Last year my fitness goals were an epic failure. I've come to terms with that and am moving past it. Normally I set my goals for the upcoming year during the last couple of weeks in December and get everything lined out. This year I took a different approach. I have had an idea of … Continue reading Kickin’ It Off
I am happy to say that the first quarter of 2019 has started out exponentially better than the start to 2018. It's amazing how close I can get to my goals when I'm not spending an entire month sitting in a hospital room. Or nursing an injured ankle.

About this time last year I set some fitness goals. These goals were inspired by the Doxa Threelay … Continue reading Failing Versus Failure

Tomorrow I may go on a self loathing tirade about how sluggish I am being, but for today.... I am OK with not hitting the exact mark … Continue reading Progress Q1 – Final
At the beginning of the year I set some mileage goals. I have since adjusted those goals from Running, Biking, Swimming to Running, Biking, Swimming, and Walking. A couple of reasons for this change. Primarily (and this is going to sound stupid) because my Garmin keeps track of mileage on my running shoes, and I … Continue reading Progress Check – Q1
