I rode my bike to and from work again yesterday. It's a good way to force me out of my comfort zone and spent some low key time in the saddle. It doesn't replace other work I should be doing on the bike, but it's a good addition to my life.
This whole week has been low-key exercise-wise. I've been excessively exhausted, and haven't been sleeping well. Since it's both a post-race (duathlon) week and a pre-race (10k mud run tomorrow) week I haven't had much motivation to push myself. That's probably for the best.
After tomorrow mud run I have a clear race calendar until the middle of August. I have a laundry list of goals for this fall, most of which conflict. And while I'd like to think I can simultaneously train for 4 different types of goals, it's not going to work out. Mostly, I am excited to be in a position when I want to pursue goals, so I want to work on all of the, RIGHT NOW, while I'm excited about it. I'm champing at the bit to improve all of my athletic skill sets to the point where I'll end up Jack-Of-All-Master-Of-None-ing the shit out of myself if I don't rein in it.
So, there's that. Right now my summer is laid out in front of me, brimming with possibility and potential. I have no idea what my limits are when it comes to training and goals. It will be interesting to explore those limits. And frustrating, I'm sure. I don't deal well with not being good at something. It's come easy enough thus far.
It's going to be an interesting summer.
