Back in the Saddle

Whoa, there partner! This here is one hitching post I have to mosey back to. You could have posted a reward and gone empty-handed looking for me--going with the western theme, my horse was out to pasture (or is that a cow?). Nah, it's really this silly western theme that needs to be put out to pasture.

You know how you have those days--or weeks or months--where you can't drag yourself to the gym or through a workout to save your life? Well, take that scenario and apply it to me and writing. That blog block that I faced over the summer hit me again in the past few weeks, and as much as I tried to write, the words weren't coming. I rarely have the lack of workout motivation unless I have to tackle a long marathon-training run and usually end up at the gym in hopes of firing up the energy, motivation and inspiration to work on the other projects on the schedule. That run or ride works my leg muscles to fatigue while firing up the mind muscles. Except this time. Halloween hit and it's like the ghosts scared my writing muscles away.

Whatever the case, I'm back to the grind and back to Fit-Ink, determined to force words out of my fingers. I figured if I can push through tiring miles, combat the pain from tough uphill climbs or finishing a workout even when I feel sick, I can blast through the block. Plus if I let my writing go the way of so many fitness goals we have at the start of each year, Fit-Ink would be no better than those abandoned machines and less-crowded classes that fill each New Year. Scroll back in the next few days as I finish the posts I started after Halloween but couldn't publish. Photo grabbed from eric.surfdude at flickr. Posted by Kate


  1. You have a great sports blog. This is my first visit but I'm impressed. I have two sports blogs myself and I'd like to exchange links with you to spread some traffic around. Let me know if this is cool.


  2. I ocassionally get in these moods too. :)

  3. Hi Jason!

    Thanks so much for finding us and reading. I'd love to exchange links with you...especially now that I'm finally getting caught up around here. :)


  4. Hi Trainerpack--

    Phew, glad I'm not the only one. I didn't mean to be gone for as long as I have...either the writing was getting stuck after I'd start or I feel like I have no time juggling some projects and still trying to get workouts in. Argh, there are the excuses again.
