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.

I couldn't have written it better myself!! You have a great blog!! Call me a sister slacker! But isn't it great that we do anything at all! :)

Excellent follow up to Bolder's post. God knows I don't read all these blogs to say, I'm doing more than her or less them him, who really cares. I read them to get inspiration, tips, and to know there are others out there struggling just like me. Nancy, your blog has helped more than you know. Please don't change a thing!!!

mipper said...

amen! can i join the club. this post is so me in so many ways, you have no idea. i agree with Flo, your blog has ben a wealth of info to me. don't change a thing darling! one step at a time is all it takes. you go girl!

Bolder said...

thanks for the shout out Nancy... i do get mucho inspiration from your blog, just for the reasons you described...

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.

maybe i'm one of the few non-triathlete readers of this blog...i'm just some schmo who'd working it to get into the best shape that i can...and from this mountain view, you, my friend, are no slacker...

Holly said...

Nancy, I wouldn't even have a blog if it wasn't for you ... You just keep doing what you do. ANybody who feels the need to "be better" probably should take some time off from training and go searching for some "self esteme" because they have lost it...

YOU ROCK Nancy and I am happy to be a fellow Tater!

Steven said...

Just keep moving forward, Nancy. You are doing a wonderful job of balancing what is important to you and you just need to keep that focus. Every stroke you swim, every pedal you push, and every step you run are taking you closer to becoming an Ironman and I don't doubt for a second that you can get it done in fine fashion!

I agree with them all Nancy. Having met you in Tampa, I have seen up close and personal what an inspiration you are.

2006 will be an awesome year for you and I look forward to reading more & more.

Mica said...

You a slacker? No way. Nancy, I have no freakin' idea how you do any training at all while raising two little ones. I know that I couldn't do it!

Elle said...

Fantastic post...and the fact that you can complete 75% of your target is an amazing accomplishment as far as I'm concerned. Lady you rock...

GatorJamie said...

Slacker, my eye. You do all of this AND care for toddlers! I'm lucky to get my dogs fed.

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...

jeanne said...

What they said. No way are you a slacker! And every single thing you said applies to me too. Great post, you're an inspiration to so many of us.
