The past week....
Since getting back I have managed to get in some good training. I have really been enjoying the workouts and I feel motivation coming back. I even have a bit of a desire to race and go hard, which is a welcome feeling. It really is all about finding that "happy place" with training. I have been able to get out there with Lesley, which is really nice. She is a great motivator and we always have fun training together. You always needs someone on the same page to help with the daily grind and to put things into perspective. We share very similar views on training/racing so I think we are able to help eachother excel and really find the joys in the whole process.
I have quite a bit of travel coming up as I already mentioned. The good thing is that my travel takes me to some AWESOME training grounds. Between Monterey and the Santa Cruz mountains I will get in some great work. Then at the end of August I will be in Chicago for a week to do some Skinfit networking and I will be able to log plenty of hours with Adam Zucco...a great training partner.
Overall, I feel good and I am excited to see my motivation returning. Taking a step back for me was a great thing and has brought back some fire. I can't say with certainty that I will race nationals and worlds but it is looking like I will. If I keep on the path I am on I think I will be fit physically and mentally.
Got a good weekend on tap...long ride and swim on saturday with James and Beth and it's Jessica's Bday on Sunday so we will have a fun filled day.
Have a good weekend everyone. Thanks for reading!
