The last few years of my life have been a whirlwind of starting running/triathlons, meeting super fun supportive people I love fiercely and achieving big things. Ever since IM Texas, I’ve tried to back off a little (somewhat successfully, somewhat unsuccessfully.) It’s now time to put that focus back on the epic achievement part of my life.
Basically, shit’s about to get real up in here.
What does that mean you ask? It means I start to take my workouts more seriously again. I keep my head down and keep focus on nailing my workouts, getting enough sleep and eating better than I did the last training thing. Cause I have big plans. BIG, huge plans.
In my last IM training cycle it was all about being pretty terrified of the distance. It’s a big, long, scary distance. But it also epically fun. I still remember being on the bike course and wanting to scream “I’M ACTUALLY HERE, THIS IS MY IRONMAN!!!!” but I kept that inside because people already though I was weird being loaded up on fluids (jokes on them because I finished the bike smart and passed all of them on the run, go ahead buddy, get up out of your seat for that small roller, burning matches y’all)
But I’m excited, and I haven’t been excited in several months.
This time I want to focus on the small things. Last time it was about the big scary things. And while those are still important, the focus on the small things is what is going to make the difference in my goals. So, get ready to come along for the ride, because it’s on.
