Busy body

While my body has been less busy in the training department, my mind and body have been busy rushing from meeting to meeting and call to call...

WORK
This is what it has been all about in the last few weeks. Some great meetings and calls have me feeling optimistic that the next month will bring a new professional home for my marketing skills.

Executive comment of the week:
"We'll let People Magazine handle that one as that is where the story belongs."
- A Sports Illustrated executive in reference to the Tiger Woods saga and their coverage of it

PERSONAL
I've cut back on the drinking and sugar in hope to start some sort of solid training plan in the coming weeks. The family is good, a little stressed with the holidays, but who isn't?
TRAINING
I made it through a couple of testing sessions last week to get some preliminary number to build training plans with ranges, man those hurt, but I felt pretty strong. The numbers came back better than expected, in a better spot than this time last year. This week has been a wash as I've had a ton of meetings and calls that there has not been enough time in the day to get a session on the books. Any spare time I do have has been getting the dog out for a game of fetch in the park and chasing Weck around.Off to Colorado for the holiday next week, then home and upstate through the New Year...man, time flies!

One Crazy Month...

WORK
I'm still looking at a few opportunities and hope to make something stick in early January. I have two different directions to go and am excited about both but know one will be a bigger struggle to endure...in due time.

Last week, I had some good meetings and I heard a very interesting comment from one of the best known sports media executives in the world:
"With the internet and social media pushing information, consumers feel that they are entitled to content and can readily access it; therefore, print and pay for content models are dead."


PERSONAL
I'm not sure where to start or end...I just know I've been drinking A LOT more wine over the past month since spending more time with the in-laws, but I've also spent a good deal of time on my bike getting my thoughts together and enjoying the solitude.

Weck turned one and is walking/running like a drunken sailor all over. He is one tough dude.

TRAINING
I've sort of started training, nothing concrete, just getting out on the bike for a few hours everyday or inside on the rollers when the weather is not cooperating and running a few times a week. I have yet to hit the pool and I'm slacking on the strength training.

My plan is to do some power testing on the bike trainer today, get some preliminary numbers and build my training plan with the rest of the year being some good build/easy miles and really having a concrete training schedule start the first of the year.
