Coffee with PT!!

Today my PT and I went for a pre-arranged coffee. First we ran around Windsor for 40 min or so and then we had a coffee. It was the first time we did something like that. And it was really good fun to do! We might do that again when I am his last client. It was actually good as we had time to talk about my progres. And I told him that I have been thinking about how to stay fit after I finish with all these sessions. As I am not gonna do for the rest of my life. And then he suggested for me to join his triatlon club. To be honest he already mentioned it quite a few times but I thought he was joking. And actually he was serious all along. So we talked about it in depth and I am really tempted to do it. As with that there is also a big social side to it too. Apparantly most of them are single (just like me!!) and they meet up on monthly basis for a BBQ or some other gathering. And that is just what I need right now. I want to meet more people and make more friends. So this might be the perfect thing for me. I am not someone who does something on her own. I need people around to spur me on and also as I don't like being on my own. And this could be ideal ... doing something fitness related (which I love right now) and meeting people. So when my PT is back from holiday(in a weeks time) I will probably start doing it. He has a bike that I could borrow and see if I like it and then we will see it from there. I am really excited about it right now!! Never thought I would do something like that. I would like to do a race one day. Maybe this is just the turnaround in my life that I need... :)

I feel like a lot has changed for me. First I started to clean up my diet, and having more protein and whey protein (which have helped so much in my diet!!), my fitness has improved in such a big way and now my social life could change for the better. All good!! I am so glad I stuck with this PT as he could introduce me to all this new things in life. And I know I wouldn't have done it on my own!!
