I really like the idea of sharing the writings of other bloggers once a week; I used to do it more often, and I’m going to try to keep it up. We’ll see how long that lasts!
This is an old post I was turned on to by Timmo (Fat. Boy. Thin.) from his Twitter feed. This post is from Can You Stay for Dinner, and it talks about the Maintenance phase of weight loss. Being in maintenance for almost two years now, I understand a lot of what she talks about here.
Jamie over at Swim Bike Run Live made me laugh as he questioned other people’s perception of masculinity – apparently, even as an Ironman triathlete, he’s “just not that into sports”. What made me really laugh is he sounds so much like my husband – who is also not into traditional sports, and just doesn’t care.
Jon at Tales of an Age Group Triathlete has set himself an audacious goal this year – he wants to set a new PR at every distance! He’s been training like crazy, and running super well, so he may be able to do it – I wish him well and will follow with interest.
I love Susan Lacke’s posts at No Meat Athlete – she’s funny, but always has a really important point. This week, she shows us 7 different ways we can Pay Forward our love of running. They are all good suggestions – I would love to host an athlete, although we have no major races close. Volunteering at races is another great way to get involved.
And in keeping with giving back… the last post I’m highlighting this week is Rebecca’s Energise Easter Virtual Event to raise funds for leukaemia research! For a minimum donation of 9 pounds (I have no idea how to create the pounds symbol… yes, I’m a twit ); and a pledge to do some sort of movement over the Easter weekend, you can support a wonderful cause and stay healthy at the same time. I’m going to be in… I say go for it!
Goals update: I had a lot of goals set up for yesterday. I did start my character outlines, but I really wasn’t feeling it – I couldn’t visualize my characters, or my story at all. Some days it’s right there, some days it’s not. I rode my bike. I ran. I read a magazine and a bit. I wrote more than 4 blog posts. And I read some, although not 3 chapters. Really, really productive day.
1. Swim workout
2. Run workout
3. Finish book
4. Read 1 magazine
5. Write 3 blog posts
6. Plan 1 work meeting
7. Work on master list and schedule
