Drive, Dreams, and looking

It has been a while since I posted.  I am searching. Searching for something that I am not sure what it is.  I’m looking.  Part of me thinks, a metamorphosis must take place.  Another part of me thinks, the something I am searching may already be found, it just needs to be awaken.  I’m still driven.

I am deep in the throws of Triathlon training.  Its been more difficult this year.  The weather, work, and responsibilities have been throwing wrenches in my training plans.  Yet, I train.  I admit that without my already committing to a triathlon this year, I’m sure I would not be training this hard.  I’ve tried my best to workout six days a week.  My goal has been Run on Mondays, Swim on Tuesdays, Bike on Wednesdays, Swim on Thursdays, Run on Fridays, and Bike on Saturdays.  Rest on Sunday.  Since, I’ve ramped up my training plan over the past month or so, I’ve had to change training days all over the place.  I still have been able to get two Runs, two Swims, and two Bikes in each week, but just not on the planned days.

I’m still debating some intermediary races.  Possibly the local triathlon in early July or maybe the sprint triathlon in late july as a warm-up for the Chicago Triathlon at the end of August.  I’m not sure yet if I am up to the standard distance yet for the early race.

I have to say as I’ve increased my training I feel much better.  I love it!  Although, I’ve been watching calories in, and I’m a little sleepy at times. I’ve lost some of the winter weight gain, but I still have a little bit more to go.

So, back to dreams and looking… I’m still searching… when I find it, I’ll let you know.
