Week 2

The second week came and went in a flash. I’ve settled on 16 sets of 25 for the rest of this month while I build up the grip and forearm strength as I’m still worried about the kettlebell slipping out of my hands and going through a window or worse over the edge of the balcony.

I have to be honest though I am only 3,600 swings in to my challenge and it feels like I’ve been doing it for years. I keep having to remind myself that this is a marathon and not a sprint. The benefits will come later and now I just need to keep being disciplined. I want to feel some kind of instant hit of improvement but this was always about building good habits as much as building something physical.

Fortunately I seem to have attracted a very helpful community on instagram and I’ve received lots of encouragement from around the globe but also some great hints and tips. A big shout out to Deborah in Perth (ballet_barbells_debbi), Angie (angiejo.wanderwoman), Jen in Vegas (jenrosedance), and Piers in Brisbane (qldkettlebells). Thank you all so much.
