Where have I been for the last month? I know some people are wondering that have been loyal readers in the not too distance past. Here's the scoop, I wasn't motivated. However, let me be clear, I wasn't motivated to blog or be a blogger.
I have been running, mileage is there, hill repeats, short sprints, 400-1600m repeats, I've been going to work. Up to last month though, I was getting tired of the grinding of the blog. It wasn't fun and I needed a break to re-evaluate. After about a week or so, I even stopped stressing about it and just said, I'll go back when I feel like it.
I started the blog as a way to journal my training without using a pen and paper. I started adding stuff to that so that anyone reading might gain a little knowledge on shoes, races, training, products, etc. However, it got to be too much. I was way more concerned with trying to connect with more and more companies, network, and grow, rather than simply write. I liked the blog a lot more when it was simply me writing about what I wanted to write about, rather than stressing about making the blog more and more.
For the foreseeable future, I am done with the hustle. I am a dad, husband, runner, coach, PE teacher, and down the line somewhere, a blogger. I do not need a second job, I started this as a hobby and that is what it will be.
My apologies to those looking for their fix of the Daily Fitness Journal for the last month, but it is what it is.
Saturday is the Triathlon Relay and I am ready. We are hoping to get back on the podium where we belong. I will send out some pics at some point. Until then, get running. I am.
