It’s hard to come out of hibernation. Each swim, bike, and run feels like I’m shaking rust off. It feels good, but why is it so much harder to get back into shape!? No one’s fault but my own…
1. Cover my Training Peaks schedule in green. The past few weeks have been hit or miss. I’ve had some really great workouts, but I’ve also missed about half of my scheduled workouts. Not great. Put a crappy effort in, you get a crappy result.
2. Clean up my diet. I was doing well for quite a while, but the stress and uncertainty of the last month or so has taken its toll. That stops today. I am signed up for a month long group nutritional course called Swim Bike Fuel. I’m really hoping that the daily assignments and reflections really help me get to a better place with my relationship with food. I really want to see my full potential with racing and I’m tired of having my weight holding me back. I’m ready to deal with this and hopefully put it behind me. Here’s hoping.
3. Blog at least twice a week. This is a great space that helps keep me accountable. When I fall away from blogging, it generally correlates with falling away from training. I promise to try and be interesting, but some days may just be a quick training update with adorable dog pictures. Still a win.
What are your September goals?
