I, like a lot of people had grand plans for 2018 starting on Jan 1. EAT CLEAN! TRAIN DIRTY! CLEAN HOUSE MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY! NEW YEAR NEW ME!
yeahhhhhh….how’s that working out? turns out, not so well.
Here it is March 1st and I’m way below my own expectations as to how I thought this year would start. What follows is a thought by thought breakdown of everything I’ve failed at this year.
Who wants to read all of that? And no thanks, I have zero plans of reliving and beating myself up. ugh. Time for
another a new start. I am just gonna try to let that sh*t go.
I’ve spent the last few weeks feeling disappointed in myself and others. and it has done me zero good. Instead of being Uncle Fester hanging out with his friend Petty Officer Tom Petty, I’m going to really try to just acknowledge the situation and then move on.
I can start over any day I want. And that day is today. And if I stumble. Whelp, than the next day is a new start.
I’ve got my first race in MONTHS coming up. I’m so excited. and I’m also not close to ready for a variety of
But who cares?! I have nobody to compete against except for myself. I’m going to go into this race remembering why I love the sport of Triathlon so much. It’ll be a great weekend of fun with friend for Las Olas on 3/11 and I cannot wait!
I’ve got a bunch of races coming up this year that I’m pretty pumped about. I just need to get the heck out of my head and just get out there. When I’m overwhelmed, I tend to just stop. You’ve heard of Fight or Flight? well, I just STOP. It’s not at all productive.
Let’s see if this old dog can learn some new tricks.
Happy March 1st everybody!
Happy March Kathy!!
Triathlon is a process and a journey. ONWARD!! New year, new events! We all struggle. Just when I thought I had it all goin’ on with my new 2018 training schedule I jacked my shoulder up. Thought I tore my rotator cuff but thankfully didn’t. Just now back in the pool after 2 mo of just lower body work. To say I’m swim deconditioned is an understatement. Back to the basic drills. Back to feeling like a beginner. Back to realizing as an “adult-onset triathlete” I have a lot to learn and a lot of patience to cultivate. Oh – & did I mention I’m mighty tired of feeling like I’m a 100 years old after some of those workouts?! U r a ROCK STAR & are willing to do what many aren’t. So keep going girl – YOU GOT THIS!!!!
love your comments. thank you! and WE got this 🙂
