2 Weeks In...

Back in the saddle, in the pool and on the road to running....
I love the fall in triathlon world.  You get back to training after a bit (or a lot) of time off and feel rejuvenated and ready to build again.  It's like returning to school after summer vacation - sharing stories of triumph and challenges faced in the months past.

Tri club kicked off with "The 7 Deadly Sins" potluck at Faizel & Karina's beautiful home to welcome us back and meet new members in Sept. Thanks for hosting a great get together!!

Next step - showing up for the classes I signed up for. Why do I not learn from previous years - avoid burnout and act sensibly??
  1. I like the camaraderie of classes.  
  2. I like the social atmosphere.
  3. I like to see/chat/get motivated by the various coaches.
  4. I have a new strategy for Sat morning classes - no 2 classes in the same spot.
  5. I think I just like making lists....

No definitive plans for 2014 since my original plan of 3 months of cycling in India has been thwarted by my employer - why do they talk about life balance, but are unable to follow-through and support it? Blah, blah, blah...

On a positive note - had my performance appraisal at work and it went well. Still gainfully employed. Just having second thoughts on the new carpet (may have been replaced by shopping in Las Vegas - but I got the coolest leggings and only paid $1.35 for GU gels, snagged a whole box of Salted Caramel).

Stay focused - happy training.

Ciao, Cindy
