Don't you hate it when a trip breaks up your schedule? It never really dawns on me till I get back to aschedule how much I've missed working out. But the travel, the drinks after work, the company dinners...it just makes it soooo difficult.
I must find some time to add weights into the mix! Arms & shoulders, mostly, as I seem to be doing all core/legs with the Swim/Bike/Run & Ballet.
Ok i've not been posting, but i have been working out a lot. I started an olympic triathlon last week, but I wrecked on the bike, and didn't finish. I'm mostly ok at this point, though my left hand is still badly sprained, and probably won't be right for a month or so.
Anyway, I pledge to post my workouts this month!
Another summer haitus over, and I was able to finish my first 1/2 marathon! 2:08 and a ton of hills, so I'm pretty pleased!
Also - I tried a >competing platform< 'map my run', and I am able to say that I prefer this one, with a few exceptions.
2010 was kinda a mixed bag. My triathlons were cut from 6 in 06 to just 1 in 10 b/c of schedule and injury...but i did get a chance to try ballet, which was really interesting...not sure where 2011 is headed, but I have a few things I'd like to do, like a long distance swim race, a half marathon, etc. Luckily, I won't have long to wat before it becomes time to figure it out!
Well I finished my first half-marathon this year, training for my second currently. Found a running partner in DC (which helps a lot). Aced my first semester of grad school. And a have a few other irons in the fire that hopefully will produce great results early on in 2011. Thanks for asking! How did 2010 work out for you?
Thanks for the encouragement from Miami! Hope you have a great holiday!
Have you ever done any of those trail runs at Oleta? "No Whining" is their motto. I was in no shape to do the 5k in August...it was brutal and hot and I fell...and I can't tell you when I had more FUN! felt like a little kid...
Bad week last week - my company almost folded, and I was depressed. Whaa. Back on track this week.
Another Summer Hiatus over...
