What if I do not finish the challenge that I have put before me? I have been training as best as I can without compromising my relationships, work and down time. I miss at least a workout a week and still have not discovered the LOVE of running.
Maybe if I change my goal; I’m going to attempt the challenge half, but I am training to be a healthier 40 year old. I have been making lifestyle choices to bring me closer to this goal, and when I turn 40, I can look back and see that I have been doing my best to honour the body that I have been given.
Have you ever listens to music and start to think about how you heard in the fist place? Especially if if is obscure… ? Sigur Ros, introduced 10 years ago by a short term friend- turned long distance acquaintance and listening to it now 10 years later brings back fondness of what my 20’s. how much has changed? I drink less, sleep more, I have more questions about my future than answers ( 20 year olds have all the answers) however I feel that I am learning more about myself now than ever before.
Training is hard, and on race day the success my training will shine through with a result of a hard day, I have been a bit lazy the passed few weeks workouts, and I know it will effect my overall day.
However I am not in it for just this day, I’m in it for the rest of my life. Triathlon is part of the bigger picture of health. As I continue to make a commitment to be a healthy adult (body and mind) I know that I will be hit with a dip. That part of the journey were there is a wall in front of me that if I want to be a super star I have to work through it, if that is what I want.
At 5:23 am on Sunday morning as I get ready for race number 2 of this journey I know that I will have fun, and I think that is all that matters!
