It's weird. Here lately I have been really busting my butt with exercise. I have a complete schedule, goals and training log.
Monday: swim 1000 yards in the morning, run 2 miles at night.
Tuesday: swim 1000 yards in the morning, run 3.4 miles at night
Wednesday: do nothing day
Thursday: swim 1000 yards in the morning, attend a spin class at night
Friday: swim 1000 yards in the morning, run 3.4 miles at night
Sat and Sunday are rest days.
I found a great site called beginnertriathlete.com, which allows you to log in your workouts. Since October I have ran 43.74 miles (4 hours and 39 minutes), I have swam 23, 400 yards (13.2 miles in 10 hours and 25 minutes). I am really interested to see what I can do in a year. I also hope it shows my boys that they should not spend all their time playing Wii, but should get out and exercise.
But you know what the training log really helps me do the most? It keeps me accountable. Now I am guessing that if you have stumble on to my little ole blog, you know that this word is of much conversation lately, especially around BBC.
Accountability, according to dictionary .com means responsibility to someone or for some activity. Accountability is a funny thing. People want to hold others accountable, but do not dare suggest that they hold themselves accountable. Many people keep asking for BBC and specifically for Pastor Gaines to be held accountable for their actions in the recent church scandal. They do not believe the apology, the admission of error or even the new policies and procedures put in place to make the church a much safer place then before are a sign of accountability. They only want to throw stones and call for their version of "accountability", yet they are free to say whatever they want on their blogs, whether it be true or blatantly false, and should not be held to any standards, any apologies, any admissions of wrong, or even try to do anything to prevent their statements from happening again.
