I can’t believe I haven’t updated in a month! Last month I finished strong and ended up playing tennis 6 days a week, but I didn’t end up playing a tournament.

This month I’m concentrating my efforts¬†on running and I’ve been at it 4-5 days a week, although pretty low mileage compared with what I’ve done in the past. One of my tennis friends wanted to do a race for the first time so we trained and did the UAE 10k last weekend in Central Park. It was fun to help someone reach their goal. Here’s the post-race photo.

Joe at the 10k


In June I’m registered for a number of races, ranging in distance from a 4 miler to a 100k/100 miler.

I’ve been weight training with Jehina 3/wk¬†these days. It’s difficult to want to start a new sport because I have been loving the gym. My running compliments the weight training because I’m supposed to do 5 days a week of cardio. Jehina was going to find me a smaller bikini/figure competition, hopefully about 3 months from now so I can focus all of my energy toward competing.
