It has been a rough few months since I started my new job @ the end of October-I have been battling all kinds of nasty colds/flus/viruses on & of for months & have done almost no training since I signed up for IronMan Florida 2012 back in November… So, now it all begins…no time to be sick-time to toughen up & make this happen…
My starting line-I currently weigh 205-still near my all time heaviest weight of 210 earlier this year??!! My working out has been nonexistent & I’m super frustrated that I have missed out on such a mild & beautiful winter/spring as I would have done most of my working out outside Oh well-what’s past is done & no sense dwelling on it…must keep moving forward & keep focusing on the goal…
My goal(s) for the year are:
in 139 days…as preparation for:
in 215 days…to get ready I’m working w/:
Chris Martino, Owner
As my dad always says; “Plan the work & work the plan.” Best advice I ever got!!
Yesterday was day 1 of my working out…nothing too serious…just a little race on the Towpath:
We did the 5 mile option…it was a beautiful day on the Towpath-cool & crisp. Tonia & I walked the mostly flat course @ a rapid pace (shorter stride w/ faster turnover) & did better than we expected. My ankles felt good-no stiffness or swelling-& we felt @ the finish line that we could have gone farther @ the same rapid pace… Not a bad 1st day back
the view @ the turnaround… a Great Lakes Brewing Co. The Wright Pils @ the end!!
Completely shifting gears…despite being off-and-on sick since I started…I STILL LOVE MY NEW JOB!! I can’t say enough about how connected I feel to the work I do!! I have to say that I truly didn’t realize how miserable I was in my previous job until I was out of there & into a career I truly feel a passion for..
This is a company I truly feel proud to say I work for…I don’t even mind working the occasional weekend Every day I am excited to go to work-even after a long & stressful day, I still feel motivated to go back the next day!! This is one area of my life where I really feel like I am doing what I am meant to do.
