I've lost it

I knew that being off the last five months because of feet injuries could lead to difficulties getting back in the game; I just didn't believe it could be this difficult.

The pain in my feet comes and goes. Just when I think the pain has left the body, a whisper of its existence reaches out to the soles of my feet. I will finally see the physical therapist. I promise. Really I will.

The least I could do, of course, is to strength train in the interim, right?

Yes. Of course!

I went to the Y on a Monday night three weeks ago and did a little of that. I haven't been back since.

I could also be swimming, too, right?

Yes. Of course!

Unfortunately, my swim suit is ruined and I haven't had the chance to travel an hour to a big city to shop for a replacement.

I have to be brutally honest with myself: I've gotten out of the habit, succumbed to laziness, have lost the fire and motivation to kick butt when it comes to triathlon training and am clearly making excuses.

I think I need to register for a half iron-distance race which will, I guarantee, scare me into getting motivated.

That really is what I'm going to have to do. I've got my eyes on the half-distance portion of the American Triple-T in Portsmouth, OH. I will definitely have more to share with you about that race in an upcoming post, so be on the lookout.

Cheers and Merry Christmas, everyone!

I hope you like hills!!! We are working on a blogger meetup at TTT in 2013, kinda a "Texas Bloggers vs the Rest of the World"

I will email this weekend about the basics of Team Roll to see if your interested.

I hate hills, but I have a friend who's created a DVD to train specifically for the course and will be using that for advantage. I'll be blogging about these DVDs soon. I will look forward to the email. Have an awesome weekend!

Karen said...

Yes! sign up for the race, that will help you "find" it. :)

Lora Abernathy said...

Yes, Karen, that will probably be my Christmas present to myself.

Triple T has fascinated me for a long inner masochist that is! Go to and buy a grab bag suit for $20, I promise it will be horrible ugly but functional. Or if you want to spend a lot and get a REALLY good suit (of epically ugly proportions) go to splish - they are fabulous suits and you can customize them.

Grab bag suit, huh? I was planning on perusing the site to see if there was anything that caught my eye. I will TOTALLY check that out. Thanks, Alili!
