I’m tired of being sick.
I have been on a three-week stretch with some sort of sickness. I have had two different variations of the stomach bug and now I’ve got a stupid cold. Yes, I said stupid. It’s making me feel like crap when right now what I need is to feel strong.
After Sunday’s tri, I’m more nervous than ever about completing Tinman 70.3 at the end of June. But I can say that and in the next breath say that I completed the loop of the IMLP bike course in a reasonable time (for me) and felt good for almost all of the ride. (I seriously need to learn how to fuel on the bike, but again, a story for another day).
So today, I’m putting my foot down. I’m putting it down on feeling sick, on being tired, on having too much to do and on just not wanting to prioritize me. I’m done with excuses. I will make time for me and for training. I need it more now than ever. It makes me feel accomplished, strong, determined and purposeful. I want to be purposeful. I want to cross that finish line with my head held high, not regretting one move that I made along the way.
With 7 weeks to go, I’m putting my foot down. And I’m remembering that I can do this. One foot in front of the other, I can and I will.
How about you?
