A lot has happened since my last update. There's been an election, we're back in a drought here in SE Texas, the Houston Texans football team is 10-1 on the year. The only thing that is still the same as before? I am still not running. Seemingly never-ending struggle with plantar fasciitis. Now in a boot, will give it a try for about 6 weeks and may then consider surgery. As a result of not running - and a few other factors - my weight has increased quite a bit, to just under 180 lbs. The mountain biking helps, but you can't go from running 40 to 50 miles per week to zero, and not expect to gain some weight.
Kath and spent about 3 weeks in South Africa and Zimbabwe in early November which was great - some photographs etc. to follow soon. However it meant practically zero chance to exercise, and a lot of delicious food and drink choices...
So before things get totally out of hand, I am reverting to the tried and tested 'No S' Diet: No Snacks, No Seconds and No Sweets on any day of the week except those starting with an 'S'. Plus I will be a bit more diligent with my exercise routing, add some rowing in addition to the biking, to up the aerobic exercise volume. Here we go.
