If you follow my podcast, you will know that I have been having issues with Podbean and getting episodes to upload. Podbean was having site problems, and I'm so unsavvy that I couldn't figure out if it was me or Podbean. For a while it looked like they just wanted more money from me, and since there are other free hosting sites around (Mevio) I decided to move.
I think everything is sorted out now, and both episode 31 and 32 should be available for download. Technical problems are my least favourite part of the internet.
So - since I posted last I have started a Half Marathon training program. I'm using the run/walk plan from John Bingham's Marathoning for Mortals. I own the book and I think it's a reasonable plan for me to follow. There is one race here in London on May 5, but I'm holding out to see if my fave running store has one in April. They have better swag and the races are more fun. It's all about the free stuff for me!!
I have registered for the Resolution Run on December 31 - it has 5 and 10k options - I'm not sure yet which one I'll do. I'm in it for the experience and also for the fabulous jacket that comes with the entry fee. This will be my 3rd Resolution Run, and the jackets are really good quality and worth way more than the fee. This year's jacket is bright yellow.
I have decided to not go back to Crossfit for now. As soon as the date approached for my return I started with the anxiety and panic and over-eating. I want so badly to compete and keep up with everyone else in the gym that I make myself crazy. I can't keep up with 20 year olds. I was exhausted from trying - so much so that the day after a crossfit workout I was so exhausted I just didn't have the energy to run, and running is where I want to be. Ideally, private crossfit sessions would be best for me - but it's just too expensive. I am keeping up with all the things I can do at home - situps, burpees, squats, dips, pushups, skipping and anything I can do involving my own body weight. I have made a promise to myself to never slack off on that.
Hopefully, my problems with Podbean are over and done with and my podcasts will be showing up regularly again. Thanks to everybody who tried to download - I hope I didn't lose you as listeners!
