I know it's only December, but the thought of signing up for a race, having a daily training schedule with 2 disciplines is so far off my internal radar it's as if I have never done it before.
Quite bizarre considering how anguished and impatient I would be during any one particular dreadful injury that occurred. I swear, I created so much needless stress on myself I probably prolonged my healing far too concerned about all the fitness I was losing while watching my planned season shatter into pieces.
I've lost so much ground in the 3 years not being able to train consistently, It's fair to say I probably won't ever match the times I did that year of 2007. I'll consider it the peak of my short lived amateur age group go at it. 2007 was a fantastic year for me after many yearly cycles of training, exposure to different distances, and just the cumulative build up one acquires honing a skill. Of course at the time, I only wanted to get faster and NEVER was completely satisfied with what I accomplished. Funny how 3 years can put that all in perspective.
ultimately very very disappointing.
I've suddenly found myself completely disengaged with the notion of training and racing triathlon this coming year and with that I had to make the very difficult decision to leave Team Trakkers and the most awesome supportive sponsors that make that team what it is. Even more importantly, Charlie Patten, Carole Sharpless, and Michael Lovato are the backbone of this team and clearly without them, it would be nothing. I will miss being part of this great organization and I am very grateful I was part of it since it's inception.This will REALLY sink in come March when the team is gearing up for a solid season of racing, sponsors are in place, team kits are dispersed and I'm not part of it. eeeeks..... I guess I will cross that bridge when I come to it but I know it will be hard pill to swallow.
So what do I have in store? Well you can be certain I'm not going to become a bon bon eating (pink) couch sloth, that is for sure. I'm still deciding, so you'll just have tune in regularly to:
