|Enjoying some quality time together.|
I'm wondering how I'm going to feel getting back into the swing of things. There are days that I've asked myself lately, how did I find the time to do all that swimbikerun?? And what is it going to be like to not each chocolate at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacktime? You know, the important questions in life. It's not that I'm worried about being slow (I already know I'm going to be slow and that swimming is going to su-uuck those first few times). It's just that I've not missed training the way I figured I would miss it - the way I've missed it in the past. But then I remind myself that taking a big break like this, getting soft and lazy, it could actually mean good things for 2013. I've given my body and mind a long break, and that will hopefully both stave off early burnout in 2013 AND help me get faster and stronger. I also remind myself of my "normal" 10 months out of the year - a more disciplined lifestyle, Saturdays and Sundays filled with lots of miles on the bike and in the run shoes, and early morning visits to the pool. And every year, I LOVE ALL OF IT and I remember always thinking, I can't imagine NOT spending my days doing the sports I love.
SO... Cheers to 2013!
