After my private 70.3 last Sunday I vowed to take a whole week off. It was great at the beginning of the week, but by the weekend, I was ready to get back at it. We had absolutely perfect weather this week and weekend and I decided to stick with my plan anyway. It was tough, but I'm glad I did since it gave me an even bigger urge to get back to working out. For fun, I looked back through my logs for the last two years and this was the third week in two years that I had zero exercise. The other two were the guys fishing trip the last two years.
I haven't decided exactly what I'm doing next year, but I have decided I would continue with triathlons. The swimming is still scary and the pain is uncomfortable, but the challenge is invigorating. If I get accepted to the Rev3 tri team, I'll do a couple of their races. The chances of me being accepting are slim, but might as well try. You can apply here.
One problem with working out a lot is that I don't have energy to do chores and other things. So I got a few chores done this weekend and it felt pretty good. I also got some cooking in though I forgot to take pictures.
Oh yeah, wear your helmet, it's dangerous out there.
