I started my Patriot Half Ironman training on January 6th with the base period. There has been a few hiccups but gaining momentum. The biggest issue was the pool heater just died and with cold days, the temperature dropped 10 degrees. I did have the option of going to another BSC gym with a pool but just keep making excuses of the 25 minute drive. Finally I did go, then the next day the pool heater was replaced. To get into our comfort zone, we have to get uncomfortable first. Fighting it makes it harder on yourself. As the commercial says: Just Do It.
