Here it is, 11:00 on Thursday night, my brain is basically toast from an eventful and stressful week, and here I am making an attempt to stick with my weekly blogging routine and write a brand new #FitnessFriday blog post.
I've been attempting to brainstorm a "hot topic" about which I could write a good "viral-worthy" post. I wanted to write something relevant, something that a lot of people would find helpful, something without a lot of "I" and "me" and with more "you" and more full of advice, I guess you could say. I kind of did that with the last two weekly posts, and I wanted to carry on that trend. However, I'm drawing a bit of a blank at present due to the aforementioned brain drain.
And so, for this week, I'm settling upon a quick update on my own personal fitness journey and then I shall leave the forum open to... hopefully... some questions from you who have stopped by to read my ramblings. Had I thought of it sooner, I would have asked around prior to the writing of this blog (days ago!), but... maybe next time. It's part of my helpful nature to reach out and offer any assistance I'm able without thinking about "what's in it for me", so please ask away... any burning fitness, health, weight loss, workout, exercise, food questions you have. I'll answer from my own personal experience and if I don't know, it's highly likely I know someone who does.
As for the quick personal update, here goes. Admittedly, April was pretty sketchy for me as far as workouts and running. No excuses, no regrets, no blame, shame or beating up of self. What's done is done and though I'm feeling a little more "lumpy", less firm, and a little more 'doughy' around the middle than I'd gotten used to, I won't dwell in disgust. Moving forward, I have a brand new 'countdown to summer' fitness group on Facebook starting Monday (May 5) -- which, by the way, still has 3 spots open (wanna join? hit me up for details!). Then on May 25, I begin my official full marathon training plan. I've decided upon Hal Higdon's Marathon 3 training plan, which is 24 weeks long and consists of 3 running days a week, 2 cross training days and 2 rest days. I'll make it work, because I'm 100% determined to complete this marathon goal come November 8. I am dedicated!!!
Alright, that's enough of an update for one week, I do believe. Now I await your questions, comments, and conversation!
(By the way, I took a little time to revamp my website this week... poke around a bit and let me know whatcha think!).
