I realized the other day that I haven’t written in a while. Not sure what caused this – likely the overall general malaise with the current weather situation… I don’t know about you but when I look around, all I see is piles and piles of white. Not what I want to be seeing in almost-the-middle-of-March.
Yes, I know this means we’ve got many more weeks of skiing to look forward to… But really, I’m ready for some two-wheeled fun. I’ve been resisting the trainer in the basement but that June 7/8 Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour weekend is looming and I know for a fact that my riding partners have been sweating it out to the max in their basements…. If the snow doesn’t start melting soon, I’ll have to get on my bike and pedal to nowhere.
So what else has been happening? Well, really not too much. I’ve been slowly increasing my running volume and thanks John Zahab’s expertise I’m working on fixing some of my muscle imbalances and improving my running efficiency and economy… Who knew running was such a technical sport? I’m loving the running – I don’t mind getting out on cold cold days when I’m bundled up in my running gear. I particularly find running at lunch time on the trails at South March Highlands a great way to get in a work-out and enjoy nature for a bit.
Hmm, what else? Well, I’m reading a lot. I don’t know if you know but I set a challenge for myself to read all 40 books on the Canada Reads Top 40 List… This has been a great challenge and motivator – problem is that I’m a slow reader… I just finished book the 12th book – Galore by Michael Crummey (I’ll post a review later today).
I’m going to New York City in a few weeks. This will be lots of fun. I visited NYC a couple of years ago with my mom and I’ve wanted to return ever since that first visit. So I’m super stoked to go for a few more days. I’ve got a few things on my “to check out” list (maybe this should be renamed to – to eat list)… but if you have any suggestions – shoot them over.
Really, that’s about all the action I’ve got to report. No races coming up for a while – check out my newly redesigned Goings On page to get the scoop…
Oh, one thing that is happening – I’m looking for more freelance writing work… Ideally I’d like a full-time work-from-home/remote/telecommute writing job. This can be technical writing, website content, social media content/management, ghost writing, online marketing collateral – or anything else that needs to be written. You know I’m good with words so if you know someone who needs a writer – feel free to connect us.
