Almost a former blogger

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.


Why do we -- "we" meaning humans -- have so much stuff? With getting my house ready to sell, my workouts have taken a different meaning -- carrying boxes of stuff to my storage building. Trip after trip. Up and down stairs. While I haven't gotten in a good run in a week, my arms and legs are tired of carrying stuff. It's almost stupid how much stuff I have. And now that I'm sitting in my house without that stuff, I question how bad I need some of it. We'll see...

So in my last post I mentioned that I'm "stuck" in week 4 of 100 push-ups. Well, I think with this gradual process of moving and various things I need to do, I think I'm going to stay stuck in this week by choice. My goal, until I'm ready to move forward, will be to do two days of push-ups a week. And since it's been good so far, I think I'll do week 4 days 1 and 2 over and over until the time is right to do day 3 and my exhaustion test.

I'm not sure yet what my living situation will be in a few weeks, but it's looking more and more like I'll be in Bedford for a short time. With running, that will actually work out nice to run the 3-mile "loop" regularly. I've written about it before (click here) and would welcome with open arms the chance to run it a few times a week. No matter what happens, I'm really looking forward to tackling hills again. My Richmond neighborhood just hasn't done it for me.

A new lookLastly, I have a new look for at least a little while. With the transition to a new job, I decided to not shave for a while. My last full shave was Oct. 2, the day of my interview. With the exception of a few attempts at a goatee, this is the longest I've ever gone without shaving.
