Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. It’s been 2 full weeks since my last update. I’ve been pretty busy with work and training. Today was finally a rest day. I’ve had a couple others but those were spent all day in the car driving back and forth between New York and Ohio for the Blue Jackets season opener.
Coach Alan has been working me pretty hard, and I’m seeing progress. I have gained a mile per hour in my 30 minute average on the bike, and I’m closing in on the same for running. My swimming I’ve dropped over a minute on my 1000 yard pace. I’ve also gotten a good amount of time on the mountain bike. We’ve just started focusing on big ring work on the trainer, and fartlek runs. Oh, the fartlek. A name that makes me giggle, but a workout that makes me suffer. 40 minute fartlek effort, on the hills, in 10 degree weather.
Things are getting heated up for Eleonore Rocks, the uni’s are getting ordered, and the fundraising is getting straightened out. I’ll have more details on this later.
Lastly, three weeks until tomorrow until I head to Vegas for a week. It’s going to be a great trip. I’m going to work hard to lose 10 more pounds before that trip. My weight has been coming down, and even with though it has yo-yoed a bit due to travel, I’ve lost 6 inches off my body to go with the weight lost. I really want and hope to be successful this year in getting leaner and healthier.
