Still not dead.

I’m still not dead. Yet. No, I haven’t been running. I’ve been settling into my new job, and coming up with all sorts of excuses when I think “I really ought to get back to running.” So, yes, I suck. … Continue reading

I haven’t been training over the last week. I can only plead lack of time and energy. I’ve been busy finishing off a major project at work during my final two-week period there, and just haven’t really had much energy … Continue reading

A little bit of motion.

A two and a half hour hike has left me slightly sore today. My son and I hit the trails in a local natural area and the hills were impressive. All the huffin’ and puffin’ makes me feel a bit … Continue reading

New WordPress – No Motion

I’ve just upgraded to a new WordPress, primarily to help with the comment spam problem. And I must say, so far it’s working great in that respect. I still haven’t gotten back into running, and I’ve decided I’m approaching it … Continue reading

Returning to health?

The last few days have been unpleasant. Not sure just what it was that I caught, but it wasn’t any fun at all. My wife, at one point, was convinced I had pneumonia. The last two days (Sunday and Monday) … Continue reading

Good run.

I actually had a far better run tonight than I deserve. It came easier this time, despite the fact that I haven’t been keeping up with it like I should. There’s still some walk breaks going on, but fewer and … Continue reading

Just posting a quick update. I’ve been having some slight computer issues (see my main blog for details), and so haven’t been posting here recently. Also, I’m still not really back on track yet. I’ve made some motions in that … Continue reading

Missing a few days.
