Crossfit, Marathons, etc. etc.

I'm going to be retooling this blog to just be about running, working out, running, and running. The new name The Positive Split reflects my training (or lack thereof) and all the running blogs and websites I've been to lately. Natalie, over at The Negative Split, is what I would call a "real" runner, and even though I still don't quite fit in that category, I have been inspired by her and tons of other blogs she links to. Runner's World, USTAF, Crossfit (and their inspired nuttiness) Triathalons, Xterra... I feel like it's all within my reach if I can just control my ADD a bit to focus on something or a few somethings. But my ADD and the internet cause me to come up with all sorts of tidbits and cool stuff, so I want to start cataloging them. Peace and Running.

Single Ladies Dance

Here's my sister Trellis doing her bestest Beyonce impression. She's an fine art teacher at Savannah Arts Academy, but the dance department knew she has moves and asked to her perform with them in their annual Senior Review.

Starting to Train Again I Am

So, I'm back up to 201.2 pounds even after the marathon. Wow, seems like April and 185ish wasn't that long ago. I did drop 3% body fat this weekend somehow, but we'll see what that looks like on Thursday after a week of eating normally but with no exercise. I need to milk the marathon a little, and I am actually still really sore.

Last Thursday - 200.6 and 25.5% bodyfat (according to my Tanita scale, we'll see how accurate it is)

I finished the marathon in 5 hours, 26 minutes, and 12 seconds. Almost 30 minutes slower than Nashville in April. But considering no consistent training and 10-15 lbs heavier, I'll take it.

I just signed up for the Walt Disney World Goofy Challenge for 2010. That involves running the Half Marathon on Sat and then running the Full Marathon on Sun. We'll see.
