It’s been a good month for physical activity. Scratch that, it’s been a great month!
I did close to 35 “sessions” of more than 30 minutes with very good variety. I did a bunch of days with two sessions, even one with 3! The main activities were running, snowshoeing and hockey, as I usually do most in January.
It’s been a lot less running (probably 10 runs or so) then the other #31in31 challenges but I got a lot of other stuff in. I feel great especially since I went full keto all month. No sugar, no refined carbs and no alcohol!
I also doubled down on mobility work, in the hot tub and steam room at the gym, and in my den. I also did a lot of mental work, mostly meditation and some healings. And read some great books such as Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach and Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari.
It helped that I had a bit more time to get this done, especially earlier in the month. I also prioritized sleep all month, averaging more close to 7.5 hours of sleep per night for the month.
This was the month of “Eric” it seems as I did a bit of a reset in some areas of my life. As always, I find some physical activity always helps regulate the mood, especially when it’s done in fresh air.
I’m gonna try to keep it intact as much as I can for the month of February but I know the no alcohol thing will be out the window for the Super Bowl next weekend at the very least!
Here are some of the activities I did this month:
- Playing hockey
- Fat biking
- Cold/hot exposure
My #31in31 challenge didn’t catch on as much as usual but I’m to blame. I started almost a week late due to a social media fast and then didn’t promote it much. Oh well, you can’t win them all!
What did you get up to in January?
