Who gives up an ocean to swim in a pond?


Well, I did.

Yes, I know, blogging over at Cranky Fitness was fun. The endless rounds of celebrity parties, limousines, jet-setting all around the world to hob nob with the Best People in the Latest Fashions, yeah, yeah. Been there, done that, got the race t-shirt. (I did just receive the shirt from the 5k that I did a couple months ago.)

When blogging about exercise gets in the way of actually exercising, then that's a sign that something needs to change. More exercise, less blogging.

Exercise du jour:
Cycle to work and back. Hopefully at a decent pace, but we'll see about that part. The important thing is to get on the dang bike.
Done! Rode the Max part-way, alas, but still rode the bike. (Note to self: get up earlier in the morning, to be able to ride the whole way in, and leave before it gets so dark!) Plus, did a hour's walking at lunch with a friend, training for the 10k walk.

now is the best time to bike commute! :) I think I might need expert advice on how to not freeze to death during the autumn & winter commute!

I hope you had a good commute today!

I totally understand why you would quit CF blogging. Seriously. I was nodding so hard I thought my head would fall off. I'm adding this blog to my reader tho & I'm hoping you update it occasionally so we can still stay in touch
:)

Egads, there's a crowd! I'd better lay out some chairs, scatter some cushions about, make the place lot a bit more hospitable.

I enjoyed your posts over there even when I wasn't commenting. But writing a regular blog post is time consuming if you want to do it right. And if you want them to be both good and frequent, it's a time suck.

Ah well. This will leave you more time to visit with friends, right? :D
