The new year has started and I am trying to beat my old demons that say sitting down relaxing would be more fun than getting on the trainer in the garage or starting that streak. The old cliche that Triathlon is 70-80% mental is not a lie. I let my ADHD get the best of me too often when it comes to training and I only focus on the end result, the race. In 2014 I hope I can fix this problem and make myself a better person, better athlete and better family member.
Today we started with an easy HR workout in Z1 for 30 min, Z2 for 20 min and Z1 for 10 min. Easy as can be, but I broke very good sweat. It felt so good that I have kicked myself out of my head and am starting that streak I always say I am going to start. Who knows how long it will last, but 1 mile per day for as long as I can maintain it is my goal. I need to embrace my running side more than I have in the past.
