It is scary to see that 2015 is coming to an end. It will soon be Halloween, then Thanksgiving and Christmas is just around the corner. I’m sure I will have my end of the year recap, but for the time being this has been an awesome year. I will leave the details for that post, but in the meantime all I’m saying is that when you love everything you are doing, have your loved ones close by (or at least closer), your training is filled with fun places and beautiful scenery, jobs are what you wanted, I’d say you are in a pretty good place. The most important part of all is that you are having fun in general. Not that we didn’t before. We miss our tri and non-Tri friends but it just seems like we are in a better place in our lives.
You haven’t seen much of our Ironman Cozumel training, not because I don’t have anything to share. Mainly because I just didn’t want to bore you with the details of our daily grinding. Our weeks are filled with work, swim, bike, run, eat, sleep, repeat. Some weeks are better than others, we try to #WinTheDay on a daily basis. We have been at it since July and to be honest with you, haven’t been feeling as burnt as I was last year at this time. Raceday is 35 days away, and while our bodies feel the load of the peak weeks, our minds are there. We got some weak times but in general we both know how to deal with those and push through or simply help dig each other out of those dark places that Ironman training can throw you in. It happens when you are doing 6 hrs of a bike ride in your basement watching Netflix. As entertaining as it can be, it gets old after the first hour. In general, the weeks go by relatively quick, the weekends too and honestly I can’t believe that in 4 weeks we will be packing to get our bodies to the start line. In two weeks we drop off our bikes to get shipped and that’s when it get real :).
Anyways, didn’t want to bore you with many of the details, but all I have to say is have fun, enjoy the day and you will see how day by day the time goes quick. Your body and mind tend to respond better when in general you are happy. Always remember why you do all this. Being healthy, active and find your motivation. You will be surprised how a bad day, a crappy workout, a dragging swim can turn to a pretty good one because you go back to what got you started in the first place.
