I don't have too much to talk about tonight but a few things are on my mind.
Thanks to some encouraging words from fellow bloggers regarding my last post, I have a few ideas that I want to try. I am thinking that somehow I can start small training groups for this new Triathlon in my town. I could hold small group runs, rides or swims. In theory, that sounds easy enough. But do I have the guts to do it? I am not qualified or certified to do any such thing. I am just an athlete who does triathlons now. I used to just swim. I used to just run. I have taught swimming lessons and even coached but I have no credentials. What makes it ok for me to do this? I imagine I could somehow find a few days/week to make this happen. I have no idea where to start or if this is even reasonable to think possible. However, it may be step 1 for me. I would love to turn this new passion of mine into a career somehow and follow my dream. I do feel that my calling is in the area of fitness/ wellness. It's what makes me tick.
I have a hard run in the morning. It's the same 10x 2 min uphill that I did after a 2 hr ride last week. I am anxious to try this run without dead legs. I wonder if I'll go further and feel better or if I'll miss the bike warm-up. I do always seem to run faster off the bike than cold. Does this happen to anyone else?
I'm tired. I have been having this period of time each day during which I just can't keep my eyes open. From 2-4p.m. I am a zombie. I know waking up at 4:30-4:45 is early, but I've been doing it for a while. I really want to eliminate this tired part of my day. It makes me snack more than I should and crave coffee. And lately, everyone seems to be telling me to give up coffee.
On that note, I'm off to bed.
Watch out for April Fools everyone!! And please, for us Northerners stuck in a snowy winter rut, THINK SPRING!!!
