DAILY LOG 24 JUNE 2011
MUSINGS AND THOUGHTS
I had another rest day today. I haven’t given myself the luxury of 2 rest days in a row since I started this journey way back in Nov 2010 (8 months ago). Why the 2 rest days? Well, I’ve been terribly busy with my book as well as putting the final touches to my new website. That is the official excuse.
The real reason lies in the fact that I feel very tired, both physically as well as emotionally. A lot of worries regarding my training (especially my swimming) has been nagging at my thoughts. I find myself taking things too seriously. Don’t get me wrong. When I workout, I do so with a ferocious intensity and it’s serious business. The problem was that I’m beating myself to much and too easily when I don’t get the results I want. Sometimes I yearn for things to be like 6 months ago when every workout was an adventure.
So yesterday and today I decided to focus my attention to my book and website and I’ve been very productive doing it. It’s good to take a break from my triathlon training. It gives my body a real chance to heal and get stronger. It gives my mind a similar chance to think about what I need to focus on in the next 4 weeks.
And now I’m ready. I can’t wait to work out tomorrow. And I’m going to have me a real adventure.
