Time for more monthly musings. It’s been a busy start to 2016 for sure.

 

 

Good – Hitting Training Targets (and Snowboarding)

I’ve been very happy that I’ve been able to hit my training numbers, for the most part, since starting my new plan. Having particular rpm (reps per minute) to aim for and a plan I don’t have to think about has been very useful. The accountability always helps too. The goals being spread out over the next six months is nice too. Because it allows me to see beyond a ten or twelve-week plan, and see that as part of a larger progression.

Snowboarding has been fun so far. I’m by far the weakest of those of us out here, but I am working hard on improving. I got to grips with the very basics of edges faster than the hubby, but he’s progressed much more quickly than me. Don’t tell him, but he looks kind of cool on a board now 🙂

 

 

Bad – Not a lot (as Paul Daniels once said)!

Pretty much nothing to be honest.I do worry about income periodically, but otherwise absolutely love the remote working I’m doing, and the freedom that gives me to train, live my life, and hang with the kitties. And I’m still contributing and learning while doing so.

Meh – #firstworldproblems

These shouldn’t be something that I really find an issue, as plenty of people would love to be in my position, but hassles quitting one gym and trying to find a replacement were tedious. Then ordering a rack which was delivered in separate deliveries over the course of ten days have been annoyances and extra work that I’ve had to worry about.

On top of working hard pre-snowboarding, and trying to ensure there is a good flow of work to come back to (joys of self-employment, though there are many benefits!), I just didn’t need that hassle.
