Next Year....

Sunday, December 09, 2012

You know your season is going to be a challenge when you're saying, "Wait til next year" during the first race. That's how it's gone this year. I was thankfully late to the first race of the OVCX season, getting there just as my race took off. I say thankfully because given what happened next--a week in the hospital with a MRSA infection that had been building for a bit--racing that day could have made things worse (according to the docs). I've not recovered the mental attitude that I need. I've raced a couple times in a series out of Columbus, but I've not been able to get the "go train" mindset that I had leading into September. Weight's gone north, attitude has gone south, and people have been hiding from me.

Not all sucks, though. There's been changes in nutrition. Activity level is starting to increase. My mind is starting to try to organize things. I've found a half marathon in March to start training for. The blob is starting to move. Momentum. Taking me into next year....

    Sometimes you just need a break. I know for me that I get all involved in something for a year or so and then get bored and move on. Take your time getting back and build your endurance and strength. You will find your momentum and motivation along the way.

    THE BLOB was unstoppable. That's you next year, unstoppable Blob. Eddie Merckx was called "the cannibal" and all racers feared him. Just think, being chased by the "Unstoppable Blob"... strikes fear in my heart....

    Thank goodness next year is right around the corner. Sounds you've kicked the MRSA infection and are back on track. Just keep that momentum going.
