really bad about it. This morning saw me driving the 6 miles to Westport Lake by 7am. in a blooming snow storm just to exercise for an hour and a half, and yesterday I exercised morning and evening.
My big worry is that as I get fitter and lighter and start to jog / run I'm going to be one of those people who sets the alarm for 6am does 10k before breakfast and ends up totally addicted.
It's going to be even better / worse from Monday as the gym reopens and it's 24/7. I've already got Mon night / Tues morning planned out with 3k mix of jog/walk on the treadmill, then a 20k bike followed by a 2k row.
The family just don't understand it and I can't really explain it to them in fact I can't explain it to myself, is it psychological or physical? and why is it happening?
Don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying it and the benefits to my health but when I'm asked why after years of being sedentary I suddenly have a desire to exercise I have no defining answer.
