Boy, it’s been a while, again… Not for lack of things to write about. On the contrary, things I’ve wanted to say have been pouncing on me several times a day right along, I’ve just been busy with other things – getting my business (Fit Coach Linda) up and running, teaching fitness classes, studying for an additional certification, and since the start of the year also doing strength training with an awesome personal trainer (Kyle Boggeman, of San Diego Strength and Conditioning).
Of course I have been training at the dojo (Aikido of San Diego, with Dave Goldberg Sensei) almost daily, as usual, helping in the children’s programs, and playing with friends during open mat sessions. I’ve even been leading a few classes here and there, which has been a lot of fun.
But the thing I’m most excited about this morning is that I’m leaving for camp in just a couple of days! The Aiki Summer Retreat, in Quincy, CA, in the Sierra Mountains of Northern California. This will be my 3rd time going to the Retreat (once at Menlo, twice at this location), and I’m really looking forward to hanging out with friends I haven’t seen in ages, and training with some great instructors. And on the way there and back I get to visit my inlaws, who are delightful people, and whom I haven’t seen in since the last time, 2 years ago.
As for writing, once again I am recommitting to posting more regularly – both here and on my blog at Fit Coach Linda. I’ve been doing tons of writing in my head every day (ha!), and a lot for upcoming books or blog posts, just not polishing it and getting it out there.
Meanwhile, off to teach a senior fitness class this morning, pick up a few things for my adventure on the way home, do some work this afternoon, and then to the gym and the dojo. Woohoo!
