Hi hi! Sorry I have been quite MIA for some time, but I am as busy as ever and still trying to get back into my old gung-ho ways. So to play a little catch up:
I’m working at my old office job again, full time! And it’s been a huge adjustment. Waking up at or before 7 every day, trying to get together a decent lunch, while making my morning coffee (newest lifesaver), and then finding time to re-unite with old friends AND jump back into a 4-day lifting split with running in between is HARD.
I haven’t actually been running like I was hoping to do, but I have been at the gym fairly consistently as I get to know the barbell again. And it’s disappointing for me to tell you that I won’t be running the race I had planned on this coming weekend, but instead will possibly be lifting with a buddy! I will definitely be more prepared for a race in July. I promise (myself and you).
I do have some exciting news on the blogging/internet front: I was contacted by TribeSports after posting my StrongLifts Infographic and am happy to announce that I’ll be partnering with them on this blog (and continuing into my WordPress blog)! I actually really had no idea what TribeSports was when they contacted me, but quickly checked it out and signed up on the main site. It’s an online community where you can take challenges and post your workout logs, a similar idea to Fitocracy, but this is more forum-based than gaming-based, and I like it! Now I’m not getting rid of my Fitocracy account or anything, but for the sorts of activities that are less quantifiable than like, weight-lifting, I think TribeSports is a good alternative. It’s more talk than numbers, which is sometimes what I prefer for say, a speed skating practice. Each one may be an hour long, but each one has a different focus within speed skating, ya know?
Anyways, I’ve got a little thing to share with you guys: it’s a plyo workout that has some pretty sweet benefits. Aka PRIZES. If you have an account, take the challenge by midnight (GMT) tomorrow and you will automatically be entered. If not, get on that.
I’ll be doing it tonight after my lifting session. :)
And finally, to keep you up to date with the move: my designer (ahem, boyfriend…) is in the middle of an actual real-life move to NYC and things are going slower than expected. Slow and steady wins the race though, right? I wanna get this thing up and running the right way, and have things working smoothly by the time I completely switch over, so it’s taking a while to work out the kinks. Also also, I’M GOING TO NYC ON THURSDAY, wooo woooooo!
Ok, that’s all I got. Have a great day!
