When I'm Not Blogging

Sarah posted her version of this post just the other day and I thought I would follow suit. It seemed particularly appropriate as I've had an absence of blogging as of late so I might as well do a little explainin'.

I'm a busy bee and I like it that way so here are just a few of the many things I'm doing when I'm not chatting with you fine people. *Cue Titanic reference

Training Myself

With that little Ironman race coming up I've been spending a lot of time trying to get my life in order before training actually starts. In the meantime, I'm getting in 2 solid swim, bike, run and strength sessions in 6 days each week. I started up with my awesome Coach on January 1st and so far so good. The workouts aren't long but between commuting (I live a good drive from the pool, gym and most safe outdoor running routes), changing clothes, showering and eating it takes up much more time than I realized. Luckily I'll be moving before ish really gets real...hopefully.

Training Others

I'm up in the air about what to do with the whole personal training thing but I have still been doing some legitimate work in the field. Most notably has been running the Commit to Fit activity challenge and I just got a new online client from an auction I participated in. I'm really excited to work with her and possibly generate some new business. I'm also in talks with a local facility here about doing some in person sessions so we'll see how that turns out.


I love to sleep. I take my sleep very very seriously and when my new coach said he wanted me to focus on getting 8-10 hours a night, I knew there was one part of training I wasn't going to have any trouble with.

Seriously. I am totally honest joking when I say I'd go to bed at sunset and partially hate summer because it's too bright to sleep. I know and respect the importance of sleep when it comes to training and I don't care what it means I have to sacrifice, I will sleep.


I do have a day job. You knew that right? Unfortunately my life isn't just training and sleeping and training some more. I also work at a local nonprofit doing super important, life changing database work. Oxymoron? The organization I work for does indeed do super important life changing work, just can't say I'm one of the people in the field. But even though it is just part time, 30 hours of my week are spent there.

Unlike Emily, I really do like my job. I'm lucky to have it because it is incredibly flexible, my coworkers are fun and it accommodates my training schedules. So I win.

I went a little heavy on the gifs today! I just think they're fun sometimes and I'm always proud of my pop culture knowledge when an idea for one to use pops into my head.

What about you? What kinds of things do you do on the reg?

    I wish I could get more sleep... I think I'd be a more pleasant person :)
