- In January I had no intention of buying a bike. It wasn't until maybe March sometime that I thought it may be fun to have a bike that I can actually ride around and do stuff on. So in April I bought my bike.
- I kinda liked riding the bike so I thought some form of a race would be fun. So I signed up for my first du 9 days before the race.
- I wanted to keep going on the multi-sport thing so I signed up for my first tri in just over 8 weeks. I'll have my next marathon two weeks later.
So when I mentioned the tri thing to someone their response was to ask how I would fit everything in. Good point...
- I want to run 4 days a week
- I have boot camp twice a week
- I'd like to try and swim and make it to yoga once or twice a week
- I want to bike into work on any day when the weather allows it
- I really want to hike and camp whenever I can
So when you add all of this up, plus the fact that I work, when does non-exercising "me" time come in? And can I do each and every one of those activities that I mentioned above as often as I want to? Should I be doing that much? I know that all of the non-running activities that I've been doing are making me a better runner. But I don't want to become so one-dimensional that my life is work, exercise, eat, sleep, repeat. Um...but I think that almost is the case. I guess lucky for me that I'm not married and that I don't have kids. I should qualify all of this by saying that I am a much happier me when I am so active versus when I was more of a couch potato and I had plenty of non-exercising "me" time. So...I'm thinking about dropping to 3 days of running a week since I have all of these crosstraining activities, and we'll see what happens from there.
