I agree with liv2ride...sometimes we get caught up in the training/goals & forget to have fun & enjoy the experience. The fact that your doing 70.3 is impressive!! And because it's your first...just go out with a 'in it to finish it' goal. Set goals for your next one. I know, it's easier said than done! 2337 days ago
I can totally relate but I am glad that you were able to find balance in the long run, enjoying time with your loved ones is priceless! You are right too, doing a 70.3 in itself is impressive, not many can hack it so why have time constraints on your goal - I know easier said than done ;). I am currently reading this book about Chrissie Wellington which is mighty inspiring because she is an amazing Iron(wo)man but it's funny because I cannot help thinking every time...but she's NOT a mom or wife or etc...which may seem like excuses but the reality is that we may just not have time to sacrifice to put in those amounts of hours.
I look forward to reading your new training plan. Even looking at your adjusted schedule, you are STILL putting in lots of training! 2337 days ago
I think sometimes we get so caught up in training and goals that we forget to have fun and enjoy the ride. I know I'm guilty of turning everything into a contest. I've tried really hard this year to just enjoy what I'm doing whether it's yoga, strength training, cycling or just walking. I want to be at peace with myself and where I am mentally and physically. 2338 days ago
