I actually know better than to try to answer that question. I was talking to a good friend today about writing, blogging, reading, etc., and it occurred to me that updating this blog has been on my mental to-do list for quite a while.
The trouble with a mental to-do list, of course, is that it never really becomes an actual to-do list. Rather than beat myself up about it, I chose today to simply take action and write something here.
Let me catch you up real quick-like:
After finishing Chicago (and my last post here), I took a few days to recover and then began running again. I enjoyed it very much. My running buddy Steve was still nursing an injury, so I just took some runs when I needed to for about three weeks. By the first of the year, it looked as if Steve was going to be able to get back out there again, and we chose another marathon to shoot for:
On April 28, 2019, we will complete the Oklahoma City Marathon. I haven’t run OKC since 2012, and I’m really looking forward to doing it again.
We started training formally in February, and we are into the long miles now. This weekend, we have a 20-miler. Steve really nailed his 18-miler a couple of weeks ago, and I’m looking forward to a good day on Sunday.
We’re still training the Galloway way, and we’re loving it. I’m trying to help Steve remember to be more conservative starting out in order to finish strong. It goes against his nature, as it does most runners. He’s doing a great job of training.
In addition to our runs, we cross train at Camp Gladiator three days per week. Loving that too. Next month, I will have faithfully worked out 3 times per week (with only a couple of exceptions) for a year. Let’s hear it for forming habits!
My weight has continued to come off, and I have less that 20 pounds to reach my lifetime maintenance goal. That is an exciting place to be. I have a lot to say about that, and I’ve very thankful for good coaching.
So, there you go. Expect to see more posts more regularly.
Remember to breathe. And move. And eat sensibly. And all that stuff.
