Not sure an Olympic is in the cards for me this year

The volume of my posting correlates precisely with the volume of training that I’m doing.  Ahh… talk about off track.  I’ve taking my measurements monthly, but not much movement on that front, and the weight is sssssllllooooowwwwllllly coming off.  The latter is more of a fluke than a true effort.

I’m reevaluating what my objectives should be for this year and what my priorities are.  There are many competing things in my head: loose weight, get strong, build core strength, compete in triathlon, built up cardio endurance, ensure low saturated fat diet, etc., etc..  

In theory many or most of these should go hand in hand nicely.  For me, as I try to focus on more than one at a time, I loose track of them all.  What I want to figure out now is at the end of 2009, what do I want to have accomplished, what’s going to make me feel good about myself as I watch the 2010 Olympics and what’s going to set me up for my next set of goals, objectives and activities.  

That’s a whole lot of fancy objective talk and it’s coming from a girl who’s wanted to be curled up in a ball in bed this whole week. The family is coming of of +3 weeks of non-stop flu, cold, flu combos and landed 3/4 of us on antibiotics this week.  We’re a mess.  At least it’s given me time to think about what I want to tackle once I’m back on my feet.

  1. In need of some motivation? My wife gave me a great gift for Christmas – 50/50, the story of Dean Karnazes running 50 marathons in 50 days in 50 different states. An easy read, but very inspiring!
