    Life happens

    For the last three weeks I have struggled to get in work outs. So much so that not getting a workout in has become as depressing as getting on the scale. I suppose that this is even progress... wanting to work out so much that failing to do so is frustrating. In July just having the motivation was a goal, guess I am over that. The next few weeks should present opportunities, and with the season change and lack of light, my bike work out in the morning will be replaced with an hour swim. Perhaps I'll start getting in a 30 minute ride at lunch if weather permits. If I get the swim in the morning that will leave the evenings for resistance training.

    Thanks for the invite

    Congrats on the success of all your hard work this summer, and on doubling us all up on the swim challenge. How did you become such a good swimmer? I poop out not much further after 1 km, but I'm hoping to improve so I can do some longer triathlons next year. We'll see ...

    Back on track

    It would appear that I am back on track, the blip up I did not track is gone and I am down 1.6 lbs from my lowest-to-date weight. Motivation is coming back, and I no longer feel like I am just hanging on to the gains I have made.

    Personal Best

    Longest continuous swim yet. Despite being out of the pool for nearly three weeks, and being sick most of last week, the hour long swim felt surprisingly good. Calves and feet started to cramp last ten minutes, but felt really good to cover 3.5 kilometers in a single outing.

About Me

While I have always enjoyed physical activity I was never more than an average athlete, perhaps it was the childhood asthma, maybe it was poor coaching, or perhaps I was just lazy. After completing college I became more structured in my exercise, and ever since I have gone through two year cycles where I go to the gym 3+ days a week, followed by a similar period where I just can not find the time. Usually it is career change or a continental move that causes this. With the arrival of twin daughters in 2007, and after attaining my greatest weight ever I made the decision that if I did not do something about my physical condition immediately I might not be able to keep up with them by the time they reached their second birthday. A very sobering and depressing thought. The usual aches and pains ensued, but instead of being hooked on exercise after three weeks it took a full eight weeks. Exercise while not a passion, is once again a required source of enjoyment and balance in my life. The discovery of DailyBurn has tapped into my competitive nature and helped me visualize my progress as well as motivate me.
