All right, this week's Warrior Wednesday will be short. In fact, for the next few weeks, I won't be putting much time into the blog. Tomorrow marks 38 weeks for my pregnant wife, and the MD thinks something could happen in the next week. The point is, my attention won't be on my writing or blog all that much for a bit.
So, to keep things brief, I've had two decent runs since the last blog in my training for the Warrior Dash this May. This past Friday, I did 4.01 miles in 36:27(still a far cry from my average pace in the past, but I'll get there), and then on Sunday, I ran 3.2 miles in 34:00. Sunday's pace was quite a bit slower, but I ran with a good friend I haven't seen in years.
My goal from here is to get my pace down to 8-8:30 miles before May for the 3-4 mile range. Of course, I don't expect to maintain that pace for the Warrior Dash, given the obstacles. My other goal is getting more gym time. I've been once during a lunch break this week, and that's it. Hopefully I'll have a bit more motivation and continue to improve until I can get a little closer to where I was before my back problems.
Also, deciding to forego the GoPro camera, I invested in a cheap Action Shot HD(seems more HD-ish, really) to make a video of the Warrior Dash. I'll try and get a run with it soon and post a snippet(because you all certainly care to see that :-P.
And, as always, be sure to visit www.warrior.stjude.org/brianbeam and consider donating to my fundraiser for St Jude through the Warrior Dash for a chance to win one of my books or your name in book 3 of Korin's Journal.
And lastly, to make up for the general crappiness of this blog post, check out my son Jonas showing his love for Mega Man in this YouTube video. You don't have to be a fan of Mega Man for it to make you smile :).
Best wishes to all!
