It seems everything has been going in fits and starts, lately. Training has been on again, off again as I deal with schedules, weather, colds, and holiday demands. Blogging has been following the same pattern.
Two things come to mind. First, I just need to get serious about everything. Second, I need something major to keep me focused. Having an Ironman on the horizon is probably the best thing that could happen, but that's pretty much out for the next year. For 2010, mIronman will have to cover that for me.
For the near term, training for the Green Bay Marathon will start January 9. That will give me something concrete to work toward, and something to blog about, as well.
I'll also be thinking about a 50-miler in 2010. That will most likely be the Fall 50, so I can keep the training going in the right direction, next year. I won't be throwing a ultra distance race into May like I did, last year. That was a mistake that plagued me all year. I'll follow a known successful plan of marathon, half-iron distance triathlon, iron distance triathlon, then ultra marathon.
And 2010 will see me putting focus back on keeping everyone up to date through the blog. 2009 will just have to go down as "The Year That Wasn't Quite..."
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.
