What’s Up

Since I have been injured and exhausted from work and half Ironman training, I decided this year no triathlons. I need to take my time to come back stronger and faster. As triathletes, we like to push ourselves to be the best we can be but at what cost. To do that we need to take step back and just enjoy what we do in all 3 sports. But when we are in that regimen training program we start to lose the love the sport. Taking a year off can be good to reset the body but also the mind and spirit.

Today, I swam less than mile and run 2.5 miles. Best part, I enjoy it because I was not stressed to perform. I am actually enjoying doing short workouts with the summer heat. Sign up for a couple short local road races for fun. In September, I will reassess and maybe do 15 mile trail race or half marathon. Just enjoy what you do!😎
