Hello, blogosphere! Yes, I'm still here. I haven't forgotten about the Cyclin' Missy blog. I just haven't been posting. Between a funeral, intense Halloween costuming, a stolen purse, and getting to know a pile of new friends, I've had a lot on my plate. No excuses. Just life.
I keep trying to get back on an upswing, activity-wise. Not that I've been a total bum. The hubby and I finished up three seasons of sports with the Grand Rapids Sport and Social Club and came home with three sets of Dead Effin Last trophies. That's right! We were the worst team in dodge ball, broom ball, and flag football. But we also got a Most Social Team award, so even though we stink, people like us. :) We're now playing volleyball, which I haven't played since high school, but it has all come back just like riding a bike. We've already won a game!
But on the endurance fitness side of life, it's time to get a new round of training started. The hubby and I are planning to do a Tough Mudder in the Detroit area this summer. The hubby has been working through some back, hip, and knee issues, but he's doing PT and getting back into action now - hopefully stronger than before. We just re-joined our old gym with hopes to continue rehabbing and getting into the kind of shape that a 12 mile run with 25 military-style obstacles requires.
I've got a deep case of that metaphorical itch that you feel when your body is ready to go and impatiently waiting for the rest of you to get moving.
So hopefully, I'll be spending a little more time around here in the near future.
