My first fartlek

14 07 2011

Yesterday the wife made me go for a fartlek session – wasn’t sure I was ready for such stress on the body while recovering from injury.

But in the end I managed to run quite fast during our 200m sprints, I was happy to hold a good sprinting pace throughout the 200m and not flag before the end.  The knees and foot held up, although the hammies and achilles were sore enough during the slow warm down lap.  So much sprinting and the wife’s company meant not much time for thinking, but the following occured:

This Blog will serve as a means of sharing what I already have and do and hopefully encouraging others to share too.

Is launching a blog during a major EFL conference a good thing or a bad thing?  Am I competing for attention or will it be easier to get the blog out there?

#eltchat this afternoon was excellent – Promoting Critical Thinking in the classroom, I’m glad I proposed the topic, that it won and that I made sure I could attend.  You definitely need to prepare yourself to have something worth saying to say.  I definitely should become a regular for a while, until I more connected.  And should I publish it here in Printing Press?

I need to organise my life so I can go to LABCI next year – why aren’t I there now? Ignorance? Laziness? Lack of contacts?

I need to improve my talk ‘Professionally Developing’ for the ABS conference in August here in Buenos Aires – can’t rely just on how I did it last year in Veracruz and Cuernavaca, Mexico.   Include more concrete examples, links, suggestions, not just the idea itself.
