This section of my website used to be dedicated to triathlon training, personal race results and certification reviews, like Turbo Kick. I am expanding it to include more generic health & fitness topics. Also, I talk a lot about "D" -- he's my husband (Dave Liu)!

Starting Anew!

Oh. My. Gawd. It's been an ENTIRE YEAR since I last wrote about anything health and fitness related, mostly because I haven't had anything to write about. I've stopped training (I haven't participated in an event in months) and the only thing I was doing on any sort of regular basis was teach a weekly cardio kickboxing class at the Sequoia YMCA in Redwood City... and I recently had to give that up as well. I love teaching, but given the hours I'm working, I wasn't putting enough time and effort to prepare for class, and it just wasn't fair to the participants. I still sub though, and I try to make it to other classes so I can still get some regular exercise. I recently went to a Body Pump class at the Palo Alto Y but I'm not a fan of the music in the current release.

D has been working his tail off as well (much longer hours), so he too has fallen off the wagon with respect to training. He still gets in the occasional run or workout, but not consistently.

Both of us are currently traveling on business, and I was complaining to him over instant messaging (how sad is that? We're so busy we don't even have time to talk on the phone) about my physical well being and I told him that we should participate in the Dublin's 2006 Shamrock 5K Fun Run & Walk and he has agreed to do it with me. I'd like to say that I will be running, especially since it's such a short distance, but given my sorry condition, I have a feeling there will be a lot of walking involved!
