My legs are so skinny, I had to make sure both were in the photo so you can actually read what these old socks have to say!
I feel like I am coming back. Now that there is less stress on my body (really in my head), I can push through and get back to training.
If you know me, I train like I am heading to the Olympics in 2020. I love running and staying active. It's like breathing_literally for me! I must have it to SuRvIVe! LOL!
Now that I am healthier and have officially fought off that nasty cold/flu monster, I am ready to get back out there and compete. The journey back has been challenging but I am happy that I am moving and grooving again.
My goals are to increase my upper body strength, endurance and running performance. I would love to go for Team USA in my age division for duathlons but I still have a lot to learn when it comes to road cycling. So, time will tell.
Whatever your goals are this year, I hope you are taking significant steps (big or small) to get yourself closer to your goals. There will be setbacks but that doesn't mean you are set...back! It's just a little bump in the road, a lesson to be learned or simply a time to completely rest your body. Keep your eyes on the prize, don't look back and keep your goals close to your heart. You will get there!
