So by way of a quick update of what I've been up to without boring the pants off of everyone I've spent the winter running the Island Series, scoring a personal best time in my 10K and 5K distances. I've been going to the gym way more than ever before and I had my ass kicked in a 10K race in my hometown. There are some things I've learned this year that I think are worth sharing, namely because I believe they are useful to you, the person reading this. Look for a few new posts soon on how I successfully trained for a faster shorter distance race at 46 years old, what I did right and what I'll change for next time. I also have learned some lessons from using the gym more and routines I'm using as a middle-aged endurance athlete. These will pertain to everyone but I think runners in particular will enjoy it. I'm also going to write about failure and getting absolutely kicked to the curb at a race. Oddly I enjoyed it in some sick way, probably because I was able to learn so much.
So I'm back.
As for YouTube, I'm going to admit I've lost interest. Video is simply too time consuming and the media on there so filled with nonsense I have trouble being associated with it. I'm still very much interested in adding to the podcast library. There is absolutely some time friction but I enjoy the format and I'm a big consumer of podcasts. This year I posted a nice interview with a local athlete named Sean Sherstone. I hope you give it a listen. There are other interviews lined up.
In the meantime, happy running/biking/swimming or whatever floats your boat.
