Hello everyone, I am back. Sorry for the hiatus from blogging but truthfully I haven't been very active in any real sense.
My last post was another round of P90X. Well I stopped in week 3. It was "screwing" up my other workout and I felt they were more important. I promised myself that I will continue to do some lifting and core work, just not the regimented P90X schedule.
I have been able to mostly keep up with that. I have spent lots of time in the pool but also lost of time running. I am getting ready to compete in the Disney Marathon. This is a huge deal for me. I am a huge Disney fan and I am totally looking forward to running through all the parks. I am also looking forward to running with about 25,000 people. WOW, I know. That is a lot of people. At first I was concerned about getting trampled at the start but my friend Chick, assured me that I would be ok.
As you know I ran my first marathon last March. I ran a 3:22 something. My goal for this marathon is 3:20. I know it's not much of a decrease from my first marathon and this course is going to be flat. Well after talking to mentor, I found that my running did not include a sufficient amount of long run, so I am going to listen to his advise and go for a 3:20. I am growing, how about that.
Know that this is the first blog of a new year and it's customary to list goals and resolutions. So here are a few of mine.
1. Complete Ironman Louisville before dark.
2. Complete Ironman Raleigh in 6 hours.
3. Compete in an double century ride.
4. Ride at JDRF Nashville and Death Valley
5. Become a running mentor and work on becoming a coach.
That's it for athletic / fitness goals. I am sure I am forgetting something really important. It will come to me later.
