This has officially been the most insane year ever!! I’ve been hit from every possible angle both personally and professionally. Just the other day, I realized that October is over…WHAT?! It was January like yesterday and then I blinked and…POOF, just like that, it’s mid-November!
So it’s been quiet here on my blog page and I apologize profusely for the crickets. I’m now in the process of feverishly writing and posting all the race reports that are now (very) late but hey, better (very) late than never, right??? Stay tuned folks, blog posts are coming!!
Given that we’re now less than two months from the end of 2014, it’s probably a good idea to pause for a moment and take the pulse on my 21 Promises before the rest of the year gets away from me.
6. Reach a body fat percentage of 17.5% . STATUS: Frankly, I don’t want to know where I’m at on this one… okay, that’s a lie, I got assessed this week and it’s not close 🙁 My injured leg combined with no sleep and mass quantities of stress have severely hampered my ability to make progress on this one. Gotta get refocused but with the holidays right around the corner, this is gonna be a challenge. Oh wait, I have an idea…
|What?! I COULD work. Plus, it’s fast, easy and fun!|7. Get fitness assessment score of 450 by June 1st. STATUS: Done! I scored a 454 in January 2014 (right before I got injured…WHEW!)
|Not cool, Dr. Evil…|
9. Complete 2 indoor rock climbing classes. STATUS: Must schedule classes ASAP!!!!
11. Learn to swim (
pool and open water). STATUS: I’m not sure you’d call it “swimming” per se, but I did travel for a full 400m while NOT drowning during my triathlon so I’ll call this one partially complete! I have been swimming twice a week since the triathlon as well so I’ll be a swimmer any day now. As for open water, probably a little late in the year to try that one. Perhaps if I wore a wetsuit…yeah, probably not.
