Dumb Resolutions

I had earlier resolved to try and run every day this month (Jan).  Went out yesterday for a slow/slippery - fairly dangerous - 1.5 miles.  I'm now thinking that maybe January in New England isn't the best time to try and run *every* day.  Of course, This is about to happen as well.  So - changing course - I did a 21 minutes strength workout: 5 pushups, 30-seconds back/superman-thing, 30-seconds balence on each leg, and then 10 side-leg-lifts: 6x (+ 5 more pushups).  Goals was to strengthen the ol-itb.  I may try and go out for another short jog tomorrow depending on conditions.

Oh - and happy new year!

Early New Year.

Jumping into next year a bit early.  I plan on running a little every day this month - as far as that is possible with snow/skiing.  Kicked-it off today with 8 miles - mostly on the minuteman turnpike - at a slow/steady 9 min/mile.  Hopefully I'll be able to stick to it.

Late Fall Post.

Happy Holidays!  I went into a bit of a funk after missing out on my planned half.  It was a great fall regardless - but very busy.  Have managed to run 10-14 miles most weeks until these last two.  I'm thinking of trying to start swimming in the new year, and maybe try to run every day for the first month - kind of a stupid goal - but my hope is to get back into shape for the feb/march training season with some solid base and swimming is always good.  Will the blog comeback?  I don't really know - it may have run it's course...
