The Struggle: Episode 3

Last week I robbed you of the chance to see another video and maybe even hinted that this week the video would be something special.  Well, it is different, somewhat.  Maybe I didn't realize how much work is involved with video production.  It takes a lot of time to throw these things together, stick with me though because they will get better.

The Struggle: Picture Edition

The footage I shot for this weeks video was out of focus, so no video this week.  It really kills me too because it was going to be a really good episode.  I filmed it right after riding my bike and with all of the endorphins flowing through me, talking to the camera didn't feel totally awkward, and I felt more like myself.  I'll try to do something special for next weeks video, but I'm working on two classes right now and generating content for a couple of different sites so I am stretched pretty thin.  I like video though so hopefully I'll get the time.

My view from 4am this morning.

I've made it to the gym twice this week.  My plan is to go on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for now so I am on track with that.  I've been riding and running more lately.  My thumb is healed enough to get back out on the water.  Overall I'd say I'm doing pretty well.  There is still plenty of room for improvement though.  If there wasn't it wouldn't be a struggle now would it?

The Struggle: Episode 2

I meant to get this out yesterday but didn't like the footage so I re-shot it all.  In the future I'll try to mix things up a bit.

Thanks for watching!

The Struggle: Word Edition


Something I have been lacking.
Back in the day, before the wheels fell off I was never the best or the fastest but I had heart.
Lately that seems like the missing part of the puzzle.

How do I get it back?

Welcome to the Struggle

Welcome to the Struggle.  I plan to document my struggle with fitness in hopes that it will keep me on track, and maybe inspire someone who is also struggling to get fit.

The video explains it, so watch and enjoy.
