I have bad news. It’s Monday.
But I also have good news. I get to leave for Florida on Friday!
Bad news: I’m still in off-season. I emailed my coach this morning to ask when my off-season is over. I am not an off-season person. Yes, I understand that they are important for many reasons, but I just lose all motivation. Mentally, it’s important for me to have a well-defined end goal. For example, 70.3 NOLA. This is definitely something to work on in the future, but I am ready to end my off-season.
Good news: My coach likes to indulge my inner crazy cakes and promised to add a countdown to the end of off-season to my Training Peaks workouts. Woot!
Good news: I’m feeling like a person again, even though I still have a bit of a cough and some minor congestion. That means I get to return to training this week! Thank goodness because I’m getting a bit cabin fever-ish with all the tea and couch sitting. I do not do inactivity well.
Good news: I pretty much have the most adorable niece in the entire world. She’s also kind of a badass and “accidentally” gave her very annoying cousin a bloody nose during her 3rd birthday party. He was all up in her grill during present opening and apparently she hit her limit. Don’t let all that pink and glitter fool you, she’s apparently got some hulk super strength going on.
Interesting fact: A year ago yesterday, I got this as an early Christmas present.
And now it’s getting close to the wedding! We’re down to 82 days and there isn’t a whole lot left to do. And God bless countdown apps!
