Checking In

TL;DR I started this blog so that I would remember times when I was struggling, even after better times might come along. I've still got my share of struggles and learning I'm experiencing now.

I've been remiss in posting to this blog. I was good about posting every day when I was training for the IronMan. It was easy to document my workout. I didn't really talk about much else, though. I have been reasonably disciplined about continuing to follow a workout schedule. But, that's not why I'm making sure to sit down and write this post now. Let me finally get to it.

Checking in

I've started doing (at least a few) things a little bit differently in 2016. Maybe there is still more that I'll need to do differently.

After fighting against a cold for a ridiculous amount of time, I have begun exercising again. It's not just about getting into shape; it's also about making sure that I don't just sit in front of my computer all day long seven days a week.

Sunday Update

Yesterday I rode the stationary bike for a 30 minute strength workout. Today I ran 30 minutes on the treadmill doing a similar type of strength workout.

Today's update

I completed an interval bike / run combination on Wednesday. As planned, I rested yesterday. I did a Masters workout this morning.

Yesterday I was not exactly productive with my business. I suppose I accomplished some marketing (and maybe relationship building?). But, mostly I think I wasted a lot of time.

I'll reset myself and do better today.

I give thanks to the Universe for the abundance it provides me. I surrender and am open and ready to receive.

Busy, busy, busy

I've got a bit of catching up to do and I'm going to make it brief.

I did a couple of run workouts in Berkeley while I was attending BADCamp. My presentation on Sunday was well received and I'm very happy with the job I did.

I had to go in for a jury summons on the 26th. I never got called in to the courtroom and was dismissed well before noon. I did a few workouts that week, including the 30/20/10 stationary bike.

Zone 1 - Zone 2 Run

I ran for about 50 minutes. I think tomorrow I'll have to get my workout in around Berkeley. So, I'm guessing the rest of the days won't have hill work like this if any at all.

Masters Swim

I completed 2050 of the 2300 workout today. I probably would have completed all of it had it not been for the fact that there was a fair amount of kick sets.

I was up again at 2:30 and did get some work done before the workout. I felt great about going to the workout.
