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??
- I like the camaraderie of classes.
- I like the social atmosphere.
- I like to see/chat/get motivated by the various coaches.
- I have a new strategy for Sat morning classes - no 2 classes in the same spot.
- 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 Just having second thoughts on the new carpet (may have been replaced by shopping in Las Vegas - but I got the coolest leggings and only paid $1.35 for GU gels, snagged a whole box of Salted Caramel).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.
