I realized that I haven't posted since last Monday, and this post is a bit contrived for the sake of posting. I'm just quietly doing my homework in preparation for IM CDA. I have both a plan and a philosophy for the remaining four weeks until the big day. I have a training skeleton that I will follow, but at the same time, will be flexible with proper recovery taking precedence. I am following Macca's tip to pick the one workout you need to nail for the day, and the rest of the workouts for the day are amenable depending on recovery. I am also working on rebuilding my confidence. Last summer, before racing the full Vineman, I had no doubt about my ability to go under 10 hours, I believed 100% that I could do it. My confidence is a bit shaky this time around. There is no way I'll break 10 hours if I don't BELIEVE I can do it. The first step in rebuilding my confidence is to start nailing my key workouts. The more key workouts I nail, the more I deposit into the confidence bank. I made some good deposits this past weekend, and this coming weekend will give me lots more opportunities to make deposits, about 20 hours of swim, bike, run deposits. When I think of all the work I have to do this weekend, I'm reminded of the the times that I've been able to sit quietly at the SFMOMA enjoying my favorite piece of artwork. The picture does not do this Rothko justice, put it on your bucket list to sit in front of this painting one day.
I'm basically interested in all things funny, health and triathlon related, and sustainable living. This blog used to accompany a website I built to raise awareness about cancer as well as raise money for different causes.
