Talk about fitness or Do fitness

Ten days to go. Okay, it’s more like eleven, but who’s counting? I am that’s who.

To go to what?

My second Chicago Olympic distance triathlon, that’s what.

So, where am I?

I realized that blogging right now is a hobby. I like to do it. I think I am good at it, but there are currently more important objectives in my life. That is why I have not been on a regular posting schedule.

What have I been up to?

I have been on a regular exercise schedule! For the past ten and half weeks, I have run twice a week, biked twice a week, and swam twice a week. I have made exercise a priority! It’s on my google calendar. I do it. When I miss a day, I move that workout to another day and brick it. Or, when I was away without my bicycle to ride, I did more running workouts. Its been awesome. I feel great. I have much more confidence in my triathlon time this year.

One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation.

Granted, some of my self-confidence comes from not being a complete rookie triathlete. Now, I am just your average age-grouper, but I am still raring to go. This training season: I ran farther, swim faster, and biked faster than last year. I know I am better prepared, and that makes confidence easy.

Consequently, as I know you have noticed, the time that I use to blog about fitness activities has been replaced by actually doing fitness related activities. In fact, the time I would use for many of my technology consulting and technical training activities has been replaced by my fitness activities. Of course, I still make time for my family. It also seems that twitter and facebook have given me a micro outlet to express myself.

Waxing Philosophically Now:

Still I miss writing and blogging. I miss commenting on other blogs.

I am still voraciously reading the entire interent.  I try my best to keep up with fitness blogs using Reeder on my iPad.  I follow too many people on twitter.

The one thing I don’t miss is the lack of energy I used to feel.  My energy is now exercise powered, and its great.

So for now, bear with my inconsistent posts. I have stories to tell, and I think I can help you meet your goals.

In the meantime, I suggest you stop reading/writing about fitness and you actually starting doing fitness!
