Here I go again. These are the musings of Tanya Logan, mediocre athlete. Yes mediocre. Way to sell my blog I know. I am not podium material, nor am I at the back of the pack and that’s ok. My return to blogging is to document my journey to my first marathon while passing through Spartan. I am registered to do the Spartan Ultra Beast (Marathon distance) but I haven't decided for sure if I will do it. I do not work full time but I do get to play soldier one weekend a month with the New York Army National Guard. I am a Level 1 Crossfit Trainer but I am currently not coaching as I wish to be more personally proficient at the sport before coaching others full time. My training consists of 3 run days and 3 crossfit days. The main gist of my training is M-W-F crossfit. Tuesday short run/hills, Thursday long run, and weekend day shorter run. Using a weekday for long run to accommodate racing season. Yes I could do more, but it would jeopardize my mediocre position in sports and also take away from family time. I strongly feel that it is important to take time for fitness but it’s also important to find balance. My kids only have one childhood and I want to be there for it.
I’m going to use this blog in a couple of ways. I will try and post every night. This is to share what I’ll be doing the next day, for those local that want to join me on my runs or workouts. I’ll be doing race reviews maybe, i don't know if I can recap very well. I will continue to share my DIY instructions for my fitness and obstacle equipment. If I have time I’ll review some shoes and stuff. I will also be pimping my charitable organizations. The Canadian Mudd Queens have been working really hard to raise funds for the 100k Sears Relay thing with a long name to benefit kids cancer research. I’ll post our fundraising efforts as we get them in. Below is the link for straight donations. I will not post about nutrition as I struggle greatly with it myself. Maybe if I get the hang of it someday I will. I will not use this blog to post about cheesy reality shows. Maybe.
June 18th will be Crossfit day. Please feel free to contact me if you are local and want to join!
