relax, don't do it, when you want to, go do it

Hey everyone!

Glad to see I still have followers even though my blogging has not been regular lately. That doesn't mean I haven't been training, I just haven't really been keeping track of it. I'm trying to have "fun" for awhile because I know I will be in serious training mode soon enough.

The day I signed up for Cairns I ran to my coach freaking out like "omg what do I do now, how do I start." He said to me "Deanna just have fun now, because at some point it will not be fun." I am really embracing that phrase right now. I'm working out most days, swimming and bike mostly but I'm not tracking my workouts and I'm keeping it pretty low stress. I know that soon enough (end of August) marathon training starts and I'll be running a ton.

Yesterday I did a chill 700 meter swim with the Tinman clinic then rode alone about 30 miles. It felt great. Today I was supposed to hike, but we got rained out and started drinking Bloody Mary's instead. Now that I am sober, I think I'll run tonight.

  1. That's something I need to pick up again... Swimming. I'm planning on doing a fall bike clinic although it would probably be smarter to do a marathon clinic.... I think I'm screwed up! Oh well... So is life

    1. What clinic are you going to do?

    2. I was thinking about Try Fitness because the coach there is awesome (coach Dorian). I heard KC from Try fitness is also great as well.
      Although my speed is not to par, he was working on that with me before my schedule got to hectic. He is awesome at teaching techniques and to keep it safe.
