As usual its Saturday morning and I am up before 6AM. During the past week I twice (yes twice) slept in my bed until 8:10, leaving myself just 20 minutes to get into work. However, without a doubt on Saturday morning on pretty much the same amount of sleep I am up before 6AM and ready to go. I guess that goes to show you how much the “stress” of the day factors in. Being that I have all day to do whatever I want, swim when I want to swim and bike when I want to bike makes all the difference. Sometimes the simple fact that during the weekdays I am always trying to fit things in around my work schedule which is arbitrarily 8:30 – 5:30. I honestly believe that If I could work my own 8 hours a day I would be a much happier person, regardless of the work I was doing. However, I like most triathletes and athletic people in general are the minority. The majority of people don’t wake up at 4AM to exercise.
I don’t have much else interesting to talk about at the moment. Today will be great Saturday, I’ll be heading back home to the lake is a little while and going out for a relaxing bike ride later on in the day. This weekend will all be low key workouts in preparation for beginning the next training block next week. I’ve said it before and I will say it again. I’ve got a lot of work to do before IMFL on November 5th. Hopefully the weather in the Northeast (post-Irene of course) will stay relatively mild and make those final weeks in October bearable.
As a side note, I will be selling my Aeolus 6.5 wheelset, so if interested please let know. See full posting with pictures HERE
