Suck at bloggin'

Gosh - it's been like 4-ever since I've been on here. You could say I'm way to busy being a great Mommy or being the best employee, wife or training for like a long-distance race or something, but I'm not going to place blame on those. Pure laziness has slipped in, somehow, plus my addiction to Facebook has grown somewhat... Our lives have been busy. I could count an entire 6-8 wk span of weekends we had something major going on. Crazy, but I think it's actually slowing down somehow.

I'm in a challenging place right now with training for NOTHING and what to do with my workout time. It is harder to NOT be on a training plan than to be on one and having to go out for those runs, bikes, swims, whatever. So, I've been doing cross-training and toning. Specifically, a 3-day per week weight routine with cardio in between each days. I also joined a gym that is only 5 min from work, so I can maximize my lunch workouts. And, unfortunately because the Y is the only pool around (that is cheaper than any other gym), I'm keeping my membership there for only the pool. I've been doing the weight/cardio routine for 3 wks now and have gotten on a good schedule and am luvin' it.

After 3 wks of being dry, I finally got myself back in the pool this week and decided on 1500. I think that's my short distance swim from here on out... I just like that distance, and after the 3 wks, I didn't loose any speed (not that I'me speedy to begin with) --- just didn't loose any of my speed. Felt good.

Everything is going alright, bloggers. Just have missed this place. I look forward to reading your recent race reports and whatcha' been up to.

Peace

p.s. Good luck to Lisa doing the Scottsdale ride (70miles) tomorrow (Well, today - I'm up LATE).

Its funny how all the bloggers have migrated to facebook in addition to blogging. I guess we all just like to stay connected.

Glad to hear all is well with you and your family

So glad to have you back even if only for a moment! LOL! Get your face outta facebook and come back to blogland! JK,

I don't know how you do it all Mendy, you are amazing....thanks for the update!

1500 sounds like a good base swim. I've been lazy and have only been doing 800 each time I head into the pool. Sigh.

Marcy said...

You know, I'm starting to get all into Facebook now too so I don't blame ya ;-) Plus it's always cool to have games there to beat Java with :P

I'm glad to hear things are going good chica!

Any news on the house front????

Chad in the AZ Desert said...

It's not just you - where is that hubby of yours these days? I know nothing at all about Facebook, so I can't make a comment.

Glad to see the swimming returned so easily.

I'm no good at training without a race on the horizon. If I don't have a calendar full of them to train for, I just fall apart.

Viv said...

No way I could keep up with FB too. LOL! Miss you around Mendy way to keep at it even though you are busy :-)

I've been very absent too and miss everyone terribly. Isn't that funny? Feel like I am missing out on everybody's lives. Sounds like you've got a great routing going. I haven't been doing much. Thinking about joining a gym with a pool which would be amazing. Finally I could do some regular swimming.

Hugs.

Shannon said...

Yo mama, get a blogging!

Jess said...

Facebook is where my students are, so I steer clear of that!

But welcome back to blogland -- hope you stay for a spell!

teacherwoman said...

Okay I am so confused. This post was dated 10/02/08 and just showed up in my blogroll.. weird.

Glad to hear you are getting wet again! 1500 is a good distance! :)

See you on the flip side... facebook that is! :)
