I'm a slacker
I like Bolder's post today. Just to echo what he said:
I'm a slacker. I'm fundamentally lazy. I don't blog to brag. One of the biggest reasons that I blog nearly every day is to prod myself to get in some kind of daily workout. As anyone who checks my right sidebar knows, I usually get done only about 50-75% of the workouts that I have planned.
- If you think you train harder than me, you're certainly correct.
- If you think you're more serious and dedicated and motivated than me about triathlon - BINGO! You're right on target.
- If you think you walk the walk while I only talk the talk -- again, you're right on the money.
- Most especially, if you think you're leaner and more fit and faster than I am - I can guarantee that you most certainly are.
It's still amazing to me when I do anything at all. There have been months and years in my life where I did nothing physical whatsoever.
Sometimes I have to force myself not think too much past today's workout. It's too overwhelming to me to think of the whole year of workouts ahead of me. I get tired just thinking about it.
I'm just trying to get to the next mile marker in the race. That's all. That's ahead of where I am right now. As long as I keep moving in the proper direction, I'll get there eventually.
somewhat like mipper, i can't fathom with your responsibilities as a mom, and then as a fellow athlete fathom the time you have to train...
yet, you keep setting goals (big goals!), and achieving them, despite all the challenges.
keep makin' it happen and inspirin' us!
take care, bold.
YOU ROCK Nancy and I am happy to be a fellow Tater!
2006 will be an awesome year for you and I look forward to reading more & more.
The post brought a smile to my face as I sit (key word: "sit") here and dread today's strength session and speed work. One exercise at the time, one set at the time...
