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.
