Day 91 – Time to change it up again

Sunday, September 25, 2016

Tomorrow begins a new week of training and with it a few changes for me. I need to up my game a little so I’m lifting weights again, I’m off coffee (for a month or two), I’m off alcohol (for now) and I’m going to meal plan and prep to help balance my macronutrients a little bit. 220 more words

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Day 85 – I’m still thinking about it

Monday, September 19, 2016

I don’t like to rush big decisions. Training to qualify for the Boston Marathon would probably not be a big deal for folks who’ve been running for years and years and already run close to a qualifying time, but that’s not me. 218 more words
