Well, not much really.
I have been working a lot, eating too much, and not really training. I am just not into it right now, and the truth is, I don’t see the sense in forcing it when what I really want to do is hike, raft and play with Porter right now. I feel like forcing it is like asking for burnout, and I want to be ready for IMMT, be looking forward to training for it, not dreading it.
So I am stepping back.
When it comes time to really start to do some work, put the nose to the grindstone – I will do it. Right now, I need to be on the river, hiking up mountains, going for long dog walks, and really just doing whatever I want. I know when I need to re-charge, and this is how I do it. I know all about how I could totally capitalize on my current fitness and stuff.
I had signed up for Pumpkinman Half Ironman in September, I think I have ridden maybe 40 miles since the Ironman, run about 8, and swam maybe 2. So I decided that I am not going to do that race this year. I could totally do it and finish, which would be fine. But if it turns out to be a fabulous weekend what I really I want to do is either be on the river or going for a hike.
Anyway, that is where I am at right now! I am signing off for today, we are going to get lots of rain and wind from Irene.
OH! Here are a few Porter photos, he has been growing so fast!
