Life sure has been busy the last few months. Busy NOT training I might add! My eye recovery took longer than I expected so by the time I could see again for more than 5 minutes at a time I had to buckle down and get some studying done.
I am truly amazed by those that devote their lives to furthering their education. Don't get me wrong- I love to learn and challenge myself but the stress of trying to cram in all that info into my brain while working full time was wearing on me. Something had to go and training didn't make the cut.
So I am two months away from my first triathlon of the season, my first Olympic triathlon ever and I am starting back at square one!! Not the most ideal situation but I feel better having completed my course, my eyes are healed and I can training without stressing about what I should be doing.
On another note, hubby and I are supposed to be in Europe right now. That lovely volcano eruption in Iceland derailed our plans so we are stuck at home for now. We have re booked for May 13th so in 3 short weeks we will be back on our way. We are a little disappointed to not be there now but glad that we avoided the chaos that is going on with flights to and from Europe right now.
Back to training- I need to make up another training program for myself. Hubby and I decided that UCTC isn't worth it for the spring session since almost all the training is outside and we can do that for free at our convenience. I am sad to not be training with a big group but I dislike the rigid schedule. The only challenge will be to find a decent pool nearby but that won't break the bank. I miss my Canyon Meadows pool in the south! I can't believe the lack of city pools in NW Calgary!
I have lots of blogs to catch up on now! Reading about everyone else's training should motivate me!
