Today, I made a vow.
I vowed to start blogging again.
Ya'll have heard all the excuses before, so I'm just gonna skip it and jump back to where we left offf.....
So quick recap of the last few month since my Kansas Half Marathon recap:
-Finished three more half marathons since then: Running with the Cows, Kansas City Corporate Challenge, and Hospital Hill
-Bailed AGAIN out of a triathlon
-Tried to jumble a training schedule, and work and school and well everything
-Failed to blog
-Gained some weight
-Paid off some debt
-Ate some good food, mostly candy
Thaaaaat's about it.....why do I blog again? I am relatively uneventful, yet somehow I can always find a way to fill the page with words. I'm mouthy like that I guess.
I have been thinking about doing a reformat, reorganizing and just generally redoing the blog. Like new name and everything, but while the creative juices flow we shall stick to The Bosky Blog, a punny blog that no one fully understands.
Anyway, on to the important things. I am not registered for any more races this year, well long ones that will require extensive training or maintenance. Which really excites me because now, I feel like I can focus on different goals. Like getting to my goal weight, building some muskles, getting faster and giving my knee a chance to heal. So next year when I go to attempt six half marathons in five months, I won't feel totally terrible about myself and lack of progress.
There's such a thing as tangible progress and intangible progress. Quite honestly, if I have made any progress in the last year it's completely intangible, and I am unable to recognize it. Ya'll might think I am too hard on myself, but the second I give myself a break I get stagnant and placid....and end up with a year of zip, oh like last year!
I need to focus, and werk. It's like wicked hard to start, but I got out there today in 100 degree heat and hit the trail with my pooch. We hit the hills, did some strength training moves and worked up a decent sweat. The best feeling in the world right now is just being able to get out there, with no pressure. I can relax and get the benefit of my run without stressing myself out about pace and my upcoming PR goal.
Goliath likes it too, because he doesn't feel so bad when he wants to stop and smell the pheromones.
What I ate today: Coffee with half and half and sugar, 1 cup of hot and sour soup, chicken and broccoli over white rice, slice of supreme pizza
How I worked out today: 3 mile sweat fest with Goliath
