It’s a Lifestyle

My mom thinks I am pretty crazy for my daily training regimen. I always tell her “it’s a lifestyle.” It has become a joke between the two of us. As I take my 2 weeks off, it is now more than ever that I realize how much it is a part of my daily routine. I have come home from work at 2:45 every day with nothing to do. It has been weird, almost as if I am doing something wrong.

Over the past two weeks I have managed to meet up with friends for dinner and have eaten Thai, Mexican/Spanish (more than once), and Lebanese food. I’ve been to numerous happy hours, brunches, did a Halloween bar crawl, attended a wedding, and went on an easy bike ride on the C & O Canal with Marc.   I’ve indulged a bit more than I usually do. I’ve reorganized my closet, updated my blog a few times, done some wedding planning, and cooked an awesome dinner in my crock-pot (which I have never used).

I realized that I LOVE filling my time with triathlon training, and without it I am lost and without direction. Being the Type A person I am, I always need something to do and a new goal to reach; I just can’t sit still!!  As fun as it is eating out multiple times a week and having more than one beer or glass of wine, I couldn’t maintain that lifestyle, I would be overweight and poor! I would rather fill my time with training to reach my triathlon goals. I am SO excited to get back to what I am used to, and can’t wait to train and work hard this season. The break was very necessary, and I am ready to return to the lifestyle that feels normal to me!
