Okay. I did it! I made a decision on my next race. 🙂 This year is all about being spontaneous, so thank goodness there are a few races close to me that don’t sell out right away!
I have decided to do St. George 70.3! 🙂
Training has been going really well! I feel like I’m really finding my love of cycling again, as my confidence builds back up. It really is one of those things where, the more you ride, the more confident you get, and therefore the better you get. Somedays I wish I could just quit my day job and just train. 😛 There is something that I just love about training and setting goals, and seeing my body change, and my mind change, and all that comes with this sport. Maybe someday I will get a chance to do that. 🙂
I’ve gone back and forth about hiring a coach. I would LOVE a coach, but honestly, I only want a coach for 6 weeks. haha. I just want someone to kick my ass and push me outside my comfort zone for the next 6 weeks, but there aren’t too many coaches that are going to sign on to that. So, I might just have to see what I can make myself do. I mean this year after all is about feeling free for me. I want to enjoy triathlon. I want to feel free to travel. To explore. Adventure. All while also trying to be the best “me” I can be.
What I have learned in 6yrs of being in this sport is that this is a lifestyle. It’s not the end. I will probably be in this sport for the rest of my life, that’s how much I love it, and am addicted to it. But, I also love traveling, hiking, exploring, adventuring, and nurturing all of my other interests in this life. I love making time for friends and family. At the end of the day, I have to be ME. So, what does that mean? Maintaining balance, but giving it all I’ve got every workout. That doesn’t mean every workout is an all out effort, I just mean committing to the workout, whatever it is. Whether a recovery run, or a hard swim set, or a long bike ride. Whatever it is. I am committed to it, in that moment. We’ll see what kind of race I can put together for St. George. 6 weeks til go time!!!
Do you know what’s crazy about training? It makes the days/months/years fly by! I mean in 6 weeks, it will be May! Nearly half way through 2015. What goals did you set at the beginning of 2015? Are you taking steps to achieve them? If not, maybe your goals have changed? Maybe reassess.
At the end of the day…LOVE…LAUGH…LIVE 🙂
