Did another early morning run today (5:00am, I know right) and the one difference that I noticed is the speed training really did help.  Halfway through the run I realized I was keeping up a good pace and wasn’t as winded as I normally am.  So I set a new PR today for both the 5k and 10k at 25:09 and 51:29 respectively, not a bad way to start the day.

Other then that, rode the bike to work today and just kept trucking.  I am really brain drained from the giant post yesterday so I will leave you all for now.

I am unsure if the benefits of speed training can be reaped after one session but, you know… 🙂

Today I finally made it past the dreaded plateau of -20! I have now lost just over 20 lbs. and am feeling even more confidant about hitting my next few goals.

My half way goal is to lose 35 lbs. and I am hoping to reach it by the end of May.

Once I reach that goal Nathaniel and I are going to make a dinner reservation at Foreign Cinema. Foreign Cinema is a restaurant I have wanted to eat at for at least three years and it is going to be a nice way of celebrating an important milestone!

My workout today was a 10 minute brisk walk followed by switching off sprinting and walking every other minute for another 20.

Last year was a breakthrough year for me personally, as far as writing was concerned. After years of wanting to finish a novel. Making it a resolution each and every December only to get to the end of the year with nothing. 2018 was the year of change. Two major things that happened. First was to let go of the absurd notion that in order to put words on the page I had to be inspired by my muse. This idea was thrown in the trash where it joined crumpled wads of unfinished drafts. Second was the realization that to finish a novel I needed a process in order to write consistently. There was some initial trial and error in setting up a schedule that worked into my life but by the end of 2018 I had finished two books and was heading into the second round of edits on my first. What I want to do in this blog is share the experience of being a new writer by exploring my writing process as it develops. I’ll also be posting some of my short fiction and possibly book reviews time permitting.
