this is my new way of motivating myself. instead of thinking 'i dont want to' i have changed it to 'i am not willing to'. it is much harder to stay in bed when you say i am not willing to ride my bike rather than i dont want to ride my bike. when it comes down to it you do want to ride your bike - just not right then.
i am currently feeling less stress as far as the evil job goes and i think i have just about broken the camels back with training. one more week of build, one of recovery, two major build weeks and then taper time ! whoot hoot ! not to mention the five day break over easter. i am/was starting to think and feel that my life had become one dimensional. i am looking forward to getting some balance back and having the time and focus to really resolve the work problem and do something other than swim/bike/run.
silke (arch nemesis) is coming out to ride with me on sunday and i am really looking forward to having a training buddy. in the meantime if you are really wondering just how i have been going then the pic below sums it up.
