Just when you thought James had given on his blog, he is back. Hi everyone, I don’t know what to say, I took a little hiatus yet again. Life seems pretty easy, but family, work, exercising, keeping up with email and private chats with friends consumes a lot of my time. I can’t promises that I will be better a posting but I would like to write some things and keep my blog going.
Health – Boy, my asthma is something. Darn thing can turn bad on me in a moments notice. I have a half written post on last weeks lung issues that I will be posting soon. I figured that posting my lung adventures would maybe help someone struggling with their asthma, especially adult-onset asthmatics.
So far, this week has been much better.
Walking – Whew, it has been a real struggle. I have been training for a 10k for the last 5 weeks and even though I have done well with following the mileage schedule. I have yet to see the fruits of my labor, basically speed. The key to this is energy level and that is just something that I don’t have most of the time. I suspect the down-turns in my health play a contributing factor in this. No complainants really, I am grateful for what I can do, but I do get frustrated from an athlete perspective.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not giving up. Even though some might find my workouts excessive for a person with my health issues, it does pay dividends when my health does go away. I am able to function fairly well until my pesky lungs come out of their state of funk. So, I do enjoy being an athlete and racing events like my fellow athletes. Yeah, I might come in almost last, but that is how it goes. I am very thankful to be this active and I rarely take it for granted.
Anywho, that’s about it.
Please Take Care of yourselves!!! Your health is such a precious thing!
Have a great weekend everyone!
