Blogging is like cross-training

I’m on the cross-trainer in my small home-gym when this analogy comes to mind.

I remember 2 months ago when I started training seriously, that the first 18 minutes of my training (out of my 20 minutes program) were horrible. Although I knew this was great for the mind and the body, MY body wasn’t enjoying it- at all! Starting to work out was difficult and continuing the session was very challenging, no matter what music was playing.

So I set an objective for myself that I would stick with it at least until the beginning of the hockey training (end of October). As a second goal – in case I would meet the first one – I set to lose 15 pounds by January 2009. Ideally, I would keep training for the long run…

So I’m on the cross-trainer realizing that after training 3 – 4 times a week for 45 to 60 minutes, it does get easier. As the weeks passed, the painful period went down from 18 minutes to 12 to 8 to 5 minutes. After 8 weeks, it is still difficult to get the drive to start working out but that only last 5 minutes and I immediately feel the benefits.

So what does this have to do with the blog. Writing on a daily basis probably won’t be easy and for most part it might take some serious efforts but with dedication, perseverance and commitment I would guess it will become easier… Maybe in 8 weeks…
