My best blog post ever!

Last weekend I wrote what in retrospect must have been my best blog post ever. I hadn't posted anything for a while but was happy that I decided to actually sign up for a race: the 4 miler in Central Park on Superbowl Sunday morning before the game.

I confessed how fat I've gotten in the 3 years since my Ironman finish (it was basically my ironversary) and how while I've got some training challenges in front of me, bigger problems for me are my diet, body composition and general health. I dreamed about where this race could lead, perhaps even another Iron journey as kid#2 will be in college in fall of 2016.

I posted that blog entry. And nothing happened.

Later that night, I checked my site to see what was up. The post was gone, In its place was a draft list of the races to lead up to another ironman that I jotted down for a future post but the original epic post vanished.

Blogger ate it, the best blog entry ever.

I guess I need to post more to try to capture lightening in a bottle again. Do some training, watch my diet, and get back in the game, Be the athletic muse for the writer that I can be. Accomplish something that could lead to something epic. Look forward, not backward.

Game on.

Get back out there bud, you know you'll love it once that extra weight is under control. Do some races with your daughter in NC, you can even borrow my bike so you won't have to ship yours. Hop back on the horse!

Looking forward is the right approach. Keep it up!

What about doing some weight training at home when the ankles prevent running or cycling?
Just get the ball rolling with exercise every day...you can do it in hotels...
Think about it, RS

Joe,
How about doing some weight training at home or in the hotel every day? It can help get the ball rolling with a pattern of exercise.
I returned to the gym to rehab the shoulder that should have been fixed 7 years ago and it lead to a new found enjoyment which lead to getting out on the bike a lot more too.
If the ankles are good on a particular day, cycle/run...but you'll be getting back into the habit and will be burning extra calories.
