GOALS FOR THE SUMMER

Burger-heartattack

When I think of working out I think of a big fat juicy cheeseburger and that's just wrong.  Over the years I have found ways to get away from the eating visualizations and into my fitness visualizations or "goals" as I like to call them. 

Its always good to have a goal.  Whether you achieve it or not its just good to have.  As I have a mentioned in the past I like to have goals as they help me visualize a beginning, middle and end with my tasks.  Deep down goals scare the crap out of me but I really love that aspect of them.  Scare tactics always seem to work...especially with the monkeys. 

This summer I have already signed up for 4 events and 1 is in a holding pattern.

  1. Women's 5K by the Bay -  4/26
  2. Catoctine Challenge 150 mile ride - 6/26
  3. Diamond in the Rough Sprint Triathlon in Maryland - 7/11
  4. Northeast Olympic Triathlon in Maryland - 8/16
  5. Trek Women's Triathlon Series (Date TBD)

So there you have it.  I've only done 3 of these events last year and they all proved to be big fun but very challenging.  So once again I will start/continue training and hope to have a strong finish with all events.

Now that I have my goals lined up I will crack a beer, eat a cheeseburger and think about them.  Just kidding.  I will start riding a lot more outside and try to eat a bit more protein and a little less fat...ok, a lot less fat.  Is that possible?  We'll see.
