Life is moving quickly, as always. This past week FLEW by...and thankfully ended with a wonderful 4-day weekend. I took a much needed recovery week this past week. I did nothing on Monday; Tuesday was some general strength exercises at unit PT--nothing crazy; Wed was a slow 3 mile run; Thursday I walked the dogs; Friday I rode my bike for 45 minutes; Saturday I rode for 1.5 hours at a good clip; Sunday I ran for an hour...none of it pushed me hard except for the Saturday ride, but that was good and I didn't have any soreness from it. I'm putting together my plan for maintaining up till the San Antonio 1/2 Marathon...then in DEC I'm going to start working with a coach to get through the 2009 season. Lots I could say on that, but I'll leave it for another time.
Now that it is the "off season" I am focusing on nutrition. BT has a nutrition log, so I'm logging calories. I can get faster by trimming down, and I'm going to do my best to be diligent with that. It's difficult to lose fat during heavy training cause you have to eat to keep up your energy...so now is the time to do this. So, there is one off-season goal.
I am also reading some more. Of big importance, back in Aug/Sept I finally found a church to call my church home and it does have a singles group that seems to get it...so I finally have some people to hang out with here locally that don't think throwing back the bottle is the best way to spend a weekend.
So, nothing exciting to report really. Had a good, relaxing weekend. Thankfully, it's a 4-day work week. Right now I'm just VERY excited about going to volunteer at Ironman Florida at the end of the month and get a little taste of what next year will hold...
