Catching up + THR turns 1

So in the last 4 days I swam twice and did two stationary bike workouts. I know I'm finding excuses not to bike even tho Mel says there are none to be had. I just don't feel ready (job-wise, not fitness-wise) to do it. I'm still acclimating to the new environment so my new bike-in goal is next week.

My two swims were pretty good. I'm averaging about 18 minutes for my 750m so I'm pretty happy. The biking is fun as well as it allows me to catch up on my TV viewing (I record shows/movies onto a portable DVD player that I watch while working out).

These news are pretty bland I know. The real reason I'm writing an entry today is to wish The Happy Runner a happy 1st blogging birthday and at the same time put myself up for some fabulous prizes that he is generously giving away. Time flies and blogging allows one to look back, literally, and realize the effects of time gone by. I wonder what my blog will look like when it turns a year old.

I hope to find time to be a bit more creative with the theme. Updating my PBs and picture from 3 weeks ago would be a good start indeed, I'll start with that right now ;)


  1. AH! my last comment vanished. Well done on the swim - that's a great time. And a great distance. I get so bored after 8 laps! You've encouraged me to focus when I get to the pool today...

    Thank you so much for your kind injury-supportive words on my blog.

    I hope you're feeling more settled in soon!

  2. Just stumbled across your blog and thought i'd say hi! always great to find other Canadian runner/bloggers! have a great weekend.

  3. Good job on the swimming and stationary biking.

    Hope you can start biking to work next week!

  4. Everything takes time, swimming, cycling (to work not racing), running and of course blogging. Give yourself the credit due, you're doing great!
