Ok.. there I said it.. I admit it.. I'm an addict...
I'm addicted to the London 2012 Olympics!!
What is the first thing I do when I go downstairs after putting the dogs out at 06:00?? Hmm.. Turn on the BBC Breakfast show and use it as background to get caught up on what will be happening in all the venues for the day.
I want to know what has happened overnight while I was sleeping!!!
I leave the TV on so long that it goes into sleep mode and I have to restart it to keep watching.
I plan my run so that I can be back in time to watch people like the Brownlee Brothers in the Triathlon! Make sure the dog walk fits in between the cycling kerin races so I see Team GB win! Leave the TV on while I am doing office work so I can run down stairs when the rowers are nearing the finish line.!!
I have watched sports that I didn't think I would find interesting! Judo, water polo, badminton, field hockey, and sports that I know a little about I have learned the ins and outs of the competition. I realized that I have done many of the sports/events growing up that are included in the Olympics.
I am staying up late to see how the day concludes. I am eagerly switching from one BBC channel to another to see what event is being shown in its entirety without commentary! I schedule my day around the most important events so I don't miss them. I study the boxing stance of the competitors, I watch the running style of the sprinters, I notice the rowing form of the double skullers!!
Like I said in the beginning of this blog.. I'm addicted! My one concern is what am I going to do when the closing ceremonies bring this amazing and wonderful London games to an end????!!! Will I suffer withdrawal?? What will I do to replace the void from all the athletic stimulus??
Ponder all this I will...and carry it forward into my own personal goals!
