It’s been a while since I blogged – I’ve made conscious decisions to cut back on certain things, because my life has been a little out of control; blogging, reading and commenting is one of the things I’ve let slide. I feel better for doing it, and frankly at this time, I’m not sure when (or if) I’ll get back to a regular schedule. I hope to post more once I start actively training again.
So what’s happening? Well, my shoulder has been injured for almost 6 weeks now, but between physiotherapy and massage therapy, I think I’m almost better. I swam 3 times last week, and while I’m slower than I like, and I’m not swimming as far, my shoulder isn’t hurting. This is what matters. Now I get to start building back up.
As well, I took almost two weeks off biking, and did take two full weeks off running, and while I’m still tired (and my legs feel SO heavy!), I know I needed it. This week, I’m setting myself up for a slow return to working out… trying to get back into it before real Ironman training starts in January.
My weight? Sigh… I am so not motivated, and not working out hasn’t helped, although I’m really only up 5-6 pounds total. It’s still 5 pounds too much, my clothes are tight and I don’t feel great, but at least it’s not terrible.
As for work… well, I really, really like my new job. 🙂 And I seem to be doing pretty well at it. But I’m definitely working a lot more hours than I was at the casino, and getting up at 5:00 almost every morning means going to bed earlier too. I never thought I’d be a morning person, but I’m finding if I don’t work out in the morning, I’m so tired after work I just don’t feel like it. Fine for now, but not fine once January rolls around!
So that’s where I’m at! Not MIA, but not around as much as I would like to be. Hopefully I’ll be back soon…
