Total lack of blogging

If anyone reads this I apologize for the total lack of blogging. Basically I have had no time to do it, and now everyone has all of a sudden started using Facebook. Well, Facebook in itself is a lot to keep up with at times. Top it off with training, being very stressful at work, tons of fire department work and the days are over. Each could be a whole column by themselves.

The first week of April we were gone out of town to Brett's Army graduation in Fort Jackson, SC. I have pictures but no time to post right now. Still getting some runs in, in fact Annette and I got to run in London, KY while we were taking Brett to his AIT base at Fort Knox, KY. Must have had a little altitude there because it was hard to breathe.

We have still been getting some great lunch runs in. Usually two to three a week. Seems like we always end each one with a very fast last mile, almost racing to get finished. Makes for some great speed work and negative splits.

Last week I started P90x. Actually I was just testing it the first couple times so now I have decided to stick with it and see how it goes. I really like it. It's hard, but its like having your own personal trainer everyday. Annette and Michele have been doing it for a month now. They start at 5am everyday. I just can't do the early thing. Works better for me after work or maybe early mornings on weekends. Going to stick with it and see how it goes.

May be racing a 5k this weekend if weather permits. It's a small one so maybe I could win Next weekend we are heading to Nashville for the Country Music 1/2 Marathon. I don't really have a plan yet, haven't decided if I want to race it or just have fun. I did have a good run at the Inspiration Run last Friday. Did 12 miles of it and conquered Mountain Springs Road with no problems. Felt really strong and it was nice being at the front of the pack, though most of the others had already done 10 or more miles.

Oh yeah, tax day is over with for now. Filed my extension as usual. Our business accountant never gets all the stuff done in time.

Stay focused and think positive!

Thanks for the update! I'm avoiding FB as long as possible, LOL. Good luck on the 5K if you decide to do it. Sounds like your running is going well.
