So I've been a bit m.i.a! I swear I've started about 5 blog entries, but haven't finished any of them. I've been enjoying the off season, while attending to...life beyond ironman. There's been more sleeping in, more time with friends, and more time to send my mental energy to the various things that are partially (or fully) neglected during the tri-season. The little running I have done, has centered around enjoying my surroundings instead of caring about my pace. Sunset runs in the crisp "winter" air- breathtaking!
Every day is about doing what I want in that moment. Suddenly working out doesn't seem like training at all, and in turn I've enjoyed quite a mental break.
I finally caved and gave mountain biking a try. Uphill, fun. Downhill, not so muchhhhhhhhhh
