Over the last few weeks, months, a bit of time anyway, I’ve really been struggling with training. There has been a lot of workouts missed, the motivation to train isn’t really there and I’m not a big fan of me racing unless I’m in shape. Sure, I still like to go run, ride my bike and check out the 60-70 year old hotties at the pool when I swim, but I’m just not digging training for triathlon right now. Staying fit yes. Training…not so much.
There has to be more out there to do then triathlon. I like being fit, knowing that I can pummel most people 10-15 years younger then me, at least in endurance sports. But I think, or at least I’m thinking that I think that I’m over having triathlon as a pillar in how my life is structured. It’d be nice to go out and get plastered some night at a pub, hang out until 12 or later and not have to worry about getting up at 5:30am to beat the heat to work out. Of course I can drink a fair bit, so getting plastered at a pub could become expensive. So somewhat plastered. Easier to recover from and easier on the wallet, two things I really like.
I’ve got Wildflower coming up next weekend and I’m not really excited about going to that race. Looking forward to seeing some friends and hanging out with them, not so excited about racing.
It seems I need to drift towards a decision, continue to train and try to get faster, after all I’d still like to break 4:10 on a legit half IM course, or try to shift my focus towards some other things be it work, napping, maybe work and napping or something else.
