So I think I'm ready to get back on the ball again. To regain some Fitness, okay, I really need to get back into trying to gain some IRONMAN fitness again. Right now I would settle for some consistent training days.
I wish sometimes it was just as easy as paying some cash out and setting up a home gym and becoming IRONFIT. For a special price you can gain IronMan Fitness at Costco. I wish it was that easy sometimes (only sometimes).
So after a week of being in Florida visiting my folks. It was in the mid 70's and 80's and I didn't do a dang bit of exercise except one 4 mile run. I had a weird feeling when I ran. I realized I had a "bowl full of jelly" like "Santa Clause" when I ran. That was the present I gave myself this holiday season. 15 pounds of pastries and holiday treats.
But time to step up before I get to comfortable being lazy over the holidays. It is so easy to get addicted in doing nothing.
No snow on the ground too, what's up with that?
So everybody have a nice New Year and safe one.
One or two of my resolutions for the 2007 year.
Actually have a good training schedule!
Survive my training schedule!!
The word "balance" is always on the agenda!
Let the games begin 01/01/07!!
So on a sad note this was sent to me as warning while we go out running. A body found on Christmas day at the same location our group goes trail running and where I plan to do most of my training for my 50 mile ultra.
"Victim in forest preserve ruled death by strangulation
December 28, 2006
By Kim Janssen, special to The Star
A woman found dead in the woods near Palos Park Monday morning died from being strangled, police said Tuesday.
The body of Juana Ornelas, 31, a cosmetics saleswoman and mother of one, was found about 9 a.m. Christmas Day at a picnic grove in Swallow Cliff Forest Preserve near 119th Street and LaGrange Road, forest preserve police spokesman Steve Mayberry said.
A man walking his dog found the body in a grassy area and contacted police."
Pretty tragic, especially on Christmas day. I know sadly it can happen anywhere, but I guess sometimes we need a reminder there are more predators in these woods than coyotes and killer deers.
Everybody train safe and I plan to pack my trusty knife when I run through these woods now. Hopefully years of Martial Arts training has taught me a thing or two how to use this thing.
We can't let the bad things in life keep us from the great things we can experience.
