Slump City

I am knee-deep in a slump.  Officially and undeniably.  And it stinks.  I haven't run once since my 10 k race a week and two days ago.  Boo.  And although Baby Girl and I go for long walks almost every morning before work, I have absolutely zero motivation to run.  

I can sit here and type a whole list of excuses to make my sorry self feel better, but sadly there's no denying that it all boils down to plain old laziness.  Ouch.  I need to find a new challenge - and bit of variation.  Fast.

Which made me think...  I've been wanting to try a tri(athlon) for as long as I can remember.  I've even included it on my bucket list.  So why not now?  I have an amazing bike (which has been stripped of some parts - ahem, Will - and gathering dust in the garage); I have a membership to a gym with an amazing, heated pool; plus I have a pair of running shoes.  All sorted.   


My bike might need a bit of work...


... or a lot...

I'm not thinking anything crazy, like 70.3 or Ironman - I'm thinking more in the line of the BSG (Sprint) Triseries.  You know, a 600 m swim, 20 km bike and 5 k run.  Sounds doable, right?  I think so.            

Now if I can just get someone to fix my bike...

  1. That sounds like a great way to get some motivation and get you out of that slump. Luckily I plan way ahead and always have some race coming up. That keeps me on my toes.

  2. That totally sounds doable! I always need a race or a goal to motivate me, so I know the feeling.

    Your bike pictures made me smile. :)
