Apparently, I didn’t have enough going on. Some would say I lost my mind. Perhaps I have finally found my mind..and my PASSION, I’ll go with that!
It’s not like I have been laying around doing nothing. Two years ago ZuZu Pedals was born and it’s been a wild ride ever since. There is nothing like a new business to make you realize how much free time you used to have. Working seven days a week is a reality check into time management. It’s a fantastic thing to talk about bikes, buy bikes, sell bikes and dream bikes. Then one day a group of my riding friends stopped in and I realized i was no longer riding.. I was working. Everyone else was still riding. (Insert pouting and feet stomping here!!)
Oh, yeah..poor me! It was a terrible mourning period when I realized I had really done it this time. In chasing my dream I had given up one of my favorite things to do..EVER!!
After I got done sniffling and feeling sorry for myself I decided to make this the “ALL ABOUT ME YEAR”. It had a nice ring to it, so I made it my 2013 motto.
One morning after a group ride with the TRI OZAUKEE MULTI SPORT CLUB I let one of my friends talk me into setting a GOAL!!
DANG, I HATE GOAL SETTING!!..But ok, if everyone else is setting these goal things I guess I can too. “The difference between doing and not doing is making the choice to DO”
We have to agree to make time for ourselves to train. This does include early morning swims and evening rides and runs.
You will need to PRIORITIZE and stop being so hard on yourself for lost time and slow progress. You must agree to LAUGH and meet your FRIENDS (whom you find you keep making along the way) for long runs and COFFEE after.
Somewhere along the way you realize that EVERYONE is as busy as you in one way or another. EVERYONE is struggling to improve their fitness, and working hard to fit it all in. EVERYONE you surround yourself with on this journey, is
wanting to find time for:
life, love, & family with a good dose of personal time to just enjoy the ride.. Stay tuned we are 13 weeks away from this DANG GOAL.
So anyhow, I signed up for a HALF IRON MAN..Say what??..
