Oh boy what a week.
-Unfortunately, a build of stress has prevented me from staying on the quit smoking band wagon. I really hope to (re)start my quitting program again next week.
-My marathon training suffered a bit last week. I did my runs, but maybe 1-2 less miles than what was planned.
-I have given some consideration about purchasing a training plan from NYRR. I think the price is about $99 bucks, which is cheaper than previous years.
-To keep me motivated with training for NYC Marathon, I have reached out to one of my running groups to see if anyone would like to set up some sort of a training accountability subgroup. See, I’m still trying to be social in this group.
-Aw, Facebook reminded me that I was in Perú a few years ago. What a fun trip! I really would like to visit that country again.
-A general tip to my fellow US buddies thinking about visiting Machu Picchu. Do NOT ask the tour guide anything about ancient aliens and their influence on building the citadel. Note: I was NOT the person who asked this question during the tour.
-Speaking of international travel, I really hope that we will not have to cancel (again) our trip to Spain in September.
-Who’s ready for the Olympics?
-Speaking of the Olympics, it looks like Brisbane will host the 2032 Olympics. Just as an FYI: Paris will host 2024, and Los Angelas will host 2028. I have to admit that I was not a huge fan of Sydney’s Olympics. I think it was because of the extreme time difference. The news outlets had reported results before the events aired on TV. Yes, I do realize that the world is not supposed to stand still for Eastern Time Zone, but it hard to watch intense events (e.g. 100m dash, 4X100 & 4X400 relay) when I already knew the results.
Question of the day:
If you watch the Olympics, what are your favorite events to watch?
