This is nice.
Pretty little background.
My kids love blowing dandelions. Our neighborhood loves growing them.
This shiny new blog is an attempt to describe pursuit of my active athletic goals which HOPEFULLY get wrapped up this year!
All that stands in my way is LIFE.
Here's a quick example and then it's time for bed.
Played tee ball with the kids for about 45 minutes tonight.
The intent was to introduce LIVE PITCHING because that's what the "other team" was pushing in our last game.
The kids on my team, my kids included, are not ready for live pitching.
They need to hit off the tee. Eye on ball. Level swing. Drop the bat. Run to first.
But fine. In the next game or so, we'll try it out.
That's where we take advantage of having my own kids on the team. So they get the trial run.
We wrap up practice and the kids run inside, giving me the pleasure of cleaning up all of the equipment.
When I get inside, I'm gonna change into my running gear and prepare for the following evening:
- Drive to the local Best Buy. Park my car. Run ~7 miles back home.
- Go to bed.
- Wake at 2AM. Run back to Best Buy and drive back home.
Except my daughter Honeybunny smashed her eye on the kitchen table 15 seconds after the kids went inside.
She's at the ER for an x-ray and CT Scan.
She'll be fine. I'm sure.
And that's how life influences the training schedule and pursuit of your goals.
Without sufficient training, short of luck, you won't reach your goals.
And try as you might to accomodate life, this world is just too unpredictable.
To conclude this example.
Now we're off to bed much later than expected.
And while I'll wake at 2AM and go run, it won't simulate the run I needed.
Should be fun to see how this all works out.
