Its been a bit of a hectic month to say the least. One of those months where you can’t help but feel a bit discouraged. It started off with a flu, that turned into an incessant cold that just doesn’t want to go away, coupled with work and life stresses, it was a less than ideal training month. It wasn’t terrible, but definitely could have been better. Its tough as a Type A personality to be able to cope when Life gets in the way of your plans and goals! Seems silly but feeling out of control to me is one of the hardest feelings to deal with.
All month I have trained and taught people that are crushing their January goals. All the while feeling like I am falling further behind, the reality of Ironman being 7 months away has never left my mind.
This post is one of those self-declaration type posts. We hosted a goal setting evening at my studio this past month, and one of the biggest and hardest parts about goal setting is posting your goals and holding yourself accountable. This morning I woke up feeling well rested and the healthiest I have felt all month (still not 100% but definitely getting there) with the realization that there are still 2 days left in January. I have time to end this month on a strong note and set the tone for the months ahead. Ive said it before and I’ll say it again, this type of training is all about one day at a time, some days are better than others but getting up an trying each day is what counts at the end of the day.
I wanted to share a wicked motivational video that has been getting me pumped up for my morning workouts:
