The title of this post WAS going to be "I Love It When a Plan Comes Together." Unfortunately, my host and my Internet connection have other plans. And the definitely AREN'T coming together. So, I had to go with something about the best laid plans of mice and men...
It is amazing how quickly things can fill a schedule. At work, I found myself struggling just to get through all of the "must do" projects that came out of the budgeting process. It can be disheartening to look at a day's work, see how much was accomplished, only to realize that none of it was normal workload.
Okay, here's the question of the day. Why is it that my body seems to want more food when my training volume decreases than during some of the heaviest training/racing periods of the year?
As a conservative, I mourn the Republican party that abandoned its core beliefs and now pays the price for that move.
Okay, I know it was just a week ago that I capped off the season with the Fall 50 ultramarathon. But the timing is such that my "off season" looks more like a recovery week. That's okay, because my taper looked more like an off season. Though I feel a bit sluggish, I was at the gym, Saturday, for a short swim and an even shorter run.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
