Hello blog. Remember me?
I didn't think so.
Ugghhhh where to start...... ..... .....
Do I close this down?
Do I pick up where I left off?
Do I just not bother at all?
I just don't know.
So much to say that I can't be bothered to even start to try to quantify where I'm at now.
Why am I even here? What compels me to write a blog post after all this time...?
Maybe it's time to get back into it. I'm so far from where I once was, it feels like I'm back to square one. A huge mountain before me, too tall to contemplate. So I won't... I'll just start.
Starting with this post. Starting with baby steps. One workout at a time. One win at a time. Focus on the task at hand and not the mountain before me. Need to get back into shape. Need to get back on track and find a balance.
Life is good. Work is good. Moved to the west coast, lots of change. Put all the weight back on in the process. My how I have fallen pretty far off the top of the mountain. I don't do anything half-hazard, so when I burn out I burn out to the extreme!
Time to be the has-been athlete once again. There's an athlete inside of this phat body wanting to get out, I just can't contain it anymore. Need to release the beast. Endure the grind once again back to fitness. Maybe beyond... but that's too far away right now. Just focus, on the now.
Cycling to the office. Running regularly. Show up and suffer to club rides and do my best to keep up.
Ohhh the grind. Back to the grind. It's time.
Entered the Kona Lottery too while I'm at it. Let us hope I don't win.
This is probably the single most important question you will have to answer again and again about long distance triathlon: Why do you want to do it? Why do you want to hurt yourself like this? Why? And the simple fact is that only you know the answer. And you do have an answer. Whatever that answer is, that is your motivation.
