Tue, 7 Sep – Tue, 14 Sep
So I started my fitness journey. I’ve never had to do this before. A fit body always came naturally to me. I did track and field all through school and lived a pretty active lifestyle. But when COVID hit, I gained so much weight from being indoors and it was a real eye opener.
My biggest struggle was my lack of motivation.
I just felt sedentary and just didn’t have the motivation to be active. This was a real change from pre-COVID when I was always active, whether it was rapidly walking to a meeting, or going to the fitness gym in my apartment. With this extra weight, I just felt less motivated.
A little about me: I was an elite high-school athlete who ran the 800 meter, 1600 meter, and 3200 meter race. I ran all year — cross country, indoor track, outdoor track and summers with the USATF from middle school to part of high-school. I enjoyed being written about in my local newspaper and being a part of a successful high-school track team. Being competitive comes naturally to me. I am 5’8 and was always able to maintain a weight between 145 lbs. and 155 lbs. I am now 178 lbs. My hustle and drive for an active lifestyle was always evident but with the pandemic, it’s taken a hit.
Everyone has their own fitness journey and I decided to start mine with Adidas.
I signed up for:
- Adidas Running App
- Adidas Training by Runtastic
- Adidas creators program
Since I am now beginning to train, I wanted to join a community that would get me excited. I’ll take pictures each week to track the progress from the the first week to the 6th week.
Cheers to week 1!
