Ok, ok, I trained for and completed a Half Ironman. And I took some time off to recover and relax. Then I went to spectate and support the Lake Placid Ironman. And during all that time I have managed to not find a shred of my training mojo. What is mojo you ask? Well, urban dictionary defines it as:1. Self-confidence, Self-assuredness. As in basis for belief in ones self in a situation. Esp. I context of contest or display of skill such as sexual advances or going into battle.
2. Good luck fetish / charm to bolster confidence.
3. ability to bounce back from a debilitating trauma and negative attitude He lost his mojo when she dumped him…
He got his mojo back now.
I’m not sure if that’s exactly what I’m looking for, but I know for sure that whatever my mojo is, I have successfully lost it. I keep thinking about finding a training plan. And then the thought passes and I carry on with my day. Or, I actually write out a training plan for the week and promptly procede to ignoring it. I have no idea what my deal is!
What I do know is that I have some races on the horizon, so I have got to shake this funk. I have the Ragnar Adirondack Relay Ultra & the Mohawk Hudson River Half Marathon on my schedule, with a couple of other races that I’m still thinking about registering for. I have got to get back on track.
So today is the day! I have sketched out a plan for my week and whatever it takes I am going to work my butt off to actually get all of the training in. And I am going to use the blog and you to hold me accountable. So, come Sunday I should be writing a training report for the week. Look for it here…. or ask me where the heck it is! No more Ms. Lazy, starting today!
