So every time I think I'm going to have a few minutes to sit down and write a post, I end up running off to do some workout. I don't remember 9 workouts/week feeling like so much last year. But then I wasn't seeing 6-10 clients per day last year, either.
Since I've been so long absent, let me just lay out for you what I've been doing over the past few weeks . . .
Not so much dieting as watching what I eat, actually. I want to be down 10 lbs and 5% body fat by the time base building is over. That'll put me at 140, 20% body fat. I can't wait to see what that does to my running.
Still setting my own training plan and schedule, although at this point I'd really like to hire a coach. But for now, that money needs to go into the bike fund. So looks like another year of self-coaching. That's what most of us do anyway, right?
Don't much care for it, anymore, so I've made my strength workouts as concise as possible. They consist of one-legged squats, deadlifts, (assisted) pull-ups, tricep push-ups, glute bridges on a stability ball, and a ton of core work. I don't know if it's making any difference, yet, but I do know that my strength training gave me a huge advantage last year.
Do I even need to say it? I was booked solid today (a mental health half-day is the only thing that afforded me the time to write this). I was booked solid yesterday, and Monday. I am booked solid on Friday. I do have some appointments still available on tomorrow. So if you're looking for a trainer, Thursday is your day.
Oh! And I even had a date a couple weeks ago! I know, it's outrageous. I was still home by 10:30, though.
So now you're all caught up. Not very interesting, I suppose. But I'm content. Even more--I'm happy.
And now that that's done, I'm off to catch up on all of your blogs . . .
