It's been a long time....

Since I've written.  About 2 months to be exact but to save my good name from being tarnished, I thought about the blog practically every day.  But it was difficult to put finger to keypad when I didn't think there was really a whole lot going on that anyone would be interested in.  I lacked motivation and therefore inspiration.  But I figure it's time to provide a quick update and in doing so tonight, I got to thinking how bloody diversified my life is.  And with diversification comes a silly amount of time investment and coordination.  So here's the roll down:

  • Got sick in November with some kind of sinus infection so I stopped writing.  I lacked content as I wasn't training or doing much of anything.
  • December was nuts as we tried to close some things out at work and get ready for the holidays.  Not much training and I learned that I think I just needed a break.  I said to myself I'd pick it back up again January 1.  Went for a few runs outside and rides on the CT.  Barely even enough to call it 'maintenance'.
  • I also planned a full diet regime to ensure I was eating uber healthy again, in support of my next bullet:
  • Here's the highlight --> my coached swim program started January 3rd and I love it.  It's a Night Owls program (9:15 - 10:15) which fits my life perfectly.  With dogs, cats, kids and 'too much work', it seems that is a perfect time for me and it's working out great.
  • We are now traveling every weekend for alpine skiing as the girls are in programs at Tremblant.  I taught and coached there for 13 years and am pleased to see my girls on track to do the same, haha!  Actually, one just started a racing program and the other will begin next year.  I will say, however, they both ski technically so well and I am really really proud of them.  They're out there in the cold, wind, snow, etc without any problems.  Good on them!
That's about the catchup.  I can't wait to get into some of the swim training stuff we've done, riding the CT, and some good hill running.  Details to follow.....
