Daddy's Back

I'm back. (Or so I hope.)

I was --> <-- this close to saying, well, the blog is suspended until further notice. Then I started perusing my Google Reader, and I saw this post by Cindy, and I said to myself "That's not a bad idea. Let's call it a hiatus, and move on."

I enjoyed blogging, and I enjoy the friendships I've made while blogging. There's no reason to throw that out.

So, I figure that my old posting habits aren't going to stand up to my schedule right now.. so, I'll post when I can, hopefully twice a week or so like that. I probably won't be around to all of your blogs every day, but I will be around. I've lurked a little bit on everyone's blogs, but I have been out of the loop for a lot of things.

As far as what I'm going to write about, it's almost a new slate. My running has gone down to, well, zero. Let's be honest here. Zero. I have rode my bike on a trainer, oh, maybe 4 times this winter. That's an honest 4, at least. Of course, by not altering my dietary intake, but changing the exercise output, I've put on a few pounds over the last few months. Cruel, but predictable.

I want to get back to running. I've got the schedule crunch going, so I'm hoping to get 2 runs a week in starting at some point in the near future. I need to do some strength/flexibility training, as my legs just hurt any more, and need to become more limber.

I have started walking at lunchtime, though. A good 5K walk with some solid hills and the like. Hey, it's a start.

Future posts may be about running, perhaps a few on child raising and the mis-adventures thereof. I've started doing some cooking, maybe some thoughts on that.

So, here's to the end of a hiatus, and a new beginning. Keep on rockin'.

Good to see you! I'll be happy to read when you find time to write. ;o)

well it's about time. I too, have fallen off of the regular posting bandwagon and have been reduced to about once a week. But I've come to accept that. just like you will soon come to accept the latent homosexual undertones of these posts.

Welcome back!! Figured that John would give you a hard time right away ;)

Welcome back, Raul! Hope the warmer summer months can put some spring back in your walking/running step!

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

Yeah, maybe it was a mistake to return because I see Carolina Cletus is projecting and hitting on you already. That would scare me away for good.

It's a good thing your last name is "gonemobile" because a moving target will be harder for him to sodomize.

Felicitations on your return. (<--I was determined to be the only commenter not to use the words "welcome" or "back". D'oh! Just used them! Does it count if they're in quotation marks?)
