Change or die
Typically I have this perfect plan in my mind. One that covers my training, work, life, what have you. Dream big, sculpt the details, be happy. Good strategy, no? I push as hard as I can only to keep finding myself behind by a day, two days, a week, 3 weeks. Weaksauce.
I’m not a pro triathlete. I won’t even consider myself a decent amateur until I place AG podium at a decent race. There have been times when I train so much, I don’t even want to look at the bike. And then the times when I’m a tasmanian devil if I can’t squeeze in that session. The latter being the majority of the time. Talk about non-physiological adaptation being damn hard.. Why I put in so much time and effort into this I don’t know, except that at this point in my life, it’s all I got and something I want.
And if I want it, I’m gonna work for it and get it. My biggest challenges and most recent lessons learned are not ones of eating right or knowing how many hours to put in per week. I know what improves my performance (finally). It’s been flexibility. I’ve got to stop being rigid with my planning. Things change, get shoved around. Two bad surprises after each good one. Even when nothing moves, keep your head up, adapt, kick it with all you’ve got.
That said, I need to visit Gerry at Tower26.
