The career has gone well with a new role, and significant momentum. That role has required more travel, and that travel and the effort required to establish momentum has impeded progress in other areas. Like fitness . . .
Overall, life got in the way. The Achilles remains an issue, but gets better when I work on it (surprise, surprise). The lack of focus resulted in a step back with fitness. The meal planning has been unplanned, and there hasn't been much movement.
Sooooo . . . where does that put us? I've made the decision to NOT train for the Space Coast Marathon. My legs need to be in better shape. I WILL be entering the Battelfrog in November to see if I can improve upon my 3rd place finish in my age group. It'll be more competitive because they're combining the 5K and 10K races into a single 8K, but I have five months to train.
But first, this Achilles needs to get fixed. The month of July will have a focus on strength and mobility. Once again, back to rehab. This time it'll be self-motivated. Unfortunately, days are slammed with work and I don't have time to see the doc, so this time the rehab will be self-motivated.
So tomorrow, it all begins again. Meal plan and movement. Every single day! Back at it, boys and girls. Back at it.
