Lets face it: When a guy has a few goals, some hit the mark and others seem to fall by the wayside.
And so it is with this guy.
Goal number 1: Running the Clam Beach Run.
I been maintaining a regular gym attendance. About 5 days out of the 7 day week. Pretty darn good. I have lost 6 pounds (I'm sure I could lose a little more were I to really alter my diet, but I end up so hungry after hitting the gym I just want to keep eating). But my cardio level has gone way up. I don't really pay attention to my heart rate when I am running the treadmill, but I do on the elliptical trainer. My target heart rate is 149 for a cardio session, and I have to really work my self in order to get my heart level that high. Further, I am currently doing a little over two miles on the treadmill. On a 15 week training program, I am looking at being right on target for the 5 3/4 mile run on January 29th.
Goal number 2: Blogging:
I don't know why it is I can't seem to make time to sit down and hammer out a post. Over the course of the last week I have started several entries, but to no avail. They all seem to be swallowed up by the murky abyss that is a jumbly concoction of procrastination, writers block and sheer laziness.
And of course, the time I feel most motivated to write anything is at work? When, arguably, I should be doing other things. Weird.
So OK, there is the update as it stands. Its not huge, but its progress. And with that, I am happy.
I'll be hitting the elliptical trainer tomorrow morning before bed time, that should kick me up to nearly 10 miles in total distance this week so far.
I can see the finish line now....
