Today I am overwhelmed by a feeling of pure angst...these lazy bones have been kept in captivity too long and I am itching for a fight! A fight to the finish, that is. I've been training, but more in a maintenance-happy zone-I'm a healthy person kind of way. And I am bored, frustrated, and getting pretty cranky about it.
It's hard to stay super-fit when you're surrounded by other obligations clamoring for attention. But now that my work travel, vacation, and other distractions are behind me I can turn my focus back to refining my level of fitness to one that I can have a little more respect for.
So. Solutions? Well, it just so happens I have several lined up:
Immediately through August: kick training back into high gear for 1/2 marathon, triathlon, and tri-fit. That means more interval running, Plyometric Wednesdays, and swimming workouts.
September: planning another sprint triathlon with my brother, sister, brother in a law, and husband unless they wimp out on me.
October: half marathon with my sister (and anyone else I can conjure up).
November: Tri-Fit Ultimate Fitness Challenge and local Turkey Trot 10k
How about you? What are you doing in the next few months to get yourself into tip-top shape? I'll see you at the starting line!
