If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere. ~Frank A. Clark~
Things haven’t gone exactly as I had planned over the last couple weeks but who am I to assume that the plan I create(d) will lead me down the correct path? The best I can do is have faith that the path I am on now will lead in the direction which I am “supposed” to be headed……and hopefully make me stronger and wiser because of it!
So I sit and enjoy the summer as much as possible. It seems almost wrong to be sitting with my feet
wrapped in ice up and “chilling” but that’s all that I can do for now. My work and family schedule doesn’t allow much time for swimming but I do have the bike on the trainer in front of the big screen now. I managed 10 miles in 34 minutes last night. Not a big ride as I didn’t have the time but that’s pushing the pace for me on the trainer since I have no hills to throw in a little extra speed. I have never been strong on the bike, even weaker on the trainer. Possibly this entire process, which requires no running since I’m still not walking very well, will improve my bike? Possibly help me develop more focused, efficient power? Help me look like I’m serious instead of out for a joy ride?
We’ll see. I always say that if “it’s easy, then it’s not worth it”. This isn’t easy so I am going to assume that I am going to learn something or become better in some way as a result of this process. We’ll see.
What are you up to this summer? Any big races or are you focusing on slowing down?
