This challenge has been the easiest so far for me, because I bookmarked a surf retreat a few months ago hoping to one day be able to attend. I would go with my best friend, Whitney, and we would learn to surf, while enjoying some yoga sessions, eating good food, and do some exploring of the local area. I’m not sure which destination we would choose, since I found some retreats in Bali, Mexico, and Hawaii that all look and sound amazing. The Hawaii location would probably win out since it is co-ed and we could hopefully meet some cute surfer guys. Maybe an even better fantasy workout would be to attend retreats at all three locations. That way we could scuba dive in Bali, practice yoga in Mexico, and meet some guys in Hawaii all while learning how to surf and having a good time.
The most logical way to incorporate surfing into my workout routine this week would be to swim, but I am actually a terrible swimmer, which makes this even more of a fantasy workout. Plus, the pool water is too cold right now for me to do any swimming. I googled for some surfing workouts and many of them use a stability ball, which I will not have access to this week. I also found a short video for a Sexy Surfer Body Workout and tried a few of the moves that were demonstrated, but found them to a bit a boring outside of an actual workout video. Luckily, one of the retreats had a link to a fitness program in order to get ready for the retreat. I already run, do push-ups, squats, and have been using a hula hoop, which I’m hoping with strengthen my core muscles, so it seems that just as long as I become a stronger swimmer and develop a stronger core, this fantasy workout might actually become a reality and this will actually be me one day.
