I decided for 2011 that I would dealve into a different side of the fitness world and look at what I came up with. Yikes. So yea, just tell me I'm nuts.
When did I decide to fulfill a bucket list, I'm only 44 years old??? Okay so, I've done the marathons and I've done the triathlons, but the things in that list that I'd never thought I'd add to my vocabulary are kickboxing, boxing, and ultras. Who am I, what planet am I from and who is this person typing this blog?
First off, I'd like to start with the marathon bug and the only thing I have to say is I still want to do more of them. I want to do the NYC marathon, I want to do the Chicago marathon and many more. At first, after I completed my first, I thought I'd never do them again, but then I got that urge and did 2 more just this year to be exact...heck within 4 weeks of each other. So I have to be honest with me and I would like to continue doing more. So there!
As for triathlon, yep, that's another bucket list item, gotta do that half ironman. I've been setting myself up for that in the year 2012 and I'm still thinking it's got to be that year, not sure why that year, just is....but I also know that if it doesn't happen in 2012, it's okay because there's many years after that!!! I'll continue doing sprints and olympics here and there until I get to that half ironman.
Now...I've got something else up my sleeve and it's another world that I think I could easily become addicted to. Punching, jabbing, roundhousing, kicking and all that implies. I started a class called Cardio Blast Kickboxing and I've got to tell you, I think I'm hooked and only 3 days into it...what am I nuts!
I love it! So at the end of Feb, I'll start an actual Boxing Basics class and who knows, I might be able to kick some bootie....for real....not just in my dreams....LOL!
Okay finally onto something I never thought I'd ever think of or even talk about for that matter and guess what, it's slowly crawled into this endorphin addicted mind just tonight talking on facebook with a marathon maniac friend of mine for many years. The subject was doing an ultra or ultras. Eeek, what, running more than 26.2 miles on a regular basis....okay yea, I'm nuts or am I????
Uhhhh, dunno....not sure what's happening here but it's all in my brain stored for upcoming things in my life. We shall see what happens.
I wrote this blog just because I needed to get this off of my chest. I know it sounds like so much to go on in such a short period of time but don't worry these things won't happen overnight, they're just things I think about a lot of my days. Some days I feel like I'm missing something and so I ponder on the things I'd like to do and dream about. It's okay to dream right??? I think so.
Anyhoo, I'll quit rambling and just leave this blog as is.
Ps. I do think of other great things, like my life, my husband, my animals, my family, my friends, my elderly mother and other fun things I'd like to do but the above things consume me.
Thanks for listening !
