What a difference a day makes…


Sometime in October I decided to train for a full Iron. The day I entered and paid my entrance fee, I felt elated.  This feeling stuck!  Every morning I woke up with a big smile on my face. I leapt out of bed and packed my gym bag for whatever my coach had in store for me.  Well, guess what…the calendar year flipped over and bam!

On New Year’s Day I woke up, and I did not leap out of bed. I dragged my butt out, laced up, and ran for an hour around Niagara-On-The-Lake.  It was a beautiful morning, sunny and peaceful – perfect for a run.  But my stomach felt funny, like butterflies before a test.  I thought it was residual from my New Year’s Eve indulgence, but it hasn’t gone away.  I want to laugh, but honestly I am a little concerned.  If I am like this now, what am I going to be like in Aug? A complete basket case I suspect. 

I guess this is all part of it, and when the calendar year flipped over, so did my brain.  This is real, and it is now time to get serious.  As I train, I just hope my brain keeps up with my body.
