Long Road Back

Crocus int he park
Photo-A-Day 2.0 #01177

I was taking a walk today at the park and saw that these flowers were coming up in a few places. I am not sure if they are some form of crocus but they are out at the same time that those early flowers are at my house. It has been a while since I have taken a walk and I had been walking daily early in the pandemic. Allison and I were both home all the time so we would go for walks and would try and get 10,000 steps a day in. I haven’t been walking like that in a while but I am trying to get myself back into it so I can work up to running a few miles to get ready to retest for my Black Belt. I won’t be retesting until December or so but I know that it is going to be very difficult so I have to get back into the mindset of training. It has been difficult for me to get into that mindset after failing that first time out. I know that everyone gets to where they are supposed to be in their own time. I let the discouragement set in and with that I let myself backslide. I also know I cannot do that any longer if I hope to succeed in this next attempt. So, I’ll start off small with daily walks and work up to running while at the same time working on my other physical requirements.

Boston To Launch Free Online Wellness Studio With First-Ever Virtual Social Fitness Festival on National Fitness Day, May 2

Health & Wellness Classes Available Online at BostonSocialFitness.com

BOSTON (April 29, 2020) — Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced that the city’s 5th Annual Social Fitness Festival, presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, will now take place online this Saturday, May 2, 2020, in celebration of National Fitness Day.

Originally scheduled for September 12, Boston’s annual celebration of wellness typically draws thousands of participants together for a full day of dance, spin, sweat, stretch and play. Instead this year, participants can register online at BostonSocialFitness.com for the first-ever virtual festival on May 2 including a dynamic series of free live at-home classes.

“Thanks to the incredible passion and energy of our local health and wellness studios and fitness instructors, we are not only Boston Strong, but we will come through this crisis even stronger,” said Mayor Walsh. “These small businesses help drive our economy, and now they are coming together to help us all stay fit and connected. Join us in keeping Boston moving!”

The virtual fitness hub at BostonSocialFitness.com will feature an ongoing weekly schedule of wellness sessions and content designed to keep Bostonians active and healthy, despite current COVID-19 related stay-at-home guidelines.

“Together, we are all doing our part to win this fight,” said Jeff Bellows, Vice President of Corporate Citizenship and Public Affairs for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. “Blue Cross is excited to continue to partner with Mayor Walsh and our entire fitness community in efforts to keep Boston safe and healthy during these challenging times.”

Fitness studios/instructors and wellness brands in the Greater Boston area that are interested in participating are invited to email sweat@bostonsocialfitness.com for more information.
