Autopilot. I guess that’s where I’ve been? No real need to report specifics on the last three years since you were there too, I assume. If not, congratulations? Since this blog was a general report on inactivity two years prior to the world pretty much shutting down, I’ll spare you the recap. Suffice to say,… Continue reading Title…
A large span of internet silence from someone with an online presence, even a minimal one, can generally mean they’re busy with life … I guess? Not the case here. Sure, work is busier than it’s been in awhile but that’s no excuse to stop thinking, at least it shouldn’t be. And how many times… Continue reading What’s New?
So here we are
Funny how a blog about self-improvement can go on without an update for close to a year and when he finally makes it back to post an update, there’s nothing new. I pretty much took the whole damn year off from running but have still been going to CrossFit regularly. I’ve noticed a difference in… Continue reading So here we are
Can I do better?
I’ve been asking myself this question A LOT lately. And yeah, I can do better, at pretty much everything. I’m not necessarily picking on myself for anything in particular but as I assess the things in my life that matter: my family, my health, my career … I’m positive that consistently trying to improve should… Continue reading Can I do better?
Book – The Cool Impossible
I started reading The Cool Impossible by Eric Orton a few days ago, launching into it after finishing Born to Run. It has become quickly evident that my shortcomings are due to the fact that I’m totally out of balance and don’t train with any kind of purpose. I’m only two chapters in and the… Continue reading Book – The Cool Impossible
Eating clean – A two day experiment
As I get older, I’m starting to notice how my body isn’t taking to certain foods the way it used to. Dairy and fried foods are the main culprits I’ve come to realize definitely don’t sit well but sugar rich foods, especially cheap baked goods, are likely to be added to a “why bother” list… Continue reading Eating clean – A two day experiment
There’s a small park close to my house that is relatively wooded and has a decent size (for suburban Chicago) lake in the middle. It has a decent amount of wildlife, which is more prominent in the summer, but there’s a year-round resident who camps out in the middle of a marsh I came across… Continue reading Running buddy
I am a terrible marathon runner
So Grandma’s weekend came and went, and I didn’t die…but that’s pretty much it. I didn’t do anything else worthy of praise either. It was pretty much the hardest race I’ve run since I started running competitively, and I’m pretty certain that it’s the last marathon for me.
I’m about five weeks out from Grandma’s and training is going well, despite really not committing to any kind of schedule through winter. My longest run so far has been twelve miles and I’m mixing some shorter runs in during the week and haven’t felt anything that seems like I might run into trouble like… Continue reading Getting closer!
Since I apparently have diet tourette’s, I’m gonna just put this out there: I’m starting RP (probably next week). A bunch of people at my box have had great success with it and it comes with a template that tells you what to buy and when to eat, based on the time of day you… Continue reading Renaissance Periodization
